Honeycomb Happiness Easter Card in a Box

Well it’s March already! That means there is just under one month left to get all the Sale-a-bration goodies you are after! LESS than ONE MONTH! Arrgghhhhhhhh….do you have all of yours yet???

One of my favourites would have to be Honeycomb Happiness. It is soon cute and easy to use – especially when you combine it with matching designer paper, such as the Birthday Bouquet as I have done in the past.

This project was a little different.  I was requested to make a couple of Easter Cards.   Now I LOVE easter – i am a self confessed chocoholic!  But I don’t do very many Easter cards…..AT ALL!  But with the limited Easter Sets we have this year, I knew that little chicken from the Honeycomb Happiness set was going to be perfect. And because it fit the brief for the SUO challenge 143 for March, I thought I would play along with that too! It’s the first time I have played along with the SUO challenges, but those of you who visit regularly know that I quite like a challenge! You can find all the info for the SUO challenges here.

And I love a card in a box for a bit of a fancy card…. so here is what I came up with…..

How cute is that! I LOVE how it turned out.  I started by picking a nice floral piece of DSP from the wildflower fields DSP (another Sale-a-bration freebie with a $90 spend).  I then build my box and colours around that.  That’s one of the best things about Stampin Up! Everything coordinates!  I featured colours Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey when building this card.

I used the Sprinkles of Life set for my little easter basket – and can you guess how I made the little easter eggs???? I used the little spoon from our new Cups and Kettles Framelits Dies. I just trimmed off the spoon tip and stamped with some mini stamps (the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp set is perfect for this, but you could use any little stamps you have!) And to save me colouring my chicken, I just stamped him directly onto some Hello Honey Cardstock. Too Easy!!!!

Sprinkles of Life Thank You Tree

I had a request from a lovely customer of mine to make a Thank You card.  She was looking at the photos on my Facebook page and saw one that Sara had demonstrated at convention last year, using the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set. And yes, that’s the one she wanted!

I love to please my customers so I set about creating it for her.  I was thrilled with the way it came out.

I didn’t have quite all the elements that Sara had used.  I was missing the natural elements ‘thanks’ or the speciality DSP she used, but I had some suitable alternatives!

I used my Hardwood stamp and smokey slate ink for the woodgrain background and my Hello You thinlets Dies for the thanks.  To make it thicker and shiny I simply cut three of the ‘thanks’ and adhered them on top of each other.  I then used crystal effects to cover the stack and let dry on my silicone mat – nothing sticks to that sucker! Its a great technique to jazz up dies of any kind!

I hope you like it!

Happy crafting-
