Chick A Dees

Well I did say that I would show you what I came up with for those little Chick-A-Dees I created a few days ago and here they are. I liked how they turned out. As advised in my earlier post, the chicks were inspired by the talented Andrea Walford (see her card and post here).

Okay let me just say - I am in love with the new products from Stampin' Up! that will be launched on the 1st April in the new Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue. Here is a sneak peak of the Fancy Favor Box which uses the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine (I have been hanging out to get my hands on this machine).

You can only just see in these photos that the chicks have some Dazzling Diamonds along the edge of their egg - he he I think its kinda cute.

I have cut the Fancy Favor box out of the Kaleidoscope DSP (I think it has the perfect colours for Easter). I used the 1 3/4" punch and some acetate to create a window in the front.

Now if you cut out the Fancy Favor box don't throw out the left over paper after the box is cut, it gives a really cute edge that is just perfect to use on cards.

I didn't have any blue ribbon, so I took some white grosgrain ribbon and coloured it with my Baja Breeze stamp pad and my Tempting Turquoise marker.

Hope you like and I will be back soon with more sneak peeks.
