Easter Treats

Can you believe its April already?!  Where has the year gone?  And of course we've been having amazing spring weather and just because Easter is this weekend they're predicting a wonderful snow storm to come thru and wreak havoc on everyone's travel plans....including mine!  Today's post is one of the projects from Stamp Club this week.  It's a very simple project that can easily be duplicated on a larger scale for class treats.  This wonderful idea came from a very talented demonstrator, Michelle Last, from England.  Check her out here.  I have found some awesome blogs from some very talented British demonstrators! 

Your paper is cut 3" x 8" and you score at 1", 4 1/2", 4 3/4", and 5".  The little chick is created with the bird builder punch.  Just take your punched bird and reinsert him thru the top of the punch and punch off the tail feathers so he looks more like a chick.  You do the same thing with the wing.  Using a sponge dauber brush the edges of the chick with more mustard.  Draw in his beak and eyes with an early espresso marker. Once you attach to the front, also draw in his legs with early espresso marker. 

Cardstock:   Crumb cake, so saffron

Stamp set:  Delightful Dozen, Pocket Silhouettes

Accessories:  Eyelet border punch, Extra-large oval punch, Bird builder punch, 3/8" pink pirouette taffeta ribbon, 3" x 5" cellophane bags
