Everybunny chick - you've been framed!

Sorry to have gone missing in action this weekend; it was a sleepover weekend here - need I say more?! - and I'm just catching up now. At Less is More this week, the theme is Frame it - perfect for show-casing the Easter chick I had lined up for Addicted to CAS's current Wings cue word! I've used up lots of scraps in my card today so I think I'll pop over for a romp in Di's Snippet Playground too! Come and see my card:


My favourite frame at the moment is made using the oval Designer Frames embossing folder and then cutting it out with one of the Labels framelits. I mounted the Crumb Cake frame on same-coloured card stock and accented with a little flower and leaf embellishment made with an Itty Bitty punch and the 2-step bird punch.


This adorable chick is from Stampin' Up's Everybunny set - which contains some gorgeous Easter images which can also be used all year round. I coloured my chick with markers and paper-pieced the shell using Naturals White card stock - I love the shell-like texture this has.


I wanted the sentiment to really pop so I stamped it in versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder. TIP: If you find you get specks of embossing where you don't want it, try wiping your card stock with the embossing buddy before stamping and embossing - it really does make a huge difference.

Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Everybunny, Delightful Dozen
Ink: Pool Party, Early Espresso, More Mustard + markers
Card stock: Crumb Cake, scraps of Whisper White, Rose Red, Certainly Celery, Naturals White
Punches: Itty Bitty punch pack, 2-step bird punch
Other: Labels framelits, Designer Frames embossing folder, Big Shot, Basic Pearls, versamark, white embossing powder, heat tool.

When my oldest son heard that the house was going to be invaded by my youngest son's friends, he promptly organised sleeping over at one of his friends that night. It is extraordinary how someone who finds organising general day-to-day tidying and homework a bit of a challenge can be ragingly efficient when it comes to something he wants to do! I protested about his sleepover, asking how on earth he was going to get things done while feeling sleep-deprived. He looked at me with those huge blue eyes and gave me a hug. "Don't worry," he said. "When I get back I'll be your little napkin!" I melted and before I could remember to be a tough mum, he'd disappeared out of the door!

Thank you for popping in today. See you tomorrow!

  24. How cute is this ? Very pretty Vicky and top marks for no specks of EP. I'm too tight to buy an anti-static bag and use talcum powder in a pop-sock!
