While I was playing around with the rose from the Create Embellish Adore blog I found another great idea that I had to try! I changed it around a bit but such a cute idea!
The hearts are punched using the Full Heart Punch. The bride is using the Finial Press embossing folder with the Big Shot. The necklace is non-Stampin' Up mini pearls. The Groom is 1/4" black grosgrain ribbon for the bow tie and I punched out a white heart and just cut the shirt part out. The black buttons are marker. The black and white paper is the retired Specialty DSP and of course the Lattice die cut for the background. The ribbon is Organza with white half pearls from the Pretties Kit on top!
Now I'm just trying to figure out what to do with it!
I was playing around with my Manhattan Flower embossing folder and this is what I came up with. The leaves are just pieces of another embossed rose cut out and sponged with ink.
The ribbon is regal rose 5/8” grosgrain with the organza ribbon taped right on top! I thought this looked so pretty and was really easy to do. The tape runner fits right down the center solid part on the organza ribbon to stick them together. The embossing folder for the background is the petals-a plenty-folder from the last mini which I think you can still order now.
I think these are my new all-time favorite Easter cards yet! I love these little baby chicks dressed up as the Easter bunny! I liked them so much I thought I would make a mini partial tutorial for how to make them.
You will need:
Large Oval Punch
Wide Oval Punch
1 3/8” Circle Punch
5 Petal Flower Punch
Cutter kit distressing tool (keychain)
Welcome Neighbor DSP (sale-a-bration)
Smarty Pants stamp set
A Good Egg stamp set
Pumpkin Pie cardstock
So Saffron cardstock
So Saffron ink
Taken with Teal cardstock
Regal Rose cardstock
Whisper White cardstockOld Olive cardstock
White gel pen
Basic black ink
Punch out a shape like this with Whisper white and the 5 petal flower punch. Punch a 1 3/8" circle out of So Saffron. Distress the edges with the distressing tool on the keychain.
Punch one petal with the 5 petal flower punch out of So Saffron. Cut the little marks in it to make the chicks wing.
Using the 5 petal flower punch, punch out two petals from Regal Rose. Cut off the center like shown to make the inside of the bunny ears.
This is what the ears should look like. Then I put them over the chick and trimmed the bottom edges to fit. I used markers and a sponge to distress the edges before I put things together and a white gel pen for highlights.
The beaks are cut out of Pumkin Pie cardstock and the feet are drawn on. The sayings are punched using the wide and large oval punches. The cracked eggs are stamped and cut out with crystal effects on them.

The eggs are Summer Sun sponged with Apricot Appeal ink. The whites are sponged on the edges with Going gray. The bacon is close to cocoa with more mustard, really rust, close to cocoa and creamy caramel ink on them. Highlights are with the white gel pen.
