Happy Easter Chick CTC#71



This week at CASE-ing The Catty we are CASE-ing Easter - from any catalogue. I scanned the Occasions catalogue and found inspiration on page 24 with a card using the Easter lamb stamp and a bag with a star-shaped window cut out. The Stampin' Up!® artists who design all the projects for the catalogues do a fabulous job. It's always worthwhile CASE-ing the catalogue samples to get your own creativity happening. You can change up the colours, or stamps and Framelits, or even begin by copying it outright - that's the whole point of CASE-ing.                                                                                                                                                            I was really glad that Suite Sayings had this lovely big Easter stamp included. You'll find this set of 10 varied sentiments on page 41 of the Occasions Catalogue. Honeycomb Happiness is a SALE-A-Bration stamp set, and that is finishing up on March 31st, so not long left now for you to place your $90 order and get a free item, like Honeycomb Happiness.

The card I CASE-d is on page 24 of the Occasions Catalogue. The artists water coloured the grass and sky around the lamb, but I've used another stamp set to help me out.
Sprinkles Of Life decorated the card with fluffy clouds and small flowers. It will definitely be retiring at the end of May, because it is an annual stamp set dedicated to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House. In fact, $3 of each sale of Sprinkles Of Life goes to Ronald McDonald House in Australia, where I live. Whichever country you make your purchase in, that is where the donation to RMCH is made. Isn't that a great idea? You can find it on the inside of the back cover of the Annual catalogue. It comes in handy for building a scene like I have here around the chick.

It's time for me to get a move on and make some more of these little bags to hold some treats for Easter. It's easy to do with a Gift Bag Punch Board. The paper is 15cm by 25.5cm to make a small bag. At the top I've made a flap closure and the smallest oval has been used to cut a window. The chick from Honeycomb Happiness has been lightly watercolored and adhered partially covering the window.

You can stop by and visit by pressing the next button or pop back to see Judy's amazing project
  

or keep on hopping forward to Kathryn to see her cute Easter treats.




Cheers, Rachel
