Simply Stampin' Challenge week 3

Thank you to everyone who joined us for last weeks colour challenge at Simply Stampin' challenge, the standard of entries was very high and I enjoyed looking at the projects.

This week our new challenge at Simply Stampin' is Easter, so this one should be a little easier as we start to get those last minute cards and gifts made.

I have gone for some bright and zingy colours Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango.  Of course I had to use A Good Egg stamp set too!!

I have stamped and coloured the chicks with the blender pens, then layered them up with the square punches, the background of the card was stamped with the dots from the set in Tangerine Tango ink. A length of Daffodil Delight satin ribbon and a punched greeting made this a fast card to make.  I used some Brights designer paper to make my sour cream holder, filled with mini eggs and then I used the crimper tool to seal the ends.

This basket is really easy to make and will hold 3 cream eggs, I also stamped the tissue paper to match. I will add the eggs just before I give it away as I'm sure those little fingers will be looking for chocolate next week!!

I do hope you can join us at Simply Stampin' this week - there is a top three blinkie to be won and the chance to win some fabulous Stampin' Up! goodies at the end of the month!!  You only need to use one Stampin' Up! product and you can make anything you choose - cards, 3D items, scrapbook pages.  There are some beautiful projects from the design team again this week, you can see them here.

The three squares with the chick peeping out are really effective. I also like your idea of stamping the tissue paper to match....x
