Stampin’ Up! 2017-2019 In Colours
I adore the Fable Friends stamp set and just had to use it for my Easter projects. This card is created using the paper piecing technique. This is where you stamp onto some pretty designer paper and then cut sections of it out and glue to another stamped image. You can see I’ve done it with the ducks jacket and top of her hat! I used the pretty Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper. I love the Rectangle stitched framelits and the Silver Glimmer edging was cut with the Decorative Border Punch. The sentiment is created using the Well Said stamp set and coordinating Well Written framelits (purchase these together as the bundle to save 10%).
Here’s a closer look! I used my Blender Pen with the inkpads to add some Gray Granite to her feathers, Pineapple Punch for her beak and feet and Powder Pink for the hat and ribbon around her neck. The grass is stamped with Lemon Lime Twist and then I sponged some of the same colour using a sponge dauber. I also did this for the sky with Balmy Blue ink.
My next project is a Divided Gift Box with 3 sections in it and a window in the top to entice you inside! The tag was simply created using the Well Said bundle as used in the first project. I had to tie some of this gorgeous variegated ribbon around it too.
Ooh and look what’s inside?!!! I mean, who doesn’t love a little chocolate treat at this time of year?!!!
What you need to make this box:
Base: 14.5cm x 14.5cm, score at 2.5cm on all 4 side

To cut the window in the centre of the lid, place it in your Stampin’ Trimmer lining the left side at 3.8cm. Lift the cutting arm and move the blade to 3.8cm, place down onto the cardstock and cut to 11cm. Rotate & repeat this on the other 3 sides.
