The Birds are Chirping in Spring

This month we are celebrating spring at ABC Design Team and what better icon of the season than little birdies.   On this card I used something a little different...the packaging from a Spellbinders die..yeap that's right the package itself.  I just cut out the clear plastic to make a sheet and stamped it with Staz On ink, let it dry, cut it out, pierced a small hole and added jump rings to make these adorable clear bird cage charms. The stamp sets I used for this card are all from Crafty Secrets and they are all so detailed  it's wonderful.  The bird cages and the flourishes are from Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps Birdies at home and the main bird, note, sentiment and bird feet are from Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps Bird Notes.

Here is a close up of the detailing of the card to give you a bit of a better view. 
Now we want you, it's your turn to join the fun.  Get out your stamps and cardstock and create a beautiful Easter card and enter it in our April ABC DT Challenge and you might just win $25 in free goodies. 

I hope you all have a great weekend...remember taxes are due Monday (had to ruin my post with that, LOL)

Easter is Almost Here

I love Easter, it's one of my favorite holidays.  Granted the true meaning of Easter is what truly makes it precious, but I have to admit, I also love the little bunnies, chics and chocolate.  Here is a Easter card I made celebrating the season with a sweet little bunny. 

I really like the way I stamped the image five times, colored it with my copics and then cut it with stacking Spellbinders Nesties.  I hope you enjoy.
