Happy Easter Chickie!!

Happy Spring! The weather here in NJ has been just gorgeous these past few days. I hope we don't see another snow flake before the lion has turned all the way to lamb. This week's challenge over at Our Creative Corner is to make a spring/Easter themed card or project. I was inspired to try some new things with this one. This is my first digi stamp project. This adorable Pure Innocence image is from Heather Ellis.

For the layout, I used Jen Del Muro's SFYTT from 3/13/2010. It is such a fun sketch, and I though it would work well with my little chickie.
I also tried a new technique for popping images outside the boundaries of your Nestabilities. Click HERE to view the Youtube video tutorial on this technique. I used my new egg die , Egg Hunt Stamps and Egg Hunt Patterned Paper from Papertrey Ink. All so fun! I just love this little girl, and I love the way this card came out. New toys, new technique, new season. Here are the ingredients:
Papers-Elegant Eggplant, Barely Banana, Neenah Solar White, Egg Hunt patterned paper.
Ink-VersaFine Onyx Black, Versa Mark.
Stamps-Pure Innocence PI025, Egg Hunt, SU's A Good Egg.
Accessories-Nestabilities, white embossing powder, heat tool, Dimensionals, mat pack & piercing tool, Sakura white glaze pen, Copic markers, Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie & Old Olive 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Hero Arts acid free adhesive crystals.
