Easter Greetings!
by Jeanne Jachna


I'm super EGG-cited about the new Spring Release in the store ! You'll find everything you need for Easter and Spring designs!   Check it out here! 
Lots of super cute images that are lots of fun!   Do you love that striped background?  Let me show you how I made it! 
I started my card with a Spun Sugar Distress Ink card panel.
Next I put the Decorated Egg Sidekick Frame over the panel and inked in the window with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.
Finally I painted stripes with a Worn Lipstick Distress Ink Refill.  If you don't have a re-inker just smoosh some on a plastic or glass matt and use a water brush to paint with.  I added some splatter too (water, watered down Worn Lipstick, and white ink).
I topped the inky panel with the Decorated Egg Sidekick Frame, Decorated Egg Stitched Frame, and Doodle Happy Easter die cuts.  It looks great "as is" but I wanted to add more color.  I have great memories of coloring Easter Eggs.  My brother and sisters would get so mad at me for "hogging" a color.  I would keep  my eggs submerged for longer than they liked so I could get a deep rich color. 
I added a little Chick and Egg die cut.  I put a bitty piece of orange card stock behind the die cut beak opening  to add color.
I adhered colorful Folk Decorated Eggs at a slight offset from the Decorated Egg Sidekick Frame so you could see the white pierced eggs peeking out.  I love all that fabulous stitching - it looks so fussy and elegant! 

You're going to love the new release!  Yes!  We'll be having a blog blitz too!  So you'll have a chance to win some for yourself.  The blitz will start on March 2.

Have a great weekend!

Hi Jeanne, This is such a 'happy' card, the chick looks so 'happy' to be born. I love everything about this card.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

an Eggs-cellent card! so colorful and fun!

Sweet card! Love the Chick and Egg and the Decorated Eggs!

Love the card and the eggs ... eggspecially...! Also, could you describe the product (palette?) that is holding the reinker ink? I'd love something like that with a lid. Thanks.

Super cute, Jeanne! Love your background!
