More from Sue Allen!

We get a double dose of Sue Allen today!!! Hurray!!!! :)

This project is an Easter Basket created from an envelope. I made these for my ATC group and filled them with...Chocolate of course! Using the new release Birdhouse stamps is such fun...there are so many possibilities. First seal the envelope and put the bottom half through your die-cut machine with a folder of choice. I coloured it with chalks and added small ribbon flowers. The birdhouse is coloured with prisma pencils and OMS (my fav way to colour), highlighted with a stardust pen and popped on a foam dot. The branches are punched in three colours of green. The large flowers are die-cut, backed with mulberry paper and glittered to death! (Large surprise LOL) 'Happy Easter' greeting is from Class Act vertical greetings which I cut apart so it could be staggered. Add a ribbon for the final touch.

Be sure to get outside and enjoy the fine spring weather...if we ever get any!

Well we are already in the beginning of May and the spring flowers are beginning to bloom. The fine weather is bound to get here sooner or later and the birds will be nesting. This nice large birdhouse is just the right size for cutting, colouring and adding embellishments. The roof was stamped separately from patterned paper then cut out and attached to the birdhouse which is then coloured with prisma pencils and OMS. The tiny coral flowers are punched and pressed in a die. The leaves are a sizzix die-cut and sparkly gems added to the roof and flower centres. The front of the card is pressed in a cuttlebug folder and a window is cut in the centre with more flowers and leaves showing through.

Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers...if you can find them! LOL
