GCA #35 - Happy Easter!!

Hello all!! For the GCA this week we are making Easter cards or projects! Next Sunday is Easter, and if you're like me at all, I still have Easter cards to make and mail out!!

Now my sample here is not an Easter card, but the name tag I wore to the SCS MI Mingle last weekend!! And I tied for winning with Debra!!! She had a gorgeous name tag!!

I started with a base of chipboard cut out of the Top Note die, which I then covered with a piece of Very Vanilla. The basket was made using Close to Cocoa text cardstock, and I sponged the edges with Choc Chip. Once I had this laid out the way I wanted, I then ran this through my Big Shot with the Top Note die.

The bunny is put together entirely with punches!!! My upline just started a punch art class last month and this is one of the pieces we did. I know I've seen these on SCS, so thanks to whoever came up with the bunny!! I used my scallop oval and large oval to make the "name tag" which my bunny is holding.

The eggs are cut using my oval Fiskars cutter in two different sizes. I used scraps of dsp and ran the Apricot Appeal through my crimper. I then used my glitter pen over my name on the plain eggs for added sparkle.

My handle is made with the felt from the Alpine Originals and attached with brown brads. A piece of Pink Pirouette striped gg finishes it off! I ran a length of Cert. Celery gg around the back to make a lanyard for it.

To be entered in the challenge drawing, make a card or project focusing on Easter, upload it either to your blog, or to an online gallery and post a link to your card to this blog entry as a comment by April 11, 2009 at 12 midnight. I will choose the winner through a random number generator and post the next Sunday.

Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenge and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it! If you upload your card on SCS, Stampin' Addicts or Paper Craft Planet, please put GCA35(NO SPACE IN BETWEEN GCA AND 35) in the keyword section. That way everyone can look at all of the creations at once! If you've been waiting to join in the fun, jump on in and have some fun!!

Happy Stamping!!!
