Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. This winter has been long and I am dreaming of Spring. Since Easter and Spring are around the corner I decided to create a Chick celebrating Spring.
Below you will find the steps to create your own Sassy Chick Spring Fever card.

Step 3 – On a scrap piece of cardstock ink Distress Oxide Mowed Lawn. Diecut Tree (grass die). Diecut Adventure Edges (Clouds die) on scrap piece of cardstock. Use the diecut as a stencil using an mini ink blending tool and add Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass. Adhere the grass on the bottom of the clouds and adhere the panel to the inside of the card with the clouds showing on the front of card.

Hello Elizabeth Craft Designs friends, Annette Green here today with the Susan’s Garden Club Team sharing a 6″ x 6″ easel card perfect for Springtime (or really any time of the year). Living here in Florida our flower growing options are somewhat limited due to the extreme heat, and I’m not known for my green thumb, so I especially love working with Susan’s Garden Notes dies. This way I can create ANY flower I like and it will last forever. I chose Lilacs today for my card and I loved how easy they were to put together. Let me take you through the process of making the card so you can see for yourself.
