Cottage Cutz Spring Chick-A-Dee

 Hello everyone.  Here's a little project that I did for The Scrapping Cottage using the Spring Chick-A-Dee die cut that you can find here.  Isn't this a cute gift giving combination For Easter!

 I just love working with the Cottage Cutz Dies.  It's so relaxing and I don't have to worry about having the right Copic markers to blend and shade on my images.  I use Brazzill card stock in various colors.  To accentuate the edges of these dies I used a stencil brush and dry brushed black ink on the edges of all the lines.

 This little purse was an adaptation from the Technique Challenge from last Monday found here at Splitcoast Stampers.  It's called a Box-In-A Bag.  I made mine 1 inch shorter and cut out my handles with the spellbinders oval dies.  I also adhere my bag inside the box and not outside.
Here is the little card that I made to go with the gift tote.  This card is 5" x 5".  I used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page called Cherry Blossom.  I just love this sweet little Chick!
Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope I have inspired you to create some cute Easter Gifts.  This was fun and so easy.  Enjoy!  See you soon.

Your card and box are so cheery and bright. They make me think Spring is on it's way (even though it is snowing at the moment)! NancyD

Your tote is adorable, Carol. Just fill it will chocolates and other goodies and get it in the mail to me. Oh, my mind is slipping. I'm on a diet. Yuck! Your little chick die cut is a real cutie, too.

These are the epitome of Easter: bright saturated color, a cute chickie, lots of flowers.

I showed my mom the cards and box you sent to me (I have quite the Bearzi collection of my own, here!) and all she could say was "Oh, my gosh!" for each one. They left her speechless, which is what happens to me too when I look at your things!!
