Adorable Easter Chick + Floral Stamped Background


Cute and sweet and colorful, too!  Love this little Easter Chick.  He's all ready for you to download, if you would like to create a little Easter something with this cutie!

We had an early Easter in Savannah.  Dennis went with me (Lauren gave her daddy tickets to the Savannah Home Tour for his birthday).  I stayed with Louisa while they visited all the houses.  Below are a couple of pics from Louisa's first Easter Egg Hunt...

Do you like to create stamped backgrounds?  If you haven't tried it yet, I've got a few tips.



To make a stamped background easier, you can start with colors in your image.

If you are using large and small stamps, start with the large ones.

Use odd numbers.  For example, on this card there are 5 pink flowers, 5 green leaf branches and 3 yellow flowers.

You can turn the stamped image all different directions and stamp some off the edge.



Fill in with smaller stamps.  

Use the theme of your card.  I added Easter egg stamps to this one.

Use dots!  I really like the dots on Mama Elephants Water Blooms stamp set.

Finally, these "rules" are all made to be broken!  Go with what you like and just have fun!





Download Easter Chick HERE.

Dropbox seems to work differently for different people.  Either right click and save when image appears or click the download button in the top right corner.  If neither method works, email me and I'll send the files to you. 





I took some eggs and our old easter basket (poor Dennis had to lug it through the airports) that was used by my uncle, me, Lauren and now, Louisa.  After breakfast, we stopped at one of the squares in Savannah.  Her Daddy put out the eggs.  She loved carrying the basket.



Here she is, figuring out that there are goodies inside.  Louisa took all the eggs out and lined them up on the ground.  This is why I use all my money and fly to Savannah every three weeks!

Happy Easter!

  7. Such a sweet & colorful little Easter chick and like how you've created your own background using the pretty stamp set. Looks quite versatile with those images too. Thanks for sharing some tips about how to create the background too. Your little one is adorable, and is such a good age to enjoy these magical holidays. Hope you had some good weather in Savannah. We are a few hours north of there..and it's been a little chilly. Happy Easter, TFS

  12. The places I saw here are really wonderful, celebrating a special event like this with the beauty of nature is really cool. When you are in these New York venues, there's nothing you can do than to be happy. I really liked it here.
