MFT February Previews, Day 1-Happy Easter!

Hi everyone!  It’s time to begin sharing My Favorite Things‘ February previews! Today we are showcasing Lisa Johnson’s adorable new sets, Embellished Eggs and Spring Backgrounds.

Here I used Embellished Eggs stamp set along with Lisa’s coordinating Easter Elements Die-namics.  How about that little bird?  Eek!  SO darn cute!

I hung the eggs from Branch with Leaves die-cut from Kraft cardstock.  To add dimension, I placed thin foam strips beneath the branch ends.  The right side of the branch, cut even with the card edge, is glued down flat to the paper.  I stamped the eggs in new Sour Apple and Pink Lemonade inks.  The “happy Easter” was stamped in Kraft ink and the little bird, die-cut from Pink Lemonade cardstock has a wing popped up on a small piece of foam tape.

On the inside, I stamped a few small eggs using Pink Lemonade and Sour Apple inks along with a little Pink Lemonade bird (with Kraft feet).

Because I couldn’t get enough of those ADORABLE birds, I created a second card featuring a little quartet.  :)

The birds were die-cut from Banana Split, Sour Apple and Pink Lemonade cardstock with the last bird coming from a random piece of coordinating paper I had in a “miscellaneous” file.  Again, I popped up the little wings using foam tape. (I just ♥ them.)

On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the set (in Kraft ink) and two little birdies in Pink Lemonade and Sour Apple.
