simon says stamp - faberge egg

No photo description available.

Did someone say Faberge Egg? As in, gold and jewels and decadence. Well son of a gun, one of the products in the new Lucky to Know You release at Simon Says Stamp is actually a Faberge Egg die. And lucky me, it came to live at my house. Thanks, Simon.

I could not not go the gold and jewel route. But talk about easy. I'm sure you too have a gazillion backgrounds in your stash that you have created with paints or inks or alcohol inks. Maybe you even have PP that is marbled or galaxy-ish. If so, this is under-five-minute card. Ready?

I die cut the intricate egg from gold CS, the solid egg from a background I recently created trying out spin art with my new salad spinner! (Watch for a tutorial on the 12th ;) Glued them together and adhered them to a shimmery, linen cardbase and voila!

For my second card, I die cut the solid egg from craft foam and used it as a stamp. Randomly stamped the cardbase with Squeezed Lemonade, Worn Lipstick and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxides and then added a vellum solid egg with a stacked white intricate egg and voila!

I have one more card for you, this was more of a wing-it-as-you-go-along card. I wanted to make a tulle shaker. Hmm. This die seemed perfect for it. Hmm. For some reason I decided to make a little (4" x 4 3/4") double fold card, so I winged it and this happened.

I trimmed a 4 3/4"piece of textured white CS from a 12x12 sheet. Scored it at 4" and 8". I created the tulle shaker, adhered it with score tape and backed the front with yellow CS. Backed the orange (leaving in some pieces of the die cut to make it more readable through the tulle) intricate egg with yellow polka dot PP and if you open that flap you have the entire middle panel to write your message.

Check out all the makes with the products from the release in the gallery here. And be sure to check out the blog hops this weekend to see all the new products in action.
