Easter Sunday Celebrations


Hello there!
Thanks for stopping by on this lovely Sunday morning.
I hope you are well and happy?
Thought I’d send an Easter card project to you;
a simple celebration Sunday.


I remember great amusement when doing this card together with Dean on telly; let’s see if I can embed the You-tube of that show....
Anyway, here’s what we used:









 

I cut and embossed an oval shape out of Theuvacard.
I heat-embossed the Easter banner and the Greeting with a heatgun




Stamped the 3 chicks onto Translucent Shrink Plastic, 
Cut them out, like so...



but let’s watch Dean the crafting Guru tackle 3 chicks, eh.
Or was it 4 chicks....
Managed to embed this from You Tube, and thanks JantheNan, 
the lady who put it there in the first place!

This is very funny! 
Dean is brilliant!








To make the flower, I bought a set of very reasonably priced punches at my friend Terri’s shop in Wisbech 
Terri Lucas, The Craft Den. Fab shop, even fabber woman!
If you live in that area, you should pop in, or sign up for one of her workshops. She is one talented lady. 
And our Clarity Design Team Kelly Ketteringham (Kelly on the Telly) works at the Craft Den, too, so you will meet her there.


So there we are.
Happy Easter to you and yours. 

All the stamps are in the Easter sale this weekend.
Sales ends Monday 21st April, 2014.

lots of love,
Barb

  12. As a sideline you could form the next great comedy duo on TV, " Dean & Babs" you wouldn't need a script writer, just ad lib as on here. Produced a great looking card Barbara despite the distraction! Love it. Happy Easter. Xxxxxxxxxxx

  14. Hi Barb,
    Hadn't seen this one of you and Dean in Episode 2 of shrink plastic. What a giggle! You two just bounce so well off each other and are a real tonic. Weather here in Germany is wunderschon and the church bells are ringing out. Love reading your blog and you always give us something to smile or laugh about. Thank you for taking the time.
    A happy Easter to all at Clarity Towers and fellow readers. Liz x

  19. Hi Barbara. Yesterdays card is as gorgeous as todays, I love the chicks and the eggs. Pretty flower too. Laughed all over again re-watching you and Dean shrink plastic no 2 : ) Forget about Pearl and Dean films at the cinema, it should be Gray and Dean films. How funny that would be, you bounce off of each other so well. I could watch you all day : ) Wishing you a Happy Easter. Take care.

    Lovely project, I wish my shrink plastic turned out as well, I just can't get to grips with it.xxx

  42. Trying to decide whether to attack the garden in the sunshine, or craft. I think your post has inspired me to get into the craft room - I still haven't used my new stamps that I ordered from you before my holiday, so it's about time....! Happy Easter - Susan x

  44. That was funny, not tried shrink plastic maybe one day. Lovely card very smart. Hope you and Dave have had a good day. I cooked dinner for my son and his girlfriend then spent couple of hours with some friends just catching up.
    Wish we had a good craft shop near us, got a Hobbycraft but does not have the personal touch. Enjoy rest of hol. Lynne xx

  46. Happy Easter Barbara, Dave and everyone at Clarity including the Design Team. I remember this demo on the television and don't think I have ever laughed so much, especially when Dean's shrink plastic appeared to curl right up. He did well to rescue it. Love the card and hope you have had a great Easter Sunday.

  47. Happy Easter Barbara...I remember this well as not only was it really funny, but I emailed the show with a question and my email was pulled out of the Cup of Chance, so I have Dean's shrink plastic chicks with the scissor mark!! xx

    ReplyDelete
  48. This is a lovely Easter card these stamps are great I love the little chicks and must get them sometime when funds allow, next Easter perhaps! Happy Easter to you Barbara.

  49. Lovely card, I love playing with shrink plastic. Great video, I must have missed that show, blooming hilarious :-D

    My top tip for shrink plastic is to use a pokey tool to stop it from blowing all over the place x

  53. I took your Bloopers and the two shrink plastic videos with me at the weekend on my Kindle fire, and they were such a great lift when I started to feel sorry for myself. It does not matter how many times I watch them, they always make me laugh. xx

  55. I love the gold theme to this card, just the perfect Easter colour. The shrink plastic video is a hoot and using it will always bring a smile to my lips, The finished chicks are just so sweet. x
