I love this set!  Having joined The Art Journaler, a community that works with Glue Booking, Card Club  and of course Art Journaling as a transformative tool and calendar tool, I saw Stitchy's Euchre Deck and fell in love. It falls right in line with what we do over there with Playing Cards.

I hope you like my vision for Stitchy's great art!

First I printed Stitchy's images on different colors of transparent paper.

Then I mod podged small printed images onto easter eggs and bought a metal tray from the dollar store.

I took regular clothes hanging pins and colored them with bingo dabbers, clipped them onto the metal tray but put some 3:1 glue right at the base of the clip on the tray.  And of course, embellies on the clip

I also bought these cute little wire chicks at the dollar store that are pliable and made of wire and stuck them on the eggs with sookwang tape

Here is the variety of Stitchy's EUCHRE DECK bunny's and the different sizes I made them on the transparent paper

These little cuties were all from the dollar store and nicely separated into eggs, ducks and bunny's but came in one stapled together pack.  Of course, I had to mix them all up!

And I used a Paper gift bag as my backing paper, cut open, and some of that Raffeta (is that what it is called?) to put around the tray.  To put it in the coffee table, I would cut the bag in a circle, put cardboard underneath and make the circle as wide as I could around the tray. And put it away for next Easter.

I hope you like my chicks!


For Project 2 I had an idea to make a Playboy Bunny House!

I used the Pink Raffeta (?) in the hole of my house (which was SOOOO fun to make) with 1 chick "coming on haha" to another chick and the 3rd chick very forelorned! hahaha (like you would have figured that out right? lol

I thought the Hugh Hefner Easter Bunny Playboy Mansion needed a Bouncer at the gate - thus a chick and a bird as Gate Keepers!

My Bird looks as though he is "I see nothing, I know nothing!" lol

I then attached some wonderful ribbon I bought at the dollar store to my house and to a flower that holds Stitchy's EUCHRE DECK.

I used Clear Gesso on the cards and then water paint - not my fav. combo - but a nice experiment.
I then used Sparkle Varnish from my Folk Art.
This I like.

I attached 3 pieces of thin ribbon to my flower and then stapled the cards (mini ATC deck I got at the dollar store) to the ribbon just slightly overlapping, thinking it would be wayyyyy to long otherwise.  I am not sure I would do this again as it hides to much of the card and Easter Playboy Bunny.

And there you have it!

Happy Easter

  1. OMGoodness Samara - these projects are STUNNING. !! Never seen that set at Stitchy's and it's brilliant. You made some awesome thing but I LUV that playboy mansion birdhouse :-D Marvelous :-) Those little chicklets are sooooo darn cute. I remember making something for my Mum at school - a paper nest with one of those stuck in it and 3 tiny sugar eggs. After she died and I was clearing out her cabinet, I found it !!!! A bit squashed and minus the eggs but she kept it all those years !!!!!!
