Put a Little Spring in Your Step with Authentique Paper & Petaloo!

Authentique Paper and Petaloo are teaming up over the next week to bring you some Easter "Treasures" using Authentique Paper and Petaloo products!

After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Petaloo blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

Hilary Kanwischer

Hey everyone, I'm super excited to work with Petaloo featuring the "Treasure" collection by Authentique Paper.  For my project today, I created a fun chickadee card using the Textured Elements and the Botanica Collection from Petaloo, and for the card, I used some SVG Cuts which are a fun way of electronically die cutting your pattern paper and then piecing it all together.  I hope you enjoy!

These blooms add such a fun textured element to any project, and I just adore the chunky glitter that adorns the royal blue blooms from the Botanica Collection.  They are beautiful!  The burlap texture on the pistachio blooms adds a fun natural touch to your projects and I think these were the perfect pieces to compliment my card.

How sweet is this "Treasure" collection?  Living in South Florida, we didn't have much of a Winter, but I bet this collection is a sweet welcome to all the northerners that had to endure a long harsh snowy season.  This is the perfect collection for Easter and the ideas are endless.

I added some Fancy Trims, also by Petaloo as a bow around the chick's little neck, and a fun sentiment die strip along the bottom of the card. 

If you have an Eclips, Cameo, or Cricut, which are so popular these days, then you will find creating a card like this is so simple and fun.  I simply downloaded the "Hippity Hoppity" collection from SVG Cuts and created the "Chick" card from the collection. 

I also created a custom envelope from pattern paper from the "Treasure" collection, so your card will arrive in style and completely match the inside . 

I hope you've enjoyed my project today, and I hope I've inspired you to create your own.

Petaloo blooms...who doesn't love them? When paired with Authentique products you simply can't create fast enough! I kid you not, I created this 'hello spring' wreath in an hour. 

I started with a small, plain twig wreath, I then added several Easter egg stems to coordinate with my spring theme. Next, I added lots of Petaloo blooms - as you can see I'm a huge fan of those beautiful burlap blooms.

 I finished my wreath with several Treasure Collection components, including the 'hello spring' sentiment. Now this pretty wreath is gracing my front door!
