If you haven't been able to tell, I've been having a blast creating for Easter this year. One of the projects that came in my Artisan box of supplies from Stampin' Up! this month was the adorable set, Eggstra Spectacular. I realized that if I didn't share this with you soon, it would be too late, so without further ado....
What do you think? I LOVE it! Want to see some close ups?
First up is this sweet little card. I'm not one that usually spends a lot of time making and sending out Easter cards, but sometimes I want to send or hand out a little something, so an easy 3"x3" card like this is perfect! The base is Island Indigo and the Designer Series Paper is the Quatrefancy Specialty paper. It's embellished with a sweet little Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain bow and Pumpkin Pie Button. Oh - and do you see that sweet little fluffy tail? Just a fun little detail.
This cute little "basket" might be the perfect little gift to go with that card! I used a 4 oz disposable "coffee cup" and wrapped it with more Quatrefancy Paper. The little "ewe" is embossed with black embossing powder and colored in with the coordinating colors from the paper. I was able to punch him out with the Extra Large Oval punch, but I needed a little something behind that, so I punched out 3 Scallop Ovals and cut them apart to create a mat that would fit. To create the handle, I sandwiched some lovely Strawberry Slush Ruffle Trim between 2 pieces of Pool Party cardstock to create the handle.
As soon as I saw the stamp with the cute row of eggs, I knew I wanted to create these fun little egg holders. Do you love the eggs? I dyed them with Pool Party, Island Indigo and Daffodil Delight reinkers! FUN! To add a little bit of fun, I trimmed the edges of the Strawberry Slush, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie cardstock with the Small Scallop Rotary Trimmer Blade.
I admit, this one gave me a few fits, but I love how this centerpiece turned out! I used a little metal planter box I had on hand and created a little grassy garden of Old Olive cardstock cut with our awesome FRINGE scissors!!! In case you are wondering, I used like 15 strips....
I LOVE how adding the trim, ribbon and button really dressed up the trim
Let me show you some detail on those adorable little eggs -
I embossed the egg image 2 times on each color of cardstock. Then I cut them all apart to make COLORFUL eggs!!!
All together, I think it will really add to the Easter Decor around here - I know the boys will LOVE it!
