Today I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some Easter projects, seeing as Easter is only about 3 weeks away!
Sale-a-bration continues, but must end on 31st March, so to earn your free item, just place a minimum $90 order – ask me how!
Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. You have come to me from our team leader, Claire Daly!
Now let’s get started!
For my projects, I have used the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Hey Chick!
I’ve made these cute little baskets to place my Easter eggs in for my girls to give to their friends at school. I have made two sizes, the first is from a 6″ x 6″ sheet of card stock and the smaller one begins with a 4″ x 4″ sheet of card stock.
For the larger 6″ x 6″ box, I scored the card stock on all 4 sides at 1.5″.
This holds 4 medium hollow eggs.
The smaller 4″ x 4″ box, I scored all 4 sides at 1″.
This holds 5 tiny solid eggs!
Here is another little Easter Treat Basket using the Window Box thinlits dies. I adore how versatile these thinlits are for so many projects, from gift boxes to these cute little baskets which hold three hollow eggs!
To create this one, you cut two of the box shapes and join them together, but then you only need half of the hexagon shape, so cut these in half. I also removed the tabs from either end (top and bottom of pic). Then cut a strip for the handle. Super easy to create! The sentiment is from the Saleabration, Any Occasion stamp set.
This next one is using the same idea but I die cut the stripes into the side and used those strips to create a basket weave effect.
The card uses the Circle of Spring stamp set and the coordinating Wonderful Wreath framelits dies from the Annual catalogue. To create the background,I inked up one side of the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, placed the Sahara Sand cardstock inside, closed it and rubbed over the top to create the pattern. I also sponged the edges and die cut a circle behind the wreath so the sentiment would shine through!
The Stampin’ Write Markers (Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo & Peekaboo Peach) were used to colour the wreath for a bold and bright look!
Thanks for visiting today.
