I just love when Easter is in April as opposed to March. I love that the grass is greener, the spring bulbs are flowering, and the blossoms are...blossoming! I've gotten started on a few Easter projects that I wanted to share today. I'm getting my carrots all in a row...or is the saying "ducks"? LOL! Just kidding!
Once I had done my trouble shooting, I got to work. I used a window cut out for this one because who doesn't love Cadbury mini eggs? They are so utterly adorable, too! They are the perfect candy to use with a window.
For this trio, I used a traditional carrot combination; orange and green. I've started asking my daughter for her opinion on different options while I am crafting. I said,"Bunny, or no bunny?". She said no bunny, but now that I am looking at the photos, I'm really liking the bunny. However, the options are endless with this new set of dies.
I had a lot of fun gold embossing the sentiment which is from the "So Sweet" stamp set that is the perfect companion for these adorable treat boxes. It is not everyday that you find gingham paper on the bias. I scooped it up as soon as I saw it.
This is the sweet little bunny that is included in the "So Sweet" set. He was diecut using the coordinating die and I just added a hint of color on the ears, nose and eyes to give him some depth. The cheeks were stamped using an image from the set.
This is another tag and sentiment option that is included in the set. There are so many great ones, it was hard to choose. I really like that there are a few that a hostess could use as favors for an egg hunt or Easter get-together.
This is one of the designs that strays from the traditional carrot feel, but I just love how these turned out. I found the "He is risen" pattern paper at Hobby Lobby. It is beautiful. This tag was heat embossed using gold powder as I have shown on some others. I loved the addition of the rolled paper rose and leaf. It mimics the feel of the paper, but gives it added dimension.
