Just add eggs and some gentle colouring!
This week we were meant to have our Easter Treats class. My lovely group were meeting on Tuesday night to chat, catch up and craft. Unfortunately we can no longer meet up but I hope they will still all enjoy making their Easter treats at their own homes.
It is a simple project with some gentle colouring and a bit of fussy cutting (which is like marmite in my group!)
This stamp set is so cute – perfect for Easter and also new babies. I really enjoyed colouring them with my Stampin’ Blends. I had bought some wrapped Easter Eggs in TK Maxx and chose my flower colours to co-ordinate with them.
Here is a recipe for the tag:
- Die cut the largest rectangle scalloped die from the Stitched So Sweetly Die on Whisper White.
- Die cut in Granny Apple Green cardstock a length of grass using the Special Days die
- Stamp in Memento black ink the Happy Easter sentiment from Welcome Easter onto at scrap of Whisper White and die cut with the Rectangular Stitched die.
- Stamp your animals on scraps of Whisper White and colour with your Stampin’ Blends then fussy cut them out
- Lamb Smokey Slate Light and Dark, Petal Pink Dark, and Pool Party Dark
- Chick Daffodil Delight Light and Dark, Pumpkin Pie Dark
- Bunny Smokey Slate Light and Dark, Petal Pink Light (for the cheeks and ears)
- Stamp some flowers to coordinate with your eggs and animals. I used the free Sale-a-bration set Thoughtful Blooms and the matching punch. The inks which worked for me are Blueberry Bushell, stamped off first (ink up the stamp, stamp on your grid pad then stamp on your Whisper White scrap), it gives a softer colour. Melon Mambo again stamped off first and Daffodil Delight.
- Assemble your tag. Start with the length of grass, cut so it fits inside the stitching on the rectangle. Add the flowers, sentiment and animal with dimensionals. Remember to add pearls to the middle of your flowers.
- Fill your bags with eggs – 15 worked for me.
- Make two holes in the middle, near the top of your tag. Feed your ribbon around the bag and through the holes and fasten with a bow.
Here are the materials you need for this project.
