Easter Projects

Hi Stampers

Here are the projects that we will be making at my Stamp Clubs and Stamp Workshops the month of March.

The first one is this Easter Basket made using the Cricut Artiste Cartridge. It is the Strawberry box on page 73, and I cut it at 2 1/4" (fit to page). It will allow two baskets from each 12x12 sheet of cardstock. I did cut the handle larger at 2 1/2". The bow is also from the same cartridge, page 55, cut at 1 1/4" (real dial size). The small flower on the center of the bow is from page 32, cut at 1" (real dial size). The paper pack is the Lollydoodle paper.

This is one of the cards.  It is a standard size A2 card using the Lollydoodle paper pack, a sheet from the Timberline paper pack, and the Happy Easter B1423 stamp set.
This is the sentiment on the inside of the card.  It is from a retired stamp set D1259 Eastertime.
Here is the final card we will be making.  It is more of a classical Easter card.  I cut out the egg shapes using the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.  Page 57, it is , cut at 3 1/2" white cardstock and one at 3 3/4" from black cardstock.  Then I made a mask of a cross, and used sponges to add color to the white cardstock.  First Honey ink, then Sunset ink, then Cotton Candy ink.  Then using black ink I stamped the swirl images from C1463 Harvest Happiness stamp set.  The sentiment "Easter Wishes" is from the retired set 1415 Springtime.
It is hard to tell in the picture, but the egg shape is popped up using 3-D foam tape.  I left the inside blank on this one.
Thanks for looking - have a Happy Easter!
