Art with Heart Team Blog Hop - Easter Mini Egg Carton


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!
Saleabration is a great time to join or place a $90 order to get extra free items – ask me how!
Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. Now let’s get started!

I have created some Easter Gifts with the Mini Egg Cartons and the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Hey, Chick.  I stamped the cute chicks in Chocolate Chip and then I used a selection of Stampin' Markers to colour in the images and then I used the  Square Stitched Shape Framelits Dies to cut them out and layered them onto cardstock and the recently release Sale-A-Bration Glimmer Paper.

I coloured the first Mini Egg Carton with 20 drops of Pool Party reinker mixed with Isocol rubbing alcohol (which make it quicker to dry than water) into a spritzer and covered it the colour and let it dry.  Finally, I made a belly band in Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper and Real Red Ribbon and attached the stamped image.

For the second Mini Egg Carton I left it in the natural colour and tided a piece of Peekaboo Peach Ribbon around to secure the Easter Eggs with a bow on the side and then attached the stamped image.

Stamp Set:  Hey, Chick, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Cardstock:  Cajun Craze, Whisper White, Tasty Treats Speciality Designer Series Paper
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Crajun Craze, Calyso Coral and lots of Stampin' Markers

CASE-ing the Catty Pretty Pocket Card Kit - #CTC119



Hello, and welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty #CTC119 and we are featuring the Sale-A-Bration promotion again this week (pages 16 to 19).

You maybe starting here so welcome or you may have come from Rebecca Scurr.

This week I have decided to use the Pretty Pocket Card Kit which is amazing on it's own but I was inspired by the Stampin' Up! Creative Designers to step it up.  Below is the kit and what it includes to make 8 cards with envelopes.

Stampin' Up! Pretty Pocket Card Kit, Swirly Bird, Sale-A-Bration created by Kathryn MangelsdorfI have taken the Swirly Bird stamp set and used different size swells and then fussy cut them out and then layered them onto a quarter of a doilie with lots of dimensions to create many layers and depth.

For the leaves I used the Pear Pizzazz cardstock and Old Olive ink with the striped "boat sail" stamp to create a textured look.

Stamp Set:  Swirly Bird, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink:  So Saffron, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
Cardstock:  So Saffron, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz, Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper
Accessories:  Pretty Pocket Card Kit, Delicate White Doilies, Triple Banner Punch



On the back of the envelope I used the flower and leaves sticker 
that would normally have been used in the insert.

For the insert I topped it with a piece of Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Colour INKspiration Easter Gifts - #CI05



I have been busy the last few weeks with appointments for my dad, but I love this pastel palette this week of Blushing Bride, Soft Sky and Sahara Sand and could not miss out on Colour INKspiration #CI05 with an Easter Gift.

This colour combination was all about the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper for me and I have used it to make a banner around the cute Clear Tiny Treat Boxes.  I cut a 1 1/2" wide strip of DSP and scored it to sit on the top of the box and used the Triple Banner Punch on each of the ends.  To secure the DSP I tided a beautiful bow with the Sale-A-Brations White and Silver Woven Ribbon around the box.

I finally made the tag from a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and I stamped the Easter wishes in Soft Sky from Suite Sentiments and popped the cute egg from the Sale-A-Bration's Hey, Chick stamp set in the corner in Blushing Bride and to give depth to the tag I added another tag in Sahara Sand underneath and then used my Bone Folder to curl the edges down.

I have purchased a couple packets of the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes and plan decorating them with DSP and ribbon and filling them with Easter Eggs for my colleagues at work. I just need time to create the other 30!  These make very stylish but inexpensive gifts as the bitty boxes are only $13.25 for 16.

Stamp Set:  Suite Sentiments, Hey Chick
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, Falling in Love Designer Series Paper
Ink:  Soft Sky, Blushing Bride
Accessories: White and Silver Accents 3/8" Woven Ribbon, Clear Tiny Treat Boxes, Triple Banner Punch
