Stampin' Addicts Occasions Mini Blog Hop!

It's time for another fun Blog Hop with the Stampin' Addicts! We are showcasing products from the Occasions Mini Catalog... (Which goes live TODAY!!) You are going to LOVE everything in this Catty! 

If you are Hoping along in order you've come from Adriana's Blog, didn't you love what she created with So very Grateful? I'm showing you the Stamp Set Eggstra Spectacular, it's perfect for all your Easter cards... My first project is a standard size card. I used the Eggstra Spectacular, the Notable Alphabet set (Idea Book & Catalog) and the Fresh Prints DSP Stack from the Occasions Catty. 

My card base is Real Red with a layer of the Fresh Prints DSP and then a layer of Crumb Cake that I did my stamping on. I stamped the EGGstra image in Black and then I stamped the You're above in Black as well. I colored the eggs in with the Costal Cabana, Real Red & White Chalk Marker. I stamped the bunny image onto a scrap piece of white and cut it out and added it with some Dimensioanls. I added some dazzling details to create a cute Bunny Tail! (click on Photos to see larger view). I also added some dots around the outside edge of the Crumb Cake piece with the Chalk Marker. Adorable!!!!

This little 3x3 note card would be perfect for inside an Easter Basket or a note for someone Special. The card base is Whisper White cut at 6x3 and folded in half. I stamped the Bunny image in Black and then I colored it in with a blender pen and Crumb Cake ink. I also added Glitter to it's tail! Using some strips of the DSP from the Fresh Prints stack I created some banners for the upper corner and then I added some Gold Baker's Twine. So cute!!!! 

I was going to stick this tag on the front of a card but then I thought it'd be perfect to hang on an Easter Basket or you could also add it to a Scrapbook Page! It was a bit tricky photographing this one. You can click on it to see it larger. I created the White Tag base and then I added some more Fresh Prints DSP from the Stack cut into Banners (Who doesn't love Banners?) Then using the Paper Piercing Pack I pierced around the Modern Label punch. 

I stamped the little Sheep onto some Crumb Cake that was punched with the Modern Label punch in Black ink and then I colored him in with a Blender pen and coordinating Inks. For the white areas I used the White Chalk Marker. I also added some Dazzling details to the little basket. Then I adhered it with some Dimensionals. I then added some Gold Baker's Twine around the Tag. 

Along the side I added a few Gold Sequins with some Tombow Mono adhesive and then I punched a hole for the Costal Cabana Ribbon & Gold Baker's Twine. I wish I could of found my kids Easter Baskets this would look so cute on one of them!
