It’s been an exciting weekend for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world. We have just had Onstage 2017 which is a fun time for demonstrators to get together, all at the same time throughout the world, and we have just seen the next Annual Catalogue! Yes, I have a copy in my hot little hands!! But I’m not sharing it with you just yet. You’ll have to wait until 1 June.
I also got to catch up with some of the CTC Crew in Sydney which was great! Nothing like meeting up in person. Here’s Liz Gross and I. Bronwyn Eastley and I were shopping and ran into Liz!!
So back with the program!! We are casing Easter projects this week.
I was flipping through the Annual Catalogue (gee, I should do that more often) and I came across this cute acorn thank card on page 36.
I decided to case the card at the top. I used the same Sparkle embossing folder with a whisper white cardstock base. Instead of using burlap ribbon, I decided to use a piece of Wild Wasabi cardstock and cut it with the fringe scissors to make some grass. I just love the Basket Bunch stamp set and the matching Basket Builder framelits. The bunnies are just so cute!!
I stamped the bunny, eggs, birds and flowers in memento ink and cut them out with the framelits. I coloured them using the blender pens and So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Marina Mist, Pool Party and Calyspo Coral ink.
To create the sentiment, I used a combination of stamp sets. Happy is from Endless Birthday Wishes and Easter is from Crazy about You stamp set.
I’m hoping my nieces’ like the card as their Easter present will be inside!! Not chocolate but tickets to a concert!! Best.Auntie.Ever
Enjoy our hop this weekend!! And Happy Easter!!
Next up is the gorgeous Kelly Kent!!

Isn’t the year just flying past? Who can believe that Easter is nearly upon us!!
At CTC this week, we are casing the Easter section of the Occasions catalogue which is found on pages 34 and 35 of the AU/NZ catalogue.
I decided to case the Petite Café gift bag on the top corner of page 34.
It’s cute, isn’t it? But I don’t have the For Peeps’ Sake stamp set. So I decided to make my tag using the Happy Easter Bunny stamp and just inking the bunny using the chocolate chip marker. I then coloured a few spots with blushing bride and pear pizzazz markers.
I also didn’t have the circle decorative mask so I carefully used my sponge dauber to make the dots. Remember, when you use white ink, to leave it to dry before you touch it. (Ask me how I know!!) I cut out 2 of the tag from the chalk talk framelits and cut one up and put the Sweet Dreams Designer Washi tape along the edge to make the tag stand out.
I used the Indescribable Gift stamp set for the Happy Easter sentiment.
