Nature Walk Easter Basket

I made this basket last week for Easter using the gorgeous eggs image from the Nature Walk stamp set. This set is only available for one more day in the Occasions Mini Catalogue. It's not a set that I would define as my usual style, but I love the mix of images in it and have found it quite easy to use. I coloured the eggs with my Stampin' Write markers and glazed them with a layer of Crystal Effects. The basket itself is simply four scallop envelope die cuts adhered together.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Slice of Life Teabag Holder

Happy Easter! I hope you are enjoying Easter weekend. It is a beautiful spring day here, and I can't wait to get outside to enjoy it.

I have a quick and cute teabag holder to share with you today. I cased it from Caroline Skinner, who has a great tutorial for it. As you can see I made two versions, one that closes like a card, and a more simple one. Both are equally adorable. The stamp sets I used, A Slice of Life and You're a Gem, are available in the Occasions Mini Catalog only until the end of April. I used the lovely seam binding ribbon in Very Vanilla and gathered the ends to create some ruffles.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Slice of Life Sympathy Card

I've had this Hostess Set, A Slice of Life, for a while now, but only just gotten around to playing with it. It is a great set with simple images for colouring and paper piecing. This card measures 4-1/4 by 4-1/4. I coloured the flowers with my Baja Breeze marker and added a dot of Marina Mist in the centre of each flower. I stamped the vase on a scrap of designer paper, cut it out, and adhered it. The Pear Pizazz Seam Binding is so soft and easy to work with. A Slice of Life is available as a Hostess Level 1 set in the Occasions Mini Catalogue only until April 30.

Petal Cone Cupcake Card

I've been having lots of fun with the Petal Cone Die. When I saw the idea for this cupcake card on Corinne Somerville's blog, I knew I had to give it a try. Anyone who knows me, knows I love "cute" and this little cupcake card fit the bill. It is so simple to make with the Petal Cone die, and the Pompom Trim and Glimmer Paper cherry add just the right touches.
