Spring is here and shortly, Easter!! This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is Easter gifts.
Funny though, I always relate Easter as the “OK” to start wearing white shoes. Except! if you live in Hawaii — it’s always OK to wear white shoes.
Finally!!! Hooray!!!! I get to use the only Easter stamp set I own that has not been discontinued/retired. I love this cute set. This week I created a faux Easter Basket using a stampable mug/cup and put all the goodies in the cup. That way, it’s a functional present. The children will each receive an Easter mug this year, which will have more goodies than shown on the picture.
My favorite candy was always a Russell Stover’s marshmallow chocolate covered egg. I rarely found it where I lived in California. But now that I’m a Texas resident — well there’s resourceful to satisfy my sugar taste buds. Since it’s easy for me to gain the extra pounds (even by just looking at it), I’ve stamped a candy wrapper for my delectable delight and will wait patiently until Easter Sunday to enjoy it. In fact, I purchased several. And all have been wrapped in a stamped design and will be used as a favor to place at each table setting for our Easter dinner.
The card itself was a very quick and easy one to create. The Sizzix Texturized Impressions Folders really are beautiful and are so easy to use. I used the “Elegant Bouquet” folder. Just add pearls to the flowers, Seam Binding ribbon (so pretty and soft), and do some sponging using the daubers (so you don’t have to worry about inky pinkies) and “Voila!” — you have an Easter Card.
So here are my projects to share with you — quick and easy little gifts create and to give this season.
