I’m so excited that spring is almost here! In anticipation I created this adorable pillow box and card for Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge. A perfect treat to put in an Easter basket or to give just as is. The challenge this week is a color challenge. Create any paper crafting project with the colors of Real Red, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight.
I used the new Easter stamp set, Everybunny, featured in the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog. This set has so many cute stamps perfect for Easter. I made the box using the Pillow Box die. I stamped the hot air balloon image on Crumb Cake with Soft Suede and Versamark then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used a blender pen to add color to the bunny and the balloon. I then cut out the image and for a finishing touch I used Dazzling Details on the balloon. I punched the flowers with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack then embellished with rhinestones. I stamped the sentiment on Daffodil Delight and tied hemp twine around the box. The 3″ x 3″ card was so easy to make. I embossed the Daffodil Delight layer with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. The chick image I stamped then clear embossed and punched with the 1-3/8″ circle. The flower layer is punched with the Fancy Flower punch.
I hope you’re inspired to join us over at Hand Stamped Sentiments. We’d love to see your creation.
