Easter Favors to dress up your party

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an Easter theme challenge. Create any Easter project – cards, 3D projects, party favors, baskets, gift sets…you get the idea. There are so many projects you can create to dress up this holiday.

For this challenge I created a small bunny basket perfect for Easter candy. I printed the chocolate bunny, Spring Vintage DSP and sentiment from My Digital Studio. I dressed him up with ivory grosgrain ribbon and adhered him to the front of the box. I punched the sentiment with the oval punch and layered it over a Regal Rose Scallop oval. I modified this box template by cutting off the back and made a handle from Regal Rose CS with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch.

My other project is the carrot box made with Stampin’ Up’s Petal Cone die.  Love this die.  I textured the Pumpkin Pie CS with Texture Plates Kit #4.  The carrot top was created by cutting two Old Olive banners in half length-wise and curling them around a paper piercing tool.  I adhered them with mini glue dots to the inside of the flaps so the flaps could still be folded under each other to close the box.  The bunny was stamped and clear embossed then punched with 1-3/8 circle punch then layers on Peach Parfait DSP from the Hostess level 1 paper pack.  For the larger scallop I used Old Olive Polka dot DSP from Jolly Holiday.

I’m in the PINK!

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a fun color splash challenge with PINK!  Create any project with all the shades of pink.

Pinkalicious challenge 62-001

Since pink is such a feminine color I decided to create a teapot shaped card and candle for mother’s day.  The template for the teapot can be found here.   I enjoyed creating this project with the help of My Digital Studio.  I printed the DSP from the Spring Vintage DSP download.  To embellish the teapot I used the Blossom Petal punch and coordinating stamp set.  The butterflies were die cut from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits.  Take the challenge and show us your pink-a-licious projects.

Spring Vintage Hearts

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a hearts theme challenge.  Hearts are a wonderful shape because they’re not just for Valentine’s day.  They fit right it for birthdays, anniversaries,  thinking of you, weddings and thank you projects.  I knew I wanted to create a project with spring colors and with a shabby chic look.  I’ve recently downloaded the Spring Vintage DSP for My Digital Studio and I thought perfect! Next I selected the perfect coordinating stamp sets, Baby Blossoms and With all my Heart.  The box shape I selected is the Petal Cone.  The shape is perfect for my vintage shabby chic look I had in mind.  The Petal Cone die, Spring Vintage DSP and Baby Blossoms stamp set can be found in the new Occasion Mini.

To add to my spring shabby chic look I embellished with pearls, crochet trim and of course hearts.  The base of the card is Crumb Cake CS, the next layer is Rose Red CS.  The DSP is the Spring Vintage download printed on matte photo paper.  I created the sentiment layer on my card by stamping the frame from the Baby Blossoms stamp set then used paper snips to cut the frame.  I used the SU wide oval punch and then used a tag from the Matchbox die and stamped ‘friend’ from With all my Heart stamp set.  I also used the Eyelet border punch under the crochet ribbon and embellished with pearls.  I created the heart trim at the bottom of the card using the Small heart punch.  I aligned the side of the punch with the previous heart and aligned the bottom of the heart with the line I drew in pencil.  Draw it light so it can be erased once you finish.

The Petal Cone box is Very Vanilla CS and I then printed Spring Vintage DSP on matte paper then put the paper through my Big Shot with Petal Cone die so I could then cut two sides of the triangle.  I cut these out then adhered them to the sides of the Petal Cone.  The Scallop flower is made with the 2-3/8″ scallop circle punch and clear rhinestone brad.

This is my quick and fast method for making the scallop flower.  Punch 6 scallop circles, stack them all together, then pierce the center and use a brad to fasten.  Crunch and fold each layer.  Voilá you have a flower.  There are other methods where you fold each layer and spritz with water before fastening all the layers but I don’t have much patience and my quick method works for me.

I enjoyed making this gift set and I hope it inspires you to take the challenge and create your heart project.
