Happy Easter!


I’m late today …… sorry!  It’s proving to be a very busy week.  What with visitors over the weekend, and then it was my birthday yesterday, and I’ve got a ‘to do’ list as long as my arm – phew! I need a break.   I had a little bit of time off from the old craft room yesterday, and went out for a lovely birthday meal, thanks to hubby.   I also found out that it was fellow Indigo Blu Belle, Clare Horner’s birthday too ……. Happy Birthday Clare, hope you had a great day.

Back to normal today though (whatever that is!) I’ve been busy using the brand new Easter Egg stamp, making samples for the upcoming craft show at the NEC in Birmingham.  I think it’s the 21st – 24th March, but don’t hold me to that!

The Easter Egg is a nice big stamp, lots of detail and looks fab however you use it.  I’ve used it here just with Onyx Black Versafine ink, onto some coloured cardstock then carefully cut around it.  I stamped the words again onto white card and layered this over the top. You could actually put anything here, personalise the egg maybe with someone’s name.

I cut a tag shape, big enough for my egg to fit onto, from the Indigo Blu Perfect Stamping Card, and used the Easter Egg stamp again, to add a bit of interest to my background.

I then mat onto some pink cardstock, then finally onto a card blank which I then cut to shape around my tag.

I punched a hole in the top and threaded some vintage seam binding through and added a matching bow to the bottom.

A pretty vintage wooden button adds the finishing touch.

The egg looks fabulous stamped with the Flitter Glu and then the Mega Flakes over the top.  Here I’ve just kept things very simple ……..

…….. stamped the egg using the Glu and I’ve used the Manchester Tart flake, just look at all that detail.  It really doesn’t need anything else.  I just added a lovely yellow bow across the middle and mat onto some co-ordinating yellow cardstock.  Perfect for Easter.

This card would sit beautifully alongside the box that I made for the last TV show, using the same stamp.

Again, I used the Flitter Glu and flakes – this time it was Autumn Blaze (my favourite).

It was stamped 4 times onto Indigo Blu Coal Black cardstock then used to decorate the sides of a gift box – perfect for a small easter egg, or as I did, fill it with mini eggs!  Nom! Nom!

And on that note, I think maybe it’s time I had a chocolate break.

Thanks for popping by today.  Have a lovely week whatever you’re up to.

Cheerio for now
