Happy Easter!

Hi Stampers! 

Today I have a special Easter Sunday post for you!  I wanted to share with you the gifts I made to give my family for Easter.  Normally we buy each other candy, but I thought a nice home baked treat would be even better.  (I'm still giving them candy, too!)  I love this banana bread recipe from the Cookies and Cups blog.  I love it so much that I have been collecting bananas in my freezer for weeks to have enough to make 6 batches of batter.  (Hint - if you want to find the mini PB cups at the best price get a giant box of them from Costco.)  Of course, I also have to dress the loaves up with some stamping!

I made this adorable little tag with just a few supplies, including the Everybunny stamp set.  It was quick and easy!  I used my blender pens and ink pads to water color the image.  Remember when you are watercoloring an image, be sure to use StazOn ink to stamp the image outlines.  I added a sentiment to the bottom and cut it out with the oval framelits.  Then I matted the image with the next size up oval which I cut out of Primrose Petals Core'dinations card stock and embossed with the Fancy Fans embossing folder. 

Here are the breads all wrapped up and ready to go!

I used the 1-1/4" Two-Tone Ribbon in Pink Pirouette/Rose Red to wrap around the loaf and tied it in a bow.

Then I also made some quick little treat bags.  Each bag was tied with Old Olive 3/8" Striped Organdy Ribbon.  Then, I took the small size bottle cap a and ran it through the Big Shot.  I used the 1/2" circle punch to punch out discs of Summer Smooches DSP.  I glued the DSP in the bottle cap and filled in the cap with Crystal Effects.  After adding the Crystal effects, I sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds for extra sparkle.  When the cap was dry, I applied it to the ribbon with a dimensional.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Easter treats.  Have a wonderful Easter!!!!

Easter Card!

Hi Stampers!

The week has finally come to an end.  I am so happy the weekend is here.  I have two family dinners to go to and a lot of baking ahead of me.  Today I have my Easter card to share with you.  I have been seeing a lot of these punch art bunnies on the web lately.  I decided to make mine a chocolate bunny, and everyone knows that the best part of a chocolate bunny is the ear!  Yum!

You only need three punches to make this bunny.  It's so easy!  Don't have the SU Flower trim?  1. Well, what are you waiting for? 2. You can use a button, a brad, a pearl, a punched flower, etc, etc.  Lots of alternative options!  (But I still think you would LOVE the flower trim!)

Here is the card interior.  I used the Designer Typeset Photopolymer stamp set to create a custom sentiment.  Love it!  The possibilities are endless!!!!

Stampin' Supplies:
Embellishments: 5/8" Flower Trim, Basic Pearls

Stay tuned for a special post on Easter for another quick and easy gift project!
