Spring Fling...


Today the Papertrey Ink team is working with a few new stamp sets coming out on the 15th... Polkadot Parade #1 and Mini Blooms, along with a new Favor It Box #9 die. We were to find an image online that inspires us, so I found this one below and ended up using it quite literally. I loved the pastel letters and knew they'd work perfectly with the new Headline Alphabet stamps coming out this month too!
So here is my take on the inspiration piece for an Easter card! I used the new Headline Alphabet for the sentiment and inserted the little bunny stamp from Polkadot Parade #1.


I had to pop up the tail for dimension! What is a cute bunny without a fluffy tail?

My advice when creating this card is to start in the center with the alpha stamps. I stamped the "Happy" first and then the Easter, starting with the S and T in the center and working my way out on each end to make sure the word was going to be even.

I made two little favor bags with the Favor It Box 9 dies. You can create smaller ones and larger bags with the same set! Inside the larger one, I added a tag cut with the Mat Stack 6 dies and stamped and embossed with the Mini Blooms set and the same bunny from Polkadot Parade #1. Added one of PTI's new resin pieces as the bunny tail.
Nichole Heady will have a video on how to make these cute baskets with the dies! I decided to add a fun Crate Paper brad at the top which kind of brings all of these colors that I used all together.

Now there is also a scavenger hunt today and a contest, which Nichole will explain on her blog this morning! Find all of the bunnies in the design team posts to win!

Cute projects. Loved your card and your baskets look great. Was wondering about the other brads, the yellow ones with the large, colorful Crate Paper one. The ones that look like little sugar cookies. Did you buy them or do something to regular plain brads? Like the rose bunny tail, too. Thanks so much.

Hi Beverly, those brads came that way. I believe they are called sugared brads by Doodlebug. I took all my little brads out of the packages and put them all together, so I'm not 100% positive, but I think that's who makes them! ;)
