Easter Treats

Good morning everyone.  I hope you're enjoying the long weekend.  My poor husband is full of a head cold (the flu according to him) so we'll be staying around the house today - which suits me because I've got a few card ideas in my head which I'd like to make.  

At my last Stamp A Stack class the girls made these gorgeous little Easter Treats.  

This little Sunnyboy container has little Easter Eggs in it - it would probably hold around 10 mini eggs and is a great gift idea.  The container is made from a piece of 15cm x 15cm designer series paper.   

The stamp set is Stampin' Up!'s A Good Egg from the current Idea Book and Catalogue.  I just love this stamp set and pull it out each Easter.  In the past I've also used the little circles stamp as bubbles on children's cards.  The little chick is also cute on new baby cards - see, quite a versatile stamp set.
You can't see it from the photo's, but I've added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the egg shell and it's been stuck on with a dimensional.  The chick has been stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured using ink and blender pens.

This is a great gift idea for neighbours, teachers, children, EVERYONE.

They're great Karen. How super cute! I've just brought the Pillow Box die so I look to forward to have a play with it. Dee
