Easter is just around the corner…

Can you believe that Easter 2015 is just around the corner?  And I believe one day this coming week is supposed to be 40 degrees!  Well, with rain – but still 40 degrees?  Do I need to run out and buy a bathing suit?  Is it possible spring might be in the far horizon?  Well, until it warms up, I am cheering myself with my passion – colorful paper crafting.  And that’s what we will be doing for our March Stamp Camp – paper and colors.

2015-02-28Happy Easter Bunny is great for taking away the winter blahs.  How can you feel down when looking at this cheerful bunny dancing away and surrounded by vines, flowers and Easter eggs?  Tuxedo Black Memento ink is used on this single stamp and provides a crisp image perfect for coloring with your Blendabilities.  The finished image is placed on a Pink Potpourri background that is textured with the new Spring Flowers Embossing Folder.  The bunny is then framed with a Pistachio Pudding oval die cut with the oval framelits.  As a finishing touch, a Baker’s Twine bow and several pearl-enhanced butterflies from the Papillion Potpourri stamp set are punched and adhered.  Note how the envelope can be decorated by just stamping the top part of the image.

2015-02-28aA more colorful version of the card  is shown here using my 3 DSP pattern layout.  I love this layout and have now used it on 3 totally different cards.  it is great for using up those small pieces of DSP!  This version is very similar to the card above using the butterflies and Bakers Twine.  But the addition of the DSP from the All Abloom paper stack ($6.95 in the big catalog) really brings out the colors of the card.

You will choose your favorite version of Happy Easter Bunny at our March Stamp Camp.  In case you don’t have the dates on your calendar, this stamp camp will be held on  March 5th (2 – 9 PM), 6th (2 – 9 PM) and March 7th (9 AM – 4 PM).  You can come whenever it is convenient for you.  As always, all materials and supplies are covered in the $12.00 charge.  We will be doing 4 projects – 3 cards and a spring/Easter basket.  Check the blog daily until all 4 projects have been posted.  We will have a colorful time!

Give me a call or drop an E-mail if you happen to know which day you will be coming.  Blessings, Rosemary – 630/759-3089 – paperrose01@aol.com
