Easter's on its Way!

Hi there Stampers! Ok so it's still a ways to Easter but this morning I got together with a friend and we made some super stinking cute Easter things!
We knew we wanted to use the typical soft pastel colors for our projects and what better paper to use than the Delicate Dots DSP from the Sale-a-Bration catalog!
For the first card we started out with a WW base, added our Delicate Dots DSP and then stamped our bunny from the Eight Great Greetings set from the new Occasions Mini. This set is now available on a preorder so you can get a jump start on your spring projects. We colored our bunny in, punched him with the Wide Oval Punch and then added our scalloped DSP around the edge. How did we do that you may ask? Well I went to an awesome blog called Stamps, Paper, Scissors and Jan showed me how!!! It's a little bit tricky to get the scallops just right all the way around the oval but it is worth all the fuss! Isn't it just darling?!?! Next we die cut our Sizzix Eggs in Certainly Celery and So Saffron and then ran them through again in both the Swiss Dots and Spots and Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folders. Brilliant if I do say so myself! The ribbon is Certainly Celery also from the SAB catalog.

This next card is one I am doing at my next workshop (Hi Melina! Sneak peaks for you!). I used the same bunny from the Eight Great Greetings and paired it with the Delicate Dots DSP, the So Saffron Ribbon and the Polka Dot Punches all from the SAB catalog. I punched out the flower image using the Five Petal Flower Punch, added a second flower punched in Pretty in Pink and put a brad in the center. The Eyelet Border Punch looks like lace along the bottom of the DSP.

The box you see is the new Matchbox Die also in the new Occasions Mini catalog available April 1st.
It is so versatile and easy to assemble after you've done it once or twice. The die also comes with 3 different tags that are super cute to layer. We die cut some Certainly Celery for the box base and added some more of the Delicate Dots DSP for the lid. We wrapped up some Hershey Nuggets with matching paper and wrapped some more SAB ribbon to finish it off. These Matchboxes are perfect for party favors, wedding favors or little gifts just because! I know I'll be going back to this die again and again!
