Easter Projects for New Stamp Club

Last night was the first evening of a new stamp club. It was so fun getting to meet such a great group of women and showing them the addictive fun of Stampin' Up!. We had an Easter theme and I demonstrated how to create these little baskets. The basket is built around the bottom of a Dixie Cup . These would be great favors for an Easter table and filled with little jelly beans or a colored egg.

The sentiment was printed out with MDS and then stamped using Stampin' Write markers for a bit of color.  

 Our second project was decorating Easter Eggs using our SU stamps. We just created the initial egg to get the hang of the technique but I brought the rest as examples.

Birthday Cards

Here is a sweet 16 card I created for our Megz. I wanted something bright and cheerful since she loves bright colors.

My sister the quilter has a birthday this week and I am sending this off today. I thought this Happy Hexagon die resembled a quilt pattern. I added a bit of stitching to the sentiment ( I need to take my machine in for adjustment - the stitching is a bit off) The matching button was created by stacking 1" circle punched card stock and covering with designer paper then coating with Crystal Effects.
