Welcome to my stop on the Stampin’ Addicts Occasions Mini Blog Hop! You’ve probably just come from Rubber Stamping and Card Making and enjoyed Yapha’s fabulous creations using the set My Matryoshka. (A big “thanks” to her for putting this hop together!)
The Chocolate Bunny stamp immediately called my name when I got the sneak peek of the Occasions Mini — the Cute Quotient is very high with this image! I had many ideas for this stamp, but only one of them for Easter! To keep my stop fairly brief, I have not included recipes for the cards. Stop back when the hop is over and I’ll re-post my projects with complete details. Please click images to enlarge.
- And so, Easter in its sugary, egg-y, frilly glory!
- Actually, my first thought for about this stamp was not of chocolate, but of the beautiful vintage metal chocolate molds. Getting that look took a bit of experimentation, but I liked this version best. It is silver embossing powder on Basic Gray card stock. It doesn’t photograph the best, but the effect IRL is charming.
- I love the look of individually cut words on cards and scrapbook pages. This stamp from By Definition seemed ideal for a birthday card. Also new from the Occasions Mini: Pinking Hearts Border Punch, Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit Die, and 5/8″ Satin Ribbon (Certainly Celery).
- Finally, just a little something when you need to say, “Sorry I chewed your ___ out.” Hopefully you won’t need to make this little 3″ x 3″ card too often!
I’m the last stop on the hop, but it’s really a big loop. So if you’ve just started, jump over to Stellar Stamps to see what Stella’s designed using the set Garden From the Heart.
