Floral Frames Easter Card

The Floral Frames stamp set is so pretty and versatile but for some reason it had never ‘clicked’ to me that you can literally insert any sentiment you like into to the Centre of the wreath – lightbulb moment 💡 !!!!

I’m such a fan of this gorgeous stitched label die and somehow it has made it onto almost all of my Easter projects! Its size works perfectly with this design and I love the fresh fig/lovely lipstick, pear pizzazz and mossy meadow colour way.

I left the flowers white and added clear wink of stella for some subtle shimmer. The finished effect of the cards is really fresh and clean.

Creme Egg Exploding Easter Box

I love exploding boxes – they are fairly straightforward to make, and when you decorate them with beautiful papers and ribbons you can achieve such a wow factor!

I wanted to make an Easter gift box with a twist, and the How Sweet it is DSP has such a fun yet pretty vibe. I never thought I would like this paper as much as I do, and its set off perfectly by those gorgeous butterflies!

At the suggestion of my husband would you believe (!) I made these boxes slightly shallower at 3″ tall x 4″ wide and the insert provides a neat holder for those chocolate eggs.

I decided to use Cadbury Oreo eggs for this project as they were a good match to the DSP, but Cadbury Creme Eggs would fit just as well.

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter 🐣 xx

Gingham Gala Easter Bunny Pouches

When I spotted these adorable chocolate bunny paws in the supermarket, I couldn’t resist making these gorgeous Easter Bunny pouches to hold them. They couldn’t be simpler to make with the envelope punch board, and the finished size of the pouch measures 3″ x 4″.

I am so in love with that Easter bunny from Fable Friends and this time, I coloured him with crumb cake blends.

The gingham gala DSP is so perfect for Spring with its pattern and colour. I earned the matching ribbons during saleabration, but you could achieve a similar effect by colouring some whisper white ribbon with blends. This is also a really cost effective way of achieving ribbon to match your projects.

You can see how I made these Easter pouches by watching the video tutorial for my Beautiful Blizzard Snowflake treat pouches below – although the products used in the video are different, the method and dimensions are exactly the same.

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter xx

Fable Friends Easter Cards

I was a huge Beatrix Potter fan when I was growing up, and Fable Friends is reminiscent of Peter Rabbit and all his friends! It’s such a great Easter stamp set for any age.

I’ve become a huge fan of the double mat layered stitched rectangle look and can’t stop using this layout at the moment. I adore all of the stitched detail framelits by Stampin’ Up! in general, but I love how the rectangles provide a framed focus to the image, and they work so well on these sweet animals.

I stayed with a gray granite card base, sentiment label and ribbon to make the main image really stand out and really like the tone on tone look for the background.

Such a beautiful, classic stamp set that works well for many different occasions xx

I wanted to add a little sophistication to my Easter table this year with these gorgeous Floral Romance Easter crackers. Crackers for Easter? Well why not! These crackers fit a box of mini eggs perfectly 🐣 although there’s room for a few sweet treats of your choice!

Although by nature I’m usually attracted to bright, bold colours, there’s such a soft, feminine elegance to these stunning papers. The spring colours are just beautiful and perfect for this time of year.
