April Blog Hop - Easter Wishes


Well there goes another month! This year is whizzing past so quickly & it will soon be Easter. 

I struggled a bit this month as I haven't got any current Easter stamps so had to think outside the box!


What did I have that remotely resembled an Easter egg? My Balloon Adventure Thinlet dies . . . . . .upside down!

Did you recognise them? I've diecut the balloons using the Sale-a-Bration Glimmer Paper. We're you lucky enough to get some? It proved to be a very popular choice & I know I had a couple of disappointed customers who missed out.


I can't decide whether I prefer the glitter eggs on a plain white background or on the Basic Grey background.

I also made a spring flower Easter card using the Flourish Thinlets. I've cut the leaves in Pear Pizzazz & the flowers in Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach & Sweet Sugarplum. The Lace Doily from the Spring/Summer Catalogue has been coloured using a Sponge Brayer and the Watermelon Wonder ink pad. A really quick & easy way to colour the doilies to match your project.


I've then placed the doily over the Whisper White Thick card & lightly brayered over it again using Watermelon Wonder to give a lovely lace effect directly on the card.


I've finished it off using the little wooden flowers from the Sending Love Embellishments. I've used two pieces that fit neatly together.

Next in the Blog Hop is Sarah-Jane & I'm sure she'll have a fab project for you!

I hope you've enjoyed my Easter projects and thankyou for visiting today. Happy Crafting!
