April Stylin' Blog Hop

Welcome to the April Stylin' Blog Hop! Whether this is your first stop or you've just come from Anji C. at Altered Scraps Blog I hope that you are inspired by all the wonderful creations.

I know that Easter is just a few days away but if you are like me you still have a few little treats to make and I have the perfect little box for you to make. I pulled out my Fancy Favor box and started decorating. This little box came together quickly and so cute. I had seen many samples where people had used the bid punch as a little chick coming out of an egg and I just had to replicate. I used the Wide Oval punch for the egg and then using my scissors created the zigzags. Now I just need to fill my box with some Easter grass and candy.

Items Used:
Stamps: None
Ink:craft (Sponging)
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Whiper White, Regal Rose
Accessories: Big Shot, Fancy Favor box, Wide Oval Punch, Bird Punch, Scallop Trip Punch, Polka Dots Embossing Folder

For my second project I created a card. I was looking at some DSP and I suddenly had some inspiration to emboss a piece of Lucky Limeade card stock with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and then sponge it with Very Vanilla Craft Ink. After I created the background I used a stamped image that was laying on my desk from the Apothecary Stamp set. I had stamped and colored the image but then decided against using it on another project. I felt it fit this card perfect. I added a mat to the image and some ribbon and whala, I had a beautiful card. Ribbon is my favorite accessory to add to any card so I was glad I had some coordinating Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon.

Items Used:
Stamp Set:Apothecary
Ink: Very Vanilla Craft Ink, Early Espresso
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso
Accessories: Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Labels Framelits, Stampin' Write Markers, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon

I made a little 3x3 card with a chick and egg this last weekend. They are so cute. I love the Apothcary Art Stamp Set and your card is beautiful.
