I just wanted to quickly share these fun Easter Carrot treats with you today. These were a bit of a last-minute creation as I had actually forgotten that I'd purchased the Polka Dot Cone Cellophane Bags from the Occastions Catalogue!
So last minute that I didn't have time to go very far looking for orange treats to go inside my carrots. Best I could come up with was a couple of bags of Darrel Lea "jaffas" and a giant bag of Smarties from which I picked out all the orange ones! LOL!
Then my eldest child reminded me that carrots can be purple too so we picked through the Smarties and made a purple carrot as well.
The bags are tied closed with Cucumber Crush lace and a little tag popped on, stamped with the And Many More stamp set.
Here's another very simple card I made on the weekend retreat:
I've used Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey and Whisper White cardstock, Botanical designer vellum, Perfect Pairings stamp set and Mossy Meadow ink. I also used the Project Life corner punch. That's it! Super simple and easy to make lots in one go.
Welcome to another Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop - our theme this month is "Wedding Dreams"
My eldest child's former teacher got married last weekend and since she was his teacher for 2 years in a row, we really wanted to give her a congratulations card. When she returns from her honeymoon he can take this card to school to give to her. She is such a sweet young lady and we loved having her as his teacher.
Since she is young and trendy, I didn't want to go too old-fashioned or shabby chic etc. I wanted to keep it clean and simple and include some bling!
I also didn't really have too much in the way of specific wedding stamps so I actually did NO STAMPING on this card! OMG!
I've used the Expressions Natural Elements for the sentiment. I tried out a few different options for colouring it and adding some sparkle. I settled on the bottom option - emboss with Whisper White embossing powder and then add Clear Wink of Stella over the top.
It is a little difficult to capture the sparkles on camera - always much prettier in real life - but hopefully this photo below gives you an idea of how each option looks.
The materials and tools I used for this card were:
Just recently my team and I spent a lovely weekend away at our annual team craft retreat. I'm never sure what I'm going to make at these weekends so I take ALL my stuff (well, just about!) and just see what happens and what mood takes me. This time I mostly created cards using sketches for the layouts. I'll share them all with you over the next few posts but here's one to get us started.
It's a very simple card using just stamps, inks and papers.
