Easter Treat Box made with Inky Doodles stamps.

Hello again, thanks for coming back to visit my blog.
Today I'm sharing another Easter project that we made at one of our Out Of The Blue paper craft workshops recently.
We have started stocking Inky Doodles stamps in the shop & the Spring Applique set was perfect for this project - an exploding box with a treat inside!.

So, we started by cutting & scoring a box shape & lid.
Square pieces of card were cut to fit each panel & then these were decorated with the stamped & coloured bunnies, hens, sheep, chicks etc.
These were all coloured with promarkers & extra colour was added with blended distress inks.

The chocolate Lindt bunny is sat within a strip of card decorated with flowers. To stop him rattling around once the box is shut he is held in place with a sticky dot.

The perfect little treat for Easter!.

Hope you have lots of treats lined up this Easter.
Please pop back again soon for more Spring project ideas.

Spring Chicken Card.

Hello, & welcome back. Thanks for visiting my blog. 
Well, I've built up a collection of projects since I was last here & I'd like to start sharing them with you, so here we go.

Today, as we are approaching the Easter bank holiday weekend I thought I'd share a Spring card made using the Spring Applique, Ditzy Prints, & Stitched Alphabet stamp sets from Inky Doodles.

I have to say, these stamps have already proved to be a very popular range in the shop so we will be re stocking again soon.
The stamps are lovely to use, easy to colour & have such cute designs with lots on one sheet which makes them great value for money
All of the images were stamped with black archival ink & coloured with a selection of promarker pens & then layered up with 3d foam.
I used Distress inks to blend a sky & grass background, around the die cut frame & also around the outer, ditzy floral background.

I used the Stitched Alphabet stamp set to stamp the letters to spell 'Spring', coloured them with yellow promarkers  & stuck them in place with 3d foam.
I finished off the card by adding some twine, ribbon & a button & mounting onto a Kraft card blank.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you all have a relaxing Easter spent with friends & family.
Don't eat too much chocolate though!

See you again very soon.
