Welcome to the Alaska Achievers Blog Hop where I will be saying a big Hello Easter with the projects that I’ll be sharing with you.
Sale-a-Bration has been a great Promotion this year and there have been some wonderful FREE Products on offer. With just under two weeks left before these items will no longer be available, we have based this hop on either Sale-a-Bration items or products from the Spring/Summer Catalogue.
With Easter on the horizon, I thought I’d focus my attention on the Easter Bunny. I recently bought a little Easter Decoration that gave me the inspiration for what I’m about to share with you. I’m doing my very best to share some Spring feeling and say hello Easter, even if we’re still waiting for the weather to change here in the UK.
I love everything rustic and thought that the colours used in this little decoration, although quite different, would be rather lovely for an Easter project that I was willing to try.
The Decorative Ribbon Boarder Punch has been used to resemble the twisted jute of the decoration. I felt that the top matting layer seemed a little lacking, so simply added a couple of score lines to break up the plain background. I think it works quite well.
Its hard to see, but I’ve heat embossing the bunny with White Embossing Powder on Very Vanilla card stock. He’s not too hard an image to fussy cut thankfully and comes from the Hello Easter stamp set, along with the simple sentiment.
You’ll find the little dies I used, from the Lots To Love Box set, other than the shapes I’ve used for the eggs, which were from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits. Being so used to brightly coloured, foil covered eggs, I wasn’t too sure about this colour for the eggs, but over all, I do believe it works and it replicates the decoration well.
Hello Easter, Hello little bunny … I couldn’t resist him when I saw him up for sale in our local gift and chocolate shop, Truffles & Twine in Kimbolton. Still in the little cello bag, he fits beautifully into this Lots To Love Treat Box. You can create an aperture with pretty much any shape that you like. I’ve used the Oval framelits here. I love the little wooden elements, especially as you can colour them with the Stampin’ Blends to make them whatever colour you like. These alcohol pens really are so very versatile.
Well, I really hope you’ve liked what I’ve shared with you today. I highly encourage you to hop on round the rest of the achievers to take a look at what fabulous inspiration there is on offer.
