No Way! You are seriously not doing EASTER already! Well…yes I am…I did….BUT it’s only JANUARY i hear you scream…..I know, I know, but i was having sooooo much fun…and I saw Hot Cross Buns in the shops! That counts, right???? Lol.
In seriousness though, I have a market to prepare for and I saw these adorable baskets on Pinterest…but no tutorial 🙁 Well that set the challenge for me…I had to have one, and I had to nut out how to do it. So I sat and played, and Viola….an Easter Basket was born 🙂
Aren’t they gorgeous? And the new Watercolour DSP from the new mini catalogue being released on the 28th of this month, had just thre right flair for the project! Very ‘Eastery’. It reminded me of drawing and decorating eater eggs when I was a kid.
And I absolutely adore this stamp set….I know it’s retired, but sometimes an oldie is a goodie! This card I totally CASEd from a google image, but it was just sooooo cute…in a grown up way, with grown up colours I had to reproduce it. I believe it was from Inking Idaho in the USA. She always does a fabulous job!
And last but not least, were these 4″ x 4″ cards. But then I didn’t have an envelope the correct size…so out come my Envelope Punch Board and I whipped up a matching envelope, complete with Easter Egg stamp in matching ink. The colours used here are Calypso Coral, Island Indigo (two of my most favorite colours ever) and Wisteria Wonder.
So what do you think? Was I a little enthusiastic in beginning Easter this early? Lol.
