We made some pretty projects in class last week using the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper.
All three of these projects can be used for Easter, or any occasion really.
I think I like the card best:
There's hardly any stamping on this card - just the sentiment. The rest is Designer Series Paper (just a bit of fussy cutting!) and a couple of embellishments.
TIP: my Pool Party cardstock was a little bright for the DSP, so I toned it down using a Whisper White inkpad. It's a little trick that I like to use often - just 'swipe' your inkpad across the cardstock and then use a tissue to wipe off the excess. Your cardstock will be pretty much ready to use straight away.
Here is a closer look at the box:
I've done the same 'swiping' trick on the inside of the lid. The lighter shade provides a bit more contrast. The sweet little tag shape is part of the Window Box set of dies.
The final project is the Egg Carton:
I've dyed mine using ink refills (a 50:50 mix of Wild Wasabi and Old Olive - 6 drops of each) and alcohol in a Spritzer.
The rest is just decoration, again using the Succulent Garden DSP and Sweet Sugarplum ribbon. I punched 4 holes in the egg carton using the handheld punch, to thread the ribbon through. I even punched out some 1" circles to go under the Easter eggs:
I think everyone enjoyed making these pretty projects! Which one is your favourite?
