My first project uses the Single Stamp called Blessed Easter. I cut the words away from the flower image to create two stamps as I want to use these beautiful tulips on more than just Easter Cards. I stamped the tulips in Jet Black StazOn on Whisper White and used my Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Pistachio Pudding and Gumball Green markers to color the image.
I used a 2-Way Glue Pen to add some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the flowers. I paper pierced around the oval adding a few sequins from our Gold Sequin Trim and separated the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper from the flowers with a strip of Blushing Bride punched with the Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.

My next project makes me drool, well, the chocolates do. :-) These are my favorite chocolate candies, Milk and White Milk Chocolate Truffles….yum, yum!! I discovered them back in December and have to force myself not to eat the whole bag.
I do have a VIDEO for this project so come back later this week.
These cute little treat holders use the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch at the top and have a little "tray" inside to hold the truffle. The bunny was created with three punches, the clouds with the Word Bubble Framelits and the grass with our Fringe Scissors.
