Easter Card Festive Friday Challenge #12

This is a challenge by Nicole Derendorf called 'Festive Friday' sounded like a lot of fun so thought I would join in. I had just made this card for one of my work collegues and thought I would use it for this challenge also.  I did have help from Becky Roberts, of Inking Idaho as she had a similar card on her blog although I did tweek it a little bit. When you are stuck with a design of a card you just google Becky cause she has the best ideas! Anyway hope you like it and that it may give you some ideas of your own.

I decided to make one project using the new Mouthwatering Stamp Set which will be available in April. I thought I would use the Stripes Embossing Folder with some added colour as I have wanted to try this technique for ages. Well one project ended up being quite a few as I ended up doing one for each stamp out of the set.

I brayered the Stripes Embossing folder with Rose Red Ink to get a 'Gingham' look. I used Rose Red, Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake Ink Pads. Rose Red, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake Cardstock. Scallop Border Punch, Brads, Ribbon.

Basic Black, Melon Mambo and Whisper White Cardstock. Basic Black, Melon Mambo and Garden Green Ink Pads. Word Window Punch, Ribbon, Candy Wrapper Die. Stamp Sets: Mouthwatering, Teeny Tiny Sentiments and Cute as a Bug Stamp Set for the ants (which is a retired set).

Cardstock: Early Espresso, Whisper White. Ink: Early Espresso, Certainly Celery, Crumb Cake.
Word Window Punch, Circle Punch, and Scallop Circle Die, Itty Bitty Box Die.

Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Whisper White. Ink: Wild Wasabi, Ridinghood Red.. Stamps: Something Sweet, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, and of course Mouthwatering.

Yes, I went a bit mad with the Gingham look, once I started I couldn't stop!

I hope this gives you some ideas on what to do with this stamp set.

Candy Cane Teapot Cosy

Gee it has been a while since I posted something, I made this for the 'Get Published' challenge by Stampin' Up!
So under all those flowers is a Tea Cosy, fabric is Candy Cane, and I used the Flower Folds die, which I must say makes it really easy, would hate to cut out all those flowers by hand.  Real Red Ribbon for the ties, and Subtles and Brights buttons to hold the flowers together and I have used the bakers twine to thread through the buttons. All products used are Stampin Up!
