Ink & Share Easter / Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to another Ink & Share Blog hop, I'm Laura Mackie I'm from Norfolk in the UK, Our theme this month is Easter / Spring.. It doesn't feel much like spring here yet, we keep having Snow!!! and theres even snow forecast for next weekend on Easter .. how confusing for the poor Easter bunny!!! talking of easter bunnies, my projects are all about the cute bunny from the We must Celebrate stamp set...

I've seen a few people make these kinda peek-a-boo style cards and couldn't resist making my own!

 isn't he cute! Their all looking pretty cheeky here hiding up! This card isn't just for Easter, to create my card I simply cut holes where I wanted using my circle Framelits, Ive added hand stitching around each circle, and sponged a whisper white layer behind with Soft sky ink and sponge, Each bunny was stamped and coloured with my Smoky Slate Blends and colour lifter, then fussy cut by hand!!

Ive also created this cute little Easter Treat box / bag using the Scallop Tag punch, so quick to make and hold lots of little chocolates inside our cellophane treat bags - quick to make and as I've found out quick to destroy and eat! so my 2.5 year old daughter saw and grabbed it (without me seeing) as she spotted the chocolates and yep destroyed it so she could eat ALL the eggs and bunnies inside!!!!! how relieved was I that I had photo'd it before it was attacked!!!!!!! 

 To make the cute little box/bag you need 
1 piece of cardstock full a4 sheet x 5cm / score at 11.5cm and 18.5cm, then using the scallop tag punch, punch either end as pic below, stamp all over I used a stamp from the We must Celebrate stamp set. I've used Smoky Slate ink on Smoky Slate Cardstock

1 piece of cardstock measuring 9cm x 15cm score on the 9cm edge at 1cm and 8cm, then turn and score on the 15cm edge at 5cm and 10cm, cut away as below, then stamp all over

Adhere together both bases, and voila - its done so easy, I love quick and easy treat gifts!
