Welcome to everyone whose hopped over from Laurel's blog! (If you need to start from the beginning, go here!) The following samples were made using the new Sweet Spring stamp set:

I love making favor/treat bags almost as much as filling them up! The topper was made using paper from the "5 & Dime" 8x8 paper pack by October Afternoon (love!) I folded over the bottom of the tag and cut it with my Martha Stewart fringe scissors. The pink circles were stamped using the bottom of a pen and pigment ink and sporadically filled in with pearl jewels. I masked all but one of the chocolate bunnies (leaving the fully intact one) and embossed onto textured paper. I love dimension so I adhered him to the tag using foam squares. I stamped and embossed the sentiment, "Easter", and used the same ink to "color" the bottom of tag. I tied a bow at the top of the tag and tied it to the topper using Timeless Twine! Sweet and simple!!

WARNING !!! The following card is not for the easily offended! ;) Immediately when I saw this adorable (and funny!) chocolate bunny stamp being progressively eaten I knew I HAD to make this card. I recently purchased this sentiment rubber stamp on clearance at my job and have been dying to use it! I love the irony of it still being a "nice" card. The bunnies were embossed and then colored in with watercolor pencils.

Now hop on over to Stephanie's blog and say hello!
