My Stampin’ Up! Easter Egg Hunt Berry Basket

My Stampin’ Up! Spring/Summer (Occasions) Catalogue 2015 Top 10 – No. 9 Berry Basket Bigz™ – Easter Egg Hunt Basket

Good morning, and how are you today? It’s starting to feel a lot like spring is on it’s way in my neck of the woods. It’s certainly a bit easier to get up in the mornings now they are a bit lighter anyway.

Today’s project is the 9th in my series of Top 10 favourites from the Stampin’ Up! Spring/Summer (Occasions) Catalogue 2015. At first I resisted buying the Berry Basket Bigz L Die , but then I was flicking through the calendar to see what was coming up in the first few months of the year when Easter popped up, and well you can probably guess what jumped into my online shopping basket after that!

If the weather is nice this year, I’ll organise a little Easter egg hunt in the back garden. We’ve got lots of places to hide them and the boys will love it. We’ve been to organised hunts before but I’ve not really enjoyed them that much for some reason.

I’ve made the Bedlam Brothers these little baskets to collect the eggs in. They both love the Cheerful Critters photopolymer stamp set so it was an easy design to come up with. I love that the Critters are “hiding” in the grass (made with the Fringe scissors). They are the same design to avoid any fighting over who has which one: which is a frequent battle in this household. They fight over which colour bowl, plate, cup etc etc they are going to have and yes, they always both want the same one!

I got the idea for using the Alphabet Rotary Stamp for the boys’ names, from a team mate Jenny. She posted about it on my upline’s team facebook page. This stamp had bypassed my radar for some reason. I don’t know why, as it’s a really useful addition to the stash.

Do you like my little Easter Egg? I covered the bunny’s face before inking the stamp and then cut the arms and ears off.

I also used designed a more grown up Berry Basket for my class ladies, for February’s class. It’s so pretty and can be used for gifts for any occassion, not just Easter.

I teamed it up with the Painted Petals stamp set, which is available in wood, clear and photopolymer. It’s a really pretty watercolour effect stamp set. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments, available in wood or clear.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s projects. Thanks for stopping by!

Don’t forget there’s still a few weeks Sale-a-bration left.
