Our March/April seasonal catalog is full of beautiful spring products, and, today, we are going to be sharing a few creative ideas with you using those items. If you haven’t had a chance to see the new catalog, you can view it here.
Our monthly blog hops are a wonderful way for you to gather a few ideas for future projects. You may be just starting here or you may have come from Lauren Moore’s blog – either way, you are in the right place. When you are finished viewing my Easter Blessings Gifts, click the link at the end of my post to “hop” on over to the next website. If you get lost along the way, you will find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.
With Easter scheduled a little earlier, I decided that I should attempt to plan ahead and create a few little gifts I could send to my kids. This year, our celebrations are being postponed because of prior commitments, but I wanted to make sure that I sent each of my children a little something special to celebrate the resurrection.
How sweet are these?! To create this adorable little card and box, I used the Daisy Meadow collection and the Easter Blessings stamp and thin cuts set. For those who wish to recreate these, I have a video tutorial for you at the end of this post.
The card is a fun fold card that opens using the little strap on under the wreath. I am sure there is a name for this card, but I honestly cannot think of it right at this moment.
The peacock-colored card base was decorated using papers from the Daisy Meadows collection and some images I stamped and shaded using watercolor paints and shimmer brushed.
I used the Easter Blessings stamp and thin cuts to create each one of those images. I like how simple they are and how beautiful they look with a little soft shading.
I created that charming little treat box using the same Daisy Meadow papers and Easter Blessings stamp set. The box was cut from peach cardstock the decorated using a variety of paper patterns and stamps.
The paper papers in the Daisy Meadows collection play so well together. The soft pastel colors mixed with peacock and cinnamon are an unexpected combination for spring, but the patterns are perfect.
To create the front panel of the box, I layered two oval shapes and added the stamped cross and flower images that were shaded with watercolors. I wanted to keep the design simple to reflect the season.
The top of the box was adorned with some paper pattern flags and a tag that I stamped with the sentiment “He is Risen”. I added a simple ribbon bow to complete and close the treat box.
As I said, I recorded the process to create each one of these Easter Blessing Gifts so that you could make them, too, but I was unable to have it ready in time for the hop. Unfortunately, I had a downed computer and a migraine so the video was not uploaded in time.
For those of you who are reading this after the original publishing date, you can view the video tutorial below to learn how to make an Easter Blessings card and a gift box of your own.
I hope that this project inspired you to create a few Easter gifts and that you enjoy the rest of the creations using products from our new March/April catalog.
