Easter Tag – Designer Crafts Connection Blog Hop

The talented designers at the Designer Crafts Connection group have chosen to share an Easter project as part of a Blog Hop. I couldn’t resist using some of the baby bunnies from my new Sweet Baby Clear Stamps in an Easter project.Easter_tag

I began with papers from the Sizzix BasicsGeometrics and Fox Tales paper pads. I wanted shades of blush, peach and aqua with a hint of green. I started by cutting a 3″ x 4″ rectangle from the aqua paper to use as a base.1Embossing

Next, I used a 2 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ tag and embossed it using the Floral Tapestry Textured Impressions Folder. I lightly inked the edges with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink Pad. I added a piece of Simple Stories Summer Vibes Washi Tape along the bottom. I adhered the tag to the rectangle.

For added interest I die cut a “filmstrip” shape using a die from the Documented Die set. I inked the edges with Distress Ink Pad, Tea Dye and adhered it to the tag. I wanted this layer to be interesting but still be able to see the detail behind it.3Bunny_Banner
I die cut a banner from the same Documented Die set. I stamped the bunnies using my       Sweet Baby Clear Stamps. I layered this on top of the filmstrip piece.

Next, I die cut a little branch using the Spring Greenery Die and adhered that on top of the film strip.

Here’s where I would have done it differently IF I had the Tattered Florals Die, but I didn’t so I made do with a flower shape and had to cut about 1/4″ to separate each petal. I did this so I could curve the petals to add dimension using a pencil and rolling each petal inwards. I inked the edges using the Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

I’m not sure of what die I used to cut the detailed centers of the flowers. I used a 1/8″ punch to put a hole in the center of the flowers and used a small gold brad to hold it all together. Then I glued the flowers to the tag.7Flowers_finished

This was so simple and I used supplies from my stash. I hope you enjoyed this project. Please check out the other Easter projects by the talented designers at the Designer Crafts Connection blog hop.
