Things have been pretty quiet on the old blog for awhile. 2011 has been a busy, busy year so far! But I'm working on a bunch of new things to share so, rest assured, I'll be coming back on a more frequent basis. For now, I want to share some Easter cards using the adorable new stamps from Purple Onion Designs:
This little chickie is one from Stephanie Ackerman's Cracked Egg Collection for Purple Onion. These stamps are so much fun to work with! I love choosing the different colors for the egg. And I just love the little chickie peeking out from under the cracked shell! I used foam mounting tape and paper pieced the shell to give it some realistic dimension:
Here's another stamp from the collection. Love this bunny! My coloring got away from me and I wasn't entirely happy with the shades I used but, as Tim Gunn would say, I had to "make it work!" I do like the bright and funky colors; something different from traditional Easter pastels:
If you haven't had the chance, make sure you check out the whole collection here. They are so, so cute and I love Stephanie's whimsical handwriting on the sentiments.
Enjoy your day, friends! The Easter Bunny drastically over shopped for chocolate, so I'm off to help lighten the load! Maybe I should wait until after breakfast...
