On this last day of our parade - all of the Design Team participants are creating projects using the Spring Blessings stamp set. Just in time to inspire you for any Easter or Springtime projects you may need soon!
Today I have made some cute little treat boxes for the Easter dinner table or perhaps to bring when visiting a friend or loved one in a nursing home or even to just give a friend when dropping by to say 'hello'!
Fancy Phrases set and all other images are from Spring Baskets. I cut out two of the daffodils and layered them over the image with foam tape. Two of the paper pieced eggs are up on foam tape too - just to give a little dimension.
I found the box template at PaperCrafts Magazine under downloads from the 350 Cards and Gifts issue (scroll down till you come to the baby blocks template) I enlarged the template size 125% on my printer to come up with an approximately 2"x2" square box.
I cut the grass from green tissue paper (recycled from the inside of a gift bag I received!) using a die from MFT.
For the sentiments - I stamped the dotted oval framing with Wild Honey Ranger Ink and the sentiment in black - then cut it with a Petite Oval Nestability, embossed it and sponged with Mustard Seed Ranger ink before removing it from the die. I adhered it to the cover with foam tape.
I added some Orange Peel Stickles to the center of my daffodils for a little shimmer!
Today we also have an exciting announcement - Claire has chosen 3 new WMS Design Team Members - I am SO excited to welcome Tosha Leyendekker, Kate Whelan and Niki Estes!! whoo hoo! such talent these ladies bring to the table!! - Please welcome them when you visit their blogs linked below with the rest of the design team!!
We hope that you have enjoyed, and have been inspired, by our 4 day Stamp of Approval Parade!
Now it’s time for you to get your craftiness on as we invite you to participate in a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) competition.
Choose a card or project from any of the Design Team projects posted during our parade. CASE that project using Waltzingmouse Stamp images, and link it using the Inlinkz on Claire’s blog. At the end of the competition, one project will be randomly selected to be highlighted with a Parade of its own on several of the Design Team blogs.
You have one week to complete your project and link it. The competition will close on April 10th at 8:00 am Claire’s time (3 am Eastern, 2 am Central and Midnight Pacific time). The winner will be announced on Claire’s blog on April 11th.
