Well, we've been busy, busy, busy with Easter crafts around my house. You'll definately want to scroll down the entire length of this post, as I'm going to be posting a couple of different projects and crafts for Easter today.
here. I've cut cardstock into different sized ovals. I've covered the white layer with Versamark and Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder to mimic the look of those 3D sugar eggs. Click on the pic to really see the sparkles!
The Easter Wishes sentiment is hanging in the middle of the card, and spins. (.......and, it actually DOES fold flat to fit into an envelope!!)

Every year, in our home, we decorate Easter Eggs on Good Friday. I usually do a few Ukrainian Easter eggs each year to add to my collection (or to replace those I have broken -- oops). Here's a pic of the one I did this year.
Then I got to thinking..........hmmm.........what about dyeing eggs with Classic Ink Refills? Basically, I squirted some of the refill ink into about half a cup of water and added 1 tablespoon of white vinegar to the solution. I was going for really, pale eggs. I'm sure it would have been possible to create brighter, more vibrant eggs too, with a slightly stronger solution, and more time in the dye, but I was going for a soft look.
Once they were dry, I used the Color Spritzer Tool and a Chocolate Chip Marker on them. Didn't they turn out great?
Classic Ink Refills: So Saffron (105225), Marina Mist (119668), Baja Breeze (111833), and Wild Wasabi (109014). Stampin Write Marker: Chocolate Chip (100071), and Color Spritzer Tool (107066).
I love, love, love crafts of all types, and I am dying to share this last project with you. I was laughing and giggling to myself while I was working on this last project. My husband said, "What are you cackling about"? I answered, "Natasha is going to flip when she sees this project.......she grumbled for days after I posted the jelly bean bracelet idea. This should REALLY get her going.......... <wink, wink>.". Plus, not to mention, that this, along with most of my projects, never seem to "fit into an envelope"......I tend to be very 3D. This project was sooooo fun to make, and easy too. Although my kids kept saying, are you done yet, are you done yet, are you done yet? I told them they could dig in as soon as I got a couple of pics. I appeased them with left over supplies :)
Okay, so technically, this is a SU project. There is the Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, and there is the banner from my cupcake challenge in the background (oh dear, that didn't fit into an envelope either), and if you look very closely, there ARE those little punches from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack, along with some Pearls Jewels........see Natasha? hee hee.
Hope you enjoyed these Easter projects as much as I did. Feel free to forward your comments, or pics if you attempt any of these projects.........we'd LOVE to see them!!!
