In the last week there have been so many amazing Easter creations shared all over social media. Tevelvision commercials, radio stations, emails from stores, Blogs, Facebook pages, websites are all filling with Easter inspiration! Recently I saw a card on the Stampin’ Up! Blog that featuted ‘eggs’, but I know for a fact we do not have an ‘egg’ Stamp Set or punch, but once I saw how the ‘eggs’ we created I had to give it a try myself!
I pulled out my Balloon Celebrations stamp set and coordinating Balloon Bouquet punch which is offered as a bundle and got to work! I decided to use pastel colors so I selected Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, and Blushing Bride inks for my eggs. I stamped a trio of large Balloons from the Balloon Celebrations Stamp Set on Whisper White Cardstock then used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to punch them all out.
I learned a little trick when using the Balloon Bouquet Punch, do not Stamp multiple images side by side on the edge or a strip of cardstock – the double Punch will Punch chunks out of your stamped images. Instead cut a strip of cardstock about a 1/4″ wider than you balloons and stamp them in a line going up or down. This will allow you to easily punch many Balloons without loosing any of your stamped images!
Once I had three Balloons punched out I used my Paper Snips to trim off the rubber ends and turned them upside down. Viola! Eggs! I then added them to a piece of our Farmer’s Market Designer Series Paper and layered the main panel on a bit of Daffodil Delight to add some more pop. I decided on a Pear Pizzazz Cardstock base for a springy finish and a touch of some Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon left over in my stash. For the finishing touch I stamped the sentiment ‘You’re Eggstraordinary‘ from the Greatest Greetings Stamp Set in Cucumber Crush for some pop!
