Easter Baskets

Have you seen the new DeNami Design cling stamps? The new release includes some of the cutest stamps for spring, and today the design team is featuring the brand-new Large Spring Basket cling stamp as our Product Spotlight for this week. It was so much fun thinking of ways to use this unique stamp! I couldn't decide whether to go with flowers or eggs, so I made one of each with Easter in mind. :)


My sweet little peeps were made from two different sizes of oval punches! The cracked eggshell portion gets its shape and design from the chevron border stamp in the new Modern Borders Set, and each chickie gets its sweet features from the Animal Faces stamp set. I've used the Small Happy Easter stamp for my sentiment and a bunch of supplies from the DeNami shop:

I took more of a clean and simple approach to my basket of Easter flowers (although you can see I still couldn't keep from tucking in a couple of Easter eggs!).


All of my flowers (colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits and a paper blending stump) come from the Whimsical Flowers stamp set, and the egg comes from the Easter stamp set. Other DeNami goodies used on this card include:

Now I just need to find a little time to create some more cards just like these and I'll be all set for Easter!

Don't forget that that as our Product Spotlight stamp, the Large Spring Basket will be on sale for the next week!
And be sure to swing by the DeNami blog today to check out the rest of the ideas the talented DeNami DT cooked up with this stamp!

Thanks for dropping in!

I need to get cracking on Easter cards...groan...sorry ;)
I love both of these - those chicks are adorable, and the floral basket is so pretty & sweet! Do you know, I don't have any oval punches? I'm going to look for one so I can make chicks too!

Colleen Dietrich said...

How super sweet these are! On the first, I love that you used oval punchez to make those peeps. :) I like their crazy shell patterns too!

The second card is elegant and feminine and definitely springy. It seems like that pretty basket is sitting on a lovely lavender scalloped tablecloth. Love the little eggs tucked in, too.
