Happy Easter Eggs

Welcome to another beautiful day here at My Little Slice of Bliss! Today the DeNami Design Team is sharing designs over on the DeNami Design blog that show off the stamp in this week's Product Spotlight: F160 Happy Easter.

Recently, my hubby gave me a set of egg-shaped dies, and I couldn't resist using them for a trio of Easter-egg themed cards for today's Product Spotlight! Here's what I created:

A pair of egg-shaped cards! I used only two stamps on both of these: Happy Easter and Elegant Word Plate, but I amped up the "festive factor" with lots and lots of washi tape from the DeNami Design store.

DeNami products: Purple/White dots, Green Stripes, Yellow/White dots, Pink Stripes washi tape and baker's twine from the Confetti Twine 3-pack

DeNami products: Lime/White dots, Pink Chevron, Teal Chevron washi tape

I also tried a standard A2-sized card using another of my new egg-shaped dies. I was trying to recreate the look of this purple Faberge-style egg. To do so, I embossed my egg diecut with my Wire Fence Embossing Folder from the DeNami store, and rubbed a metallic gold ink pad across the raised embossing to give it a gilded look. Then I embellished each point of intersection in the design with liquid pearls.

You can see the sheen of the pearls a little better in these two photos:

Oh Emily, you are giving the Easter Bunny a serious run for his money in the decorating Easter Eggs department! I love the bright fun stripes on the washi tape eggs. Great idea!
And the purple Faberge one is soooo elegant and perfect for Easter. The little touch of gold on the raised embossing is lovely.
Hope you are enjoying some spring weather down your way. I can actually see spots of lawn popping up through the snow banks today. Yea!!!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful work! :)

You are a washi tape genius! I adore the decorated eggs and that floral die cut. The sentiment is perfect of course :) The last card is so precise and pretty. I love the subtle sheen of the perfect pearls!
