Mini Cups…

… of Ferrero Rochers.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Safe & Happy Easter.

You may remember I created some of these way back in December for the local Christmas Fair.  Well, as it happens, they have an Easter Fair on the Good Friday each year, so I went along.

Thinking that they may be popular & a little different to what is on offer I created a heap of them & decided that I would only put a small display out at a time, but have more in hiding if needed.  They were a huge hit & couldn’t keep up the demand.

I originally found the idea on Pinterst sometime ago & for once in my life, had written the instructions on a piece of paper.  Mind you it took me a little bit to find them, but so glad I did.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

To create my cups I’ve used lots of lovely DSP, including – By the Shore, Floral Boutique, Go Wild (retired), Cupcakes & Carousels (2017 Occasions), Affectionately Yours plus a heap of other DSP which is not shown.  For the “saucers” I used coordinating Cardstock which was punched using the 2″ Circle Punch or the Layering Circles Framelits.

To decorate the cups, lots of lovely Punches, Dies & Stamps were used – Blossom Punch, Elegant Butterfly & Bitty Butterfly Punches, Bold Butterfly Framelits, Botanical Builder Framelits, etc plus “Seaside Shore” Stamp Set to name a few.

Be sure to pop back in a couple of days time to check out another lot I created.April

Head over to my Online Shop to check out the 2017 Retirement List & to place your order.  Items are selling out fast!  When placing an order Online, don’t forget to use April’s Host Code.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Technique Treats

Today I am sharing with you one of the cards created for our Technique Treats way back in March 2016.  It is using the lovely little “Easter Lamb” Stamp from the 2016 Occasions

March 2017 Technique Treats

Catalogue.  You could easily swap it out for a more current stamp set along with a different sentiment or greeting & it would be a whole new card.

 

To create my background I used Pear Piazzazz & Soft Sky Re-Inkers, but again you can easily change your colours to suit your card.  Spray shaving Cream onto a Paper Plate, Alfoil or Photo Copy Paper before randomly adding drops of Pear Pizzazz & Soft Sky Re-Inkers into the Shaving Cream & swirl through with the Simply Scored Tool being carful not to mix too much.

Place a piece of Shimmery White CS into the Shaving Cream until all CS is covered.  You could do more pieces if you want so that you can use them at a later date.  Wipe excess off with a Tissue.  Use the piece for your card background or run it through the Big Shot with a Die.

If you head on over to the Technique Treats Page, you will find another Tutorial using the same Technique along with heaps of other fun Technique Tutorials.  You also receive separate instructions for your Techniques which means you are able to file in a folder & keep for later.

Until next time, Happy Stampn’
