Happy Easter To My Peeps and Easter Tag!

It's just a few days before Easter now, the cards have been made and mailed, chocolate has been stashed and treat bags have been filled with goodies for Amie's classmates.

I had a cute stamp set I got last year from Close To My Heart and never got to use, so I pulled it out and used a technique from the Pattern Play Class, Day 2 - stamping on patterned paper. I stamped a chevron stamp with versamark on some polkadot paper from a baby paper pad I had and used clear embossing powder to create a resist. Then I sponged Distress Inks over top to color the background. I used another page from the same paper pack across the top of the card and stamped Easter eggs on the back of that paper, colouring part of it in with Tombow markers. I stamped 3 Peeps bunnies on yellow paper by creating a mask for the centre bunny and then stamping another one on each side. I brushed Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles over top to create a sugary look. I cut out the bunnies and eggs and popped them up with foam tape and then put on the banner I cut from the Heritage Cricut cartridge after stamping with the sentiment "Happy Easter To All My Peeps".

 I used a yellow marker to highlight the edge of the bunnies.
The background of the eggs was pink flowers so all I had to do was color in some of the details.
The treat bags for Amie's class - I made a tag to include with each bag by cutting an egg shape from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge out of patterned paper and stamping on top of it before gluing it to a tag shape. I colored in the word Happy with a blue marker and used Stickles on the chevron pattern, which is a Technique Tuesday stamp.

I recently bought sticker labels from Vistaprint with "From Your Friend, Amie" printed on them, which I stuck to the back of each tag.
Hope everyone has a wonderful, happy Easter!
