Spring Has Sprung Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our Spring has Sprung Blog Hop. If you are joining me from my friend Rose's Blog I am happy to hopped on over  and if you are just starting then please be sure and follow the link to the next stop.  As you hop a long we would love it if you would leave us a comment and let us know that you were here. My first card is inspired by all the ombre items that I have seen on pinterest and in the stores. An Easter Egg just seemed the perfect choice for such a technique. I used Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red and Cherry Cobbler and sponged the Glossy Card Stock after I embossed the cross with White Embossing Powder. I tip I do want to share is that if you are finding that your embossed area is looking a little less white and more like your ink color you can take a Blender Pen and go over the embossed area and help clean it up. This helps keep your sponged area looking nice and colorful and your embossed area white.
Supplies: Cherry Cobbler Card Stock and Ink Pad, Pink Pirouette Card Stock and Ink Pad, Riding Hood Red Ink Pad, Basic Rhinestones, Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Ovals Collection Framelits Dies, Glossy White Card Stock, Crosses of Hope Stamp Set, Trust God Stamp Set, Scallop Trim Corner, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, and 5/8" Organza Ribbon

My second project probably isn't to terribly new but it was an idea I had for an upcoming Craft Show and I thought I would share it with you. They are cute little Bunny toppers for our 1"x 8" Cellophane Bags. I used Whisper White Card Stock, Basic Black Card Stock, Pink Pirouette Card Stock and Basic Gray Card Stock. The punches I used are the Large Oval, Scallop Oval, 1 3/4" Circle, 1/2" Circle, Owl Builder, and Small Heart. Cute yet simple enough to make a bunch if you need them.

Thank you for stopping by and please let me know if you have any questions. I will be happy to answer them. Now I will send you on your way to Dawn's blog. Have fun! Tonya
