Backyard {Basics} Egg Hunt

Good Sunday morning friends!  Any stampin' plans today?  It's kind of a drizzly day here today...perfect day to spend in my craft room :-)  Last night I had my Burlap and Blooms wreath class and we all had so much fun!  I had 18 crafty ladies packed into my house...we laughed, we wrapped (burlap), we glued and we ate.  This is what I love most about Stampin' Up!...the friendships that have been made and all the fun we have! 
Before everyone arrived last night, I did have a bit of time to sneak in a little stamping time.  I'm trying to stay ahead of the game and decided it was time to work on some Easter creations.  This card might just be one we make in my March Stamp Clubs :-)
Confession time...I have had a pack of Natural Composition paper for well over a year and this is only the second time I've used it.  WHY?!?!?!  This paper is gorgeous with the shiny, embossed patterns!  It was the perfect paper for my card!
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Sky, Eastern Elegance DSP, Watercolor paper, Natural Composition Specialty
Ink ~ Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake, Soft Sky, Metallic Gold, VersaMark
Stamp Sets ~ Backyard Basics, Delightful Dozen, Gorgeous Grunge
Other Supplies ~ Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Very Vintage Designer Buttons, Gold Bakers Twine, Gold Embossing Powder
Wondering where that gold button came from?  I embossed one of the Very Vintage Designer Buttons with gold embossing powder.  This picture doesn't do it is beautiful! 
I have some ideas in my head for an Easter basket to go along with this it's time to see if I can bring those ideas to life!
Happy Stamping! 


  1. Nice! I'm like you, love the gold button!!

  2. You have some serious Spring mojo going on friend! Another sweet and subtle beauty :)
