Guest Designer inspiration

Hi everyone! I have a special guest for you today. Mary-Anne is our guest designer this month and she has a super cute tag she created using our new "Easter fun" stamp set. Read more about how Mary-Anne created this awesome project.

Looking for a cute tag for those Easter gifts? Vanessa at V's Sweet Ideas just released this adorable Easter Fun set. It has a large basket image and cute little eggs that you can personalize with faces if you like. 

I wanted to make a tag using this basket so I stamped the basket with Memento ink and then, using some masking,  I stamped the eggs inside. I colored the eggs and basket with Prisma Color pencils and blended it with baby oil. I then flipped the basket stamp over and inked up the reverse to get the outline for the inside of the folding tag. I finished off the inside by stamping the fun sentiment that comes in this set in Memento ink again. Finally,  after fussy cutting both front and back sections I scored the yellow inside part and attached the front panel to make my tag. 

Thank you so much Mary-Anne for sharing this adorable tag. You can check out more of Mary-Anne's beautiful projects on her Flickr. Thanks for stopping by and Happy crafting!

_______________NEW CHALLENGE_______________


Welcome to our March challenge. This month our theme focuses on watercoloring. I personally love watercoloring. I have always loved it when I was little. When watercoloring was becoming a trend I purchased a watercolor cake set from Michael's  They were good but I wanted something better so I bought the peerless watercolors. There definitely was a big difference and I love my peerless. The colors are vibrate and I keep them in a 4x6 photo album that is easy to take everywhere with me. So for this month we want to see your watercolor creations. Watercoloring is so much fun and it's really hard to make mistakes when you watercolor. 

The winner will receive $10 off my shop
