Easter Goody Bags

Good morning!  It is hard to believe that tomorrow is Easter. 4 weeks in quarantine and this will be a very different Easter.  I usually make little goody bags for people at work and such, but since I am currently working from home, I think I will randomly leave them in a few neighbor's mailboxes instead.  The bags were in my stash and decided to pair them with Whimsy's Easter Memories stamp set. 
I made a silver version and a gold version of the bird's nest.  I stamped and embossed the eggs and then fussy cut them out.  I added a bit of foam tape behind each egg for added dimension. 

I added feathers, ribbon, and stamped the sentiment on a strip of paper. I curled it around a pencil, so it didn't lay completely flat.  The egg were colored with a Karin Brushmarker. 

Have a wonderful Saturday! We are dying Easter Eggs and making peanut butter cookies.  :)

Mason Jars

Good morning! I have a card today using a couple of new sets from Whimsy Stamps. I combined the Atlas Jar set and the Sympathy So Deeply set.   I colored everything using the Karin Brushmarkers.  Some people have asked what kind of paper I use and for me, the best paper is the Bristol Smooth.  The colors move and blend nicely on this paper.  Once everything was colored, I fussy cut each piece.  I used the Rounded Rectangles and the new Fabulous Florals paper. 
I layered the pieces using Crafty Foam Tape.  I added a doily in at the bottom.  I also tied a silk ribbon and tucked it in behind the flowers. 
Have a great day!
