Easter Eggs For Sale!

Hi Stampers!

Today is a new Loves Rubberstamps Challenge and the theme this week is to create a tag or have a tag somewhere on your project. Well, I also serve on the Design Team for The Cutting Cafe and this week we had a super fun assignment of using Regina's new Little Red Wagon Template. I had a super cute project in mind that creates a little scene with a separate project for each but that are designed to go together...LOL... make sense?

So my post today will be a merge of my Design Team Post for The Cutting Cafe and some details about how I created my project for the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge.

First I will show you a picture of the whole sha-bang...so you can see what I am talking about...

Here is the set together... I created the little Easter Wagon using the Little Red Wagon Template for my project this week for The Cutting Cafe, and the fun Spring card with the homemade tag is for the Loves Rubberstamps challenge. Don't these look adorable together!

Let's start with the cute wagon!

Now...even though the name of this file is "Little Red Wagon" you can make your wagon any color you want - LOL! That is what makes it so much fun because you can change the colors for the seasons or occasions. I am thinking this would look super cute done up in fall colors with leaves and pumpkins in it...you know what I will be making come October :)  This file also comes with three sized boxes that you make and stack inside also, some fun embellishments, and sentiments for your little care packages! You totally need this file...I am telling you!

Because mine is a little Easter Wagon...what better to fill it with than some of my favorite Easter treats... Cadbury CARAMEL Eggs and those yummy, addicting, robins eggs! So good! I decided to make my wagon have wood slats because it's carrying eggs...so I used my new Die-Namics Barbed Wire Fence die from My Favorite Things. It even has the embossed wood details! I LOVE LOVE this die! The upward posts are the posts from the fence and the two strips are actually the strip of paper I had left over after cutting the fence posts out...perfect huh, and no wasted paper :) That cute little bunny is called Bunny Lucy from C.C. Designs! I love her :)

Here is a closer look at Miss Bunny Lucy...

I colored her hair and skin with copics, and then used spectrum noir alcohol ink markers on her outfit.

Now here is a look at my card with the tag all tucked in...

And the Tag Pulled Out...

The Bunny and the Eggs are from the C.C. Designs Spring Has Sprung Stamp Set and the Eggs Sentiment is from their Spring Logos Stamp Set. This bunny is soooo adorable! I colored everything on this with Spectrum Noir Markers except for his little cheeks, that is the copic color R20. I liquid appliqued his tail for "fluff" and added bling to the flower centers and white gel pen designs to the eggs.

Do you notice something new?? YEP... I tried sewing on my card for the FIRST TIME!! EEEKKK! I threaded the machine on my first try too!! Do you notice what is missing? YEP! No fingers attached! I didn't accidentally sew one to my card - LOL!

Just don't look at the bottom right corner because that was where in the instructions it said when you were done to go in reverse to "seal" it or something like that but I am sure I did it wrong because it is blobby. I decided for my first time sewing to use a zig zag stitch so it was harder to tell if I went straight or not - LOL! All in all I am really proud of my first "sewn" card - and I think my blobby corner just adds to the country charm ;)

I do need to study some YouTube videos of how to turn corners and how to stop when your finished but it will be fun to try and learn because I love the look of the sewn cards.

Here is a final look at my two cuties together so you can see the little bunny closer too...

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to play along with us this week in our Loves Rubberstamps Challenge.... AND... Be sure to stop by The Cutting Cafe and purchase the Little Red Wagon Template for yourself! You will seriously love it!

Tomorrow afternoon at The Cutting Cafe's Blog you will get to see what the rest of the Design Team members did with their Little Red Wagons! I can't wait to see them because there is literally so many things you can use it for and decorate it with! It will be a blast!

Have a great day all!
