Easter Blessing Stamp Camp

Hi Everyone,

What a crazy Saturday I had yesterday!! My youngest son's school had their annual Basket Bingo yesterday so I promised baked goods, door prizes and of course I wanted a basket. I didn't win one though, which was no surprise. Then I also had a stamp camp. I was late to my own camp!! The bingo ran way over, my guests were a little early, so hubby had to play host for the five minutes that it takes to get from the school to the house.

Anyway, I wanted to share the projects we made at the camp. I believe everyone enjoyed themselves and the projects came out lovely.

I wanted to do an Easter theme, since the holiday is fast approaching. I love the coffee bags that are offered by PaperTrey, they are inexpensive and so much fun to decorate. I went with a very simple design, but the results were truly nice.

I also was quite inspired by Nichole Heady's design on a tag card and just had to do it! Isn't it lovely? I chose Almost Amethyst and dug into my stash of ribbon and found I had a gorgeous satin ribbon to match! How happy was I! I also used a stamp from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set So Many Scallops, but used "Easter Blessings" sentiment from PTI.




This next photo is what we made to go inside the bag. I made a treat holder for two Fun Size candy bars. I stamped a larger white label to wrap around the candy. Again, this is another inspiration from Nichole's blog. I just modified it for the Fun Size, instead of Nuggets candy. The results were great!



The next items are real colored eggs. The pink egg, we stamped Easter Blessings with Staz-On ink. The green egg was decorated with a belly band. The blue egg, we embossed a white flower on it. Embossing on eggs was actually quite easy, but I think I would recommend using an oven mit if you want to emboss all over the egg. We started with Whisper White craft ink and then finished with white embossing powder. The egg was cold, so I did notice that it took a little to heat set the powder. The results were fun!
I hope you enjoyed my presentation of my stamp camp.
