Stampin Friends Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin Friends March Blog Hop! We will be hopping on the third Thursday every month, with a different theme to inspire you each time. The theme for March is "Spring or Pastel colors." 

If you arrived from Carolina's Blog, thank you for continuing with the hop! If you didn't then be sure to click on the previous button below to see what she created for us. 

Be sure to visit this month's Guest Hoppers:

Do not forget to click the Next button below to check out Lynn’s lovely creations. If you get lost along the way, I have provided the full list of participants at the bottom of this post. PLUS, keep reading for a change to win a bunch of new crafting gifts! 

Ready to view what I created?

Here is a picture of all the items together. I will go through the details on each individual project below. 

First to show is a card. I chose to use a new to me stamp set/punch bundle called Grateful Bunch with the Blossoms Bunch punch. (Don't try to say that too fast or too many times. Fun tongue twister). At first, I didn't think I needed another flower stamp set but this is not like the others and well yep, I needed it! And you will too! (Your Welcome) It may be hard to tell in the photo but I had stamped off in Blushing Bride ink the lace border to the left and right of the DSP strips. There is added sparkle to the flowers using the Clear Wink of Stella® glitter brush. If you look close you will see the shimmer. 

Next up is a recycled Starbucks iced coffee glass jar. It's filled with Easter Peanut M & M's. Added an Easter tag and viola you have yourself a quick treat to give to anyone.

I had used the 1 ¾” Circle punch and a strip of ¼” by 6” piece of Birthday Bouquet DSP to cover up the Starbucks logo on the lid. 

Final project for today is one that Stampin' Up! showcased with other Easter inspired creations on their website. 

This envelope box is the perfect size to hold a York Peppermint Patty egg. 

After creating these items for the hop, I noticed that they coordinated with the Bunny Banner and Easter Berry Basket I made last week. So I just had to take a photo with all of them together. Don’t you love how everything matches?
