{MFT} Pre-Release Pep Rally


For our Pre-Release Pep Rally, I chose to used elements from LJD Embellished Eggs stamp set and oh-so-fun matchy match Easter Elements dies to make some new Easter tags for my boys' Easter baskets! The old tags were made when the middle was a baby and he is almost 7 now (I added a tag when the 3 yr old came along). These were pathetic looking things, especially for a paper-crafter ;) It was high time I changed them out.

Here are the three tags that I made:


 As I said, I used Embellished Eggs for the stamping, and the coordinating Easter Elements to die cut the stamped chick and large egg, and just used the small egg die on it's own with no stamping. The chick is fun, because the wing is separate and popped up! I added each child's initial using the By the Letter Uppercase die-namics.  The 'happy Easter' flags were made by stamping some words from the Embellished Eggs set in Razzle Berry and Black Licorice ink onto the Fishtail Flag STAX and Layers dies. The dark CS you see is Hot Fudge and I know it seems kind of harsh in contrast with the Easter colours, but I know I LOVE chocolate, especially when it's in the form of Lindt Gold Bunnies (lol), so I wanted to bring in that chocolate factor ;) I also used Hot Fudge ribbon and Hemp Cord.

The tag itself is made using the Dizzy Doily Die-namic. I cut it twice, once from CS and once from heavier white board (the kind that comes with SU 12x12 paper packs- it's white and shiny, so it looks finished from that back and it cuts easily with the Die-namics.) The circles inside the dizzy doily are Circle 1 and 2 STAX. I sponged the shy using the Wonky Scallop Border as a cloud shaped template with Sno Cone ink.



Here are some treat holders that I made with the new Cone Treat Box and Loopy Bloom Die-namic.
The houndstooth pattern was stamped onto the cones using the new LJD set Spring Backgrounds.



Here are the new Die-namics that I've used:
