Stampin' Addicts Occasion Mini Blog Hop

 Hello and welcome to Stampin' Addicts Occasions Mini Blog Hop. 
If you have been following the hop in order you have just arrived from Heidi's Blog where she created beautiful projects with the Tea Shoppe set. There are 16 stops on the hop and I am lucky #7. So if you are just beginning with my blog be sure and hop all the way around till you come back to my blog so you won't miss any of the awesome projects the gals have created to share with you.

The stamp set I chose to showcase is Heaven Blessed.  I love bunnies and bought this set just for them.  I did managed to use all 7 images.  Hmmm, 7 again, might be time to go buy a lottery ticket.

This card was created for a swap with other demonstrators.  It uses the seated bunny and the Happy Easter images.  See that bit of pink ribbon, it's pleated! 
Love it, and the large pearls!


This next card is a scallop circle easel card.  I tried to use bolder colors.  With the spring images in this set I only wanted to use Soft Subtles.  Here the 2 bunny images stamped together and the Happy Easter sentiment.  The designer paper is new in this mini too.  It's called Twitterpated and is a great mix of feminine and masculine patterns.


This card is a 6" x 6" card.  It  can be cut in half to create 2 scrapbook pages for a
6" square scrapbook.  A family picture mat is inside.  I colored the images with the watercolor pencils and blender pens.  I had to color the little girl 3 times!  I kept trying to add pink to her cheeks and messing up.  So she is cut out and mounted over the first image with Dimensionals. 
There are 3 of the images used on this card.


Now my 3D project.  It's three things for a baby's room.  I had an idea for a baby card made with the Whte Waffle Paper that just didn't turn out.  I had a basket I had made from the Designer Rosette Bigz XL die.  I was able to save parts of the card to create these.  Baby's rooms make me think night lights and I went from there.  This night light was originally a Christmas night light.  It is designed with  a removable shade.  Now don't get all excited, I bought this on clearance years ago and have never seen another like it.  So sorry, you can't run out and buy one.

The 2 baskets are created by gathering the Rosette die cuts into cone shapes and tieing together with Baker's Twine and Vanilla Seam Binding ribbon.  I ties handles on each side of the baskets.  A clear plastic cup can be inserted inside to hold small stuff.  For the night light, the image is stamped on the Waffle Paper with Black Stazon and colored with the Watercolor Crayons.  I wanted the light to shine through both the dsp and the image.

Thanks for hopping along!
