Designer Suzanna Lee here today with an Easter project for you.

Using an accordian card die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, I created this fun Easter home decor. Each of the backgrounds is not only a different color but a different cardstock as well. I used some Core Essentials cardstock  and some Core Impressions in various designs. See my supply list for more details.

The oval of each panel is cut using white cardstock and individually decorated using more die cut cardstock and some stamps.

Emboss bits and pieces of the panel for added texture like I did here with the tulip. Then shade it with Gelatos for a hint of ombre color and shading. Scor the outer edge of this panel and sand to frame the letters.

 Embellish each oval shape and make a quick nest out of some twine like I did below:

Tuesday Tip: Cute and Quick Easter Gift

Today’s Tuesday Tip is to use what you got!

Designer Shaunte Wadley has the cutest little Easter Bunny treat for us today. It is a great way to use up some scraps and there is a good possibility that you have all of this already at your finger tips.

So here is a little bit about it from Shaunte herself:

Here is a quick and easy Easter Treat cup using Core’dinations scraps from your stash, and a grocery store cup.
The cup is just a plain white plastic cup.
For the ears, I folded a piece of Pink Core Whitewash in half. I free hand cut the ear, and since the paper was doubled, I had matching ears. I sanded the edges so the pink would come through.
I repeated the same fold and cut technique with a scrap of Pink Spotted Jillian Dot cardstock. I trimmed it slightly smaller to nest inside the Whitewash ear.


For the bunny face, I punched two 1″ circles from Whitewash. One 1/2″ circle from the Spotted.
I trimmed a scrap of white for the teeth, and glued them together as shown.
Add a couple of google eyes, and hot glue all of the elements to your cup.

Easy as can be! Would be great to mass produce- who doesn’t have scraps and plastic cups? Cheap, and pretty darn cute.
