GCA #82 - Here Comes Peter Cottontail!!!


Hello all!! We are experiencing one beautiful, slightly chilly, day here in Michigan! They were forecasting snow/rain mix, but I haven't seen any of that in my area!!

Do you realize that Easter is only 2 weeks away??? Do you have your Easter cards or projects done? Well, if not, here's where this weeks challenge comes to the rescue.

For this week, you need to create any type of project: card, scrapbook page, 3-D item or whatever you can image, which represents Easter.

And while the title of this weeks GCA mentions Peter Cottontail, you DO NOT have to have a rabbit on your creation. Anything Easter themed is good!
How's this for a cute, and quick, goodie bag? I found this idea on SCS in the gallery of Diana Seitz, AKA paperball, and you can find all the details on her blog: Stamping Moon.

Her goodie bag is made from a 3 x 3 mini envelope, and while this is very cute, I decided to change the size just a tad. I used 4 x 6 envelopes and only put the dsp on the front of the envelope.

I am using these as my 3-D swap for a stamping event I am going to this upcoming weekend. And since I only need to make 10, I thought I would expand the size and that way I can put a little more chocolate in them!! I used 1/4 sheet of tissue paper for the insert and then just trimmed the excess off once I had it in the envelope.

It's a little difficult to see in the photo, but the dsp I used is Bella Rose, now retired, and it's the Pink Pirouette damask print. The same print as the Kiwi Kiss dsp, but my camera washed the Pink Pirouette out. Another thing I did different on this bag is the ribbon. On Diana's she punched holes in the sides and tied the ribbon through. Because I used a larger envelope, I used sticky tape on both sides of the ribbon, Kiwi Kiss, and adhered it to the inside of the envelope. A piece of Pink Pirouette gg finishes it off.

The bunny was stamped in Chocolate Chip and Versamark and then clear embossed. Doesn't he look good enough to eat??? The flowers are from the stitched Sweet Pea felt flowers in the current Occasions mini. Not sure if I like the pom-pom on his tail or not.

Upload your creation to either your blog or to an online gallery and post a link to your creation to this blog entry by March 27, 2010 at 12 midnight. I will choose the winner the next day. If you upload your card to SCS, PaperCraft Planet, Stampin' Addicts or Stamp TV, please put GCA82 in your keywords. That way everyone can see all of the wonderful creations at once!

Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenges and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it! And yes, my challenge is open to everyone who visits, even if you live outside the US!

Happy Stamping!!!
