Control Freaks: Stampin' Up! Spring and Easter Projects

Freakwelcome

Welcome to the Control Freaks March 2012 Tour (officially starts March 20th). We are thrilled to have you join us today. Our tour is nice and short and features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers sharing projects made with Stampin' Up! products. In fact, you may have just come from fellow freaker, Sandy Mathis' Blog.

Our theme for this month is: Spring into Spring - Projects for spring or Easter.  

First, my inspiration...a napkin. 

Napkin

Inspiration comes from many places for me. Sometimes I'll see a color combo while I'm shopping. Or a cool layout idea from an advertisement in a magazine. I just never know when or where it will hit me.

These napkins caught my eye at our local grocery store.  I instantly fell in love with the color combo.  In addition, the flowers made me think of Stampin' Up!'s Die, Flowers Daisies#2.

Here's the Easter Daisy Card I came up with...

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, easter, flower daisies #2, big shot

Didn't it turn out great?  I'm really happy with it. The colors in the napkin weren't an exact match for Stampin' Up! colors.  But I was able to come up with colors that were close; Pool Party, Melon Mambo, Regal Rose, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Wild Wasabi.  Who would have thought?  I definitely wouldn't have come up with this color combo on my own.  But I like it!

Well, with the napkin...that got me thinking of a table setting, which led to my next project...Framelit Daisy Place Cards.

Oh my gosh - I LOVE how these Framelit Daisy Place Cards turned out.  AND...they are SO EASY!  I'll have a quick video for you in a couple days, so be sure to stop back.

Club Project: Easter Bunny Punch Art & Cello Treat Bag

I think you're really gonna like today's project.  You might not be thinking about Easter yet, but it will be upon us in no time at all (April 8th).  And you can be ready with treats for the kids and co-workers with this adorable little Easter Bunny Punch Art Cello Treat Bag (wow - that's a mouthful!).

How cute is this?!

In fact, this is one of my Stamping Club Projects I'm doing this month (If you're interested in receiving projects in the mail like this one,  I offer Long Distance TO GO Clubs TOO! - Learn more about them HERE). 

The Bunny Treat Bag uses Stampin' Up! small cello bags and several punches listed below.  Plus, see those little textured hearts?  That is from the NEW Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Kind of like a little mini folder, of which you get 3 designs!

Here's a few different views on how to put the bunny together.
