Beary Special Easter - SNSDC48

It seems like forever since I've posted.  Thanks for all the kind comments, get-well wishes, and most of all, for your prayers.  I am feeling a lot better and am almost back to full-strength.  The Lord is so good.

This week's challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog is to make an Easter card or project.  I chose to make some gifts for our daughter and some of her friends.

Due to some health issues, our daughter hasn't found a candy that agrees with her.  Since I couldn't send her the normal Easter treats, she said, "If you could find some dates, Mom, that would be awesome."  After a little searching, I found a store that carried them (apparently some stores consider them a seasonal item).

I wanted to cover up the label so I used the Easter Rhubarb Digital Stamp Set to make a dressed up label.  I used Spellbinders Label 4 (small and large), and some pretty papers to set off Rhubarb and the sentiment. Scor-tape works wonders when applying a flat label to a rounded object. 

Rhubarb is colored with Copics.  It's hard to see but all the eggs are colored with various glitter pens.

To package it up, I put a patterned paper circle on the lid, put it in a plastic treat bag and finished off the top with baker's twine and a tag.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper:  Jillibean Soup, MME
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (Rhubarb's Easter)
Tools/Embellishments:  Spellbinders Labels Four (small and large), baker's twine (The Twinery), copics, Sakura Gelly Roll Pens, Scor-Tape, Cuttlebug,  SU tag punch, CM Fine Tip Journal Pen (black)

I usually send some treats for our daughter's roommates and friends.  I decided to make some sour cream containers and fill them with jelly beans.  {You can find a tutorial for making them on SCS here: Sour Cream Container.  You can see some other sour cream containers I've made in the posts here and here.}  Once again, my paper started out at 4" x 6" and I used my scor-buddy instead of a crimper for the ends.

Patterned Paper:  MME 
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy (Easter Blessings Digital Stamp Set)
Tools/Embellishments: Spellbinders Circles (large & small), baker's twine (The Twinery), Scor-buddy

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific, AC Moore

Patterned Paper:  SEI
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy (Easter Blessings Digital Stamp Set)
Tools/Embellishments: Spellbinders Circles & Lacey Circles, baker's twine (The Twinery), Scor-buddy

I used two different papers:  a plaid for our daughter's boyfriend and another guy friend that we've "adopted" as a nephew and a floral for the girls.  I used one of the sentiments from the Easter Blessings Digital Stamp Set on the tags and attached the tags with more baker's twine.

I've already heard from our daughter that they are a hit.  :)

Come play along with us this week.  Remember you must use a digi stamp.  While it doesn't have to be a Sweet 'n Sassy digi, Korin sure has a lot of fantastic ones in the store. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
