Blog Hop, Stampin Up cards

Art with Heart Team Blog Hop

Good Morning everybody,
Welcome to the Art With Heart Team Blog Hop! Who are the Art with Heart team? Lead by Claire Daly there are over 80 demonstrators across Australia … if you want to become part of this great team just email me for more details. We have a great team forum, Business Building Club and heaps of support from like minded demonstrators.

This will be a monthly event happening on the last day of every month. You may have just come from
Kim Meiklejohn’s blog, but if you are starting here, don’t worry … you can make the complete journey just by following the links at the end of each post. There are 14 stops along the way and we hope you will visit each one to see the wonderful creations we have to show you! If you leave a comment on each and every blog and then email Nikki at, your name will be put into the hat to win some beautiful blog candy. There is a deadline of 72 hours to leave your comments and only non SU demos are eligible to win the candy – although we’d love all visitors to leave some comments please.

  This is our second tour. We decided upon the theme of Easter. At the end of each post there will be a link to take you to the next stop on the tour. It would be fantastic if you could leave a comment on each blog! So grab a cuppa, and set off on what we are hoping will be an inspirational journey!

 Here is my project for the blog hop. I have made a card and a mini milk carton filled with chocolate eggs.

Some closeup of the card. I had just the easter wishes stamps from Occassional Greetings stamp set which I have used as background for both the card and the milk carton. Stamp-a-magic was used extensively to create the background.

I chose the colors Purple, White and Green for this project because easter color purple is indicative of royalty. It is said that the color purple brings wealth. The color green brings ray of hope. White color signifies purity and grace.
Here is the closeup of the mini milk carton. Just google for the template and print it directly on the cardstock, then cut, score and assemble the milk carton. Simple and easy. I used circle punch and punched a circle on one side of the milk carton and glued a piece of acetate inside and made a window on the milk carton.
Here is the picture of the package again.
Recipe to make this project involves
CS: Kraft, Confetti White, Elegant Eggplant
Inks: Old Olive,Perfect Plum
Stamp sets: Occassional Greetings, Bitty Birthday and Seeing Spots
 Accessories: 5/8′ grossgrain Old Olive ribbon, Button Bouquet, Hemp twine, Circle punch, Acetate sheet, Eyelet Border punch  Rhinestones from Kaisercraft and Cadbury easter eggs (Yum!)

Did you enjoy reading and looking at my project? Hope it gave you some idea to make your project. Well, thats it from me. You next stop is to Kathryn’s blog. She has a beautiful easter project too. Just make sure you leave a comment on each blog and email Nikki to win the blog candy.

Have a great day hopping from one blog to another and hope you get some great ideas and inspirations from all the fabulous projects. Make sure you leave a comments for going into the draw to win a blog candy.

  1. I love the colours you used and you card is stunning. The eggs on the card look amazing with the flowers and the rhinestones. I also love the milk carton. I have seen the milk carton before but did not think about using it for easter eggs. Thank you for the great ideas. I also think i forgot to mention that you did a great job for Just Add Ink Challenge #5. Glad to see that it got a highlight. 🙂


  2. I love the thought that you put in to the colour scheme and appreciate all the work that it took with that stamp-a-majig! I dont have any dsp paper, so I'm usually stamping my own paper to get a background and I loved your ideas. Thanks for sharing and great work on the other challenge too!


  3. Oh Gayatri, what can I say? Beautiful creations from you as always. Love your different boxes!! And absolutely love your idea of flowers and little sparklies on the easter eggs! Might have to CASE that if you don't mind! Beautiful! :o)


  4. Love this Gayatri – great use of generic stamps for easter to make the egg pattern. Wish you girls would stop showing me all that yummy chocolate though!!!
