Visit EACH of the team members blogs and leave a comment. ONE lucky person from each blog will WIN the Lace Egg the member used in her post. Also be sure to leave a comment on the team blog for a chance to WIN the Nesting Egg dies. Winners will be announced on the 19th along with this week's challenge winner. Good luck and have fun hopping!!

My Lace Egg is  NUMBER ONE!!!

Beginning my post is a card featuring several of the Easter Dies!!

 This card is a 5" x 7" in size. The main layer is embossed with Timeless Tulips and distressed it with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink Concord Grape.  When you ink Cheery Lynn's Plates, you gently place the pad down and lightly move it down the plate.  When you run it thru your machine you will have inked the embossed areas.  This is a very cool technique!!
These are the Easter Dies for the remainder of the card:
I used the fallouts from the border to decorate one of the nesting eggs and the second features my LACE EGG!! This is the one you could win when you leave a comment!! On the eggs I embellished it with a few gems from my stash.  The grass in the basket was die cut from Grass Border out of Bazzil Bling paper.  The greeting is from Sweet Stamps.

I have four more projects featuring my LACE EGG ONE.  I am hoping you will see the versatility of the Lace Eggs and Nesting Eggs..

This is a candle holder created with tissue paper, decoupage, gems, gold mirror card, ribbon  LACE EGG ONE and a votive holder.  I cut the tissue paper to fit the votive holder; applied decoupage to the outside of the holder and gently placed the tissue paper around. LACE EGG ONE was die cut three times from the Mirror Gold paper.  Applying a Spray Adhesive onto the back each lace egg  and it was adhered to the votive glass.  The lovely ribbon from my stash was applied to the top and bottom with Ultimate Glue.  Then for the final touch a few gems.

Here it is with candlelight:
I think it lets off a pretty glow!!!  This would make a great gift at a Bridal or Baby Shower.

This is an Easter Pin!!!



I die cut two of the smallest Nesting Eggs from cardstock.  Using Decoupage again I glued the two eggs together.  Then I die cut Lace Egg One and using Decoupage I glued it to the front of my soon to be pin.  Each side of the Pin has two layers of Decoupage.  The bunny is from the Nesting Eggs and he was added with the second coat of Decoupage. The pin was glued to the back. A bow with ribbon from my stash completed the pin.  Very simple and a cute idea for Easter.

The next two are Magnets made with the same technique as the pin!!

Each magnet have pearls created with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen. The purple one I dressed up a bit with a bow.  Again these are very easy to create!!

The next project is a hanging egg to decorate your Easter Tree!!

I die cut two of Nesting Eggs, the fourth in size. The difference is the Lace Light Deco Border which was attached to the inside of the back egg before fastening the two eggs together.  The front egg I embossed with the Eccentric Circles but I couldn't get it to photograph well.  Then I applied two coats of Decoupage. Before the last coat I fastened the Bunny from the Easter Basket 2 to the front. I gave him a little eye from a pearl, punched a hole for the hanger and a bow and it was finished.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects showing the versatility of the Lace Eggs.   This is the egg you can win from your comment on my blog:

I like the candle holder! I just made a similar idea for a gift,but I didn't try the spray adhesive. That sounds easier and neater. I will have to give it a try. I also like the idea of the tissue pepar and decoupage.

Becky said...

Gorgeous creations! I have the Lace Egg Four and love it...this one is equally as gorgeous!

Lynda said...

Bonnie your easter basket is so cute!I love the colours you used.
