...Day 4 Egg Tree Table Decoration

Ed - don't forget to pop over to see Bonnie and Jennifer today!!

Welcome to Day 4 of the samples before the big release tomorrow!!! I will be launching 4 NEW clear photopolmer stamp sets tomorrow! pop back to see what they look like! There will be a blog-hop organised by my lovely Design Team ladies!!!! I can't wait to see what they've made!

Today's project is a wee Easter egg tree I made with the wee egg stamps from Spring Baskets, I thought this would make a fab wee project to do with the kids but was enjoying it so much I made it all myself!!! I think it will make a nice centrepiece for the table, we always have a very casual Easter Sunday dinner but you could make this more formal by picking a rich colour scheme such as green and purple or co-ordinating it with your table linen.

I wanted to show you that included in the set are tiny wee stamps that are intended for you to use to decorate your eggs with - you can do dotty and spotty eggs, there are tiny wee stars, there are mini bees and a mini butterfly and you can use the plain egg stamp to make yourself a mask and stamp yourself some patterned eggs using background stamps - I made a little purple Victorian egg using the Victorian circle stamp from yesterday, see the bottom pic!

The base is made from the upturned lid of a cardboard tube, air dry modelling clay can be used to hold the twig in place once you have punched a hole through the centre of the lid, pinking shears make a quick grass border and a wee touch of ribbon finishes it off.

Hope it tickles!!

I will be back tomorrow with the release post at around 7pm my time, there might be a sample before then but I am spending this evening getting the store ready so it might be tomorrow morning, we'll see.

Hope to see you tomorrow, call back and bring a friend, there will be prizes and loads of inspiration from the blog hop!!!
