March - NC Demo Blog Hop

This month our theme is spring and my team mate Karen Patterson and I just had a Spring/Easter stamp camp today and here are some of our projects.  Everyone loved what we came up with.  I could not do this without Karen's help. There is a lot of work that goes into a stamp camp and we work well together. Plus she is an excellent cook.  :)

 This is one of our projects using the egg cartons from Stampin UP! They are originally white and I used rubbing alcohol with 5 drops of Tempting Turquoise ink refill in a spray bottle and sprayed them. I love the soft aqua (my favorite color) I got the tag idea from Pinterest and everyone loved it.

We made two Easter cards!  This one reminded me of when I was growing up we always got a new Easter dress and I just thought this fun set "Beautiful You" was perfect for an Easter outfit.

This was from the "Easter Messages" set and we showed how to use the watercolor technique using  ink pads with the aqua painters and on another project we used the watercolor pencils.  They loved that they learned two ways to get the watercolor look.

Who doesn't like the Hey Chick set from the Sale a bration  FREE set.  That has been my most popular set chosen this year and you have just 5 more days to get it. Then you it will never be sold again. Check out the Sale bration catalog to view other FREE products.

This darling chicken idea came from a fellow demonstrator Candy Michael. I love how it turned out.    Thanks Candy.

The mama chicken holds two 3x3 cards inside under her wing.  Sweet.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to go to the next blog and see what fun things the other NC Demos have for you.
