more egg hunt!
February 10, 2010
It's day 2 of the official countdown and I have more to share with my new Egg Hunt set which will be available for sale on the 15th at Papertrey Ink.
Before I continue, a public service announcement brought to you by Papertrey Ink:
Welcome to one of the *official* stops on the Papertrey Egg Hunt!
Look closely and you may find
a hidden egg that's one-of-a-kind.
Perhaps there are more than one or maybe even none!
The challenge is yours, enjoy and have fun!
If you are starting out here, make sure that you stop by Nichole's Blog to read about all the details along with the GRAND PRIZE affiliated with this fun contest!

And now on with the regularly scheduled post:
Like I mentioned yesterday, Egg Hunt is a complete creative collection. When I had my stamp set, papers and egg die cut in hand I was inspired to pull coordinating product and create my very own Egg Hunt inspiration station. I was chatting to Mish about putting it together and she is also sharing her version of and Egg Hunt inspiration station on her blog today. It will be fun to see how we each were inspired and the different projects that we each create - this is the next best thing to actually being able to get together and stamp since she is in Kansas and I am in Minnesota!
I pulled coordinating cardstock colors to go with the patterned paper color palette. The colors that you see lined up behind the patterned paper collection are: Spring Moss, Summer Sunrise, Lemon Tart, Lavender Moon, and Plum Pudding.
Next I pulled a sampling of ribbons for each color - not everything as too many choices can be overwhelming when you create so keep it simple - and also the coordinating buttons.
I also had my die cuts at the ready to get started.
Then, I just went to town. I stamped eggs, die cuts eggs and scallop borders, did some sewing both on my machine and hand stitching on buttons until I ended up with a great sampling of embellishments to use on my projects. My cards yesterday used items from my inspiration station embellishments, my projects today do as well, and you will see more throughout the rest of the countdown. Now that I have all of this put together, it is SO easy to put together a bunch of coordinating projects to get ready for the season & holiday.
The whole Papertrey Ink design team has projects to share today made with the Egg Hunt set. Make sure you stop by Nichole's blog to link up to all of the other design team members to see their projects that are sure to get you inspired for your spring and easter project ideas.
My card uses pieces from my inspiration station and then I added a cardstock mat stamped with Background Basics: Tin Type and the frame from Fillable Frames #1.
And then I used the same focal piece of the card as a tag for my little gift box that is wrapped with a piece of the patterned paper and another scallop border piece.
Like I mentioned before, Nichole and the whole Papertrey Ink design team are sharing projects with the Egg Hunt set today. For more peeks check out Dawn, Niki, Alli, and Melissa's blog's for peeks of their new sets and also stop by Kim's blog for a peek of the new templates she has coming out this month.
