For today's release, I actually have two projects for you!!  They both include older sets carried in the SweetStamps shop, that coordinate perfectly with today's release.
For my first card, I am using the adorable "Cute As a Bunny" set.  There is a girl and a boy version to this stamp, but as a mother of all boys, I had to color the version!  :)
Can you see the background he sits on?  That is the new "Basket Weave" stencil which comes in two different sizes!!!  I love dry embossing with the stencils.. Can you tell?   The sentiment is one of those older stamps carried in the SweetStamps collection, that pair perfectly with this set.
For my second card, I think I had way too much fun with this one!!
I embossed the new Easter egg Piccolo's with "Aged Pink" Enamel Powder.  I was going to go for a more shabby chic look, but decides to keep things a little simpler since these eggs are so pretty!!
I then dug up another older set "Jackie's Basket and Bow Duo" and brought this baby to life!!
I stamp the basket twice on two different sheets of what card stock.  I die cut the frame from one sheet and colored the bottom portion of the basket on the other.   Then I fussy cut the bottom portion out and embossed the edges.  I did this because I knew that I was going to be layering it and it would sort of curve; giving the basket more dimension.

Thanks for stopping by!  Your next stop in the hop is Denise's  blog!  
We hope you are inspired all along the way!
