Welcome Easter – Background Technique with Acrylic Block

Welcome Easter – Background Technique with Acrylic Block

Hi Everyone! On my team’s Facebook Group yesterday, I did a Facebook Live on 2 background techniques. This is one of them! It it sooo super easy. All you need is your acrylic blocks and ink pads!

Here I used Acrylic Block Size B to stamp 4 different colors. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy! Then if so desired ( and I desired LOL) your can add other images on top of the background blocks. I love this cute bunny from Welcome Easter stamp set.

General Instructions for this technique:

  • Choose your block size – B used in this project
  • Ink the block just like  you would with a stamp
  • Stamp unto card stock.
  • That’s it!

Sweet Cups Bunny Treat Holder for Valentines or Easter

Sweet Cups Bunny Treat Holder for Valentines or Easter


Hi Everyone! I am soooo about these Sweet Cups. They are a really good size treat holder and FUN FUN FUN to decorate. I recently did a Facebook Live for my VIP Group ( It’s free to join and no obligation – click here to join!) where this was the main project. I did some other tips and ideas there too. I’m sure you will see more creations using the Sweet Cups from me in the upcoming weeks!

Special thanks to Susan Campfield for sharing her adorable Panda Sweet Treat! Her creation got my wheels a turnin’!

I love punch art! This merges punch art and dies art to make the images. Below is a picture at a glance of what you will need. From the Layering Ovals Framelits – the die cut sizes are the 2-3/4″, 2-1/2″ & 2-1/4″.

You can choose to spritz the container or not. The video tutorial show spritzing but you can skip it for the white bunnies shown above. The video is a start to finish video. Once you get the first one under your belt, you can really quickly mass produce.

TIP! If mass producing die cut 2 at a time! Use 2 layers of cardstock or designer paper when die cutting.

General Instructions: Option to spritz the container and lid using a Stampin’ Spritzer with rubbing alcohol and a few drops of Flirty Flamingo Classic Ink Refills. Set aside to dry. Punch out and die cut images below. Use 1/2″ Circle Punch, 3/4″ Circle Punch, 1″ Circle Punch and the Dog Builder Punch along with the Layering Oval Framelits. Add bakers twine to the back of the heart and assemble bunny as shown.

Video Tutorial!

The list of products might seem long – but items stampers have in their stash for the most part. If you don’t, and need something, these are basic tools and items you will use time and time again!

Easter Treat Cones using Polka Dot Cellophane Bags

DSCN5916Hi Everyone! I've been hesitant to post this because the Polka Dot Cellophane Bags are on backorder until March 28th. AFTER Easter..bummer! But just in case you did get them early..here's a few ways to fill them for Easter.

  • Goldfish Crackers
  • Easter grass and $1 candy from either Walmart or Dollar Tree
  • Cheese Popcorn – LOL which if you do, fill bottom with grass as the popcorn is too big to get down the bag far enough for my taste!

Other fillers that work great: M&M's (plain fills better than peanuts), jelly beans and any smaller candy.

While Easter treats are this season, I can't wait to use them for drink mix gifts like hot chocolate, cappuccino mixes etc!

I DO HAVE about 3 extra packs. EMAIL ME at deeslater@ymail.com and we'll work out the details!

I also tied the top with Linen Tread then tied a Cucumber Crush Ribbon!
