Hello Crafty Friends!!

I had SO MUCH FUN Creating with these NEW Products!! I personally LOVE to try and think outside of the box when it comes to Dies that I want to purchase as I feel like I get MORE for my buck if I can use them in different ways for LOTS of different Projects!! So this first Project REALLY puts that idea to the Test, and I hope you LOVE the Ideas I have to share today!! Let's get started!!
For my First Project I've created a SWEET Carrot Pocket!! PERFECT for filling with a Sweet Treat, a Gift Card, or wait til tomorrow to see what I filled mine with!! SQUEAL!! I CAN'T wait to show you how CUTE it is!!
I used the NEW Embroidered Egg Details II Die to Stitch the Design onto the Basic Egg Die (previously released)!! I used the Clementine Felt as the Base for the Carrot and then Die Cut the Tops of the Carrots from some the Soft Jade Felt and the Arugula Felt for the Centers for some Shading using some Dies that will be showcased tomorrow in another Set!!
I added some Sequins and Bead Highlights to the center of the Tops and some Beads to the Center of the Leaf Stitched Design on the Carrot and LOVE how much details it adds, but this step is definatly NOT required!! It would be just as CUTE without it, its totally your preference as to how much detail you want to add!! Here you can see how I added 2 pieces together, folding down part of the piece and Stitching on the backside of the part that I folded down to get the continued design of the Stitched Detail!! I just ADORE how it turned out and who wouldn't want to receive a Gift inside of this SWEET Carrot Pocket!!??
I also finished off the back of the Pocket using the Conversation Hearts Message Dies "LOVE YOU" and I feel like this added touch just finishes off the SWEET Carrot Pocket!! I added some Green Felt Hearts to the center of the "O" for a touch of Sweetness!! (That Die is also being showcased tomorrow as part of another Set!!
For my Second Project today I'm showcasing the NEW Banded Egg Details Die and just had to create a Shaker Element for a Card!! If you follow me than you KNOW Shaker Cards are one of my FAVORITES to make and this Sweet Banded Egg Details Die makes it so EASY to create them for a Card!!
I Die Cut several of the Frame Images from Cardstock in order to create my Shaker Frame!! Then I also Die Cut the op Layers from Patterned Paper to get that Decorated Easter Egg Design!! I Die Cut an Acetate piece as the Window!! I Started by adding the Stitched Tulip Design on the Base of the Egg!! Then I adhered the Frame tacking it in place with some Adhesive!! I added the Shaker Elements (Both from Trinity Stamps and Picket Fence) Then added the Top and Stitched the Design together!!
I Inked the Card Panel with some Spun Sugar Distress Ink and then adhered the Shaker Element using Double Sided Adhesive!! I added some Trinity Stamps Fairy Rock Rhinestones for some added Sparkle and then Stamped and Embossed the "Happy Easter" Sentiment also from Trinity Stamps!! (available tomorrow) I adhered it to the Shaker Window then added the Card Panel to a Scalloped Frame Die Cut from Patterned Paper using the NND Frames & Flags Die Set and adhered the Card Panel to an A2 White Cardstock Cardbase!! I ADORE how it turned out and fell like these would be PERFECT to send to anyone SPECIAL on your Easter list this Year!!
