Decorating an Egg


I don't mean in the usual way!  Sharon's No Time to Stamp challenge today was to use an egg in your creation!  I have my stamp club girls meeting tonight, so I wanted to do something QUICK this morning!  I bought these Dollar Store eggs last year:


They sit on my piano with my little vintage bunny and my mom's Easter tree.  I thought they could use a little  "dressing up", so used some of my little clear Easter stamps (thanks again, Georgette!) and some Michael's ribbon and made some very simple decorations for them:


It's a dreary day and it was hard to get the lighting quite right--the colors look a little washed out, so here is a photo from my desk:


The ribbons are attached with a mini glue dot and the images themselves with a dimensional.  Very easily removed to change for next year!  TFL and have a great day!

  • Stamps:  Studio G Easter stamps
  • Paper:  WW, Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst
  • Ink:  Palette Noir, Versachalk
  • Acc:  Markers, Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Circle Punch, ribbon from Michaels, Dimensionals, mini glue dots 


  1. Just GORGEOUS LeAnne!! That ribbon is so YUMMY looking, and you are making me drool over the scallop oval punches again... :) So sweet and TFS!! Smiles, Michelle :)

  2. So cute! I didn't even pull out my Easter decorations this year! I am so far behind it's not even funny!

  3. Way to think out side of the card! Great decorations.

  4. You dressed those eggs up so cute! Love your little cat pic too! They seem to find the funniest spots to take a nap or hang out in!

  5. Leanne, they're beautiful! Wish I had seen yours before I did mine...would have added ribbon and little stamps! You give me so many cool ideas!


  6. How creative! I just love the ribbons on your eggs!

  7. These are so wonderful! Very cute. Love the ribbons! ~chris

  8. These are adorable LeAnne! That ribbon is gorgeous! I'm going to have to head out to Mike's tomorrow to hunt for some! Thanks for sharing your sweet creations with us! :D

  9. Oh, what darling decorations these make!! The eggs were gorgeous before your wonderful touches, and even more lovely after!!! What a great idea for a quick project for Easter -- love it! So glad you could play -- thanks!!!
