Any egg-scuse for Chocolate

If you read Craft Stamper, you may already have spotted that our advertisement this month features a new set of stamps called Baroque Eggs.

 
There are some eggsquisite designs on this plate and some eggcellent phrases - eggsactly what you need for Easter.  OK, ok, I'll stop with the eggstraordinarily bad eggy references now ...

I find myself very drawn to imagery of eggs, both natural and decorated.
 
I love the huge variations in colour that you find in nature.  

 

or the lavish fantasies of the Fabergé eggs - very baroque


and not forgetting a little chocolate of course!


Well you can indulge in as much Chocolate as you like this Easter - Chocolate Baroque Eggs have absolutely no calories whatsoever!  Oh, if only all chocolate was the same ...

Here are a few cards I've made with these scrummy new stamps - I'll post more details of how I made these over on my blog.






I seem to have been in a yellow and aqua kind of mood - it's a nice fresh spring palette don't you think?

Before I go, I suggest you keep a close eye on Miranda's blog - she may have a little surprise for her followers coming up soon.

We have more new stamps coming out this week too

  7. Those stamps are something else - love the tassels & the flower is a real stunner. Super selection of different card shapes & formats & the colours are superbly striking - just like the Faberge eggs were. Love the photo of the real eggs & the different colouration nature demonstrates.
