Share Sunday Easter Baskets

The temperatures are beginning to feel like early spring and Easter is just over a month away. Spring always reveals new smells, baby birds and animals and everything blooms anew after the winter cold. This spring finds me moving in some new and exciting paper crafting directions. I am venturing in new creative directions and very excited to announce that I am going to be showcasing Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps and projects as a design team member. This first week will feature tutorials for making all of these lovely easy Easter baskets. The baskets were fun and easy to make! Look for tutorials for these baskets starting on Monday.

Established in 2002, Rubber Stamp Tapestry™ is a family owned and operated business located in the foothills of the Uwharrie Mountains in central North Carolina. Each peg stamp is handcrafted in their shop with superior materials manufactured, sourced, assembled and packaged in the United States. Quality is paramount to them, together with protecting our earth’s most valuable resources. They use real red rubber & sustainable wood.
