Hello Friends, How are you? I am missing “seeing” you all everyday 🙁 that’s the part I miss most when the 30 day coloring challenge is over.
I am back today to celebrate Simon Says Stamp with their new and exciting “Spring Plush” release blog hop! This release also has a stamp set that was a collaboration with Neat & Tangled PLUS lots of Plush dies, beautiful felt and everything to make your own plush delights like thread, needles and felt glue!
I have a video today to show you how I created these vellum carrots stuffed with jelly beans. They will be a sweet treat to rip open and for the candies to spill out for someone special. A mini piñata perhaps.

Sewing is something I have always really enjoyed doing so I was super excited for Simon Says Stamp’s new collection. Creating the carrots I used this heavy weight vellum. Fun foam was used on the tops of the carrots with vellum on top of the fun foam to give it more structure.
Honestly I had so much fun I wanted to make some sugar rush flowers. Break open if you are need of a sweet treat. These flowers would be great on a pillow, baby shirt, guest towel, tote bag or to make a sachet. I can go on and on lol. I was lucky to pick up this pastel vellum at Simon a while ago.
Fill a glass jar with some jelly beans and you have a fun centerpiece for Easter or a special occasion.
I promise once you start you can’t stop. A pocket was made on the large egg to hold the sweet lil bunny. I used the Easter basket strap on the egg to hold the carrot. I stuffed the bunny with batting, the carrot with bubble wrap and the large egg with cotton. When my dog rips apart his stuffed toys I will be saving the stuffing next time!
