Sugar Egg Viewmaster Card

Good morning!  Welcome to The Thinkin'  Spot!  If you dropped by for The Reason For The Season Blog Hop, please click HERE.  I hope this fine Friday is treatin' ya well, and that you're looking forward to a wonderful weekend.  I have a fun and interactive card to share with you today that I made using the newly released Cottage Cutz Sugar Egg Die from The Scrapping Cottage, which includes three stamps.  Do any of you remember getting these sugar eggs in your Easter basket when you were a child?  I sure do, and I wasn't even sure if they made them anymore, but I Googled it, and, YES!!  They do still make sugar eggs.  Now you can make your own (the easy way) for all your Easter cards and scrapbook pages.  I thought that since there were three images to choose from to go inside the egg, it would be a good idea to make this into a Viewmaster card, and here's the result.  Just by spinning the exposed wheel on the right side of the card, you can change the scene inside the egg.  Pretty cute, huh?  All images were colored with Copics.
 Here's the sheep scene.
 The adorable bunny.
And the sweet as can be chick.

I hope you like and are inspired by my creation.  There are so many fun things you could do with this die and stamp set to create very special works of art.  As always, I wish you blessed and beautiful day, and of course some happy stamping!!!

This is fabulous Lorie! I used to love those sugar eggs when i was a kid although I never ate them - just kept them on my dresser to look at - they were like a little world inside :) This is definitely a fun stamp set. Thanks for sharing :)
