Mom, You Stamped an Egg! - Imaginisce inspiration

Hello blogging friends. I have an Imaginisce Snag 'em stamp project to share with you today. 

On a recent trip to the grocery store I noticed the Easter candy, decorations, and egg dye kits were being displayed and I had a "aha moment". A lightbulb lit up in my head. I wanted to try decorating my eggs with the adorable stamps from the Welcome Spring collection. Stamping on eggs takes a light touch. Press too hard and your egg may crack. But think of the heads that will turn when they see your eggs! Give it a try with your kids too. I bet they would love to stamp on their eggs :) I used all the stamps in the Welcome Spring collection except the owl. I thought the owl was a bit too big for eggs. I also whipped up a couple egg holders using my Welcome Spring papers. These would look great on your Easter buffet table. 

My kids reaction when they saw my eggs. (Yes, I had all my kids home last week on Spring Break!)..."Mom, you stamped an egg!  That's pretty cool!".

Aren't these stamps from the Welcome Spring collection are the cutest, most adorable stamps ever! 

I used a dye based ink on my eggs. It dries fast and will not smudge off. Once the stamp was inked, I used my fingers to press it onto the egg, that way I could curve the stamp to fit the egg.
