Basket For You

Dear Crafters,

Tell me, who doesn’t love flowers? said no one ever!

Today’s card uses the Hostess Set, Basket For You. I have to admit, I didn’t really look twice at this set until I saw a card by one of my downline, Kimberly, who made a stunning card with this set.

I started by embossing the Flirty Flamingo card with the Petal Burst Textured Impression Embossing folder. Next I stamped the basket image and coloured it with the new 2016-2018 Stampin’ Write Markers and the basket was watercoloured using the Aquapainter.

I used the oval framelits for the main image (and paper pierced the edge) and deco label framelits to die cut the Peach behind it. These were adhered with dimensionals. The sentiment was cut out with paper snips!

I even stamped a small flower on the inside of the card and on the envelope (which I forgot to put in the photo!) oops.

Easter Inspiration Blog Hop

Dear Crafters,

AWHT Logo-001

Today I bring you another AWHT blog hop with some of the awesome ladies in the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! Team. Today our focus is on Easter!

If you place an order with me during Sale-a-bration, you can choose a free item with every $90 you spend in one transaction. There are lots of fabulous free items to choose from (ask me for a brochure and an Occasions Catalogue) and the promotion will end on 31st March.

When you join during Sale-a-bration, you get to choose whatever you like from our catalogues, but pay just $169 for $235 worth of product (that’s a huge discount!) but also you get to choose between two free product options. It’s quick and easy to join online too. Ask me how!

You have come to my blog from Tamie Holt.

Now let’s get into showing you what you can make with the Indescribable Gift Stamp Set from the Occasions catalogue.

For my projects, I have used the Indescribable Gift Stamp Set, and the In Colours Designer Series Paper Stack. 

Indescribable Gift

I have used Blackberry Bliss as my card base. I die cut the largest of the Deco Labels Framelits from the front of the card.

I used a piece of Vellum and stamped the Indescribable Gift image with Stazon Black ink and let it dry, before colouring with the In Colours Stampin’ Write markers (Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow & Baked Brown Sugar).

Indescribable Gift

The next step, I used my Stampin’ Piercing Mat and the Simply Scored Stylus to gently go around the flower petals on the coloured-in side. When you turn the image over, you can see the white shining through where the stylus has touched the vellum.

I glued the vellum to the inside of the card and put a piece of DSP (with the same size die cut) over it to cover the crooked edges and make the inside more attractive!

Indescribable Gift

I finished off with a coordinating ribbon bow and the sentiment from the same stamp set which I die cut with the Bitty Banners Framelits.

Indescribable Gift

I also made some cute little baskets for my girls to give to their friends for Easter from the same coordinating Designer Series Paper! How cute are they?!!!

These are only small and I cut some small strips of cellophane to put inside before adding 3 little solid eggs. I think the girls are going to love giving these to their closest friends.
