You Made my Day

Hello, my stamping friend.
I have a card today to share using Basket Bunch bundle. Even so it is listed as Easter set, it has so much more potential.

Cutting Measurements:
  • Old Olive: 5 ½ x 8 ½ “, 3 ¼ x 3 ¼” 
  • Whisper White CS: 4 x 5 ¼ ”; 3 x 3”; ½ x 3 ¼ “; scrap for stamping leaves and apples 
  • Designer paper: 2 pieces 1 ¼ x 4” 
How Tos:
  1. Stamp smaller egg and leaf image several times in black archival ink on a scrap piece of whisper white paper. Using Watermelon Wonder ink and aqua painter – color the eggs to create apples. Do the same with leafs using Old Olive ink. Die cut with thinlits. Die cut 2 different basket shapes from Tip Tap Taupe.
  2. Stamp a grass in old olive on 3 x 3 piece of whisper white. Adhere to old olive piece. Add apples and leaves to the top. Adhere the basket shape (the one with the holes) on top of solid basket. Adhere basket with dimensionals over the apples. Set aside.
  3. Randomly stamp leaves in old olive in a center part of 4 x 5 ¼ piece of whisper white. Lightly color them with aqua painter and old olive ink. Adhere designer paper to the top and bottom of whisper white piece.
  4. Create a card by scoring Old olive cardstock at 4 ¼. Adhere piece from step 3 to the card front
  5. Adhere piece from step 2 (with basket) to the center of the card with dimensionals 
  6. Stamp sentiment on whisper white strip in Watermelon wonder ink. Adhere to the bottom of the card. Embellish with pearls.
  7. Tie a bow from linen thread and add to the basket with glue dot.
And the best part - framelits are on 50% discount now.

April Blog Hop

Hello my stamping friend and welcome to our April Blog Hop. The theme of this month hop is Mother's Day. I created 2 projects that are slightly non traditional for me. When I think about Mother's Day - roses are always coming in mind, big bouquet of roses. But because I used rose stamp sets many times I decided to use a set that I did not have a chance to play with and that has Mother's Day greeting in it - "Oh So Succulent". At first - I did not need the stamp set, but was super intrigued with framelits and paper flowers it creates. So I bought a bundle, but did not use it until this week. Let me tell you - I wish 2 things: could of tried it sooner and it would not be on retiring list. The only positive thing is that frameilts are on 50% discount! You will need to buy stamp set and fremlits separately to get a best deal.

This is the card I created:
I used Weather Together bundle for umbrella. Outline of flowers were done in Tip Tap Taupe. I found it easier to line them up when stamping outline first.
The box is 3x3 white box from Stampin Up (also on retired list). Love the size of it and how easy it can be decorated. The designer paper was wrapped around clear piece and flowers and moss added to the top.
And the best part is the moss. It is not from a craft store, I pooled it from the tree in my backyard. All our oaks here in Florida are covered in Spanish moss. I finally found some use of it, haha.
Succulents were super easy to make. I cut all flower shapes from Old Olive card stock, sponged them in Sweet Sugarplum, curled with scoring tool and assemble. Sugarplum one - 4 smallest flower shapes, Sahara Sand - 3 smallest ones sponged with old olive ink. You can find plenty of videos on YouTube how to make them. They come together very quickly and look very cool. I also curled thin strips of card stock to add on top.
Hope you like them. Leave me a comment for a chance to win the prize:
Thank you for stopping by.

Basket Banch not Only for Easter

Hello my stamping friend.
What do you think about Basket Bunch bundle? To be honest - I saw it first as an Ester only stamp set/framelits with some cutesy images. But after seeing few samples at last onstage and online I changed my mind (no surprise, it happens all the time, right?). I decided to hold a class around this bundle. We all agreed this bundle is amazing and can be used for many occasions.
Will this card be a great Thank you?
Here is a quick box to make as well:
This one is a little 'Eastery' but this is a time of the year.
Stay tuned for more posts with this bundle.
Happy Stamping!
