Petals Potpourri

Just love making these Berry Basket cards with the new Berry Basket Die.  The colors I chose were Daffodil Delight and Perfect Plum, but also Elegant Eggplant on the Woodgrain stamp for the basket.  The flowers are from the stamp set Petal Potpourri.  The little "Happy Spring" sign is from the set From the Garden and cut out with the Handpicked Framelit.  I'm so happy that winter seems to be finally over and I saw daffodils in bloom the other day!!

Chick Basket

My demo friend, Carol Barr sent me a swap very similar to this one.  This was so much fun to make using the Berry Basket die and the Petal Potpourri stamp set.  The chick is made with a 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Bird Builder Punch and Boho Blossom Punch.  The "enjoy" is from the Hello You Thinlets. When you pull out the chick, there is a Ghirardelli Square inside. The inside is stamped with "Happy Spring" or "Happy Easter" from the Crazy About You stamp set. The colors are Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise  and Melon Mango.  I plan on making a few more of these today.   So much fun!

Love Is Kindess Basket card

Just love using the new Berry Basket Die, so decided to create a card using it.  I cut a single basket using the Crumb Cake and then cut it in half.  I folded it up on the score line and created a trim for the basket using the Coastal Cabana cardstock.  I used the flowers from  Love is Kindness on a tag that I made using the Ornate Tag Topper Punch and colored them in with markers.  The colors are Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride and Wild Wasabi.  I stamped the flower set again on a scrap of Whisper White and colored in a few more colors to attach on top of the other flowers to give it a dimensional look.  I attached the Coastal Cabana Thick Baker's Twine to the tag.  The "Happy Spring" is from the stamp set Crazy About You.  The background is Daffodil Delight and the Spring Flowers Embossing Folder on a base card of Coastal Cabana.

Watercolor Wash Thanks Card

This is a card I made with  the new SAB stamp set added for March called For Being You.  It can be earned FREE with a purchase of $50 of Stampin' Up! products this month.  I used the watercolor wash technique show in the video below.  The base of my card is Calypso Coral.  I embossed the word "Thanks" with a Versamark ink pad and Whisper White Embossing Powder and then heat set.  Then I used the colors Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, and Crushed Curry with the Aqua Painter to create the watercolor.  The Designer Paper is the background is Best Year Ever that is FREE for buying an additional $50 in Stampin' Products.  I used a Tea Lace Doily.   The buttons are from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack and also comes with ribbon to match which is another SAB Free item.

Berry Baskets

Just had so much fun making these Berry Baskets with the new Berry Basket Bigz Die #137366 that is in the Occasions 2015 Catalog.  They are so easy and fun to make.  The colors I used were Marina Mist, Strawberry Slush and Daffodil Delights and you can see how I made them below in the videos.

Here is my newest Easter Basket made from Daffodil Delight cardstock.  I wanted to make it a two-handled basket and add a flower by using the Spiral Flower Bigz Die using Daffodil Delight and Whisper White cardstock.

Berry Basket and Butterfly Basics

Easter is April 5th this year, so I decided to  create this Easter Berry Basket today.   First, I added a Tea Lace Paper Doily on the one side of my basket.  I added a butterfly with the Butterflies Thinlets using Strawberry Slush cardstock.  Then, I used the Butterfly Basics stamp Whisper White cardstock with Strawberry Slush ink.  I added the Rhinestone Basic Jewels for the butterfly body.  The eggs were purchased at a craft store and I shredded some scraps of Whisper White cardstock for the filler inside my basket.   I probably need to add some chocolate candy to complete my basket.

Berry Basket with Bows and Liner

I love making these little Berry Baskets.  The video below shows you how to make them.  I cut mine out from Marina Mist cardstock and cut out the Marina Mist DSP for the liner.  Then I attached a bow made with the Bow Builder Punch to attach to the sides.  These 4" little baskets will make cute little Easter baskets, May Baskets, Birthday baskets, so many uses.  I plan to make some more tomorrow.

Painted Petals

My friend Justine came over today and helped me design this card.  I had it stamped it with the Painted Petals stamp set.  I just couldn't decide which layers of colors I liked best.  We decided the white layer looked better than the Daffodil Delight.  The base of the card is Strawberry Slush .  The leaves are stamped with Garden Green, and flowers are Strawberry Slush and Daffodil Delight and stamped the "thank you" in Memento Black onto a 2" Whisper White cardstock.  I used the new punch called Ornate Topper and used embossing folder Spring Flowers.  The ribbon is the 1/8" Crushed Curry Taffeta Ribbon.
