Happy Easter with Blossoming Basket

Hello Stampers.  It’s Easter already…time just flies by.  In honor of Sale-A-Bration ending tomorrow (March 31) I’m using the beautiful SAB Free item Blossoming Basket. I’m sure I’ll be using this long after SAB ends…and for years to come. 

 

Don’t you love the Basket Weave Embossing Folder that comes with the Blossoming Basket! When I use it again I’ll leave more of the Basket Weave showing so that the recipient can enjoy the texture more.

 

Of course I used our wonderful Stampin’ Blends to color the basket and flowers. Notice how nicely the light and dark Blends work?  I stamped the image with Crumb Cake and I really like the light outline it gives. I think that a black outline is just too dark for my taste. 

Did you notice the shadow under the white piece? I popped up the whole piece with Foam Adhesive Strips. It really adds to the dimension.

 

Stampin’ Up Products Used:

Stamp Sets – Blossoming Basket (SAB), You’re Inspiring

Ink – Crumb Cake, Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper – Whisper White, So Saffron

Accessories – Basket Weave Embossing Folder (SAB), Foam Adhesive Strips, Stampin’ Blends

 

This is the basic card…I think I might add some bling and/or ribbon to “jazz” it up.  I usually make cards for my classes that are basic and then have some embellishments available for my stamping friends to add to their creations.  Some of the gals changed the direction of the layout from landscape to portrait and it looked great.  Also some cut down the white with the basket so that more of the embossing folder would show. 

Try this card and change it up and be creative. Then send me an email with the photo of your creation and I will definitely post it.

Saved the best photo for last!

Have a wonderful week and Happy Stamping!    Donna 🙂
