Blossoming Basket Meets Stampin' Blends

Blossoming Basket Bundle

Time is running out for this year's Sale-A-Bration!

Remember, for every $50 spent, you'll earn a free item out of the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.

It's a great time to stock up on stamping supplies!

Sale-A-Bration ends March 31, so don't miss out.

Stampin' Up! released their second offering of Sale-a-Bration items in February.

One of the items available was the Blossoming Basket Bundle which includes the Blossoming Basket stamp set and coordinating Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

This Bundle is available with a $100 purchase.

The Basket Weave embossing folder will carryover to the new Annual Catalog to be released in June, but the Blossoming Basket stamp set will not.

The Blossoming Basket stamp set brings a smile and is a great stamp to using the alcohol-based Stampin' Blends to color it in.

Here's how:

  1. Stamp the basket image on a piece of Shimmery White card stock using Archival Black ink.
  2.  Color the image using Stampin' Blends.  I used the light and dark Daffodil Delight Blends for the flowers and the dark Calypso Coral Blend for the flower centers.  I used the light and dark Old Olive Blends for the leaves, and the light and dark Crumb Cake Blends for the basket.
  3. Stamp the tag image on the card front using Archival Black ink.  Stamp it again on a scrap piece of Shimmery White card stock and cut out using a pair of scissors.  Color in the hearts using the dark Calypso Coral Stampin' Blend.  Attach it to the stamped image on the card front using a Mini Dimensional to pop it up. Attach to a Crumb Cake mat.
  4. Run a piece of Wild Wasabi card stock through the Big Shot and Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
  5. Attach to Calypso Coral card base. Attach stamped basket to front of card using Mini Dimensionals to pop it up.
  6. Stamp the greeting below the basket using Archival Black ink.
  7. Tie a piece of ribbon into a bow and attach to the basket handle using a Glue Dot.  I used my very last piece of retired Calypso Coral seam binding

I really like the texture the Basket Weave Embossing Folder provides!
