In my last post I mentioned I’d be back today to share an Easter Basket I’d made using something being released in the Autumn/Winter mini on 1st April. Well I do have that to share but first I’m going to show you what I did this afternoon.
Yep. I got all the Easter Baskets made for my daughters friends. I did put a limit on 3 each so that’s a total of 12 baskets all up. I decided not to go with the Punch Bunny’s as they would have taken forever and I can use my time on other creations instead so I’ll have more to share with you all.
I’ve kept with the Tea Party DSP theme I seem to be using on my Easter Baskets. I just love the colours and think it’s the most appropriate for Easter in the DSP we have available.
I’ve embellished them with the ‘for you on Easter’ stamp from the Eggcoutrements set which is only available till 31st March. This stamp is so quick to use as it fits the Designer Label punch.
Stamp set: Eggcoutrement
Card: Almost Amethyst, So Saffron, Pretty In Pink, Certainly Celery, Tea Party DSP
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Almost Amethyst
Accessories: Designer Label Punch, Pretty in Pink brads (Soft Subtles), So Saffron brads (Rich Regals), Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Now to show my other Easter Basket.
As you probably know by now Stampin’ Up! will be releasing the Big Shot for sale in Australia & New Zealand in the Autumn/Winter Mini on 1st April. One of the dies that will be available is the Scallop Envelope die. This die is exclusive to Stampin’ Up! so you can only order it through a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator like me and the many others in Australia & New Zealand of course. Obviously this die can be used to make ‘envelopes’ but it is rather small so wanted to find what other uses it would have so I went blog surfing and came across Mary Ellen Scott’s blog with this wonderful project. I’ve CASED it and made mine into an Easter Basket.
So what do you think?? Isn’t it great and what a wonderful use for the Scallop Envelope die. I’ve used 6 Scallop Envelopes to make this basket and there are other variations out their using just 4.
Stamp set: Eggcoutrements
Card: So Saffron, Tea Party DSP
Inks: Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, Pretty In Pink Taffeta ribbon
Till next time……
