All Dressed Up Stamps

All Dressed Up

I have chosen to create an Easter themed item for my project today and this is what I came up with.

Isn’t this image gorgeous!!

It’s a lovely Whimsy Stamp from their Wee Stamps Collection called Wee Bunny. I’ve used the digital version on my creation which I imported into my Silhouette Designer Studio and set up inside a label from the Silhouette Store. I printed out my image from my program onto X-Press It Blending card omitting the lines from the label frame. I then coloured my image with my Copic Markers and then put it through my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the first label line. I’ve then put another sheet of cardstock through the Cameo to cut the outer line and the holes. My image has been mounted to this second label layer using Dimensionals. My Easter Basket is also cut on my Silhouette Cameo and is from the Silhouette Store. It fit my image perfectly. My sentiment is a free digital sentiment I found online. I made the size to fit inside my 1 1/4” Circle Punch so I could add a layer using my 1 3/8” Circle Punch.  The lovely paper I have used on my Easter Basket if from Bo Bunny.

Here’s another photo.

This basket is so quick and easy to make and only takes 1 sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock and 1 sheet of paper.

Here’s a closer look at my image.
