Easter Basket

I do not normally post on the weekends.  But I had a cute idea that was appropriate to share for a little Easter project.  I had the idea to use the Delightful Tag Topper Punch to make a little basket to hold 3 X 3 cards and envelopes.  After I made it, I thought it would make an adorable Easter Basket.  I did a video and hopefully you could make some of these for your little ones.

If you get my blog posts through an email, you may need to open it into a web browser to see the video.  I haven’t got all of the kinks out of the process yet.  They say practice makes perfect…..I sure hope so!!

I decorated the basket with the Welcome Easter little chick stamp.  I stamped it on a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock and die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The chick is stamped a little above half way on the die cut.  I used the design of the die , where you can see the chick’s top knot, as a line.  I scored across there and then secured it to the bottom of the basket and to the side.  You could also simply cut off that section and adhere the piece flush with the bottom of the basket.

The chick is stamped in Gray Granite Ink and colored using the Stampin’ Blends.  The yellow is both of the Daffodil Delight Blends.  The feet and beak are colored with the Light Mango Melody Blend.  I went around the chick with the Light Pool Party Blend.

The DSP is from the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper and is one of my famous “back side” of the paper.  I have a tip in constructing the basket.  Put the DSP on while the box is laying flat.  I messed up in the video and forgot to do that!!  Of course I would make a mistake 🙂

Here is a picture of the 3X3 holder that I made originally

I hope you can use this idea to spread some extra cheer this Easter.  It will be different for all of us.  Take care!!

Easter Fun Fold

Today is the last day of Sale-A-Bration.  I am sad to see these great products, that we can earn FREE, going away.  Double check your wish lists and see if you need just one more order today!

I have a cute Easter Fun Fold to share today. I also have my first ever Video!!!!!  I have said several times in my posts that I would do a video for some cards and I never had.  Well, now I have.  I hope you will let me know what you think.  I still need to get some lighting so I do not have the shadows.  I know I am my worst critic, but please share your thoughts.

The Easter Fun Fold is using the Welcome Easter stamp set and SAB Small Blooms punch as well as the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper.

Here is the video

 

This is the same basic card as I shared HERE.

 

Measurements:

  • Base card is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored at 2 1/4 and 6 1/4  (It ends up as 5 1/2 X 4 instead of 4 1/4)
  • NOTE:  The two “flaps” are the same measurements, it does not matter which you choose as the top.
  • Front flap bases are 5 1/4 X 2 ( you need 2)
  • Front DSP is 5 X 1 3/4 ( you need 2)
  • Inside card is 3 1/2 X 4 3/4
  • When securing bottom flap to hold inside card, lay the card in place before peeling off the Tear & Tape to secure the flap.  This ensures you have room to easily slide the card in and out.  If you are adding a gift card, lay it down there as well prior to securing.

 

Thank you for stopping in today.  If you have any questions, please let me know.  I would be happy to assist you.

March InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. Hop, hop! This month’s projects celebrate Easter, so prepare yourself for a variety of gorgeous, Easter-themed projects. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I have once again matched the color of the Hop Banner, without knowing ahead of time what it is.  Hopefully that is a good sign for my projects I have to share.  I rarely do two projects, but I have broken that today.

First here is my card for the Easter theme.

 

Cross of Hope, Welcome Easter, Stampin' Up!, Jackie Beers

 

I paired the Cross of Hope Dies, from the Annual Catalog, with the Welcome Easter stamp set .  I really love that particular cross from the dies.  Those dies are definitely a keeper.  My color choices for the card along with the bunny and lamb, come from childhood memories.  My Mom loved any shade of purple. So all of my Easter dresses growing up, at least while I was younger, were shades of purple.  I knew that had to be the base of my Easter card.

My second project is a little variation of a recent project from The Paper Pixie.   Julie’s Easter Mini Gift Bag, you can see her post HERE, was my idea for an Easter basket.  The only problem was I didn’t have candy that fit that size.  However, I found something that fit perfectly without shortening the size of the basket, which is now a bag.

 

 

Can you tell what is inside?  Yes, it is a Bath & Body Hand Sanitizer.  I know they cannot be found right now.  But as a crafter, I had several in my craft room for projects.  Now you know that they fit perfectly inside this bag.

I used the Coastal Weave embossing folder and the card stock measurements Julie gives fit perfectly inside the embossing folder.  The handle I is the Braided Linen Trim.  I have included in my supply list the items used for both projects.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Ann Murray at Murray Stamps Ink. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

A Good Day

I am mixing two of my most favorite stamp sets today.  One is A Good Day stamp set.  It is so versatile, especially when you need a small sentiment or circle.  I really am sad to see it on the retiring list.  The second is Wishing You Well.  It is a great distinctive stamp set.  The bow is probably my favorite.  So to combine the two I made an Easter wreath.

 

Stampin' Up!, A Good Day, Wishing You Well, Touches of Texture, Jackie Beers

A Good Day, 145873

This little bunny has been a favorite from day one.  I think he is just adorable, and the perfect size for so many things.  I was surprised when I had the wreath idea that he fits perfectly!

The background splatter is from Touches Of Texture stamp set.  I stamped under the wreath with Mint Macaron and then above and below is Mint Macaron stamped off once.  This is another set that will be missed.  I will be looking for a new favorite background splatter!

To finish off the card I went around the outside of the wreath circle with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker.  It is a great way to differentiate the white when layering a white piece onto white.  I thought it needed a bit more though.  So I added the Copper Thread under the wreath.

Thank you for visiting today.  I am a bit late on today’s post, but life happens.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.

Be sure to check the retiring products list.  Some may already be selling out. Usually the retiring In-Colors go first!  I also have a host code for the  month listed below the Last Chance sticker.  You can click on the Last Chance and go straight to the retiring products.

 

If you place an order with me, please use the April Host Code of 3KNKXJFH.  If your order is $75.00 (of product) or more, I will send you a small gift.  If it is over $150.00 (of product) I will send you a small gift, but DO NOT use the code. 150.00 is the minimum host rewards so you get the host rewards.

Easter Greetings

This adorable bunny brings a smile to my face every time I look at it.  The artists at Stampin’ Up! were perfect on drawing this little guy.  I thought of him on an Easter card from the beginning.  I have that card to share with you today.  However by changing the sentiment, this would be a really cute baby card or just a Spring card.

 

Fable Friends, 148670

 

I think the Basket Weave Embossing Folder is a perfect pairing with the cute rabbit for Easter.  I was sort of surprised as  I was putting the card together that I had chosen all the pieces with texture to them.  My subconscious is better than I am!

I used a variety of products on this card and they are all listed at the bottom of the page.  The only thing to make note of is that I added the pearl on top of the little Frosted Flower Embellishment.  I believe I copied Julie DiMatteo on that.  I love it.  Then I noticed in my photo that it seems to have moved over just a tad.  I did not have time to retake the picture.  Oops!

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another project before the weekend begins.

His Grace for Pals March Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ March Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because ”Spring has Sprung” – at least on our blog hop if not outside! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

In looking for a stamp set to meet the Spring theme, I kept coming back to the set His Grace.  I love the flowers, that was what drew me to the set when I first saw it.  So I went with my instinct and made a very soft Easter card.  You can’t get more Spring than this.

 

His Grace, 148676

 

This is a really easy card to replicate as there is not a lot of stamping.  The floral is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  The Tufted layer is just a soft touch I chose instead of using DSP which my detract from the floral.

The die cut circle is from Wonderful Floral Framelits.  It is a simple WOW that I love!  The different look it gives to a simple circle (or it has a touch of an oval maybe?) is a nice change.  I popped it up with some dimensional and added a single pearl for some bling.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 10, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Families First” projects. Don’t miss the fun!
