Best Bunny Easter Basket




Good Morning all,

I wanted to share this cute little Basket which I cased from Monica Gale, she created a video for it, so I will just highlight the little changes I made. I'm afraid it uses the retired Lots of Labels dies. If you own them, you too can make this adorable basket.  I made very few changes to this design. I used the Basket Weave DTIEF to give it that woven basket effect. And I used the Softly Falling TIEF on the circles. The Greeting "Easter Greetings" is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. I punched that out with the Classic Label Punch. Of course the star of the project is the cute little bunny. I used the Best Bunny stamp set and the coordinating Bunny Builder Punch (If you purchase the bundle you save 10%).

The Basket Base is a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock measuring 5 7/8" x 4", scored on the long side at 1 1/2" & 4 3/8". Turn and score the short side at 1" & 3". Cut up the the 1st line on both of the long sides. Fold and Burnish. Cut 2 of the pieces of Crumb Cake cardstock using the largest Lots of Labels die. Cut these in half. The basket handle is 3/4" x 10 1/8". Emboss all of the basket parts with the Basket Weave DTIEF.  Cut a 1 3/4" circle (with the punch) from Flirty Flamingo and cut a Pool Party Starburst Circle (with the punch). Adhere them together with Liquid Glue, then emboss with the Softly Falling TIEF.  Cut a Whisper White Bunny with the Bunny Builder Punch. Blush the cheeks, ears and tummy with Petal Pink. The bow is Calypso Coral Ombre Ribbon.

I've put together some bunny basket kits for those of you who are attending my workshop on April 6th. If you would like to attend I still have a couple of spaces available. You can see the event details here.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop: Easter



Welcome to the March Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop! Whether you came here from Karen's blog or just got started with my blog, I hope you enjoy what I have made for an Easter card, which by the way is our theme for this month. My name is Jan Musselman and I am an independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator. The Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop is a group of demonstrators from all over the world who get together once a month to bring you some inspiration with our contributions to the hop. This month marks the end of our Sale-a-Bration promotion. There is only a couple of weeks left. So I decided to create a Lasting Lily Easter card. Just a little bit different, I know, but I think it turned out quite well. So I have also included the Lily Framelits, Part of our Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Coordination promotion. I don't know about you but I would always rather have a coordinating set of dies to do my cutting for me.


I started with the SAB Lasting Lily Stamp Set. I stamped my Lillies with Daffodil Delight. I stamped the leaves and stems with Pear Pizzazz. I adhered them together with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I then created my sentiment banner by cutting some So Saffron Cardstock with the second smallest narrow Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I cut the right end with the Tailored Tag Punch ( I love that this punch can double as a Fishtailed Tag punch). I stamped the Easter Blessings from the Itty Bitty Greetings with Old Olive Ink. Then I cut it apart. Next used a die from the Well Written Framelits to cut "wishes" from Old Olive Cardstock. I adhered the Easter & the Wishes to the Sentiment banner. My Card Front was Dry Embossed with the Subtle DTIEF (Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder). Then using the largest narrow Rectangle Stitched Framelit, I cut the window. I added Adhesive Strips around the outside edge of the Card Front and around the window opening. I tucked in my Lilies on the right side, they stuck to the Adhesive strips right nicely. Adhered the Sentiment Banner to the Card Front with Liquid Glue & topped it off with a few Iridescent Sequins. I used some Grapefruit Grove Foil to mat my Card Front with. The card Base is Grapefruit Grove as well. The Inside layer has a sentiment from the Hold Onto Hope stamp set.

March 2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop / Theme: Bye Bye Sale-A-Bration



Welcome to the 2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop! We are saying goodbye to our Sale-A-Bration Products this month. It's been quite a wild ride. So many of the products sold out in record time. During the month of March, while supplies last, we were able to purchase dies to go with some of our Sale-A-Bration products. Of course the Hop Around Framelits for the So Hoppy Together stamp set were the 1st to sell out. Wow, that was fast.


My project today uses a few of our Sale-a-Bration Products. But I also pulled in a couple of elements from the Lily Pad Lake set. I started by stamping the So Hoppy Together images with Basic Black Ink and then heat embossed the images quickly with Clear Stampin' Emboss powder on Whisper White Thick Cardstock. Did you know that you can heat emboss with most of our Classic Ink colors. It creates a very fine detail which I just love. I cut the images out with the Hop Around Framelits, a Sale-A-Bration Coordination product. Using my Aqua Painter Brushes, I colored the frogs with Granny Apple Green Ink. The little bug has a Granny Apple Green body and Daffodil Delight eyes. For the Card Front I decided to try out the Glossy Cardstock. I Stamped the water area with the water stamp from Lily Pad Lake using Granny Apple Green again. Then I went over it with a very wet brush to blend the color out a little. The sky is a wash of Balmy Blue Ink. The Greenery (from the Lily Pad Lake set) and the Lily Pads are Granny Apple Green Cardstock. I added a little Old Olive Ink with the Aqua Painter to create a little dimension. The Water Lillies are colored with Melon Mambo Ink. The Sentiment is from the Part of My Story Sale-A-Bration (SAB) stamp set and the die I used to cut this out comes from the Lily Framelits another Sale-A-Bration Coordination limited release product that coordinates with the Lasting Lily SAB set. I put this all together on a Card Base of Melon Mambo. This card definitely made me giggle.

There are still some Sale-A-Bration sets available through the month of March, while supplies last. If you have your I on something, don't wait too long to purchase it. I hope you enjoyed my last look at some of our Sale-A-Bration products.

Now it is time top on over to Rebecca-Jo's blog and see what Sale-A-Bration inspiration she has for you.
