Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

I used the Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch Bundle to create a Happy Spring card to share with you today!

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Happy Spring by Cardiology by Jari


This week, we have a color challenge with Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy and Crumb Cake.  

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Color Challenge

I started with a panel of Festive Birthday DSP that I adhered to a panel of Whisper White.  Then, I cut out two Stitched Shapes Squares, one in Crushed Curry and one in the same Festive Birthday DSP.  I dry fit them onto a panel of Whisper White so that I would know how much room I had for the rest of the pieces I had planned to add.

Next, I stamped the grass image from Basket Bunch in Emerald Envy onto a panel of Whisper White.  Happy Spring was then stamped in the upper right hand corner, also in Emerald Envy.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line the words up because they are single stamps from the Crazy About You stamp set.

My flowers, leaves, and bunnies were stamped next.  Then, I pulled out the Basket Builder Framelits Dies and cut them, the tall grass, and a basket out.  My Whisper White art panel was then adhered to a panel of Emerald Envy. I added the squares with liquid glue and adhered the tall grass to them with more glue.  Two of the flowers were colored a little with a blender pen and some Crushed Curry ink. The basket and white bunny were attached with Dimensionals, while the Crumb Cake bunnies were adhered with liquid glue.

One of the Lace Doilies was adhered to the Festive Birthday DSP panel with liquid glue, then the art panel popped on with Dimensionals.  A small bow was attached to the basket handle with a glue dot, and some Enamel Shapes added to the flower centers.  The inside has a plain Whisper White panel with a little strip of the matching DSP attached to the bottom.  And there you have it, a Happy Spring card. I hope you are experiencing a little spring like weather wherever you are!  

A complete list of Stampin’ Up! Supplies used in creating my card as well as card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.
