Stampin’ Up! Easter Basket for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!  I created an Easter basket from the Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch Bundle for our Hop today.

We had a sketch to work with this week.

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Sketch Challenge

I started by layering  panels of Succulent Garden and Mint Macaron In-Color DSP (both retiring!) onto a panel of Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  Next, I die cut some grass from the Basket Builder Framelits Dies in Mint Macaron and adhered it to the front with liquid glue.  I die cut a Stitched Shapes square from more of the Succulent Garden DSP and gave it a scalloped border with some more Sweet Sugarplum card stock.

My Easter basket was stamped in Soft Suede onto Crumb Cake card stock and die cut out.  Next came the eggs, cut out with the Basket Builder Framelits from Mint Macaron (retiring!), So Saffron and Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  Each one has 2 layers, one with cut outs and one solid.  I brushed some Wink of Stella over them to give them a little pizzaz! Next, came the bunny,stamped in Memento Tuxedo black and colored in with some Pink Pirouette and Sweet Sugarplum markers.  The banner was stamped in Versa Mark, sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed.

A list of stamping supplies needed to create this card as well as card stock cuts in inches are at the end of my post.  


I hope you’ll hop around to Kristi to see what she and the others have created for today.
