Last night while over at Lorries, stamping into the wee hours. Debbie shows me a card. It was one her sister sent her a while ago. It had retired stamps on it, but it was a great idea that totally inspired me.
I looked around the room and saw the perfect set to use. Best Wishes & More.
The fence is created using stamping a piece of Creamy Caramel card stock with the Sanded Background stamp using Close to Cocoa Classic Ink then punch out the smaller tag punch and sponge around the edge using Close to Cocoa Classic Ink.
I LOvE it! Just totally neat.
Thanks Debbie and your sister, too for sending it to you!
Several have asked how I made my basket.
Well, I used a quick simple technique to get the weave started.
First I placed 4 strips
then 4 more
then 3 more
and finally I only had to weave the last 3.
Pushing them all into the center.
Flip it over. Take a piece of 3 1/4" square to cover the centers and make it easier to fold the strips up.
Now you are ready to start weaving strips around the box.
I adhered each corner before turning to the next side this will give it strength.
After doing 4 strips high
I then cut off any excess paper on the top so I could place 4 Scallop envelope together as a box inside by basket. To finish off this basket I used a 3/4" strip folded in half to go around the top edge. Add the rest of your embellishments (ribbon, brads etc).
I have made several of these adorable baskets. They will be used as gifts and door prizes for a few differnet events. I am even saving one to be used as my blog candy to be drawn at the end of the month. So don't forget to comment today to get entered into the drawing.
Today another one of my cards was published on Stamper's Showcase, a great resource provided by Stampin' Up!
In this card I used the Just Buzzin' By stamp set.
I absolutely LOvE this set. It is so much fun to play with.
I created these crisp images by stamping them several times and cutting out each layer.
For each bee, I stamped on Whisper White, Summer Sun and Blush Blossom card stock, cutting out each then layered them appropriately. To finish off each bee I used two way glue and Dazzling Diamond glitter on the wings and a Basic Black Stampin' marker to accent the arms and the little balls on the end of the antenna.
The flower was stamped on Whisper White and Pretty in Pink card stock, and Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper. Cut and assembled. Finishing off with Old Olive and Summer Sun Stampin' markers.
For the back ground, I stamped the flower repetitively in Versa Mark and added a Raspberry Tart Designer Series paper strip at the bottom.
The beehive is only stamped twice, on Close to Cocoa and Whisper White card stock. Cut and attach, then I added a little detail with the Uni-ball Signo gel pen, on the side. Attached it with Stampin' Dimensionals.
