Stampin' Up! Playing With Patterns

This little basket is so cute and easy to make.  The pattern has certainly been around for several years!   My daughter, Julie was here a week or so ago and made one of these. I had forgotten all about this I thought these would look cute on our dinner table for Easter with a little grass and some candy for each person.  

You can use cardstock or designer series paper.  Start with a piece that is 6" x 6"  Score at 2" and 4".  Turn and score at 2" and 4".   Cut where the dotted lines are.  Fold into the basket shape.  Adhere the folded up sides with Seal +.  Embellish as desired.  I used the Medium Daisy Punch and punched two and adhered them together to make one flower.

Stampin' Up! Springtime Joy

Unfortunately we won't be having most of our kids and grandkids here for Easter.  I need to get their little gifts out now so hopefully they will get them before Easter.  I put together small bags of Easter candy and made them each a card.  It's hard to see but I used the Stitched Whimsical Dies to add a border.  (Spoiler Alert: These dies are carrying over to the new Annual Catalog!)

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance

The Butterfly Brilliance Sneak Peek Collection has been so popular that the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper sold out in 2 1/2 weeks!  Unfortunately, it will not be in the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  I have seen many versions of this card on Facebook using the no-longer-available designer paper.  So I pulled out my pack of Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper and used one of the brushstroke patterns to put under this butterfly.  

This card is so quick and easy to make and yet looks so elegant.

Stampin' Up! Here's to You

Here is a bit about the April Paper Pumpkin Kit.  It is fun for kids of all ages and coordinates with the Ice Cream Corner Suite from the  January - June Mini Catalog.  I have a great-niece who has been chomping at the bit to stamp with me.  I will definitely have her over to make cards!  Click on the link below this image to sign up now!  The deadline to sign up for this kit is April 10!


Here are some cards I made with the March Paper Pumpkin Kit, Here's to You.  The first 2 cards are made as designed by the Paper Pumpkin creative team.  The very last photo is the gift that came in this month's kit - four stencils and a sponge.  March is Paper Pumpkin's birthday so special gifts are included!

This next card is an alternative card I made.  I took the envelope liner and cut it down to 4" x 5 1/4".  I used markers to color the stamp before stamping on the Basic White piece.

I used one of the stencils and sponged Night of Navy ink on the Basic White cardstock.
