Blossoming Basket Just For You...

My first use of the Blossoming Baskets stamp set for you today... and having seen lots of brightly coloured flowers around the web... I just wanted to go to the subtle side for a change...

This stamp set is part of the Sale A Bration earn for free with a £90 order Blossoming Basket bundle coupled with the fabulous Basket Weave embossing folder... and it is a such a lovely colouring set... even I have managed to colour better with more depth & highlights using it!
Blossoming Basket Clear-Mount Bundle
And here is a little video on the bundle for those of you that prefer them...
So the full basket of flowers was stamped in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake cardstock... a bit of Crumb Cake Stampin Blends action to add texture to the basket and handle (though the Crumb Cake Marker & a Blender Pen  would work just as well if you haven't got the Blends before they got turned off) And then a bit of fussy cutting...

The image was then stamped twice more in Memento Black... once on a trimmed Whisper White  3 3/8" square main image panel and once on scrap... the leaves were coloured in on the trimmed square panel using the Dark & Light Stampin Old Olive Blends... 
And just the flowers coloured in on the scrap piece... I used Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends... dark for the centres and light on the petals... and then blended the subtle petal colours out with the Color Lifter... so that the flowers appear almost white with just a hint of yellow... and then the flowers were fussy cut...
The little tag was again stamped on Crumb Cake card in Early Espresso... the hearts coloured in using a (retired) White Signo Gel Pen... and fussy cut...

The basket and handle were stuck direct to the main image panel ... with a quick extra banner with the For You wording being tucked in... Note that I handmade the banner... even though I do have the Triple Banner Punch... but it was upstairs!! And a quick 1/4" snip up the centre of a 3/4" wide white panel... followed by a quick snip from each corner to that centre snip... does the job without exercise!

The flowers and tag are stuck using 3D Stampin Dimensionals... those Mini Dimensionals being perfect for the tag!
All mounted up on a 3 1/2" Crumb Cake square panel... and onto a 5" square Thick Whisper White card blank (Cut card 5" x 10". Score LANDSCAPE at 5")

And then finished off with a Memento Black partial greeting from the Perennial Birthday set... as the wording just seemed so right with the image...
Think that is everything!
