Blossoming Basket Part 2... and the Small Easter Basket now in inches too...

Quickly following on with another card using the Blossoming Basket bundle... which can be yours for free with a £90 order during Sale A Bration... though don't wait too long as Sale A Bration will end 31st March... that is just in 5 days time...

But before I start... as I have been asked by quite a few of you... the Tag Topper Small Easter Basket tutorial has now been updated to include the inches measurements from US Letter cardstock... and surprisingly it still works out for creating 2 mini baskets from the one piece of card... Click here for the tutorial...

Click here for the full details of the pictured versions... but Basket Weave embossed version...
 Faux Stitched version...
Ok.. back to today's card... quite a lot of details are the same as yesterday's card... but some sizing, colouring & layering differences... so I'll just start again and give the full step by step details... 

The full basket of flowers image was stamped twice in Memento Black... once on a trimmed Whisper White  4 1/2" square main image panel and once on a large piece of Whisper White scrap ... and then just the flowers onto another 2 pieces of smaller White scrap... 

A bit of dark & light Crumb Cake Stampin Blends action to add colour & texture to the basket and handle on the larger scrap (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 basket fussy cutting... Though I could have got away with just colouring the basket on the main image panel... but I had already done one separately!

But whilst I am on the subject... come back tomorrow for a Tips & Techniques post on using Many Marvellous Markers in a blended way!!!

And then the flowers colouring on the smaller scraps... one set of three... and one single centre one... I used Dark & Light Calypso Coral Stampin Blends... with Dark Daffodil Delight for the centres... and then the flowers were fussy cut... one trio and one single (centre) Love how the colouring on these flowers makes them look really realistic!
The leaves were coloured in on the main square panel using the Dark & Light Stampin Old Olive Blends... 

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 flat/direct to the main image panel ... though with hindsight I should have 3Dd the basket base...
The flowers and tag are stuck using 3D Stampin Dimensionals... those Mini Dimensionals being perfect for the tag! The trio of flowers being 3Dd.. then the single 3Dd again for extra dimension...

All mounted up on a 4 3/4" square Calypso Coral panel... and onto a 14.8cm square Thick Whisper White card blank (but use 5 1/2" square for US Letter card)

And then finished off with a Memento Black full greeting from the Perennial Birthday set... as the wording just seemed so right with the image...
Think that is everything! Amazing how so simple a card can need so many words!!

And if you missed it in yesterdays post... here is a little video on the bundle for those of you that prefer them...

    1. My pleasure Kathie... though ...as an inches girl myself... most of my tutorials for years do have inches too... unless it is a project that just doesn’t make sense for US Letter Card.. or it goes into 1/16” or 1/32” territory.... so there will be a lot more inches tutorials on here than you think...Enjoy...
