Bountiful Basket and Blushing Bouquet...


Pam here to share a card with the NEW Spring and Summer 2014 Collection.  Click the pictures to see the card and close up photos full size. 

I embossed the NEW Distressed Tula Stencil  by running it through the Big Shot on Kraft card-stock.  I inked it with Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool. Layered this piece to a 4 3/4 x 6 inch white card base.

I die cut and embossed the NEW Bountiful Basket die from Kraft card-stock and inked it with Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool too.  LOVE this basket... it's going to be cool for so many things! 

I die cut and embossed the NEW Blushing Bouquet die from Dill card-stock and then again in Sweet Corn card-stock for the flower part of the die.  I ran the Sweet Corn flowers back through again to emboss them.  

While the flowers are still in the die... I shaded them with a little more color using two Copic Sketch Markers...Y13 and Y15.


I love adding greenery to flower arrangements...so the search through dies begins for the right leaves!  I love this NEW Beach Sprig die, it adds a whimsical, sprinkly, spronkly feel to the card.  I cut it from Meadow card-stock. 

Then I needed some larger leaves so I used the Slender Leaves die in the basket and an end piece from the Norwich Corner die with the loose flower, both cut in Dill card-stock.  I love using pieces of dies to finish things off.. just makes me happy! : )

The single flower is one of the dies in the Botanic Frame set.  Perfect match!

I needed a table doily... so to speak! *grin*  Enter the Holly Holiday Frame Set.  Love it!  So dainty and pretty... love the little flower it cuts out in the corner... wouldn't it be sweet pieced back in with a color card-stock!  Another card idea! 

And then...back to this NEW release...check out this NEW Plush Bow die cut in Lavender card-stock. A darling addition to the basket of flowers...feels like Spring/Easter for sure!

I think that pretty much covers the details for my card... holler if you have any questions!

Hi Pam- I have had my eye on that Bountiful Basket die from the moment I saw it. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

Your card is adorable!! It's perfect for spring cards. Thanks for the inspiration and the opportunity to win. I just bought that flower die, too. Yipee!!!

Beautifully done, Pam! Love how you used the 'doily' die! Lol... Seriously, it was pure genius! Looks like a very dainty antique dresser scarf! Well done - thanks for sharing!

Beautiful, Pam... like everything you do. So smart of you to use these cute flowers from the frame set and the label as a doily. :)

What a delightful card with outstanding details! I love the purple ribbon, the white mat your basket sits on and the fact that you chose to use flowers in your basket vs. anything bunny or egg related!
