Hey there! Hope you've had a good day. We had another reminder today that winter is not entirely gone with rounds of sleet, rain, and a threat of snow! Fortunately, the snow did not materialize, but it was pretty yucky here most of the day. A big change from Saturday when it was in the low 70's!
I hope you've enjoyed the Stamper's Dozen March Hoppity Hop Hop! If you missed it you can go back to THIS POST and hop through all 13 blogs to see what our group created for you!
Of course, you know I couldn't just make one itty-bitty basket and leave it at that! Here's a couple of sets of baskets I made for my hostess gifts for the rest of March.
The first set I inked the tulips from the Backyard Basics set with Melon Mambo and Wisteria Wonder Stampin' Write Markers and cut them out with the Backyard Basics Framelits before adding them to the baskets with Glue Dots. I also edged each basket with "grass" cut with the Fringe Scissors and butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.
I've already given a couple of these baskets away. I went a little overboard with my punches for these baskets. I used the Boho Blossoms Punch and the 1/2" Circle for the sunflowers, and the Real Red and Primrose Petals flowers. I used the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack four-petal flower punch for the Rich Razzleberry flowers and scalloped-circle flower punch from the same pack for the centers of the Real Red flowers. All of the leafy stems are punched with the Bird Builder Punch.
Rhinestones and some Textured Impressions embossing finished it them all off nicely!
So what do you think of these little babies? Would you like one of your own? Every hostess from now on will receive a little hand-made project from me at their party!
In case you missed the tutorial, here's just the basket portion of my Hoppity Hop Hop handout:
That's all for now! I have a couple of new cards in the works, both using a new fold I call "Reverse Easel". Be sure to come back tomorrow to see the first one!
