Stamp 'n' Hop March: Blossoming Basket

Welcome to this month's Stamp 'n' Hop blog hop! This month we are featuring Sale-a-bration products, and I've picked a few of my favorites. If this is your first time joining us, we are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world, and I am coming to you from Arizona in the United States. I hope you enjoy my project, and take some time to have a look at all the other talented artists on the hop!

My card today features the Blossoming Basket stamp set and the Celebrate You Thinlits, as well as the Amazing You stamp set. The Blossoming Basket stamp set is part of a bundle that you can get for FREE with a $100 purchase. I wanted to highlight just the flowers out of the basket image, so I heat embossed them in white, watercolored them with an Aquapainter and my ink pads, and fussy cut them. What do you think?

I pulled my color scheme from the colors of the Love Today Planner. I used Calypso Coral, Real Red, Emerald Envy, and Lemon Lime Twist on the flowers and leaves. You can see a full list of supplies below.

Stamps: Blossoming Basket (SAB), Amazing You (SAB)
Ink: Calypso Coral, Real Red, Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist
Paper: Night of Navy, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Shimmery White Cardstock, Wood Textures DSP Stack
Accessories & Tools: Versamark, White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Aquapainters, Celebrate You Thinlits (SAB), Stitched Shapes Framelits, Big Shot, Rhinestones

Make sure to follow along the hop. There is sure to be lots of inspiration!

Happy Stamping!
