Blooming Basket Bundle Card Made Easy!

Every time I saw a card made with the Blossoming Basket Bundle I cringed at the fussy cutting needed if you wanted the basket and flowers to pop. Then I figured out that if you use the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch you can almost get a perfect cut of the inside part of the handle. Then there was the coloring of the flowers…not so hard with my messy blending technique.

Take a look at the video and see how it’s done.

Card Measurements:

Whisper White Thick Cardstock – 8½” x 5½” folded in half

Whisper White Cardstock – 2″ x 3″ for stamping flower

Whisper White Cardstock – 3″ x 3″ for embossing

Basic Black Cardstock – 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″

Crumb Cake Cardstock – 2½” x 3½”

Old Olive Cardstock – 1½” x 5½”

1st Class of the Year, One of Many Firsts!

Today was my very first class of the year. This year will have many firsts,

  • the first week without a corporate job
  • the first week of my full-time Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator career
  • the first time I’ll be scheduling daytime classes
  • the first time I will hold Mommy & Me or Grown Up & Me, classes (I’m still working on the name since I do not want to exclude Dads and Grandparents, suggestions welcome!)
  • the first time I’ll be recording a FaceBook live class
  • the first time I will be recording virtual classes
  • the first time I have more time to create and record videos
  • the first time I will be traveling to Europe!!

I’m so excited for all these firsts! Of course, they will involve a lot of work, but as Confucius says;  “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”.

My friend Debra LaFountaine and I held our first monthly Central Florida Stampers class and thank goodness she remembered to take photos right after the setup!
