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”

Hip Hop Hooray, for the First Technique Class 9 Came to Play!

Andrea, Pat, Lois, Arlene, Deborah, Carmen, Diane, Kelly, and Amelia all had a great time stamping at my first Technique Class of the year.

This Technique Class was mainly about inspiration. Inspiration is all around us and I found this cute Hedgehog which inspired me to make this card.

I can’t help but browse the card section when I’m in a store and I saw this cute heartbeat card that inspired me to make my own.

I didn’t need much inspiration to make a card using the newest Stampin’ Up! tool the Stamparatus and how could I resist making this adorable Bunny card!

I recorded a video for this card and will post as soon as I’m done editing.

Sometimes we spend a lot of time trying to come up with an idea for a card and we forget to just look around us and get inspired.
