A tisket a tasket a Mother’s Day basket

This week we’re celebration mom at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  The challenge is to make any project – card, gift set, gift card holder, scrapbook page or any 3D project with mom in mind.  We’d love to see your creativity.

I’m so excited about my project this week because it is a sneak peek for the Strength & Hope Stamp set which donates $2 from every purchase of this set to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  This set is so beautiful.  I also used the Four Frames set which is available through the end of April and it is a set that will next be available with new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.  I would love to see how you’re going to show mom how much you care.  I can’t wait to see your creation.

The basket is from a template I saw on Sassy Scrapper’s blog.  I embellished the basket with a rose I made using the Fancy Flower punch and the butterfly from the new Strength & Hope Stamp set which will be available on May 1st.  The card featured DSP from the Strength and Hope Digital Download.  If you’re wondering how I made the butterfly two-tone, I sponged the lighter color of Pear Pizzazz then Marina Mist on the outer edge, stamped then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  For great instructions on how to make the quilled rose.  Go to Tara Bilbao, she has a great instructional video on her blog on how to make them.

Easter Favors to dress up your party

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an Easter theme challenge. Create any Easter project – cards, 3D projects, party favors, baskets, gift sets…you get the idea. There are so many projects you can create to dress up this holiday.

For this challenge I created a small bunny basket perfect for Easter candy. I printed the chocolate bunny, Spring Vintage DSP and sentiment from My Digital Studio. I dressed him up with ivory grosgrain ribbon and adhered him to the front of the box. I punched the sentiment with the oval punch and layered it over a Regal Rose Scallop oval. I modified this box template by cutting off the back and made a handle from Regal Rose CS with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch.

My other project is the carrot box made with Stampin’ Up’s Petal Cone die.  Love this die.  I textured the Pumpkin Pie CS with Texture Plates Kit #4.  The carrot top was created by cutting two Old Olive banners in half length-wise and curling them around a paper piercing tool.  I adhered them with mini glue dots to the inside of the flaps so the flaps could still be folded under each other to close the box.  The bunny was stamped and clear embossed then punched with 1-3/8 circle punch then layers on Peach Parfait DSP from the Hostess level 1 paper pack.  For the larger scallop I used Old Olive Polka dot DSP from Jolly Holiday.

Mother’s Day gift set

Since it’s time to start on Mother’s day gifts I found this free basket template on the Waltzingmouse Stamps website.   They have interesting templates.  Take a look.  This set was a lot of fun to make.  Just fill the basket with your favorite treat or gift and you have a cute gift.

Fancy Easter Basket

I recently purchased this template from Waltzingmouse Stamps and I love it.  You get two basket versions.  One tall basket like in my photos below or a small basket.  You choose.  But whichever one you decide to make they will turn out fabulous.  I am also submitting my basket for PPA35 – Anything but a card challenge.  I used the Sending Love DSP.  I am sad to say I’m down to my last few sheets.  I need to order more before the April 30th deadline.  On may May 1st a new mini catalog will take its place.  I am so excited.  The new catalog is full of new products and you’ll want them all like me.  So if you want any of the products in the current occasions mini, order soon before April 30th.  Now on to my project.  I am making a few of these baskets for gifts and for my Easter table decorations.  I decorated eggs with the Eggcellent kit which I am sorry to say is sold out!  But the basket with these eggs will be for my Easter table.  I’ll fill the ones as gifts with chocolate eggs.  Now who wouldn’t want a basket filled with chocolate eggs.
