Stampin Friends Easter Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin Friends blog Hop! I am so excited to be a Guest Hopper this month, I hope that you are inspired by the projects created for this months theme - Easter. Make sure that you work you way through the entire Hop by clicking on the names at the end of my post so that you don't miss at thing!

Can you believe that Easter is less than a month away! I really must get a move on with preparation of gifts, here is the first of a few that I need before Easter is upon us:


I've mixed some old with the new, my basket of goodies is made using the new Window Box thinlets and the card features the Circle of Spring wreath.


The base of the basket was easy to make using the Window Box thinlets. The Hexagon is cut in half and the second diecut is also trimmed to remove some of the bulk, to create the "basket weave" I used the cut outs from the horizontal die cuts and wove them back into the basket and glued in place. I added a half inch strip of cardstock for the handle, but I wanted something a little more special, so added the satin ribbon and bow to dress it up then packed it full of yummy goodness!


When looking for an Easter sentiment noticed Circle of Spring on my shelf, I can't remember the last time I used this set, the delicate flowers are just lovely and paired with the double bow perfectly compliment the basket. The wreath is stamped on watercolour paper and I also heat embossed with clear powder so that the Crumb Cake didn't run when colouring the flowers - I had a little "accident" and ended up with ink in the circle of my wreath, so I die cut the middle and then heat embossed my sentiment with Crumb Cake and clear embossing power in the background.
