Stamping Friends Blog Hop | No Rules!



Welcome to this month's Stampin Friends blog hop, our theme this month is "No Rules", so anything goes! And we have a great giveaway this month...... a Stamparatus!!!! Make sure you check out below for the details of how you could be a lucky winner!

So in the theme of anything goes, and the fact that my scales seem to be heading the wrong way with my diet, I've incorporated chocolate into the theme and created coordinating Easter themed projects


I couldn't resist this little Easter basket that Lisa Lange posted on Facebook - I just had to give it a try! I dressed up the Crumb cake texture embossed basket with Calypso Coral Sheer 1/8" ribbon and 1/4" Organza ribbon - they layer perfectly. Next was the cute bunny image from "A Good Day" - this stamp set has some gorgeous small images, and I love the coordinating scalloped punches, popped some Ready Shreddie into the basket then added the eggs.

The Narrow Note card is the perfect size to accompany this basket. I used a matching bunny image, and repeated the texture with the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder - I sponged a little crumb cake on the inside of the folder before putting through the Big Shot, which created the darker square in the pattern, I cut a couple of scalloped squares for the border and layered underneath, wrapping the layered ribbon and popping the bunny image on dimensionals.
