Basket of Wishes - Day 2 of 4

Hello everyone!  I'm excited to share my second day of Basket of Wishes with you!  These are probably my 2 favorites out of the 8 that I made on Saturday.  Saturday was World Card Making Day and I was able to sit down and make a bunch of cards.  If you missed the first 2 cards that I made with this set, you can see them here.  I will be sharing 4 more cards with this set tomorrow and Thursday.

The Basket of Wishes stamp set comes with a few baskets, fillers and sentiments to mix and match to your liking.  I love to color these images too!
When I saw the new challenge over at Fab Friday Challenges, I knew I wanted to play along and use this set for the card.  I love a simple sketch! I thought the basket would work great with the focal point front and center framed in the circle. I'm also adding this card to the Thanksgiving theme at SU Only Challenges.

Here are the two cards I made with the basket of pumpkins and gourds:

I haven't used my Woodlands Embossing Folder for quite sometime.  I think when it "retired" I tried not to use it.  Thankfully, Stampin' Up! heard the cries of us stampers and decided to bring it back!

Here I showed the reversed embossed part - I like the trees that way. :)

My absolute favorite part of this card is the Linen Thread.  I took my 1/16" Punch and made two holes on the sides of the basket to loop the thread through.  It turned out super cute and it was easier than gluing tiny pieces on the basket (honestly, my first thought)...

Simple enough...

For my next card, I didn't want to change it up too much.  I kept the same Woodland and Delightful Dijon DSP - same coloring for the basket...

For the sentiment, I stamped the "blessing of you" on white cardstock and used Stampin' Dimesionals to really make it stand out.  I tucked a little bit of the Delightful Dijon 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon behind each side of the sentiment.  You don't need to put ribbon across the whole back, just 1" pieces folded on each side.

So there you have it - day TWO of my Basket of Wishes highlight!  I hope you enjoyed these two cards.  Please pin them if you like them. :)

And remember... only two days left for the awesome World Card Making Day sale!  And for the entire month of October, stock up on DSP with the B3G1 deal!
