Watercolor Basket Bunch - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop!  You should have arrived from Dani's.  She is amazing - love her style - and she never disappoints!  Either way - I'm so glad you're here.  We are a group of 20 demonstrators from around the globe highlighting some of the latest and greatest Stampin' Up! products.  If this is your first time hopping with us, my name is Holly and I live in the US (Minnesota).  

This month we are featuring two bundles from Stampin' Up! - the Basket Bunch Bundle and the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle.  I chose to feature the cute Easter set Basket Bunch.  I love the little eggs, the peeps, chocolate bunny and the Basket Builder Framelits Dies.  

For the background of these cards, I used Aqua Painters, ink and Shimmery White Cardstock.  With the beautiful color choices SU! offers, finding spring colors was easy!

Do you remember the hollow chocolate eggs and bunnies?  They were never as good as the solid chocolates, right? - This sentiment makes me smile!
I also made the baskets different by adding Stampin' Dimensionals to different layers of the die-cut baskets. 

I love the pop of colors during Spring time and certainly wanted to use some of Stampin' Up!'s pretty colors.  Here I used So SaffronFlirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz.

The washi tape and the DSP are both from the Tasty Treats Suite.

I also wanted to make a little treat.  I think these will be the treats we give to the boys for Sunday School friends.  The 2"x 8" Cellophane Bags are the perfect size for candy, chocolates and these sweet jellybeans.

I doubled up on the tag making a front and back.  This helps hid all the die-cut "mess" and gives me a place to write a cute little note.  I added some Peekaboo Peach 3/8" Ruched Ribbon and some Linen Thread to finish it off.

Our Stampin' Up! Stampin' Write Markers are perfect for coloring the details of these cute little eggs.

I hope that you enjoyed these Easter projects!  Be sure to make your way around the hop!  Up next is my lovely friend from the US - Jennifer Sootkoos =)

Have a blessed day!
