I hope you were able to make it to party yesterday! If not, stay tuned to see samples for all our new sets form the party over the next few days during our hops, plus lots more! I am so excited to share my newest addition to the basket series, Basket Additions 2, with all the upcoming spring and summery occasions not included in the first Basket Additions set, working for year round birthdays, gardening, baby showers, Mother's Day or bestie cards, vacations, patriotic picnics, and more! These new toppers fit both the Spring Basket and Holiday Basket, so have fun mixing and matching! This first card show the beach/pool topper with Holiday Basket.
Card base is Pure Luxury Wild Dandelion, sky is white sponged with Broken China Distressing Ink, and water is, of course, Pure Luxury Turquoise Sea! Tear a mound of sand for Kraft and use a brown marker to stipple a little stirred up sand under the basket. The sun was free cut from Gina K Pure Luxury Petals & Wings DP, that mottled print just gives this summer day a bit of shimmer and sparkle to sunlight without adding glitter!
There's no picnic as fun for me as a summer one where you anticipate fireworks, homemade ice cream, sparklers and juicy watermelon! Gingham DP, like a checked blanket or tablecloth is Pure Luxury Pool Side. Cardbase is Red Hot and tag is Innocent Pink. Love how WOO HOO fits onto the banner pennants perfectly with the space in between! ;)
Holiday Basket and Basket Additions 2 topper are stamped directly onto a white mat, so the only cut out is the banner. You could stamp the banner first, then mask and stamp the basket over it if prefer not cutting, but I love the dimension it adds to that detail an the overall design. Red bakers twine is the perfect finishing touch!
I will come back to share what Copic colors I used in which areas in another post, I just don't have it ready! Looking forward to showing you what else I made with the baby, birthday, gardening and spa topper (just in time for Mother's Day!) ;)
You will add so much elegance and oomph to your cards with these, and now you can have 4 different trims that can also be stamped together to make wider borders, in every color that you have powder, ink or flock! LOVE!
Look how simple it is to put together a gorgeous card with this set. Stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black one way then turn and stamp the other. Add greeting below and embellish with some white and ivory buttons and a mix of paper and silk flowers and mount on Black Onyx base. Perfect wedding, anniversary or "I love you" card!
Be sure to come back Monday when I show you a fabulous tone on tone background for another one of our new release sets using all four borders!
