Happy Easter

April 20, 2019

Today I am sharing the small baskets and cards that I made for my grandchildren.  The small basket is super easy to make.  You take a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper (or cardstock if you wish) and- in this case, I used the Gingham Gala 6″ x6″ Designer Series Paper – scored at 2″ and 4″, rotate 90 degrees and score again at 2″ and 4″.  Cut up the score lines to the intersecting score lines on two opposite sides.  Fold in the two outside flaps over the top of the central flap and glue together.  I cut a 1″ strip of matching Designer Series Paper to create handles.   To decorate the front of the baskets, I stamped images from the Fable Friends stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The images are coloured using the Crumb Cake, Dark Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink, Calypso Coral or Balmy Blue (depending on whether it was for a boy or a girl) Stampin’ Blends.  The images are cut out using one of the Layering Circle Framelits Dies and attached to a co-ordinating Grapefruit Grove or Balmy Blue scalloped oval cut using the same dies.

They look lovely don’t they and as I said super easy to make.

 

Of course, I also created cards to co-ordinate with the baskets.  I created Folding Bridge cards using Thick Whisper White card as my card base.  I attached strips of the Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series paper on the outside panels and also on the bridge panel.  I embossed either Grapefruit Grove or Balmy Blue card using one of the Petal Pair Embossing Folders to attach to the inside narrow panels.  To decorate the centre of the panel, I cut “happy” from either Grapefruit Grove or Balmy Blue card using the Well Written Framelits Dies.  The die cut is attached to Whisper White card before stamping the greeting from the Fable Friends stamp set using the co-ordinating coloured ink.  The Whisper White panel is attached to either Grapefruit Grove or Balmy Blue card.  I stamped the bunny rabbit from the Fable Friends stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the images using Crumb Cake, Petal Pink, Calypso Coral or Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends.  The images are cut out using one of the ovals from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and attached to either  a Grapefruit Grove or Balmy Blue scalloped oval.  The image panels are attached to the left hand side of the card front taking care to only put adhesive where it is needed.  I attached a panel of Whisper White card on either Grapefruit Grove or Balmy Blue card to the back of the card so that I could write a message to my grandchildren.

It takes a little bit of work to create these gifts for my grandchildren but I know they love and appreciate that I make something special for them.  Of course, I love creating for them as well!

Wishing each and every one of you a Happy Easter.

Bye for now,

Kris
