Hello and Happy Tuesday!
I'm looking ahead to the next holiday and so today's project is my first Easter one for 2010.
There was a super challenge at Just Magnolia with a tutorial to make a cute Easter basket and I decided to give it a try.
There are more challenges helping me along the way:
Allsorts want you to "Get Distressed with Buttons and Bows"
The Secret Crafter wanted Monochrome tones of one color and white
Saturday Spotlight wanted Teeny Tiny
Just Magnolia had a special monthly challenge of an Easter Basket
Magnolia Stamp Lovers wanted Buttons or Bows
Raise The Bar wanted a Heart to Heart
Die Cut Dreams wanted you to Have a Heart
Stamp With Fun wanted Hearts
Cutie Stampers wanted Hearts
Cute Card Thursday wanted Spots and Dots
Lucys Cards wanted Polka Dots (some on the ribbon)
Etsy Inspired had a photo store for inspiration and I chose this photo to draw the colors from
Pinkle Art had a Rose theme
Crafty Angels want your Favorite Color
Tellens Place are playing Tic Tac Toe and this is my Hat Trick with my 3rd entry! I chose Flowers, Punch and Bling!
Sketch Saturday had the sketch I used for the matching card
I want to apologize for the shadows in the photos, it's a very dark day and no matter where I stood I got shadows, I hope it doesn't spoil it too much.
I used the super sweet Jam Tilda from the Yummy In Your Tummy collection. I colored her with Copic's.
The dp is My Minds Eye.
The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearls are Queen & Co.
I sat Tilda on the edge of the basket and then added a double mat behind her.
The bows are Offray.
The border punch is Valentines Lace by Martha Stewart.
The eggs were paper mache that I spray painted and then added ribbon around the middle.
The felt flowers on the handle were from Hobby Lobby.
I used the same products on the card with the addition of the Hearts "Punch Around The Page" set of punches from Martha Stewart.
The card opens a little differently than usual, I'm not sure what the "fold" is called but I think it could be an Envelope Fold as it looks like an envelope from the back when it's folded closed.
Here is a close up of cute Jam Tilda.
I'm ready for Spring to get here as we are having some cold, grey days here in Texas so be on the lookout for more bright and cheery projects coming your way!
