Grace

Hello everyone, it's Annette here today with another cutie today from The Stamp Basket featuring Grace.

I've used a pink and green colour scheme and one of my favourite dies, the Lavish Branch.  I've also used some gems on this one instead of my usual pearls, and glamour dust on her wings and dress to give some sparkle.

The pretty pink shiny papers are printed on both sides so I've used the bit left over from the main front and flipped it for the raised panel, and finished off the layout with a button and twine.

Tilly With Rose

It's Annette with you today sharing a card which features a cute Wild Rose Studio image of Tilly with Rose.  I've also used the gorgeous rich burgundy satin ribbon again because when I used it last week I realised how much I love it and it seems to match really well with the pretty papers.

I've used the gorgeous Pine Needles die again and of course my favourite Lavish Branch.  I think the green really compliments the rich burgundy ribbon.

Hope you like it.

Apple Blossom

It's Annette here today with a card showcasing Apple Blossom from Whimsy Stamps.  I was really pleased with it when I'd finished, but now I look at it, it could be more of an autumnal card with the apple harvest and rich burgundy and greens.  Still, we've not exactly got springtime weather, so no harm done!!

Jessica


Hi all,
Hope you are all keeping well and warm! I have a card to show you today using one the Angelica’s Friends range of stamps from Crafters Companion…I was really spoilt for choice as all the stamps in this collection are absolutely gorgeous but after much deliberation, I finally decided on ‘Jessica’. Isn’t she so cute?  
 
I coloured her with my usual copic pens…having refuelled some of them beforehand to make them nice and juicy! If you’ve not given the copic refills ago, I’d highly recommend them...very quick and easy to refill and so much cheaper than keep buying another pen! If you can’t see the colour you’re looking for in our store, just drop me an email and let me know!
 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by today – hope you have a great day!

Hugs,
Janet xx

Rebecca

Hello everyone, it's Annette here today sharing a 'pretty in pink' project.  The image is Rebecca from Saturated Canary and I've also used my lovely Memory Box Lavish Branch die, this time in its entirety instead of only using one of the two branches.

I've used an aqua and pink colour combo and added lots of pearls, lace and vintage ribbon in both colours.

Birthday Bear

Hi all,

Hope you all had a fabulous Easter, Its Lyndsey here today with a little bit of card inspiration here on The Stamp Basket Blog.

Today I am using an adorable Bildmalarna image from the Little Winged Friends collection called Your Birthday. Such a sweet image and just perfect for a young girls birthday - in fact I used it for my daughter's card off her brother for her birthday yesterday. To make it even sweeter Janet has this gorgeous stamp in the sale for just £4.88.


I coloured the image with my promarkers and die cut her out with SB die. I teamed the image with some pretty papers from Bo-Bunny, added lots of gorgeous flowers, a die cut La La Land Fence, Memory Box Party Lanterns & Fresh Foliage dies & some lovely vintage style ribbon & white 11/2" flat lace just peeking out underneath the ribbon .

I hope you like my card today - I went for a very pretty pastel, girly feel and it was another of those where I wanted to use as many things from my DT package as possible lol.

Thanks for joining me here at The Stamp Basket today
