Basket Additions 2: Another super cute set from our very talented Melanie! and great for Paper piecing or coloring.

Directions:
  • Make card base from White cardstock (heavy weight) 6" square.
  • Cut a panel from Innocent Pink Cardstock (5.5" square), mat this with Petals & Wings Patterned Paper (ink all edges) and add zig-zag stitches.
  • Tie Light Pink Gingham Ribbon around and adhere piece to card base.
  • Die-cut a piece of White CS using Fleur De Lis Square Nestabilities, emboss and stencil as well. Adhere it to card base with pop dots.
  • Stamp image onto White cardstock. Color it with Copic Markers. Cut them out and glue basket direct onto White Square piece and add top piece with Pop dots.
  • Paper piece blanket and book (Paper used from Petals & Wings Patterned Paper)
  • Create a double bow with bow-easy and adhere it to card.
  • Add a couple of Gold nail heads to opposite corners.




Lacy Borders: This is one of my favorite sets :) So elegant and easy to work with.

Direction:
  • Make card base from White Cardstock.
  • Cut a panel from White cardstock. (5" x 3.75")
  • Stamp sentiment in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  • Stamp Border Scallop lace image onto Vellum paper (x3) in Versamark Embossing Ink. Add Bridal Embossing Tinsel and heat it up. Cut them out.
  • Adhere the lace stamped image on your card panel with 1/8" Scor-Tape.
  • Add White Organdy Ribbon around, add paper flower.
  • Add little drops of White Opal Liquid Pearls.

Both cards are stunning and so much so that I wouldn't want to give them away! I definitely would keep them if I were the recipient! The lace looks so real - certainly a way to have lace in the exact color you need for your card or page layout.

Inspired to the max. That lace stamp set is fantastic. Who knew there could be so many uses? Well, of course Gina K, did, but wow. I am blown away by what you did with it. I love the baby basket card, and I am impressed with it, as well. I definitely have these two stamp sets on my list of "Wishes". Thank you.
