A Tisket ... A Tasket ...

Hello All!
It's time for a new inspiration card designed for
using dies from the Dies R Us Store!

Did you know the First Day of Spring in Monday??
And, Easter will be right around the corner, so I have a fun
creation to share that will get you in the Springtime/Easter mood!


The color on this card is actually more of a rosy pink but for some reason my camera decided to make it more of an orangey/peach color... uugh!

Anyways, today I'm using up some oldies but goodies!  Which includes some old Stampin' Up papers,  dies I've never used before as well as  ribbon I've had in my stash from Really Reasonable Ribbon and have never tied a bow with until today!  Oh yea ... and the Impression Obsession bunny (DIE168) was laying on my worktable so he got included in today's design too.

Tutti Designs - Dies - Easter Flower Basket

After die cutting my Tutti Easter Flower Basket die, I colored it using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  It's a beautiful open weave die but I wanted to make the basket portion solid so the background papers didn't show through.  To do this I simply used a scrap of white card stock and sponged some color onto it using Tim Holtz 'Antique Linen' & 'Brushed Corduroy'.  Then I attached my basket to the sponged panel and fussy cut around it.  Viola!


The left side background panel is actually the reverse side of the SU design paper I used for the background.  Instead of just leaving the panel as a straight cut, I decided to use the Sue Wilson 'Gemini Die ' Phoenix' to cut along the one edge to dress it up a bit.
