Here is a card that I made using the die-cut Blooms, a ribbon slide from the NEW Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware Kit and the Bali Breeze Designer Papers.  Notice how I colored the ribbon slide.  I mixed a little Crystal Effects with some Real Red re-inker and used a toothpick to paint it on!!!  Thanks to my sideline Connie for this tip.

Here is another card where I did this on one of the NEW Brads in the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware kit.  This time, I used Old Olive re-inker to add some color to the middle of this brad:

Summer Picnic Apple Basket - Tutorial

I did this basket pattern a couple of years ago as a make & take project at some of my parties.  I thought it would make a cute gift if I used the NEW Summer Picnic Designer Papers.

Here we go!!

Supplies needed:

6x6 piece of Designer Series Paper, scraps of Whisper White, Real Red and Wild Wasabi

1x8 strip of Coordinating Designer Series Paper

Stampin' Write Markers in Real Red, Garden Green and Chocolate Chip

Paper Cutter with Scoring Blades, Paper Snips, Both Tag Punches, 1 1/4, 1 3/8 and Scallop Circle Punches, Stapler.

Wild Wasabi Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Linen Thread, Small Cello Bag

Take a 6x6 piece of the Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper and cut it to a 6x6.  Score it at 2" and 4" both ways.

1scoring

Then take your Paper Snips and cut up the score lines on two opposite sides.  (Sorry about the upside down picture...LOL)

2cuttinguptoscorelines

Pre-fold up on all the score lines.  This picture shows how the two outer squares fold over the middle square on both sides.

3folding

Fold up the cut sides having the outer squares create a "V" around the middle square, place your 1x8 strip between the "V" and the middle square and staple the whole thing.  Repeat on the other side

4staples

Notice how I have the staple legs on the outside of the basket.  You will be covering them up.

5staplein

Use your Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the Apple stamp from the Tart & Tangy Set.

6markeronapple

Stamp this onto a scrap piece of Whisper White and repeat the process so you have two of these.

7stampedimage

Punch the images out using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch, use the punch upside down for perfect punching.  Also punch two circles from your Real Red scrap using the 1 3/8" punch and two Scallops from the Wild Wasabi scraps.

8usingpunch

Layer the apple images onto the Real Red circles and then onto the Wild Wasabi Scallops.  Attach these to the sides of the basket with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Tie a knot in the Wild Wasabi Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and attach to the handle with a Mini Glue Dot.

10finishedbasket

I added some red M&M's to a small cello bag and tied it closed with some more of the Wild Wasabi Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.  I used the Stampin' Write Markers on the apple image again but this time I punched it out with the Small Tag Punch.  The larger layer is made by using the Large Tag Punch with a piece of Wild Wasabi scrap.  I attached the tag to the ribbon with some Linen Thread.

2-5-7-10 Box

I was cleaning up my stuff yesterday and came across these boxes. I demoed them a few months back.  They are 2-5-7-10 boxes and they are just the cutest things. 

I used the Priceless set and So Swirly Jumbo Wheel.  This one uses Purely Pomegranate for the box and has Wild Wasabi and Pretty in Pink accents.

25710pomegranate_2

I added another scalloped edge to the flap on this box.  This one also uses the Priceless set and So Swirly wheel.  I used Pretty in Pink for the box and then added accents in Purely Pomegranate and Wild Wasabi.

I am still working on those swaps but I will post my finished card when (and if, hahahahaha) I get them done!!

More Rub-Ons!!

Well, I tried but I just couldn't wait to use some more Rub-Ons.  These are from the SAB mini catalog and you can get them for FREE if you order $50 this month.

I found this plain white coffee mug at Walmart for about $2 and thought the olive rub-ons would look really cute on it.

Happyheartdaysuckerclose

I will actually be popping the mouse image up on dimensionals onto Purely Pomegranate card stock and using a Silver Brad.  I chose the Orchid for my prototype because it matched the Rhinestone brad.  Stay tuned for the completed items as I hope to get them done today during the Superbowl!!!!  Pattern by Dawn, thanks Dawn!!!
