Punch Art Easter Bunny Basket

I figured I better get my Easter stuff up on my blog before I realize it's too late....again, here's that Fancy Favor Die being used for a treat container (you really MUST have this die).  I cut out the box with Raspberry Ripple cardstock and stamped the Upsy Daisy onto the front from our Best of 25 Years stamp set  and assembled.  And then I started on the bunny. I won't go into all the details, because you can see where each thing needs to be, but I did want to list the punches I used: Wide Oval, Large Oval, Ornament, Blossom, and Owl. I sponged the edges with Whisper White ink.  Cardstock I used was Soft Sued, Pink Pirouette, and Very Vanilla.  I stamped Happy Easter in Raspberry Ripple onto Very Vanilla and free handed the dashes and wrapped around a toothpick. I filled it with handmade peanut butter eggs, and gave to my little ones that I babysit for.

Spring Surprise Promotion

Right now, did you know...that you could own something from the UPCOMING 2013-14 Idea Book and Catalog? Yep, sure can! It's the Spring Surprse Promotion and you can see the details right here:

I started out using the Fancy Favor Die out of River Rock cardstock and cutting it out and slicing off about 2" from the top part of it so it's much shorter than the original box would be.  And then cut 1"x 3" (10 of these) strips of River Rock cardstock and running them through the Woodgrain Embossing folder and sponging the edges of each one with Chocolate Chip ink.  I then trimmed them to resemble a "picket" fence and adhered them onto the die cut box.  I cut a strip of River Rock 3/4" x10" for the handle and attached them with brads.  I wrapped the whole thing with Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon and tied into a bow.  I stamped the scallop flower in Rose Red ink and punched out with the 7/8" Scallop Punch and then stamped the same stamp with Summer Starfruit and punched out just the words with the 1/2" Circle punch and popped it up with a Dimensional onto a piece of Print Poetry DSP using the Large Tag Punch and adhered it to the bow with some White Baker's Twine.  Not sure who it's going to go to, but I like it! I actually some other ideas for some different boxes!
