I have used a new bundle that has just been released. It's called Blossoming Basket bundle (147505) and has a stamp set and a Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder or TIEF for short called Basket Weave. Did you Know that you can earn this bundle FREE just by shopping with me and spending $180. If $180 seems a lot why not try for $90 their are some gorgeous items in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue that you can earn for FREE just by spending $90

For my card I used a Basic Black card base with an embossed layer of Thick Whisper White. 
I cut my circle from the embossed layer before I embossed. It is important to do it before you emboss with the folder, otherwise you will lose the gorgeous texture you have just created.
The embossed layer has added depth by adding dimensionals underneath to lift it up and away from the Basket image.

The black framing the circle has been cut using the largest layering circle and then using my paper snips, I cut around the outside edge of the negative following the mark left by the die.

I stamped the basket onto a scrap piece of whisper white and then coloured it using the Stampin' Blends that are available now in the Occasions catalogue on pages 30 and 31.

The Stampin' Blends colours that I used are as follows:


Once finished I stamped the butterflies and repeated the process of colouring and fussy cutting. I also added clear Wink of Stella to the butterflies, just to make them shimmer and shine in the light.
The pretty little butterflies are held in place with glue dots.

I finished my card by grouping some pretty rhinestones down the left side of the card, this helped bring some balance and symmetry back.  

I do hope you have enjoyed this project today.

Hello and welcome 😊

I am designing today with the Ink It Stamp It crew hosted by Carolina Evans. We have all chosen our favourite Occasions bundle to create with and share today.
My favourite by far, is the Petal Passion bundle.
I just keep going back to it!



You are here with me Kim Oliver. I will have a full list of hop participants closer to the end of this post.

The Petal Palette set is just divine. You can colour the roses to match your colour scheme like I have done.

I have incorporated some different items to complete my card. A FREE item, the Tutti Frutti card base, you can just see the striped edges poking out. Also I used an existing annual item from the Oh So Eclectic dies, the green diamond lattice.
See the gorgeous corduroy ribbon? That's from the True Gentlemen range.
