Hi There :o)

These boxes are really quick and simple to make and I hope you enjoy the video! Here it is .....

Using the Simply Scored board ....

Blossoming Basket - 3 Ways

I have three cards to share with you today. All are very similar, but they have each been coloured differently and use different colour combinations.

They all use the beautiful Blossoming Basket bundle which is another FREE selection you could make with a qualifying £90 purchase until the end of March. Of all the FREE products available during this year's Sale-a-Bration promotion, this bundle is my personal favourite!

The sentiment comes from another of the FREE sets - Eclectic Expressions.

I used the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers for this first card. 

The basket was coloured using Smoky Slate, the foliage with Old Olive and the blossoms with Cherry Cobbler and a touch of Pumpkin Pie.

The card has two layers on the flowers. I stamped the image directly onto the white mat and coloured it. I then stamped it again onto another piece of white card, coloured the flowers and cut them out by hand before layering them over the first image using Dimensionals.

This second card is my favourite .... but I think that's mainly because I used Yellow :o)

I didn't do the second layer of flowers for this one and I coloured it using an Aqua Painter and the ink pads.

The Basket is coloured with Crumb Cake, the Flowers are Daffodil Delight with a little Pumpkin Pie and the Foliage is Pear Pizzazz.

I also stamped the Butterflies directly onto the White mat this time.

For this final card, I did the double layer of flowers again. I love the look both ways - with or without this. This time the image was coloured using a Blender Pen and the ink pads.

My colours this time were Rose Red, Sahara Sand, Garden Green and a little Crushed Curry.

As I said, the yellow one is by far my favourite :o) Which one is yours?
