Hello and thanks for stopping by today! It’s a wonderful feeling to receive feedback on my projects. A few days ago I shared a project here on my blog created with a new stamp set called Blossoming Basket and an embossing folder. By way of comments both here and on social media, I was asked repeatedly to explain the creation process and share a video. Late night crafting often prevents me from creating videos and because that project did not have a video tutorial, I was overwhelmed with requests to create one. This project is a different card fold but the coloring is the same as the Double Z Fold Box card. If you have more requests, please send them my way 🙂

Blossoming Basket stamp set + Basket Weave folder
Sale-a-bration is a wonderful time of the year to stock up on supplies. By purchasing your general supplies, free items are earned! Such is the case of this project made with Blossoming Basket stamp set and the Basket Weave Dynamic embossing folder. I chose to feature the basket of flowers as a focal point that is fussy cut on the textured paper. The impressions left with this new embossing folder are amazing! There are multiple layers of depth that photographs don’t capture properly. I urge you to get a close look and feel it with your fingers.
Colored Pencils on colored card stock
Watercolor pencils are a great way to add color to most any image. When creating a project with detail, I can’t go wrong with a nicely sharpened colored pencil. It’s the basket coloring that clenched the choice, being able to give distinct definition to each detail. For a nice light brown base and undertone, I stamped the basket image in Sahara Sand ink onto Sahara Sand card stock. The pencils will cover the leaves and flowers with enough color to conceal the brown tones and the basket area will have that base color to help the added level of dimension. Be sure to look for the video link below for a detailed coloring and fussy cut video.
