Baskets

I got some new Hero Arts stamps yesterday!  This Sunny Smiles basket set was one of the tops on my list, and it is the first one I'm playing with.  For this first one, I just stamped the flowers right onto the die-cut circle, colored them in, adding some tiny gems in the center of the daisy-like flowers, stamped the sentiment in a semi-circle, then stamped and cut out the basket on kraft paper and glued it over the flowers. 

Supplies: CG199 Sunny Smiles, CL342 Everyday Sayings, Nestabilities Scalloped Circle and Circle diecuts, colored pencils

And for this one, I decided to add some strawberries to the basket, and a little blue lacy liner.

Supplies: CG199 Sunny Smiles, S5101 Raindrop Background, CL320 SparkleClear Designer Fruit, BoBunny Back to Basics paper,  white, blue, and red cardstock, Adirondack Stonewashed and Versafine onyx black inks, green colored pencil

And for the final one, I used the flowers again and one of my favorite color combinations, blue and yellow.

Supplies: CG199 Sunny Smiles, CL342 Everyday Sayings, Martha Stewart pansy border punch, yellow and white cardstock, Bazzill dotted blue cardstock, colored pencils, blue and white pearls
