Hello! Boy, do I have exciting news today! For the month of April, I will be serving as a guest designer on The Friday Mashup challenge blog! I am so excited and honored to be a part of this awesome group! This is a challenge I play along with regularly so I am excited to be a part of the team!
Here is the challenge for this week:
Create a project using "so saffron, pool party and calypso coral".
- Create a project with "Easter Critters".
- or Mash it Up! and create a project "using the colors above and Easter Critters".
A basketful of peeps! Last year I purchased the woven basket die set from MFT but never got around to using it. I started off by cutting the basket out of kraft and then using some rich cocoa memento ink to “age” the basket a bit. I added score tape around the edges and curved the basket a bit to fit all the peeps in.
I added some Easter grass in the basket and proceeded to stuff as many peeps as possible in there. I cut the peeps using a die from this woven basket set out of so saffron, pool party and calypso coral. I found my tall grassy die to add some grass for the basket to sit in.
The tag is one that I purchased at an office supply store. The sentiment is from an old whimsie doodle stamp set. I layered everything up on the new PTI vanilla cream linen cardstock.
I hope you enjoyed my project today. It was fun to make and definitely more fun to share with you all! (I think my favorite part is the little ears that peek out above the basket. These little guys just weren't tall enough to peek out of the basket *wink*!)
Be sure to play along with The Friday Mashup this week!
