Stop and Smell the Basket

The featured stamper on Split Coast this Sunday was Kelly (Schirmcat) of the Naughty and Nice list fame! I found myself on her nice list last November and somehow that wasn't the list people wanted to be on!?!?! Being on the Naughty list was more prestigious! LOL!! Oh well - at least I made a list.....!

I have been wanting to use my Papertrey Ink vintage basket stamps so I cased Kelly's pretty Giving Thanks card where she used one of them. I changed the background and sentiment stamps, the contents of the basket and colors of the buttons but kept her nice layout. I inked all the edges with Chai Tea Dye ink. The flowers are stamped right on the card stock and I colored the flowers with Copics and my white gel pen. The basket is cut out, colored with a Mustard color Copic and popped up over the flowers with foam dimensionals. I also added two cute flower brads where the handles are attached to the basket.

Hope everyone had a great weekend - we had perfect summer weather for 3 days - now it's back to work in the morning.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
