Just add Easter

Thank you to the Design team over at Just add ink this week... you've given me the perfect excuse to buy the first Easter choccies of the season! This weeks challenge is to Just Add Easter! How could I make this sweet little Easter gift basket (designed by Makeesha Byl) without filling it up with yummy, choccie, Easter goodness? That just would not have been right...


I also thought this challenge was a brilliant excuse to crack open the newest colour ink pad and card stock in my collection.... Razzleberry! It's one of the luscious new In colours from Stampin' Up! that will be available from April 1st!


These little baskets are really so quick to make. It's simply a matter of a couple of scores, cuts, adhering and putting the handle on with some brads. You can see Makeesha's tutorial on this box complete with measurements here.



I used the wide oval punch to make my little Easter eggs and the sentiment is from the Chit chat Rub ons available in the current Summer Mini Catalogue which is such a great little set of rub ons with a sentiment for EVERY occasion!



I have used clear rhinestone brads throughout this project which pair so nicely with the flower images from the Vintage Vogue stamp set which will be available from April 1st!


Supplies used:

Stamp sets: Vintage vogue

Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Old olive

Cardstock: Rich razzleberry, Old olive, Whisper white, Cottage Wall DSP

Tools: Paper cutter, Bone folder, Mat pack (for piercing), Clear rhinestone brads, Chit chat rubons, Wide oval punch, Scallop circle punch, Scallop edge punch, Paper snips (scissors).

Happy Stamping! Love, Claire
