Blossoming Basket With A Banner Cards

LAST DAY For February Gift

FREE White Organza Ribbon With February Host Code: H9XPKUB2


Hi Stamping Friends!

The beautiful Blossoming Basket Bundle has been a big favorite from the Sale-a-Bration promotion already and it's easy to see why!  It's so much fun to color with the Stampin' Blends Markers!  Those markers have been ultra-popular, too, which is resulting in low inventory on many of the Stampin' Blends Markers colors.  Stampin' Up! actually released a special statement about impending backorders for many colors.

Stampin' Blends Markers Backorder Update: Stampin' Up! let us know that 14 of the 27 colors of Stampin' Blends Markers are either already on backorder, or are getting close to going into backorder.  They have been selling much more quickly than forecasted, and they do not anticipate getting their next shipment until the end of April.  If there are any colors that you want, try to get them right away before they are temporarily unavailable.  Because of all of the backorder issues, you cannot order the complete collection of markers, but you can order the colors and combo packs individually by color.  Here's the complete list of colors that are affected:

  • Bermuda Bay light & dark
  • Bronze
  • Calypso Coral dark
  • Crumb Cake light & dark
  • Ivory
  • Pink Pirouette light & dark (already backordered until June 18)
  • Pool Party light & dark (already backordered until June 18)
  • Pumpkin Pie dark
  • Smoky Slate light & dark

Background Basics—I embossed a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Crumb Cake with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.  I used a couple strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive along with SNAIL to attach the textured layer to the Whisper White Thick card base for a secure hold.  Next, I die-cut a 2-7/8" Pool Party scallop circle with the Layering Circles Framelits and adhered that to the background.  The banner is created with Tutti Frutti Designer Series Paper, cut at 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" and fishtailed at the bottom.

Blended Basket—I stamped the Blossoming Basket image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then colored everything in with Stampin' Blends.  I colored the basket with light and dark Crumb Cake markers. The light Pumpkin Pie marker kind of looks like Peekaboo Peach, so I used that for the flowers overall, then shaded with the light Calypso Coral marker.  The centers are colored with light Bermuda Bay. I finished up with light Pool Party and light Old Olive for the leaves.  Once I was done coloring, I hand-cut the basket with my super-sharp Paper Snips and popped it up with Dimensionals.

Finishing Touches—I added a 1/8" Bermuda Bay satin ribbon bow from the Sale-a-Bration Shimmering Ribbon Pack to the basket handle with a Glue Dot.  Finally, I stamped the Blossoming Basket greeting in Memento Ink onto Peekaboo Peach cardstock, then die-cut it with the Bunch of Banners Framelits and popped up with more Dimensionals.

Two Cool—For my second card, I added a different pattern of Tutti-Frutti DSP for the banner background.

Blooming Basket—This time, I colored the flowers with light Pink Pirouette and light Rich Razzleberry, which kind of looks like Sweet Sugarplum.
