You’re The Sweetest Fruit Basket Cards

FREE Myths & Magic Washi Tape With March Host Code: 9MCXSTK7


Hi Stamping Friends!

One of my favorite things about swaps is that I often discover stamps and tools that I didn't know that I "needed" to have!  LOL!  It's especially true for shoebox swaps, where the participants design a card than bring on the supplies so others in the swap can make it!  It's one thing to see an already-made swap sample, but when you actually get your hands on a new product and try it out…that's when the magic happens—Gotta Have It!

Such is the case with the Fruit Basket Bundle!  I had the opportunity to use the stamps & punch at our recent Too Cool Team shoebox swap and now I'm so in love with those tiny punched fruits!  Today, I'm sharing the card that Kathe Madsen brought to the swap, as well as another fun Fruit Basket card with a printable Project Sheet.

Check out the video below to see the Fruit Basket Bundle in action!

You're The Sweetest Strawberry Basket Card

Oh my goodness…those tiny fruits are absolutely adorable!  Stampin' Up! makes it super-easy to create a whole basket full of strawberries, with the help of the coordinating Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack!  This card was so fun to create!
Background Basics—Kathe's card starts by embossing a 4" x 5-1/4" layer of Whisper White cardstock with the Oh My Stars Texture Impressions Folder, then mounting it onto a Real Red card base.

Sweet Sentiment Square—The Fruit Basket sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a Stitched Shapes 2-5/8" square in Whisper White.  It's matted onto the next size up of the scallop squares from the Layering Squares Framelits, then popped up with Dimensionals onto the card front.
Strawberry Basket—The basket was stamped in Memento Black Ink onto Whisper White scrap, then colored in with Night of Navy Stampin' Blends Markers.  It's fussy-cut with super-sharp Paper Snips, then adhered to the square with SNAIL.  The Fruit Basket strawberry stamp was stamped 7 times in Real Red ink onto scrap Whisper White, then the strawberry tops were stamped over the top in Garden Green.  They were punched out with the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack strawberry punch, then assembled in the basket, with one that tumbled out.  So absolutely darling!
