Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Waterfall Easter Card

This isn't exactly what I first imagined when I decided that I hadn't made a waterfall card for my classes in a while, but I'm pleased with it.  I love the Basket Bunch Stamp Set, and the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder makes a fun background for this card.  The bunny image, chicks, daffodil and egg stamps were used as well as the grass and basket pieces from the matching Basket Building Framelits Dies.

I shortened the basket handle so that it would fit nicely in the allotted space.  The Happy Easter sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, and I used the "PULL" from March's Paper Pumpkin kit to provide an added hint for the card.  The sentiments were die cut using the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  (I'm sure my original instructions came from Splitcoaststampers.)  I hope everyone will enjoy making this motion card at my end March class!

Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper All Occasion Card

This card is of course inspired by the brayered background on page 10 of the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration catalog. Its base is the fun Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper. I used more muted colors, and combined some colors as well. We'll use the Sponge Brayers for this card as well as the Watercolor Pencils and Blender pens. The flower size will vary based on which one you choose. You can make decisions about the embellishments to make the card your own.  I hope everyone enjoys doing that. The card is lined with Pool Party cardstock.
