♥ 3D Vignettes Easter Basket ♥

Hi there! I have a sweet little Easter Basket to show you today. It was so fun and easy to make. I made it using some sweet dies from the 3D Vignettes Collection by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders. To make the "basket itself, I used the Ornamental Arch Etched Dies. I simply cut out 4 "panels" using cream, Kraft and light pink cardstock. Then using some hot glue, I linked the sides together using some lace as my corners.

I then die cut the border die 4 times using kraft cardstock. I then adhered them to the inside of the basket to form my handle.

I then added some sweet bows to the handles with the Petite Double Bow and Flowers Etched Dies. ( I didn't make it a double bow though. Just a single one.;)

I then embellished it with pearls, flowers and filled it with grass. For the bottom of the basket, I just simple hot glued a piece of cardstock to the bottom.

Fill it with candies, eggs or a small gift! ;)

Hope you have a day filled with sweet surprises!!

♥ Easter Time 3D Basket ♥

Hello there! Can you believe it's almost Easter? This year is flying by quicker than last year! I thought I would make a sweet little Mantle Clock themed Easter Basket. It was actually my son, Antonio's idea. Well, kind of. He was walking past as I was die cutting these Grand Dome 3D Card Dies By Amazing Paper Grace and said "hey, they remind me of an old clock that goes up on a fireplace!" So while I was planning on making some sort of Easter basket out of them I thought maybe that is an idea! So here is my "Easter Time" Mini Treat Basket. They would look cute on a table all set for Easter as a little Gift/Decoration.

I die cut the Grand Dome 3D Card Dies out using some cream colored cardstock and assembled it by gluing it together at the sides with the tabs. I did not use the Side Panel Insert Die to make the slits. For the bottom of the basket, I just simply cut a piece of cardstock and hot glued the bottom of the basket to it and trimmed any excess off.

These can be filled with candy, a tiny stuffed animal, colored eggs, money or a gift card or any other small type of gift. The clock face was printed off of google images.

Don't forget, you can see the rest of Becca's Amazing Dies HERE!

Today is my oldest son's 12th Birthday. How did that happen?? Whew! Such an amazing, sweet, kind and loving kid and I'm so proud of him! Happy Birthday Antonio!!

Have a great day!

♥ Door Style Shaker Card ♥

Hi! I'm here today with a fun shaker card that is perfect to give to someone who just purchased a new home or for no reason at all, actually! :)

The first time I saw the Ornamental Arch Etched Dies by Amazing Paper Grace, I thought of an old wrought iron door. So when Becca said she wanted the Creative Team to make some sort of shaker card, I thought why not make a fun Door shaped shaker card using these gorgeous dies!

I just simply "hinged" the door using a little hot glue on the left edge of the arch inlay die. There are many ways you could do it but I just wanted to make it quick and simple. I stamped inside the shaker with a sweet sentiment from the Home Is Clear Stamp Set by Technique Tuesday. The door is kept closed by tucking it under the bow. ;)

I added a Graphic 45 Door Knob to the front of the "door" along with some flowers, ribbon and the leaves are from the Cinch and Go Flowers III Die Set.

Have a wonderful day!
