may all your chocolate be solid | Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Stampin' Up! Artisan blog hop - we always love when you drop by and say hello! This month I am playing around with this Basket Bunch Bundle.

I had some serious fun. The images are darling and the die cuts were so easy.  Check out the connected die cut below with the mini eggs. Yup. That made life so easy.

Here are the ins and outs of this project:

The Bag://  The bag is actually the Petite Cafe bags cut down to 3".  These bags are lined so they are perfect for any baked goods or loose treats.

The Fringe:// I die cut several of the grass dies from the Basket Bunch thinlets using pear pizzazz card stock.  I then distressed the edges with a sponge and old olive ink.

The Tag:// Stamp your sentiment on the Stitched Shape. Colour several images to adhere to your tag.  In my case I watercolored several images at once and then played around with what works best.

How do I watercolour?  Many people have asked so I'll put my old video link at the end of this post.

The Inside:// The best part of this project is the liner that I created to place inside. The paper I used was the Succulents Garden Designer Series Paper.  To see the score lines and the size of the paper, see my picture below.

As always, I have multiple projects going on at the same time.  You can see me clustering and playing around before I am happy with a project. This card came out of the aftermath of the treat bag above.

The fringe on this card pops up similar to the fringe on the bag above.

Of course, in my own style my preferred card is a simple 3.5 x 5" card on water colored paper.  I am here to remind you that simple cards are beautiful.

Don't stop here, there's more projects for you to see.  The beautiful and talented Dani is up next.

As promised, how to colour with Stampin' Write markers and an aqua painter... the easy way.
