Valentine Basket

Here is a sweet little Valentine goody basket made with the Two Tags Bigz Die (115954).  The fun thing about this basket is that you can dress it up any way you like:  Keep it simple as is, stamp on the Pretty in Pink paper, add more ribbon, add smaller punched hearts, use DSP for the handle or even the base!  You decide!

I also used the Happy Heart Stamp (132771 Special Valentine Promotion), Melon Mambo Striped Organdy Ribbon (129293 Spring Seasonal Catalog), Full Heart Punch (119883), and Hearts Collection Framelits (125599).  The paper is:  Pretty in Pink (100459), Melon Mambo (115320), Whisper White (100730).

I had several Christmas projects, including those made by my Stamp Club ladies, that I had planned to share with you; but my personal holiday schedule kept me so busy, I never got the projects photographed and posted for you.  Sorry!

Switching seasons  . . . .  I am, however, going to share a quick valentine card with you that was made from new products in the spring seasonal catalog and a sneak peek into Sale-A-Bration.

These are the supplies I used:
Cardstock:  Raspberry Ripple (126842), Primrose Petals Core'dinations (129332 Spring Seasonal Catalog), Whisper white (100730)
Stamp Set:  My Little Valentine (132242 Special Valentine Offer)
Ink:  Raspberry Ripple (126859)
Other:  Honeycomb Embossing Folder (129378 Spring Seasonal Catalog) Scalloped Oval Punch (119856), Large Oval Punch (119855), Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits (117332), Basic Rhinestones (119246),    Sycamore Street Ribbon from 2013 Sale-A-Bration, Dimensionals (104430).
The Primrose Petals Core'dinations paper was sanded with the Stampin' Sanding Block (129367 Spring Seasonal Catalaog) to make the white core show.
