Basket Tutorial...

I recently took part in the ILWS Spring and Summer 2014 blog hop and I posted this basket.

I have had a few requests for the tutorial I wrote for this for a recent class so I am attempting to attach the tutorial here for your use, enjoy!



ILWS Spring & Summer 2014 Blog Hop

Good morning folks, thank you for joining us for the ILWS Spring and Summer 2014 Blog Hop.  This is the first blog hop that I have ever taken part in for the simple reason that I was frightened I would do something wrong and mess up the whole chain of events so I have taken the bull by the horns and fingers crossed!!

You are joining me from the lovely Laura who has organised this 'hop', thank you Laura.  Laura has become a good friend since I moved to Norfolk and I want to thank her for making me so welcome.

The theme of the hop is Spring and Summer 2014 so I have chosen the Happy Watercolor set.  I loved this set the first time I saw it not least because my mum loves poppies and my dad loves orchids so it immediately caught my eye and the fact that it looked a nice set for those 'quick cards' when I have left things to the last minute (who me?!!)

This is what I made...

This was the first card, clean and simple.

I used the colour combo from the Watercolor Wonder DSP as inspiration, with a little bit of gold.

Another quick and simple card with a touch of gold and using the fabulous scallop tag punch, such a useful punch!

And finally, a little more involved is this little basket and of course I had to use the gorgeous Petite Petals stamp and punch for decoration.

That's enough from me so I shall now pass you on to the lovely Sarah and in case you get lost along the way, below is a list of the participants together with links to their blogs.

Thanks for joining us today.
