Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Project Time…


Number 2

Hello Friends,

 Hope your having a great day!

This is my second post today so please scroll down if your looking for Just Us Girls!

Over at Stamp TV they have a Guest Designer search and this time they are

asking us to…

 Make anything BUT a regular, flat greeting card. 

It can be a unique card: like a pop up card, a gift card holder,

a tent topper, or it can be an altered item!

I chose to make a gift basket using one of my all time

favorite Gina K design sets called Hugs and Prayers

(It’s retired by the way…sorry)

and combined it with GKD sentiment from A Little Something stamp set.

I came across this great basket using nestabilities from the talented

Debbie Olson.  Of course mine doesn’t look half as good as hers

and I used a different nesty shape then the one she has pictured.

Then, I realized after I had adhered my panels that I forgot to add

the ribbon underneath.  Next time!

I also wanted to make my own 3-d flower using a Stampin Up flower blossom punch.

I watched this video here!

I have a few more photos for you so that you can see the process

along with different views.


I leaned it back a little for better lighting!IMG_0018

I have linked up Debbie Olson’s blog for you above so that you may see a real work

of ART.  The only dimensions that I changed was for my handle.

 My handle is 3/4 wide by 12 inches long.

The paper is from Stampin UP.

I used one of my favorite stems from My Favorite Things.

Used lots of dimensionals too!

Let me know if you have any questions and I hope you

have a wonderful day…thanks for stopping by!

The weather is gorgeous here…going to head outside.

    Have a great weekend.

  4. You did a great job on this and I need to give you an award for tackling it. Until Debbie compared it to putting in a sleeve, I would not have gone near this project. But with her and your examples, it is a possibility. You didn’t miss a thing without the ribbon.
    Yeah, I am with you about being out of your comfort zone.

  5. OMGosh, Nancy! I can’t imagine anything more Beautiful! LOVE the basket, the bird, the flower, and your colors!

  6. Beautiful project, Nancy! Love it!
