April Waltzingmouse S.O.A.P. Day #4 55

Mona Pendleton | Monday, April 4, 2011 @ 2:36 AM | , , , ,

Welcome to Day #4 of the April Waltzingmouse Stamp Of Approval Parade! Sure hope you have enjoyed what you have been seeing over the past three days and no doubt, today's samples should make your creative inspiration cup overfloweth ;) First, I would like to welcome three new awesome and talented designers to the Waltzingmouse DT: Kate Whelan, Niki Estes  and Tosha Leyendekker. No doubt they will all provide you with tons of inspiration! 


There is a lot of festivities going on at Waltzingmouse Stamps that you won't want to miss, so please be sure to visit Claire's blog (click HERE) for COMPLETE details!!!

Today, we are all sharing projects made using Spring Baskets.
Spring Baskets is a set jam packed with so many interchangeable images and sentiments. The creative possibilities are endless! I am willing to bet, not one sample made by the entire DT will be the same!

First up, is a sweet basket that I stamped, colored using a combination of Copics listed below, then paperpieced the basket.The flower trio image was stamped, colored and 3 buttons sewn in place.
Close up, you are able to see these darling little flowers were popped up so the leaves would fall over the edge of the basket:
Using the same layout, just changing up the patterned paper, flowers and sentiment:
This card features a basket full of Daffodils. I popped the basket up using 3D foam squares and attached a little bow and button. The basket full of Daffodils is layered on top of a pretty doily made using a Heart Circles die template which was then layered on top of a label made using a Labels One die template and a piece of PTI Fine Linen cs that was ever so graciously given to me by my sweet friend Stephanie :)
Below, are the Copic markers I used to color the various flowers and baskets:
That's all I have to share today ~ I'll be back tomorrow to share some exciting news :) Thanks so much for looking and to see more amazing inspiration, please be sure to visit Claire and the rest of the Waltzingmouse DT members listed below:
