International Highlights - Blossoming Basket Bundle




Hello everyone 😊

I am taking part today in the International Blog Highlights hosted by Kylie Bertucci
This involves demonstrators from all around the world coming together to share what they love with you in the one place.
Kylie hosts these highlights every month and has a different theme for each highlight.


This months theme is our Favourite Sale-A-Brations or Occasions item from the 2018 catalogues.
 I chose a Sale-A-Bration second release bundle that is now available called Blossoming Basket.

For my card I used an antiquing effect with the new  Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for a stunning background.

Antiqued Gold Embossing 

  • To create this effect emboss the card stock then dust with embossing bu   ddy pillow. 
  • Lightly wipe versamark inkpad over embossed area, spronkle with gold embossing powder, heat. 
  • Wipe the area again with memento ink and gently rub in with a tissue, reheat to seal.

I also used the Basket Weave TIEF for the focal circle behind the basket of flowers.

My card base is Thick Whisper White with a layer of  embossed Sahara Sand. Behind the whisper white embossed circle is a scalloped gold foil circle. I stamped my flower basket in memento ink,
I then coloured the basket using my Stamin' Blends  and finally I fussy cut it.
Gosh I do love those Stampin' Blends, they are just so easy to use and give such vibrant colours. The colour lifter is so useful too! I used it for removing mistakes plus adding extra highlights on the flowers and the basket too!

To carry the colour through to the inside I just added a layer of Sahara Sand under a layer of whisper white and glued both to the inside to my card base.

To finish my card I added linen thread plus 6 pearl basic jewels. They just add a little delicateness that was needed to finish.

I have used a new bundle that has just been released. It's called Blossoming Basket bundle (147505) and has a stamp set and a Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder or TIEF for short called Basket Weave. Did you Know that you can earn this bundle FREE just by shopping with me and spending $180.

For my card I used a Basic Black card base with an embossed layer of Thick Whisper White. 
I cut my circle from the embossed layer before I embossed. It is important to do it before you emboss with the folder, otherwise you will lose the gorgeous texture you have just created.
The embossed layer has added depth by adding dimensionals underneath to lift it up and away from the Basket image.

The black framing the circle has been cut using the largest layering circle and then using my paper snips, I cut around the outside edge of the negative following the mark left by the die.

I stamped the basket onto a scrap piece of whisper white and then coloured it using the Stampin' Blends that are available now in the Occasions catalogue on pages 30 and 31.

The Stampin' Blends colours that I used are as follows:


Once finished I stamped the butterflies and repeated the process of colouring and fussy cutting. I also added clear Wink of Stella to the butterflies, just to make them shimmer and shine in the light.
The pretty little butterflies are held in place with glue dots.

I finished my card by grouping some pretty rhinestones down the left side of the card, this helped bring some balance and symmetry back.  

I do hope you have enjoyed this project today.
