Stampin Friends March Blog Hop - Easter

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Easter Blog Hop.  Don't forget to hop all the way through so you can see everyone's wonderful creations!  
This month we have two amazing guest hoppers, so be sure and check them and their blogs out.

Let's get started with my projects...
I actually made the little 3D basket first and then the card, but we will start with the card first.
 I wanted my card for the hop to look like an Easter Basket so I sketched out what I wanted it to look like.  After doing that starting with Crumb Cake cardstock I used our Oval Framelits for the handle, and then added some length to the sides.  I then embossed the basket itself using the Festive Emboss folder.  I then used the Sweet Sugarplum Stampin Write marker to add some color to the streamers on the basket.  I layered 2 strips to the top and bottom of the basket for depth and then sponged all over with Crumb Cake Ink.  I added colorful eggs I had cut out again using the Oval framelits.  
The little basket was made using the Basket Builder Framelit dies.
To make the basket 3D  I cut out 2 of the baskets and then connected them together with a piece of cardstock making it a real little basket.  I then sponged all over with Crumb Cake ink.  I used Sweet Sugarplum for the accent colors.  I am so glad you stopped by and now it's time to continue on the hop.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!  
Continue on the hop by clicking on the names below.  To help you remember where you are I'm Twila Davis.  Happy Hopping!!!
