Merry Monday, y’all! I decided to try “Merry” instead of “happy”. Yes, I know it’s practically the same thing, but…I’m just trying something different!
If you joined me last night for my video tutorial/workshop, thank you! We had 4 or 5 ladies making a card along with me on a Facebook Live video. I hope y’all had fun – I know I did! And you got to sort of meet Finn! 🙂 If you didn’t get to watch the video…here’s a link to it on YouTube!
This one uses the Basket Builder Bundle and a little bit of Swirly Scribbles. Take a look-see:
This is the card I made last night – it’s got the Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine that’s not retired! 😉
My layout was inspired by the challenge over at CAS(E) This Sketch:
And my color scheme is from the My Favorite Things color challenge..
I started by embossing a Whisper White panel in the Petal Burst TIEF and then SNAILing it to an Island Indigo mat.
I used the large die in the Swirly Scribbles Framelits to make the wreath, cutting two from Island Indigo card stock. Hint – watch the YouTube video to see a card-stock-saving tip! 🙂
I adhered the two wreaths to the card front – offsetting them a little to give it a little more “oomph” – with Liquid Glue.
The carrots are from the Basket Bunch stamp set and matching Basket Builder Framelits. I stamped three carrots in Tangerine Tango ink on Tangerine Tango card stock and two in Pumpkin Pie ink on Pumpkin Pie card stock. Then I cut the carrots out with the matching die in the Basket Builder Frameltis. I also cut – at the same time, by stacking the card stock! – Pear Pizzazz carrots.
Using my Paper Snips, I cut the “tops” off the carrots and then used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the Pear Pizzazz carrots – giving us…green carrot tops! 🙂
I used Liquid Glue – on just the back of the carrot tops – to adhere three carrots at the top of the wreath. Then I tied a bow with three strands of Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a Glue Dot.
I stamped the sentiment from the Basket Bunch stamp set in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White and cut it with the little banner die in the Bunch of Banners Framelits. Then I popped it onto the wreath with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped a second Basket Bunch sentiment in Cherry Cobbler on a Whisper White panel, then I adhered the remaining two carrots with Liquid Glue.
I SNAILd the panel to an Island Indigo mat and into my Tangerine Tango card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got three little Basket Bunch carrots in Tangerine Tango/Pear Pizzazz and Pumpkin Pie/Pear Pizzazz on the front…
…and a whole bunch of them on the envelope flap. I used my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker to color all the carrots.
Et Voila! This is a quick and easy card to make using the so-cute Basket Bunch bundle and some of the oh-so-versatile Swirly Scribbles Framelits. Give the video a quick watch for some tips and tricks to make it go quick! Hope you like!

Finn’s going to be a hot dog during the summer.
I can already see it. He does pretty good in the morning when it’s cool, but in the afternoon, he’s happy to jump on the golf cart to get the mail or pu the garbage out. He’s smart, though. He finds shade to lay in whenever he can – unlike Buck who used to lay out flat on the ground with the sun baking him!
Finn also uses the pond.
Even in the morning! He’s taken to running after the frisbee, then detouring into the pond on the way back to me. He drops the frisbee, does his ponding, then (mostly!) picks up the frisbee and brings it back to me.
Dripping all the way!
Sometimes he forgets where he dropped the frisbee. Oops.
