Papertrey Ink Tulip Time and Sue Wilson Easter Basket flower basket birthday card


Hello friends and welcome to another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. This time we are looking forward to seeing you pull out your dies and or stencils to create something for our gallery.

I have an old friend with a spring birthday and I made this card for her, but it could just as easily be an Easter or Mother's Day card with a different sentiment.

I used an old Sue Wilson die for the frame. As well as die-cutting the shape, this die (Classic Adorned Squares) debosses the pattern into the card. The basket is also from Sue Wilson and is called Easter Basket from her Kinetic collection. I used the die to create a flat basket for this project but you can make a full basket with it too.

The tulips are from Papertrey Ink's Tulip time stamps and dies, and I added several foliage sprigs from My Favorite Things as I arranged everything in the basket. A few clear Nuvo Drops finished it off.

My talented Teammates have lots of inspiration over on the ATSM blog and you can link up your entry there too. The lovely Julie is making a welcome return as our Guest Designer this month too.

I'd like to play along at

Thanks for stopping by.

My tulips are still in tight bud after the recent cold snap but yours look so sunny and fresh.
It does feel a little weird being back as GD after so long on the team but nice all the same. You reminded me to register with the new group about P Sunny, so thanks. :)
