Mama Elephant Stems and Sprigs and Sue Wilson Basket birthday card


Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. Yay - it's our 10th birthday so we are in party mode and I'd like to thank Kylie for all her work to keep this awesome challenge going!

This time we want you to make your mark with any colouring medium you choose, so break out your supplies and have some fun.

I came up with this 5 x 7 card.

I'm really liking teal at the moment so it features in this one. I stamped, die-cut, and coloured (with Copics) a lot of little flowers and leaves from the Mama Elephant Stems and Sprigs set and arranged them in a basket cut from kraft card with a Sue Wilson die.

I placed the basket on a mat cut from the MFT Blueprints 33 die set and matted it onto a Waffle Flower scalloped rectangle die. The sentiment is from a Happy Little Stampers set and I white embossed it onto a banner shape before tying it onto the basket with some twine.

We've just got back from holiday where we spent a week in a country cottage with our daughter and her dog. We had a lovely relaxing time before coming back to empty our kitchen ready for a much-needed refurb. How could a small kitchen house so much stuff!!! I feel a good clear-out coming on.

My talented Teammies have some great cards to show you over on the ATSM blog and would be delighted to have you visit them.

I'd like to play along at

Thanks for stopping by.

Your card is gorgeous Carol! I am loving mint and light teal right now myself. This dark teal might have to go on my loving list now too. Your flowers really pop off the teal background. The basket it so pretty and you have nestled your flowers and leaves in there perfectly. A great birthday card and a great color combo! Glad you had a nice holiday with your daughter and her dog! I have a small kitchen too, small house. But I have way to much stuff as well, and need to purge...again....myself. Hugs, Brenda

I love this card. The colors are so beautiful together, and that basket is super cute. Love how you layered it with the solid behind and it gets that awesome shadow at the top.
