Get a "burst" of Color with Stampin'Up! Berry Burst Ink and Painted Seasons Bundle!

Today I'm going to show you how to Get a "burst" of Color with Stampin'Up! Berry Burst Ink and Painted Seasons bundle! But..this wasn't my original post...I was simply going to show you a lovely tag for a gift you are presenting--a bouquet of flowers, a box of chocolates, or simply a balloon--any gift is more wonderful special if you add just a touch of personalization. 

The story began using the new Sale-a-bration bundle (Painted Seasons)--the stamp & designer paper...so far, I was on track. But if you know me you know that sparkle is my middle name & it's not done til it sparkles. So after stamping that lovely flower in Berry Burst ink (this is retiring) and though awesome--I added Wink of Stella & to my utter surprise...the Berry Burst color just burst off the paper! I couldn't believe it was the same image....look at this--see the one petal on which I use the Wink? Painted seasons close up

After it dries most of the detail is still visible although, as you know, Wink does bleed the color a bit so some of the minute detail is lost. But look at the final result & let me know if you miss it! Painted seasos tag

The Four Seasons bundle (stamp set and designer series paper) is a freebie during Sale-a-bration (in effect until March 31st). The framelits (Four Seasons framelits) are for sale during Sale-a-bration.

My favorite is still Powder Pink but then I'm always going to pick pink! But I have fallen in love with all the others too--see how well they all blend together...don't leave any of them out of your color pallette.

When the full retiring list comes out (usually in April) some of these products will be out of stock overnight. You can be smart in getting yours now before they are gone from the shelves...in fact some of these are already on the back order list. If you get yours ordered now, you'll still be able to get these when the supply is replenished. Once these go "out of stock" you won't be able to order them any longer.

This is a great time to stock up because Sale-a-bration will still be in effect for 3 weeks...you can still earn those freebies while replenishing your supplies of these outgoing In Colors.

Transform the Stampin'Up! Sweet Cup into an Easter Basket

Today I'll show you how to Transform the  Stampin'Up! Sweet Cup into an Easter Basket!  Take a look!

The sweet cup does most of the work for you--usually trying to construct a round box or basket is a bit tricky--when I looked at the Sweet Cups the first time I thought they would make an amazingly cute Easter basket with minimal work. EAch pack of cups contain 10--great price! Easter basket sweetie cup

I'll give you the directions below and following that will be the supply list. Click on the Shop Now button or on one of the product images and you'll be in my store to order the supplies you need to create these cuties.

Directions:

1. You'll need to sacrifice one of the Sweet Cups to get a pattern for the designer paper. Very carefully open up the side seam of one cup and cut out the bottom (you may want to save this in case you need it for a pattern for another project). What is left is the side of the cup--lay this out on the Butterfly Gala designer series paper (I used the tiny butterfly design). Trace the patter onto the DSP with a pencil and cut out with your Paper Snips. Attach this to the base of another Sweet Cup using Tear & Tape (Item #138995).

2. With your Paper Snips cut out the top of one Sweet Cup lid...use the tips of the scissors. Then  set the lid rim (what is left after cutting out the top) on top of the decorated cup.

3. Attach approximately 22" Calypso satin ribbon to the rim with Tear & Tape. Tie a bow with the two ribbon ends.

4. Cut 3/4 X 11" thick Very Vanilla cardstock; using 11" Calypso Coral cardstock and the Decorative Ribbon punch--punch the ribbon and adhere it to the vanilla piece with liquid glue. Add liquid glue to about 2" on the good side of this "handle" and stick it inside the cup (let this dry a few minutes before trying to hold the basket by the handle). Easter basket - handle

Your basket is ready for the sweets! Enjoy!
