Easter Baskets for Easter Monday

Hi Everyone!  Wanted to pop in here and say Happy Easter (better a little late, than never, right?!)   I also have some fun basket projects to share with you . . . and while these are perfect for Easter, I'm thinking they would make fun spring or Mother's Day treat holders as well . . . or, if you changed the color schemes, they'd be great at other times of the year as well!

All of these projects are made with the Berry Basket Bigz Die.  And, for each of these, after die cutting, I embossed the basket sides with the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Here are a couple close ups of one of the baskets so you can see the detail added by the embossing:

And, here's the full basket:

This basket is made of Pink Pirouette Card Stock.  The butterfly embellishment is Very Vanilla Card Stock, die cut with the Butterflies Thinlits Dies (currently out of stock, but due back in the warehouse around Apr 8th . . . so hopefully in time to order with the Free Shipping Stampin' Up! is offering on orders of any size from Apr 6th to Apr 10th (excluding expedited orders).   The pretty pink rose in the center of the butterfly is cut out from the Blushing Bride rosette trim in the Artisan Embellishment Kit (which also appears to be currently out of stock . . . hopefully returning soon!).

The next baskets I created for hostess gift and doorprizes at a workshop during Sale-a-Bration, and filled with some mini notecards, which I stamped with images from Butterfly Basics and Painted Petals.

This basket is made of Wisteria Wonder card stock.

 The note cards I stamped using Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz inks:

Here is another Pink Pirouette basket:

The note cards in this one are stamped with Strawberry Slush and Pear Pizzazz:

This So Saffron basket is decorated with a flower created using the Flower Patch stamp set and coordinating Flower Fair Framelits:

The note cards are stamped with Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz inks.  The butterfly is stamped in Elegant Eggplant:

Hope you enjoyed these!  I have another variation on these baskets to show you soon, too!

Thanks for visiting!
