Welcome my stamping, blog hopping friends! September has arrived and that means that fall will soon be underway. This month's Creation Station Blog Hop was to highlight some new items in the Holiday Catalog. I chose one of my favorite new sets, Basket of Wishes. You can use this set for any season really, but I chose to go with fall (my FAVORITE season of all!).
This two-step, photopolymer basket set makes it so easy to fill each of the different baskets with different contents. I chose the bushel basket and filled it with pumpkins, squash and gourds. Our Stampin' Write Markers make quick of work of adding color to the image. The words, both for the background and main quote are included in this set. I simply omitted a couple of the words from the main quote as I wanted the "happy birthday" to be on the inside of the card instead.
I also made a fun little gift bag using one of our Kraft Bags, I started off my stamping some leaves from the Vintage Leaves set in Crumb Cake ink along the left hand side to mimic the the same type of background used on the card. Then I created a belly band out of Always Artichoke card stock and secured that down. This time I chose to use the wicker basket and fill it with sunflowers - the perfect fall flower! I added one die cut leaf that was sponged with Crushed Curry ink and stamped with Crumb Cake speckles from the Gorgeous Grunge set. Add a quick greeting and some sequins. Voila!
Together they make for a sweet fall ensemble. Depending on where you started on this fabulous hop, you can either go back and see what Kathy created or move along to Holly. Both are great stampers! Thanks for stopping by! Happy Stamping!
