Heartfelt Creations

I just love this die for making these lovely baskets !
My friend Marisa designed the die and makes some 
stunning baskets with it! Check out her blog  HERE

To make the basket I used the following:

459222 Blossom Tool set
HCD 756 Birds and blooms die set
HCPC 3644 Birds and Blooms
HCD 757 Leafy Branch Die set
HCPC 3645 Leafy Branch
HCDP1 250 Birds and Blooms paper collection
247027 Fantastix Blending tool

Other Products Used : Promarkers Ivory, cornflower, Powder blue.
Victorian Velvet and Peeled Paint Distress inks, brown ink, 
Gems, Blending solution, glue, blue pearlised cardstock, Die cutting machine.
Spellbinders Hexagon petal Envelope die

Using the blue card stock die cut the envelope die. Cut it again using papers
from the paper pad. Adhere them together so the paper is on one side and the
blue card the other. Stamp, cut and colour the birds and small branches.
Fold the sides of the basket die cut and adhere the leaves and birds to hold
the shape together. Stamp, cut, colour and shape the flowers and add gems to their 
centres and adhere along the sides with the birds. Stamp, cut and colour the
blossoming branch. You will need three of them. Adhere one to each side of the 
basket and adhere the third to the two other die cuts to form the handle. Adhere
the birds and flowers to your handle and the project is complete.

Happy Crafting!!
