ICS Blog Hop Welcome Spring!

Hello and welcome to the March ICS Blog Hop!  This month we are welcoming Spring.

I tried a technique (I've seen on Pinterest in a few different places) using the Stampin' Write Markers with a Blender Pen and a white colored pencil to create an alcohol like effect:

The mini basket was made using the Berry Basket Bigz L Die and a YouTube video I CASE'd from Snippets and Pretties:

I've made a half-basket before using the die, but had never thought to go even smaller.  Check out all the pretty baskets they've made!

I used the following Stampin' Up! products for this card:

Melon Mambo, Old Olive and Whisper White Cardstock
Watercolor Paper
English Garden Designer Series Paper
Versamark Ink Pad
Melon Mambo Ink Pad
Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Marker
Old Olive Stampin' Write Market
Blender Pen
Flower Shop Stamp Set
Number of Years Stamp Set
Pansy Punch
Extra-Large Oval Punch
Berry Basket Bigz L Die
Stampin' Dimensionals

Other:  Yellow shreddie

Don't forget about the great joining deal Stampin' Up! has during Sale-A-Bration!  Contact me for details!
