Blossoming Basket is part of a Bundle that is available to get for free with a qualifying order. It comes with a gorgeous, new Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder called Basket Weave. This is one of the folders that make a deeper impression in the cardstock than a normal Embossing Folder. If you place a $100 order you can get both of these items for free during Sale-a-bration.
To make this card, I first stamped the basket in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I wanted to use my Stampin’ Blends which are alcohol based so you need to use a water-based ink so it doesn’t smear. Memento is a water based ink. Next I colored the roses using the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. Then I added a little color around the outside of the petals using the Light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. When I was younger, my father was a terrific gardener. He had the most beautiful gardens. One of them was filled with beautiful roses. His favorite (and mine) was a rose called Peace. This rose had yellow petals with a pink around the edges. I decided to fill the basket with Peace roses.
Next I colored the basket using the Light and Dark Smoky Slate Blends. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Beautiful Bouquet.

Oh, Susan – I love the Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight together. Your coloring is awesome. (Love the Peace roses; your dad would be proud!)
Gorgeous colouring of the roses, Susan! I love the added Calypso Coral to create the Peace roses; I’m sure your Dad would approve! 🙂
