Stampin' Up Basket Bunch Spring Easter Card, Circle of Spring

Another cloudy rainy day and the rain will continue the rest of the week!  Sigh!  I can't wait for the weekend to see the sun again!

My share for today is another shaker card that I made using Stampin' Up's Basket Bunch , Birthday Banners and Circle of Spring Stamp Sets, Basket Builder, Bunch of Banners, Layering Ovals and Stitched Oval Shapes Framelits Dies and the leftover Frame piece from February's Many Happy Birthdays Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Let's take a look:

I so LOVE shaker cards and these Daffodils are so gorgeous.  Mine are almost ready to bloom.

To see how I made the Shaker Frame, click on the link below:

My Card Base is Pool Party Cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored and folded at 5-1/2" for a Top Fold Card.

I used my Project Life Corner Rounder to round the two bottom corners.

Using SU's Basket Bunch, I stamped all my Flowers on to Shimmery White Cardstock, my Birds on Whisper White and Soft Suede Cardstock and my Eggs on Whisper White Cardstock.

Using SU's Basket Builder Framelits dies, I die cut the grass from Old Olive Cardstock and then die cut all my flowers, Eggs and my Birds.

Using my SU Aqua Painter, I water colored my Daffodils with So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie Ink.

I rolled my Eggs around on top of my So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie Ink Pads to give them a colored edge.

Before adding my Shaker Frame, I estimated where my Window would show at the bottom and then adhered my Grass die cut and a Large Daffodil die cut with Mono Multi Purpose Glue. 

I laid all the rest of my Shaker Filler Elements in a rectangle on my Card Base and then adhered my Shaker Frame over the top.  Easy Peasy!

Using SU's Layering Ovals, I die cut a small Oval from Crushed Curry Cardstock and adhered it to the bottom of my Shaker Frame.

Using SU's Birthday Banners Stamp Set, I stamped my Banner in Pumpkin Pie.

Using SU's Circle of Spring Stamp Set, I masked my Sentiment Stamp and stamped the Hello in Basic Black Archival Ink.  I then did the same with my Sentiment Stamp and the word Spring.

Using SU's Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies, I die cut out the Banner and adhered the Banner over the Crushed Curry Oval with Stampin' Dimemsionals.

I stamped a bunch of Leaves and a couple Stems in Old Olive Ink onto Old Olive Cardstock and die cut them out.

I adhered the Flowers, Stems and Leaves together and to the sides of my Shaker Frame as shown in the picture above with Mono Multi Purpose Glue and a small piece of Stampin' Dimensionals under each Flower.

I adhered one of the Soft Suede Birds to the upper right corner on my Shaker Frame with a Stampin' Dimensional.

Using SU's Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, I die cut one Scalloped Oval from Crushed Curry Cardstock and one from Whisper White Cardstock.  

Using SU's Basket Bunch Stamp Set, I stamped my Sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink and adhered the Ovals together as shown in the picture above and to the inside of my card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I stamped a Bunny in Early Espresso Ink on to Early Espresso Cardstock, die cut the Bunny out and adhered the Bunny to the inside of my card as shown in the picture above with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Happy Spring!!!  I wish you lots of flowers and bright, sunny days!

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!
