Here we are at Day 2 of the previews for the Waltzingmouse Stamps September release. Today I am sharing some creations made using the Bountiful Baskets Additions set, a coordinating set to the fantastic Spring Baskets. Bountiful Baskets contains two basket images and coordinating seasonal fillers, so even if you don't have Spring Baskets, it is sure to be a must-have!
Starting off with the poinsettia image.. I love poinsettia, especially white (off-white?) ones. Bill and I were married just before Christmas and we had white poinsettias lining the aisle. So pretty.
Anyway, I wanted to show you that all the images in this set coordinate with the existing basket images in Spring Baskets. I thought my poinsettias would be perfect for the tall, fancy basket. I colored my images with Copic markers and went over the flowers with a Stardust gel pen. I put just a bit of sparkle on the leaves and used an Aqua Painter to spread it around - it just adds some subtle sparkle. There's a new background set there too!! You'll be seeing lots of the Music Background from me.
Flower close-up.. can you see the sparkle?
And another card before I go.
Some birthday goodies tucked inside a little picnic basket. I paper pieced the gifts using patterned paper from the Crate Paper Restoration Collection. YUM-O. The background bits are also from that collection. I added some glitter and stamped the sentiment repeatedly to create my background mat. Happy colors!

Have a great day!
