Basket Full of Spring ~ Dies R Us

Hello, hello!  There's a new challenge starting up over at Dies R Us and the theme is "Anything Goes".  

I recently purchased this Woven Basket Pop Up Easel die set by Poppystamps from Dies R Us and since spring is upon us, I knew I wanted to use it to welcome in the season.  The die has open areas where you can ink through to add the woven design and handle.  I ink blended the background using Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron DOX inks.
I filled the basket using the grass that's included in the basket set and  Leabilities Young Birds, which was purchased during a Special Order Event.  

While I had the basket die out, I made another card, filling it with Christmas goodies.
What a wonderfully, versatile basket this will be!  I can see it filled with all kinds of seasonal goodies.  Keep your eyes open for another post using this amazing die, coming soon!

Here's a list of links to the products I used, 
or they will bring you directly to Dies R Us where you can sign up for the newsletter to be notified about the Special Order Events:

Be sure to visit the Dies R Us Challenge blog to see more inspiration and join in on the fun! 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Both baskets are awesome! Nothing like a Spring Basket full of 'peeps' and a holiday basket full of yummy goodies, both are very tweet and sweet!!
