A little basket, a treat to make!

This Little Treat Basket is easy to make and joy to embellish! I made this little basket using two Clear Dollar Stamp sets that will be released on January 1st. "Spring Critters" stamp set has the little chicken that is so cute with the sentiment" Hoppy Easter" and the stamped egg background was done with eggs from the "Spring Trimmings" stamp set. The eggs have two different separate egg design stamps to make different looking eggs, and is so cute and so fun to create with! I just love it!

Stamp Sets Used: Clear Dollar Stamps "Spring Trimmings" & "Spring Critters"
Cardstock and Papers: Colormates Light Hawaiian Blue Cardstock, Paper Trey White Cardstock
Inkpads: Stampin' Up! Barely Banana and Summer Sun Inks, Stazon Black Ink
Markers: Marvy Multicolor Brush Markers
Accessories and Embellishments: Scor-It, Regular Round and Scalloped Round Nestabilities Dies, Stampin' Up! Small Oval Punch, Stampin' Up Horizontal Slot Punch, Basic Grey Black Mini Brad, Yellow Moonglow Brad, Offray Yellow Grosgrain Ribbon
Coloring Medium: Marvy Brush Markers, Signo Black Gel Pen
Special Techniques: Background Stamping

DIRECTIONS:
This tiny treat basket is a great idea for table place setting and a great take-home gift for the children after Easter dinner! I borrowed the idea from Cambria Turnbow, who has a great step-by-step tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers Community. For details follow this link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/tiny_treat_basket/

The only thing that I did differently is that I background stamped the 5"x5" cardstock and colored it with Marvy Multicolor Markers before scoring. I stamped the sentiment onto Paper Trey White Cardstock, punching out with the Stampin' Up! Small Oval Punch, and then lightly sponging with Stampin' Up! Barely Banana ink around the oval edge, and then more heavily with Stampin' Up! Summer Sunk ink around the edge, and securing it to the front Chicken Round Medallion with a Basic Grey Black Mini Brad. This is very easy and fun project to do!

That chick cracks me up and covering the patties was just a perfect fit for them! Love the little carry box for them too!
