Stampin' Up Cheerful Basket Thank You Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Friday eve and welcome to another week with the Happy Thursday Inkin' Krew for another blog hop.  This week the Krew was given a theme of "Harvest."  Naturally, I thought of several stamp set however I decided to use Stampin' Up Cheerful Basket Bundle.

The card front is a panel of Stampin' Up Tea Boutique DSP adhered to a Sweet Sorbet mat with Stampin' Seal.  

I die cut a piece of Basic White with Stampin' Up Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Gathering Wheat Stamp Set using Sweet Sorbet ink.  

I created the basket with die cuts from Stampin' Up Full Basket Die Set.  I die cut a piece of Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.  I blended a little Soft Suede ink to each piece to give it a little shading.  I adhered the basket with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.   I die cut a piece of Sweet Sorbet to act as the towel in the basket.  

I blended Sweet Sorbet ink lightly on a piece of Pale Papaya card stock.  I die cut apples and leaves from the Pale Papaya and Old Olive.  I adhered leaves on the back of some of the apples with Mini Glue Dots.  I stamped the splatters from Gathered Wheat Stamp Set on the Basic White die cut with Pale Papaya ink.  I adhered the basket to the die cut with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I adhered the apples with a combination of liquid adhesive and Dimensionals.

I adhered the Basic White to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.  I adhered the card front to a Starry Sky card base.

The inside is a panel of Basic White card stock with the sentiment from Stampin' Up Apple Harvest Stamp Set stamped with Starry Sky.  I stamped the apple image with Crumb Cake ink.  I colored the image with Stampin' Blends: Soft Suede, Petal Pink, Ivory, and Sweet Sorbet.  

Thanks so much for hopping by!  Up next, Terry Lynn
