SU Wilda Wasabi card stock cut down to 5.5 inches x 8.5 inches and scored it at 4.25 inches. I cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock to measure 5.25 x 4
Next, I used my flexible BoBunny ruler to get the curves that I wanted for my patterned paper and tore the paper using the ruler as my guide. After inking the edges of the patterned paper and adhering it to the vanilla card stock, I stamped the tree trunks and leaves using my Stampamajig to line them up. The lighter trees were done using the stamping off technique. Finally I adhered my ribbon and stamped the sentiment.
Recently I undertook the arduous task of sorting all of my scraps. I put them in an accordion file by color. Now, my scraps are at my fingertips. And, no longer plagued by the thought of digging through the minefield that was my scrap bin, I am actually reaching for my scraps and saving paper (and money!) at the same time.
Ingredients: Stampin' Up! card stock (Wild Wasabi and Very Vanilla) and patterned paper; Stampin' Up! (Wild Wasabi) and Anna Griffin (brown) ink; Trendy Trees stamp; Bobbin Ribbon; BoBunny ruler and Stampamajig.

I don't have a grass stamp, so I used the tulip leaves from Stampin' Up!'s Spring Garden set. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create the grass in the basket. I popped the basket using foam squares to give the card some dimension. Finally, I added the butterfly using the two layers I described in this post: http://eterno-lyyours.blogspot.com/2009/01/quick-post.html.

Ingredients: American Crafts cardstock; Basic Grey patterned paper and sticker embellishments; Autumn Leaves stamps; VersaMark and Colorbox inks; Martha Stewart (snowflake) and Stampin' Up! (curly label) punches; American Crafts Thickers; pearls from Michael's.
