Spring Has Sprung Basket

Hello my crafty friends!  Today I have instructions for the last of my projects from the Spring Stamp Release Party! 

The stamped sentiment is from my new Butterfly Kisses stamp set.  I cut the basket at 5 inches from the new Tags Bags Boxes & More 2 cartridge. 

The patterned paper I used on the flowers is all from My Minds Eye.  The green is from Bazzill and the cream is from Close to My Heart.

The flowers were all cut from the Flower Shoppe cartridge:
Cut 2 of each size flower (Button #12) so you can layer the petals - 2", 1.5" and 1.25".
For the centers, cut one of each size (Button #4 on the first row) - 2", 1.5" and 1.25".  I used the Petal Roller from imaginesque to roll the centers and shape the petals.  Then I inked them with Antique Linen and Walnut Distress Inks.

I stamped tiny flowers from the Butterfly Kisses stamp set along the basket handle.  I also matted it with green and then cream (trimmed with scallop edge scissors) before attaching it to the basket.

I wanted the grass to be dimensional so I trimmed them with the Martha Stewart fringe scissors and then inked them with green ink from Close to My Heart.

Here are some pictures of the Martha Stewart Fringe Scissors.
