Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop: Basket of Botanicals

Hello friends!  Welcome back for another Artisan Design Team blog hop - we're ready for a trip around the world!  Please don't hesitate to use your browser's translate button as you visit each of us.  With an international team of 20, there are a few languages on this trip!

This week's theme is May Flowers.  The Botanical Builders framelits were calling my name, but I wanted something a little different than a card.  After some playing and some brainstorming, I decided on a basket full of flowers - perfect for a centrepiece, party decor, or even a place-marker at the table!

The Berry Basket Bigz Die and your Big Shot machine make this basket super easy - stuffed with a little bit of styrofoam (I used a ball that was cut in half) and armed with your hot glue gun, this pretty piece can be whipped up in no time flat!  Some pretty rhinestones add a touch of glam, and a sentiment tag completes the whole project. 

Soooo much of what you see here is retiring REALLY soon - including the Berry Basket die, a couple of the colours, and the patterned paper - so please be sure to hop over to my online store (linked below) and stock up before it's gone!

Now let's fly over to Steffi in Germany and see what she has for us today!  

Thanks so much for joining us today - see you again soon!



  1. This bouquet is even better than one from the florist! It doesn't need to be watered and it's prettier. Love it, Shannon!

  2. I just love this Shannon! Such a gorgeous little project. What a great way to showcase those flowers!

  3. This is so amazing. I love every detail.

  4. Shannon, it is so easy to see where you got the name for your blog. You have such a way with color and this berry basket filled with beautiful flowers is absolutely amazing!

  5. Your project is lovely. And thanks for the yearbook pages Rachel sent me.
