Welcome to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog hop.  You have probably just arrived here from the super clever Miriam van Eyden.  Her projects always leave me feeling absolutely inspired.  If you are starting here, make sure you hit the Next button at the end of my post so you don't miss a single, awesome project on the hop. I have a couple of projects that I hope will inspire you too, featuring the gorgeous and super cute Basket Bunch stamp set.

This sweet set is perfect for any age, with a fun mix of sentiments and line art images, which also makes it perfect for colouring enthusiasts such as myself!

I have broken out my trusty sponges again to create the background behind my cut out window before stamping with a grass stamp in the set for my bunny to stand on - how ca-ute!

I used the same technique and grass stamp to create my box lid topper and then used the gorgeous Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut it out.  Look at the stitching detail!  The Stitched Shapes framelits are a must have in your crafting arsenal as far as I am concerned!  I used the Layering Squares Framelits for the scallop detail beneath.  These dies work so well together!

Basket Bunch has fast become a favourite stamp set of mine for Easter this year and I have created quite a few projects with it already.  I love the mix of fun images and sentiments.  It also has a coordinating set of Framelits - Basket Builder - which is offered in a bundle saving you 10%.  My favourite die in the whole set has to be the grass which I used along the bottom of my Clear Tiny Treat Box.

If you don't like fussy cutting then you will be pleased to know there is a die for all the eggs and the bunny too!  These tiny treat boxes are the perfect size for a small gift of chocolate, and you can see what's in them even after decorating!

Next up on the hop is Rochelle Blok.  Her gorgeous projects are always so beautiful!
