Basket for You - Hostess Set

I think the selection of Hostess Exclusive Stamp Sets in the Annual Catalog is great.  They are discounted for anyone either hosting a workshop or ordering at least $150 in product either on their own or with a few friends.  My card today uses the "Basket for You" stamp set, and I kept my image simple with just stamping and no additional coloring, but if you wanted to take it to the next level you can use Blender Pens to give the flowers and basket a personalized look.  

My card base of Daffodil Delight Card Stock was embossed with the new Seaside Embossing Folder. I know most people will use this embossing folder for a water background, but I just turned it the other way to make the wavy lines instead.  I thought it added a nice bit of texture to the paper and went with the overall design of the card.

I added a layer of Crumb Cake Card Stock and a piece of Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper to my card and then stamped my image onto a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock using Crumb Cake Ink.  My sentiment coordinates with the Bunch of Banners Framelits and are so easy to cut out.  I placed this onto my basket with Dimensionals to finish my card. 

The following were used:
