I made a CAS card with a cute little basket using the Easter Labels set and Easter set.

For my CAS card, I used some scrap paper from my stash and created these banners. I then sewed over the banner.

My bunny can be found from the new Easter Labels set. My sentiment is from the Easter Blessings stamp set. I then cut out my image using the Fancy Labels 1 die.


I purchased my basket from the Silhouette store. I then used the grass from the Mason Jar Add On III and added my Easter eggs and bunny. I created my label from the Easter Labels set.

I hope you enjoyed today’s cards! I have a few more cool photos of some bugs that I took in our backyard.

Here is a photo of a huge prey mantis on my son’s window. This one was bigger than my hands! I didn’t want to get any closer to it for a better photo!

I hope you have a great weekend and have time to play in the challenges to win some great prizes from Inspired by Stamping! We look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations!

    Hi Joanna! What a gorgeous CAS card and basket! I always love your cards!! The stick bug looks a lot like a praying mantis but different colors. Awesome!

    My oldest daughter loves stick bugs, and always asks me if we could have some. I guess I keep go on saying no, they are somehow cute -but I prefer furry friends 🙂 Beautiful basket and I love the card you made, you have so many beautiful stamps and the stitching is such a pretty detail 🙂 Thank you for sponsoring us this month, and designing with us 🙂

    It’s a good thing you make beautiful cards because you have some major creepy looking bugs! Though I do have to say the stick 2 are pretty cute together! 🙂
