Today I am showcasing the new Die-namics Picnic Basket.
The Die-namics Picnic Basket is another of the Die-namics that can be used in conjunction with the Die-namics Trapezoid Treat Box which is what I used to create my picnic basket you can see above in the scene I created.
To create my 3D scene I started with a square of designer paper which I edged using the Die-namics Grassy Edges & Factory Green card stock. I then attached this to another piece of Factory Green card stock.
Next I created my picnic basket … I used Kraft card stock and the Die-namics Picnic Basket and Die-namics Trapezoid Treat Box …. cutting 2 pieces of each. Before assembling I decided I wanted my picnic basket a little darker so brayered over the card using Kraft ink.
For my picnic basket on this scene I decided I wanted to add a lid to my picnic basket which is easy to do. I cut another piece of card 1 1/8 inches x 3 3/4 inches. I placed this piece on my Scorpal and found the centre by using the 6 inch on the Scorpal as the centre mark and then scored down a 1/4 inch on either side of the centre. (I have added black dashes on my score lines so you can see the scores.
I then die cut an extra handle from the Die-namics Picnic Basket and attached that to the centre on the back so it won’t be seen. You will also need to trim the handle (tabs) a little so it will fit into the basket.
For the handles on my picnic basket above I have them both using the same hole … so find the centre of the picnic basket and punch a hole on each side. and then thread a brad through both handles and also the side of the tab for the lid and you are done.
BTW there are score lines on the handles which help give you a good shape to your handles.
Next I stamped out the girl and her teddy from the Pure Innocence On a Picnic stamp set … leaving a small tab at the bottom of both. I cut a small slit into the base of the scene where I wanted these pieces to go and attached them both to the base.
I added the sentiment also from the Pure Innocence On a Picnic stamp set which I have stamped onto Smooth White card using Black Licorice ink. I used the Die-namics Designer Labels 4 STAX to die cut the sentiment and also added a frame around the top and bottom of the sentiment using Black Licorice card stock.
Behind the picnic basket I added the Palm Tree using the new Die-namics Palm Tree. For the tree I used Kraft card stock; Gumdrop Green card stock and Hot Fudge card stock Sponging the edges of each piece using Kraft ink and Gumdrop Green ink.
To finish off my scene I added plastic ants and some food themed erasers I have had in my stash for years.

For my second project today I created a Picnic Basket Gift box with a coordinating card.
To create the Picnic Basket I used the Die-namics Picnic Basket and the Die-namics Trapezoid Treat Box with Red Hot card stock. This time around you can see I added the handles to my picnic basket separately on each side rather than in the centre.
For my card I used the Die-namics Blueprints 4 set. The base of my card is Smooth White cardstock , the background panel uses Bubblegum card stock and is decorated using the MPD Distressed Background Blocks stamp set and Bubblegum Ink.
On the panels on the front of the card I added the same butterfly used on the Picnic Basket which is from LJD Blissful Butterflies stamp set and the Die-namics LJD Blissful Butterflies using Smooth White cardstock and Bubblegum Ink.
Here is a close up of the butterfly … you can see how I have stamped and die cut two butterflies and attached the centre of the top butterfly to the bottom one to get a 3D image.
And finally the inside of my card. I added another of the butterfly images from the LJD Blissful Butterflies stamp set which has been stamped using Bubblegum Ink. The sentiment also from this stamp set was stamped using Black Licorice ink.
