Welcome to the Inky Friends Blog Hop where we are each showcasing a product from the Occasions Catalog


If you are starting here, a big warm welcome – and if you are already hoping in order, you will have arrived from the wonderful Mary who just showed you her beautiful projects using Picture Perfect Birthday.

I am showing you some things that I have made using the Picnic with You stamp set and coordinating dies and I absolutely LOVE them because they are so versatile!

First up is a little 3-D Nugget Treat Box…


I wanted to show you the beautiful sentiment stamps you get in this set and how you can easily use them as the focal point on your project with the flowers surrounding it.

See the embossing on this cute box?  It is a BRAND NEW embossing folder called Basket Weave that you can get for FREE as part of the second phase of Sale-a-bration beginning February 16th!

Here is a look at the side…I made the belly band using paper from Bubbles & Fizz DSP and wrapped a piece of pretty Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped Ribbon around it…


The flowers were stamped and die cut out using coordinating dies from Picnic Basket Builder Framelits making it quick and easy to achieve a look like this.

What’s inside?  Pretty paper wrapped Hershey Nuggets, again using papers from Bubbles & Fizz DSP – I love these bright colors!  In case you are wondering you can fit up to 8 Nuggets in this box…


Come back on Monday for full details, the Supply List plus a FREE printable/downloadable Project Sheet showing you exactly how to make this Nugget Treat Box from one sheet of cardstock – it’s so easy!

Next is another 3-D item – a candy holder that I created using the basket stamp and matching die…


The basket literally holds the tube of candies in place and on this treat you can see another one of the pretty sentiments you get in this stamp set.

I stamped the basket twice and put those images back to back and used a thin strip of strong adhesive tape to hold them together on each side edge…


I then filled a 2×8 Cellophane Bag with M&Ms and tied a piece of Old Olive Sheer Ribbon around it and finished with a cute bow…


And to dress it up a bit I stamped the tag using another sentiment stamp from Picnic with You and cut it out with my 1 1/2″ Circle Punch.

On Monday I will have full details, the Supply List plus a FREE printable/downloadable Project Sheet showing you exactly how to make this!

And finally my card…I wanted to make a bright and vibrant card and this is the perfect set of stamps to do that with…


Because the flowers, butterfly and stems are solid images you can quickly and easily put together a pretty card like this…

This is such a fun basket full of flowers – I stamped the flowers and stems and die cut them out and popped them just behind the basket…


Doesn’t it make you happy looking at it?  I love that sweet butterfly…


ALL of the dies and the stamp used on this project are from the Picnic With You Bundle that you can find on pg 6 of the Occasions Catalog or by clicking HERE

Did you know you also get a die to texture that basket?  You can see it in the bundle picture below but here I have die cut & embossed the basket instead of stamping and then die cutting it – see the cool woven texture it gives that basket – and the best bit?  The weave die fits inside the basket die so you cut & emboss it all at once!


BUY THEM TOGETHER as the Apron of Love Bundle to save yourself 10%!  Find the Bundle in the Supply List at the end of this post.

Remember I mentioned the Bundle where you get 10% off?  Well here it is – the Picnic With Love Bundle of Stamps & Dies and this is what you get in it:
