Tattered Lace Challenge Blog Candy!!

I'm back again!!!
I'm back to show you what I made today using the Tattered Lace Lavish Blooms Poppy dies and Lavish Leaves.... AND....if you're still with me at the bottom of my post...An EASTER SURPRISE awaits you!!!!! ;)
Our challenge this month on the Tattered Lace challenge blog is for your project to include Lavish Blooms...and there is still time for you to join us! :)
For those of you who own any of the Lavish Blooms, you'll know that each of the flowers have three dies to them...and they're a good size! Well, I decided to see if they'd cut shrink plastic...and in what kind of detail!! I was pleasantly surprised...the large and small plain ones cut brilliantly as expected...and the middle sized fancy one...also FAB!!
I think if I'd given them an extra shim and another pass they would have cut all the intricate pieces right out...but...I didn't think they'd heat so well then, so I left them as they were. I coloured a couple of pieces of scroll work and the centre with Copics...shrunk them with my heat gun...and voila!! Gorgeous little flowers!!
The large plain Poppies I flicked with a Copic from the centre out...shrunk...and then blotted the back of them with white acrylic paint.

What other perfect accompaniment for these scrummy flowers, but the very lovely brand new Basket die...also from Tattered Lace. I cut two from Kraft cardstock...leaving one of them 'as was' ...and triple embossed the other with pearlised embossing powder. I then layered the embossed basket on top of the Kraft one (slightly offset) and filled it with flowers and leaves...attached them to my circular easel card and added finishing touches of ribbon...a shrink plastic bow (die comes with the basket) and a shrunk fancy poppy as a stopper. 

Now....the Easter Surprise bit....
