Hi everyone! I meant to post way before this, but my trip to Texas has been somewhat of an adventure. And that is putting it mildly.....
I had a workshop just before I left so I thought I would post what they made, and the really cute hostess gift that I made.
I LOVE the new Specialty Designer Series Paper, especially the Parisian Breeze. The texture, color, and pattern are wonderful. I used the blender pens to fill in the flowers. This is a 3 1/2 x 5 card. The size is just perfect for making up a quick card. Since we sell these note cards pre-cut and scored with envelopes ( 20 for 5.95 - 107311), it just can't get any easier than this.
Stamps: Sweet Stems, Fundamental Phrases
Ink: Black Stazon, Baja Breeze, Sahara Sand
Paper: Whisper White, Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP
Accessories: Eyelet border punch, Blender Pen, Note Cards
This was a sample I brought to show how another inexpensive set looks on these note cards. I only punched the Whisper White and left the Parisian paper squared off. The stamp set is Bella's Bloom. I stamped the flower in Baja Breeze and then stamped the sentiment over the top in Black Stazon.
This last one is the simplest. I used Rose Red and Kiwi Kiss on the flower. A set of these would make a great teachers gift!
PARISIAN GIFT BOX
The ladies at the workshop didn't make this one, but I showed them what they could put their cards in and gave this one as part of the hostess gift.
FAUX GIFT BOX
The ladies did make these during the workshop. You can find the template and instructions at Carolina's Creative Pad. I stamped the bottom of the gift box with Basic Brown and then put bleach in my aqua pen. I just painted in some of the flowers, swirls and such until I liked the look of it. This one could use a little more work....
Stamps: Bella Toile
Ink: Basic Brown
Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, & Parisian Breeze DSP
Accessories: Kraft taffeta, Aqua Pen, Eyelet border punch
Now for my favorite thing! I didn't know exactly what I was going to do, so I just sort of made it up as I went along.... I got the jar/vase for .97 at Walmart. What a deal! I had a spool of the silver wire from some craft store (I wouldn't want to name names). Add some vinyl flowers and some bling, and VIOLA!
Supplies: Home Decor vinyl flowers, Pretties Kit, 1" Rose Red dbl stitched grosgrain, Clear Rhinestones, Flower Fusion, Flower Fusion Too
