Hello crafting friends!
There is a fun sketch this week at Create with Connie and Mary! I brought out my favorite color for this one. MELON MAMBO and a lot of it!
Here is my take:
I haven’t played with my fringe scissors in awhile and decided to get them out. I also decided to play with the tried and true uni-ball Signo gel pen. I used it to draw dots on my Bermuda Bay card stock. The white shows up great! I decided to use the Honeycomb embossing folder, I felt that it mimicked the shapes in the Back to Black DSP nicely. I used the new hand held stapler to attach my 1/4″ cotton ribbon and bling. 😉
I used Sassy Salutations for my sentiment. Just felt that it paired nice with my sassy pink. 🙂 Come play this week’s sketch challenge here!
Here is another shot of the white ink from the uni-ball Signo pen on the Bermuda Bay:
Hope everyone has a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
Hey Hey! A few posts ago I shared a card that I made for my lovely neighbor. Well, I just couldn’t stop at a card. I saw a great box tutorial by fellow demonstrator Vicky Hayes that you can see here.
However, I did change up the dimensions on the lid. I wanted both the lid and the pretty box underneath to show. I made the box and put some wine tags in it because she makes her own wine and gives bottles as gifts.
I stamped my flowers (Flower Shop Set) in Calypso Coral and my go to for all things pretty, MELON MAMBO! 😉 The ribbon is the 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon on page 207 of the Stampin’ Up! annual catalog.
The stamp on the tag is from the hostess set “Hello There”. I love that stamp set!! By using the “For You” stamp on the tag she can give the bottles for any occasion and it will work.
I’m happy to say that she did love it and she sent me a picture of a tag on one of her bottles! What a fun gift!
