Red Lagoon Cake

Hello Friends!

It’s color challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary! At first I thought it was going to be a REAL challenge but then I remembered my lovely Neutrals Color Collection DSP and it came to the rescue and everything else fell into place. 🙂

Always

I used my new favorite stamp set, Friendly Wishes, for the sentiment. I folded the Dotted Lace Trim in half and tied it in a knot. I stamped using the Flower Shop and Beautiful Bunch sets onto Lost Lagoon card stock with Craft Stampin’ Ink and used the coordinating punches. Was that a run on sentence?

As I type my toddler is having  a fit and I can’t hear myself think! Ha! This post has to be short for the sake of sanity!! Come play along and get more inspiration at Create with Connie and Mary!

Because I Just Can’t Stop!

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!

Happy Hump Day!

Hello fellow crafters! I’ve got a new card for you. I finally got the Hardwood background stamp and was itching to use it. I stamped it in craft white and applied it to the new Blackberry Bliss card stock. The sentiment is from the Something To Say stamp set and the flowers on the tag are from the coordinating punch set.

I LOVE the burlap ribbon. I am such a pack rat and save every scrap. I had a tiny piece of ribbon that was really too small to use (this did not stop me from keeping it!) so I tore it in shreds and tied it around the Hello Honey ribbon.

The flower on the bottom right was made using the Pansy and Petite Petals punches. Think I’m flower happy? Oh yeah! 😉
