Hasn't this been a fun July Release? I know you've enjoyed it as much as we have in bringing it to you, but it's not over quite yet! We're so excited to bring you one more stamp set, and it's a fantastic new Birthday and Celebration set today! We think it's the cutest thing ever, and we know when you see it you'll agree!
Light it up and help those in your life to wish big! This set is perfect to send a little note of celebration in an envelope. From "cool" images to "sweet" sentiments, Pinwheels and Popsicles illustrated by Marcella Hawley is the perfect birthday stamp set! Set measures 4" by 6" and offers five main images and seven fun-filled coordinating sentiments.
For my project today, I needed a last minute card and gift bag for the two gifts for my son's teachers. So I went to the dollar store and grabbed two bright, polka dot gift bags to put their gifts in.
I started off by making two mini tags for the gift bags so I could make sure the right teacher, got the right gift.
I made two mini card bases, approximately 2 1/4 x 2 1/4, using Flourishes Classic White Cardstock. Then I stamped the cute little popsicle image from the new Pinwheels & Popsicles stamp set using my favourite ink, "Tuxedo Black" ink by Memento.
I created a quick mask and placed it over my popsicle image, I masked the edges of each card and then stamped the cute gingham back ground from the Berry Sweet Frames stamp set right over top. For one mini card I used Memento "Rose Bud" and for the other "Lilac Posies". Next I stamped my popsicle image onto some fun green paper, fussy cut each one out and adhered it to my mini card. I tied each card on using some Metallic Silver String.
First I made a A2 card base using Flourishes Classic White Cardstock. I embossed 3/4 of each card front using the a double sided embossing folder.
Then I die cut two Classic Large Ovals using Spellbinder dies, and stamped the adorable row of Chinese lanterns from the new Pinwheels & Popsicles stamp set using my favourite black ink again.
I popped each oval back inside the die and airbrushed the sky using Copics. I didn't bother to mask off my lanterns since I knew I was going to paper piece them with patterned paper.
Next I stamped each lantern twice on to scraps of fun and bright patterned papers. I fussy cut each lamp out and adhered it to the correct image.
Then I took some more scraps of the same patterned papers and cut out banners to drape below my ovals.
Viola... my gifts were finally done!!
I used the following Copic Collections for my project today:
B21, B23, Y15 and RV14.
