Hello and Happy 4th of July! Hope you have a great holiday! A day off work means some time to get crafty in my stamp room so I have several projects to show you that I wanted to submit before the deadlines end.
The first is for the challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges. The theme this week is hexagons and after just receiving my new hexagon items from Stampin’ Up! I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I punched out several hexagons using the new Stampin’ Up! hexagon punch from some retired Old Olive textured card stock. I arranged those on a layer of Coastal Cabana. I pulled out the awesome sentiment from last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit and added a new Old Olive Candy Dot.
The next card I made was based on the sketch from Retro Sketches. I started out with a base of Basic Gray and added a layer embossed with the Mosiac embossing folder. I still had some Orchid Opulence cardstock laying on my desk from a previous color challenge seen HERE so I layered the main Whisper White panel on that. I pulled out the medallion stamp from the set Lacy & Lovely and stamped it three times and punched out two layers and popped it up with some dimensionals. I used the same sentiment as the above card. I really do love that sentiment =)
Ok, finally the last project for today. Today is actually my mom’s birthday so I decorated a kraft gift box from Stampin’ Up! to put a gift card in. I can remember from when I was younger that she never wanted anything red, white or blue for her birthday, so I pulled out some retired Sent With Love DSP that focuses on Pool Party and Calypso Coral. I punched out some scallops and spritz then with water to crumple them up to make a flower. I added a retired white button tied with some Calypso Coral Bakers Twine. I finally I created a little tag using the new Chalk Talk Framelits. The sentiment comes from the set Made For You. The challenge at Stampin’ Royalty is Anything Goes so I will be submitting this cute little box over there. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great holiday!
