This photo is so beautiful and inspiring, that I got a bit carried away with my projects. Not to mention that I received my April order this week and I just had to use some of my new stamps and dies!
First up is a sweet little gift bag that I will use as a thank you for teacher appreciation week. I was anxious to use my new Enclosed: Apple die and the Shaker Shapes Pencil die and decided why not use the color combo from the inspiration photo and use my project for the Blog Hop. Here are the products I used: Enchanted Evening, Smokey Shadow, and Classic Kraft cardstock, Mini dot vellum, Pink patterned papers by Heidi Swapp, a Raspberry Fizz button, and baker's twine. The pencil was adhered to the bag using scor-tape, but I decied to created a tag from the apple and simply clip it on with a miniature clothes pin. This was such a fun project! I plan to stuff the bag with shreaded paper and insert a gift card. We will be making more of these in various color combinations since my daughter actually has more than one teacher.
Next, is a simple "Think of You" card. I was inspired by the white vase from the inspriation photo to create a background of embossed dots. I used Enchanted Evening, Stamper's Select White, Raspberry Fizz, and Sweet Blush cardstock. The sentiment and flower are from the new Graceful Greetings stamp set. I used Rapsberry Fizz and Spring Moss ink.
Lastly, I made these mini thank you cards. Again, I took my color cue from the inspiration photo. I used Enchanted Evening and Hibiscus Burst cardstock and polka dot and chevron vellum. The flowers and leaves are cut using Tinsel and Tags dies and stamps with the Tinsel and Tags Sprigs stamps. I used Spring Moss, Hibiscus Burst, and Spring Rain ink. The banner was cut using a Keep it Simple Frame die and the thank you sentiment is from Heart-2-Heart #3.
I hope you enjoyed viewing these projects and that they have provided a bit of inspiration to you today. Thanks for stopping by and follow me for additional card creations and crafty project inspiration!
