First I want to share a pretty card I made for my friend (and new downline!) Becky for her workshop last weekend. She had a wonderful party with lots of her best stamping friends.
I used the new Wild About Flowers stamp set and two of our new In Colors. Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, and Pink Pirouette with Whisper White. The greeting is from the 'You've Got This' stamp set. I'll be posting a video next week on this card.
When I received the new Cotton Paper assortment in my pre-order my first idea was to make a punched 3d flower with it. I added it to a one of our treat boxes along with our new In Color Lace ribbon and gold 1/8" ribbon.
I used our Medallion punch to punch out 10 flowers from the Watermelon colored Cotton paper This paper is similar to tissue paper but it's strong! It doesn't tear or rip as easily. I poked a hole through the center of all of the punched layers and inserted a brad. Then I started at the top layers and pinched and crimped them tightly. I loosened the pinching as I got further down to the the base of the flower. This is what I got!
I wanted to create a tag with the new 'You're So Sweet' Bundle that includes the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit dies. A photo of my sweet granddaughter Eliza fits perfectly behind the die-cut window. I stamped the tag with Gorgeous Grunge and Watermelon Wonder ink; stamped off first.
I have a video coming up soon showing you a few other Cotton paper flowers with the new Gift Bag punch board so stay tuned!
