Artful Stampers Blog Hop - Olive Boughs




For today's pretty colour combo challenge, I dusted off the 'Thoughts & Prayers' stamp set.

I challenged myself to use *only* the featured colours (no white/vanilla)

(so I stretched the Linen Thread & the Candy Dots to blend in with the Tip Top Taupe ;) )

Think it turned out ok! :)



The sentiment is from 'Celebrate Birthday' & the little flowers are from the Tree Builder punch.
It is such a versatile punch!

Anyway, enough chatter from me - go enjoy the rest of the hop :)


Ooo, pretty colour combo :)

Just For You Notecards & Envelopes Boxed Gift





Just For You Gift

Stamps
Watercolor Wings Stamp Set

Paper
Whisper White Cardstock
Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes
Window Sheets

Ink
Crushed Curry Classic Stampin’ Pad
Soft Suede Classic Stampin’ Pad
Tangelo Twist Classic Stampin’ Pad

Accessories & Tools

Whisper White Baker’s Twine
Gold 1/8" (3.2 mm) Ribbon
Washi Label Punch
1/16" (1.6 mm) Circle Punch
Repurposed jewellery box
Instructions
Note: We repurposed the bottom of a jewellery box for our box, but you could create your own using Kraft Cardstock. Our box is 10 x 14 x 1.5 cm; the instructions are written for a box this size. Adjust measurements to fit your box.
  1. Ink the solid butterfly base image stamp in Crushed Curry ink, stamp off on a piece of scrap paper, and then stamp on the note card. Stamp one overlay image in Crushed Curry ink and the other overlay image and butterfly body in Tangelo Twist ink over the base image. Stamp the antenna in Soft Suede ink. Stamp the dotted strip image at the top and bottom of the card, repeating image to cover from side to side.
  2. Cut the Window Sheet to 26 x 14 cm. Score at 2.5 cm, 4 cm, 14 cm, 16 cm, and 25 cm. Fold, and then adhere ends with a strong adhesive, such as Tear & Tape Adhesive.
  3. Cut the Whisper White Cardstock with the Washi Label Punch. Starting at the left side, stamp the dots image in Crushed Curry ink on the tag, repeating without inking and moving to the right side so the colour fades. Stamp “Just for you” in Soft Suede Ink on the tag. Using the 1/16" (1.6 mm) Circle Punch, punch a hole in the left end of the tag.
  4. Slide the Window Sheet sleeve over the box. Cut a 76 cm piece of Gold 1/8" (3.2 mm) Ribbon. Wrap it twice around the box; tie it in a bow and trim the ends.
  5. Cut a 13 cm piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine. Tie it through the tag around the gold ribbon.

Artful Stampers Blog Hop - Window Scene




Hello there & welcome to another fabulous Artful Stampers Blog Hop.
It's a sketch this week.

This was a toughy! Maybe just some creative block due to school holidays?? ;)

Anyway, it reminded me of a window scene, so tried to create a wintery scene (complete with snowfall, snow on the window-sills, snow on the trees... )

Not really sure if it has jelled, but here it is! :)


My interpretation
