Hi!  Welcome to my blog and the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Sale A Bration Favorite.  The Stamping Sunday design team is excited to be having our first hop of the new year!  And of course, we can’t wait to share our creations with some Sale-A-Bration favorites.  Today, we’re welcoming Andrea Tracy Tucker as our guest designer!  To kick off the new year, we’ve added a Tutorial Bundle.  The Bundle includes tutorials from designers on both the Stamping Sunday design teams.  More about that below or on my Tutorials page.  For now, lets get this hop started!!

Did you notice the Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes in the Occasions Catalog?

That’s what I’ve used for the base of my project.

I added strips of Painted with Love specialty designer paper and Petal Passion designer paper.

Then, I added a layer of Berry Burst Metallic Edge ribbon.

I even prettied up the envelope.

For my focal image, I used a Layering Oval and cut my Whisper White before stamping.

Then, I stamped my outline image from Lots of Lavender.

To color the flowers, I used the layering image in the stamp set.

To get the variation in color, I inked the stamp in Powder Pink.

Then, I used a Sponge Dauber to add hints of Melon Mambo.

Next, I used Berry Burst to fill in the ribbon.

Tip

To make it easier to stamp the leaves, I laid all of the leaf and stem stamps over my image.

Then, I used a clear block to pick up the stamps.

Once I had inked with Wild Wasabi, I could stamp them all at the same time!

Project 2

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Favorite - Lots of Lavender gift box from theartfulinker.com

For my second project, I created this little gift box using one of the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes.

I cut the Whisper White panels to 1-15/16″.

I stamped the floral bough image twice on each panel.

Using the rose layer, I inked in Powder Pink then rocked it in Melon Mambo for some fun shading.

There are even layer stamps for the leaves and berries!

The box is tied with Old Olive Sheer ribbon with a bit of Silver Mini Sequin Trim tucked in.

On the top of this sweet little box, I added a Clear Faceted Gem.

Wouldn’t this make a beautiful wedding favor?

      Thank you Cheryll! I was so pleased when I realized I could stamp all the leaves at once — couldn’t wait to share the short cut.
