Good morning and happy Friday before a three day weekend! I have a very nice evening with my friend Sandy last night. We had some delicious Greek food for dinner and then we converted Wheel Mount and Wood Mount Stamps to Clear Mount. I will definitely used my “Wheel” stamps a lot more now that it will be easier to ink them up!
I wanted to take a minute to than Lesley from Freshly Made Sketches. I have an awesome new badge as I am no longer a Perfect Princess but a Perfect Prince! I love playing along with all of the lovely ladies every week and I was proud to display my badge before but am even prouder now! Thank you again so very much!
Today’s post is an ensemble that I created for a friends birthday. It consists of a card, box and initial magnet. The card starts off with a base of Rose Red Card Stock. I stamped the images from Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set in Rose Red, Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Gumball Green on Whisper White. Before I mounted the stamped piece of Whisper White to the card I used Sticky Strip to adhere a piece of Gumball Green 3/8″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon across the middle. The greeting is from the Perfect Punches Stamp Set and is stamped in Wisteria Wonder, punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch and mounted to a piece of Wisteria Wonder that is punched out with the Decorative Label Punch and mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Some butterflies form the Beautiful Wings Embosslit in Wisteria Wonder and Rose Red complete the card.
Next up we have the box that I created using my Simply Scored and some Rose Red and Gumball Green Card Stock. I stamped an image from the Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set in Perfect Plum twice across the middle. The paper bow is created using 1/2″ strips of Wisteria Wonder stamped with the happy birthday from the Family Reunion Stamp Set. I adhered a Vintage Faceted Designer Button with a Basic Jewels Rhinestone in the middle to the center of the bow. Another butterfly with some more Basic Jewels Rhinestones completes the box.
Finally we have the magnet. I purchased the magnet from a discount store. Some Whisper White Card Stock is stamped with another image from the Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set in Gumball Green. The letter N is from the Lovely Letters Alphabet and is stamped in Perfect Plum, punched out with the 1″ Square Punch and mounted to a piece of Rose Red that I punched out with the Curly Label Punch and used the Essential Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool along each side. Some more butterflies finish off the magnet. For some added interest I also stamped the tissue paper with the Summer Silhouettes Stamp set in Rose Red and Wisteria Wonder.
My friend loved her birthday card and gift and I hope that you enjoyed it too! Thank you for swinging by today and I hope that your Friday is a good one.
