I have been busy making my trades and stuff for the Fun Stampers Journey 3rd annual convention starting Wednesday in Chandler, AZ (a Phoenix suburb). But I still have one more card from the May Bloom Box to share with you.
Instead of looping the Natural Thread through an under the doilies I wrapped it around the print piece and tied it on the far right.
I also added more pearls, 1 for each doily and die cut rather than just 1 on the silver die cut.
Stamp Set: Decorative Doily (not available at this time)
Card stock: Butter Cream, Rock Candy, River Stone, Brush Silver, and Summer Romance Printed paper (ON SALE!)
Ink: Rock Candy & Whip Cream
Dies & Punches: Border Basics, Fancy Label, Decorative Doily (not available at this time), 1 1/2" Scalloped Circle Punch & Punch Handle
Embellishments: Pearls & Natural Thread
I guess I can show you my gift boxes for my 2 room mates. I don't think they follow my blog but then, I'm not saying what is in these!
I started with the Journey Advent Boxes. I've had them a while as I purchased a bunch when we had a sale on them.
I made my own twistie ties from our Licorice Sparkle Tape. I laid a length of the tape (about 5") on my work pad sticky side up. I cut a 4" piece of 24 gauge wire and laid that down the middle leaving 1/2" on each end. Then I adhered another 5" piece of the Sparkle Tape on top. I cut banner ends on the tape. Worked good but didn't hold very well. Darn, good try.
As to the decorative front, I used a current Bloom Benefit from the Spring Into Summer mini catalog, the What a Melon ATC. Unfortunately the die is still on backorder so I hand cut this after coloring with my Color Burst Pencils. I used my Sparkle Silk to add the shimmer. That stuff is SO COOL!!! I now have 3 bottles and am using it on so much! It is a dollar more than our other Silks but so worth it! It has taken the place of the Clear Wink of Stella that I "used" to use! Ok, now for the rest of the items I used:
Card stocks: Black Licorice, Whip Cream, and Backyard Party Prints 6x6 paper pad
Other: Licorice Sparkle Tape and Black Licorice Thread
I will be sharing some things at Convention but I do have Wednesday and Friday posts prescheduled. Remember, if you want to leave a comment I do moderate them and I probably will not be consistent at checking.
Also, I do have my personal special going on of a FREE ATC from my stash for the first 10 people ordering through my website. Just click on any of the product links and you'll be there!
