Flowers of Tomorrow Gift Set


Happy Thursday! Today, I have a special project to show you. I didn't realize until I was editing the photos that my project actually uses one of the new Plain Jane individual stamps that will be releasing on March 8. I hadn't meant to do a sneak peek today, but since I already uploaded it as one of my Digichick hybrid projects for the month, I thought I'd share it here.


Kelleigh R. has a new Gable Box Template Set that just released, so I just had to download it and test it out. {And if you're into digi or hybrid, there's
all sorts of fun new stuff that released today at The Digichick, so be sure to check it out!} I printed out the template using some digi papers from the Strawberry Au Lait Collection by Sugarplum Paperie, making sure to print a few extras of coordinating colors, so I could make a matching gift card. I knew right away that I wanted to do a little window in the front of the gable box, so after cutting out the box and scoring my lines, I very carefully folded it so that I could cut a window with my Nestabilities Labels without cutting through the rest of the box. After I finished that, I cut a smaller label from a piece of chocolate chip and layered it behind the window, for an inner border. Next I stamped the sentiment in Timber Brown Stazon on acetate and adhered behind the chocolate chip border.


For a little stamping decoration, I added one of the silhouettes from Abundant Blessings all around the bottom in Soft Sky ink, then lightly sponged the edges with Old Paper distress ink. For embellishment I added some chocolate poly twill ribbon around the box and then layered several different prima flowers and velvet leaves {Hey Lynda, can you believe how many primas I used today???}, topping off the center with a Button Latte chocolate button. For the final touch to the box, I applied some chocolate pearls {thanks Jackie!} to the top of the box.

Once I finished, I did the fun part, separating all the blue peanut M & M's and Reese's Pieces eggs from the other colors. More than a few made it into my mouth, so they wouldn't melt in my hand! LOL Next I started in on the card. I wanted to use the same elements, so I stamped the flowers of tomorrow sentiment on the Strawberry Au Lait paper in Chocolate Chip Craft ink and embossed with clear EP. Next I stamped the silhouettes on either side of the label. I made a smaller label mask with eclipse tape by running it through with the Labels die and then masked off the sentiment and stamped over the top with the retired SU! French Script background in Soft Sky. I finished the panel with some spongin in Old Paper Distress ink, then matted with chocolate chip. Next I took the tan damask paper from the Strawberry Au Lait collection and ran it through the cuttlebug with the folder with the grass and bird (I can never remember it's name!) I didn't really want the bird, I just wanted texture, so I covered the bird up with the panel, distressed the outer edges with a paper distresser and some ink, then finished off with some more primas and a chocolate button.
