Fast Friday 29 - A Whole Lot of Lovely

I was instantly drawn to the gorgeous A Whole Lot of Lovely hostess set from this year's catalogue and had the perfect occasion to use it when I created a special thank you for a friend who had gone above and beyond. Because the stamped greeting is quite large and ornate, I felt the background needed to be simple, so I used the abstract side from one of the sheets from the Pretty Petals DSP stack.

You can see here that I used some bling to highlight the centre of the flowers:

And this time I didn't forget to take a photo of the inside - where I used another of the images from the stamp set - the words said it for me!

To make this project you will need:

Cardstock/Paper: Basic Black, Pacific Point, Pretty Petals DSP Stack  Stamps: A Whole Lot of Lovely (Hostess 2015/16)  Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Pacific Point, Old Olive  Tools/Accessories: Rhinestones, Stampin' Dimensionals, Silver Metallic Thread, Floral Frames Collection Framelits, 2½" Circle Punch

A la prochaine! Amitiés!

You're a Star!

I needed to make a card for a really special person to say thank you for what they had done for me in recent months, but also I had to be careful it wasn't too girly. So I took my inspiration from the bottle bag which I used for the accompanying gift.

It was a bit fiddly trying to get all the small pieces stuck down but I am pleased with the end result! And the words from the Pictogram Punches set sum up my feelings exactly! I just hope the recipient liked the card (I know he liked the bottle!)

Here's the bottle bag that inspired the card:

To make this project you will need:

Cardstock/Paper: Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Pool Party, Whisper White, Brushed Gold (retired)  Stamps: Pictogram Punches  Ink: Night of Navy  Tools/Accessories: Confetti Stars Border Punch, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Stampin Dimensionsals, Tombow glue

I hope you can see that you can take inspiration from anywhere! Remember you can order from my online shop 24/7 or if you prefer contact me directly.

A la prochaine! Amitiés!
