This week I am meeting with my clubs for the first time this year and what better way to celebrate than use a new hostess set??!! I love the new Silhouette Sentiments and have wanted to try punch vases for a while. Michelle Zindorf is an extremely talented Stampin’ Up demonstrator who kindly shares many tutorials. I used her Punched Vases Tutorial as inspiration for my vases. I also loved the OCC Sketch 28 and used that layout. I am so happy with the result!
As you can see, I used the sponging technique to give a shadow to the vases and then popped them up on dimensionals. My Square Lattice Embossing Folder came out again…told you that you would see it alot! The best part is that this is pretty easy to make and yet the details make it special.
Now, I had an extra surpise today. One of my new club members, Nancy, brought me a lovely bundle of cards for my Operation Write Home challenge. Just take a look at these!
How can I thank her enough for all these lovely cards?! Aren’t they pretty? She has certainly put me well on my way towards filling up a box for the OWH project.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a great rest of your week!
