Welcome to our last June Artisan Wednesday Wow hop! This month has just flown by…much to fast for me! We are showing all the details of our projects from the Stampin’ Up Facebook June Showcase. If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. If you are starting here, just continue around using the next buttons until you get back to me.
As I approach the end of my tenure on the Artisan Design Team I can’t help but become a little sentimental. I guess it seems natural that I should use this fun new High Five set to show how I feel about the team and Stampin’ Up as a whole. Yes…You’re Fabulous! Yes, you!! From supporters of our weekly hops to our team’s home office supervisors to the amazing and talented team itself…you are all fabulous in my eyes!!!
To create this box, I use a Kraft Gift Box and stenciled on the circles in Soft Suede. I actually used a stencil from the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit but you could easily use the new Dots & Stripes Decorative Mask too. I attached a Tea Lace Doily to the top and wrapped around some 1-1/4″ Burlap Ribbon (hot glued underneath the lid to secure it). Then I started playing with the tag. Do you see how perfectly the tag and the box match??!! That new Kraft paper is the perfect go-with on our boxes! I stamped the dotted oval and cut it out with the Ovals Framelits. The sentiment is stamped in Lost Lagoon. For the feathers, I took the vertical stamp from High Five and stamped it in Soft Suede and Lost Lagoon onto Naturals Ivory Card Stock. I just cut a feather shape from it and added a few snips on the edges to give them a feather feel. I cut the same shape by hand out of the Champagne Glimmer Paper and added a few cut outs on the edges. They are attached together using a gold Mini Metallic Clothespin. Since I could not send one of these to all of you (*smile*), I chose instead to use it to hold a teacher gift. I created a small note card for my son to sign and added in a gift card. Perfect for all that she did this year!
Okay, off to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber. I can’t wait for you to see what she has created! Make sure you hop around the whole loop to take a look at beautiful creations by the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!
