This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is so much fun! The challenge is to be inspired to create a 3D gift project from a card. I created a card with the Northern Hearts hostess stamp set from Stampin’ Up! This stamp set is so versatile. It’s a Christmas stamp set but can be used for Valentine’s or a birthday. I love it! This stamp set can only be earned with a minimum workshop of $150. Email me to book your workshop so you can earn this stamp set.
With Christmas around the corner I decided to create a Christmas gift set. I created the card using the bird image in a heart then thought about putting it together with a heart box. The heart box is perfect for a small gift. I purchased the heart box from a craft store and painted it with white acrylic paint. I traced the lid on Cherry Cobbler card stock, cut it out and stamped the bird image in craft Whisper White then adhered it to the top of the lid. I stamped the image with Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White card stock then cut it out banner style. I also added small half pearls, and used the Eyelet border punch for trimming and the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder to give my project that extra touch. The sentiment is from the Contempo Christmas stamp set which is perfect. I hope you’re inspired to participate in this fun challenge.
