Here are my creations for today's hop:
For today's creation, I decided to make a matching gift set using the Easter Blessings stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs (Released today!) The image is stamped on water color paper, colored with watercolors, and cut out using my Labels 13 die. The sentiment is stamped on vellum and overlays the image. Both panels are pierced. I then used the small die from the Fleur De Lis Die set to frame my image panel. The paper is from K&Co. Tim Coffey. The bottom border is punched with the MS Flower Vine punch.
stamps: Easter Blessings from Our Daily Bread Designs
paper: baja breeze, bitter chocolate, K&Co. Tim Coffey
Accessories: Spellbinders Fleur De Lis, Spellbinders Label 13, MS Flower Vine punch, Zva Creative pearls, Satin ribbon, Vellum, textile embossing folder
The Gift to go box is created using a template from Leigh Ann Baird just release yesterday. Isn't it a fun little container. I always loved the shape and design of the Chinese Take out Boxes and it looks very similar. Again I water colored my image, cut it out, and popped it up on dimensionals in a labels 13 dry embossed die shape.
