Welcome back for the second week of the Pootles Design Team offering for May. Basically what we have to do is design one project each week for a month using a Stampin' Up! stamp set of Pootles' choosing. Go check out last week's post for more details on all of that.
Last week I talked about how delicate and 'French boudoir' this gorgeous Butterfly Basics stamp set felt to me and so for this week's project I decided to shift away from that delicate, timeless, romance stuff and go for something, bright and fresh. I hope you like it. There's a PDF with full instructions available by clicking here and also a product list, clicking on any item will take you straight to my online Stampin' Up! shop to buy supplies if you need to.
Each card measures 3x3 and comes with a hand made envelope and the box measures 3 1/2 x 3
1/2 by 1 inch depth and opens with a little ribbon pull. I used one of my favourite Stampin' Up! colours Sweet Sugarplum and added Whisper White cardstock stamped with Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach, Lemon Lime Twist and Wisteria Wonder. The stamped whisper white squares measure 2 3/4 inches x 2 3/4 inches.
For the tag I used a die from the fab new Eastern Medallions die set (grab your bundle now, only available as a bundle until 31st May) and cut two shapes one from Sweet Suparplum and the other from Whisper White and stamped it with a sentiment also from the Butterfly Basics stamp set. I twisted the top shape to allow the bottom shape to show and make a kind of flower effect securing each layer to the other and to the card front using dimensionals.
Inside each card and on each envelope I took Sweet Sugarplum ink and stamped a little butterfly.
Try them for yourself! I'd love to see what you make so remember to #craftylittlethingsuk if you post to social media so I can check out your fab designs. I also used this same stamped Whisper White on Sweet Sugarplum to make a cute double candle or perfume box which I'll share on my blog when the challenge is over. It's such a bright fresh summery look. I love playing with colours the more I use Stampin' Up! supplies, they just invite you to get stamping and trying out different things.
