I’m so lucky to have spent some time on this wonderful design team stamping for my sweet friend Michelle with Stampers Dream. She invited me back as an alumni to hop with her awesome team of designers and I absolutely jumped at the chance!! Michelle has the most enchanting web store called Stampers Dream and she carries everything that’s hot right now!! When I was on the team it was relentless enabling I tell you . . . I spent hours pouring over the papers and all the different brands and genres of stamps she sells. So, Michelle sent me an image to play with recently and I think she was reading my posts about how I’ve come down with a sweet case of Spring Fever and find myself outside when perhaps I should be getting some housework done (big grin)!!
I decided to make an ensemble for a friend. Since it is gardening weather and everyone is talking about being outside and planting flowers, I made this little tote box and put seed packets inside. The box is from Cricut from their Spring Holiday Cards Cartridge and it is roughly seven inches tall. The box does not come with a flap but I added one with a strip of paper. On the inside I added an acetate window. I punched an oblong hole into the top so that I could insert lace for a tied bow. While I was coloring my images, I colored two so that I could add this one to the front of the gift box. Isn’t this the coolest stamp? Michelle stocks this image called The Potting Shed (psst…there are only a couple left). It is colored with Distress Reinkers and Tombow Markers.
For my card I kept it simple and layered on Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles. I cinched the side with one of my easy peg bow and added some sweet pearls.
