This post has been scheduled as I’m on holiday so I hope it works OK!
The Truly Scrumptious challenge this time is to make anything BUT a card. We’re being sponsored this week by Sandra Dry Digi Stamps and the lucky winner will get to choose six of her fabulous designs.
I decided to make a little gift set for my mum. The first item is a simple topper for a bag containing mini bath bombs. I used my label nesties and coloured the gorjuss girl in distress inks. The roses are spritzed with glimmer mist. The second item is a small gift box which has four drawers, each of which contains a gift. I made this by using 4 craft matchboxes which I coloured using distress inks. I used a ribbon slot punch to create a slit at the front of each drawer and then threaded the ribbon through. The corners of the base & top of the box have been rounded and I then stamped and coloured the gorjuss girl so she would sit towards the bottom of the box as I wanted to add a nice posy of roses in the top corner.
The flourishes stamped under the flowers are from Crafty Individuals and the sentiment is a Papermania stamp.
I hope you’ll all joining in this weeks challenge .
