ArtfulINKables Saturday

Another weekend is upon us!! Spring has finally sprung here in CT...although we are hot having the summer temps we had last weekend, it is seasonable out. To celebrate the beautiful weather and Mother's Day which is quickly approaching, I decided to make a non card item using the new Bouquets & Butterflies set from ArtfulINKables.



I found an awesome website with every template you can imagine...Visit Mel HERE and see her awesome work! I used flocked paper that I found at Target over a year ago for my "vase". I simply inked the iris in celery ink, ran a garden green marker over the edges and then spritzed with water before stamping on my paper. I then inked my stamped with eggplant, stamped off and then ran the eggplant marker around the edges, spritzed again and stamped. I cut the entire image out of the green and just the flowers out of the purple stamping. I rubbed the flowers in a Versamark dazzle pad and then adhered with pop dots. The sentiment is from the Basic Sentiments set. The butterfly was stamped in Almost Amethyst. I used the swiss dots embossing folder on my white oval and added a black border of cardstock to the inside of the vase. The top of the green paper was also cut with one of the new EK Success border punches. To finish things off, I added some dewdrops in the scallops.

A quick and easy project just in time for your gift for Mom!! You could fill this with vase (otherwise known as a popcorn box!) with candies, a small gift like jewelry or even a gift card!

Thanks for checking in...
See you soon...
