Ginger Gardening Gift Set
This was an awfully fun gift set to create, and easy, too! I stamped Ginger from In Style Stamps on the largest of the Marvy Scalloped Ovals and colored her in. I added some sponging, and lots of Cotton Candy Stickles. Then I picked out a pretty seed packet and mounted her on top. I added lots of Stickles and some sponging to the seed packet, and used a SU! punch to cover up the part of the label that wasn't pretty. I put one of my big silver eyelets in the corner and attached it to the Paperwhites kit with raffia to match the raffia already on the sign. So that's two gifts, the seeds and the pot of bulbs.
Then I altered a tin sign I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I took an American Crafts chipboard butterfly and pressed the back of it into a Pink Passion ink pad. The right side was bright green, and not the color I wanted, so I changed it. Then I went over the now pink butterfly with Stickles. I also added dots, outlined the letters and certain parts of the tin butterfly. That's three quick gifts!! Now this little sign looks like a gift from me-it has sparkle!!
