So, instead of finishing my bathroom that I'm re-doing, I stamped today---I just wasn't feeling the spackling and paint today. I DO love Summer! I needed to make a gift for a friend and I had this extra can sitting around, so here's the result.....
The can started out as this Hot Chocolate can from Target. (I love this Archer Farms hot chocolate---it's all natural---no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives--just FYI!)
I washed the can out and left the paper on it---I covered it in some Cosmo Cricket paper from the Early Bird line. I used one of the pre-printed "elements" for the "for you" tag.
I tied some Aqua Mist ribbon around and added some buttons and Baker's Twine in Pure Poppy.
favorite Pizza place here in town in the can and then filled it up with some
For the card, I kept it quick and simple--I used more of the Cosmo paper and some Aqua mist cardstock on a Rustic Cream Card base. I used the Tin Types impression plate by Papertrey Ink for the Aqua Mist portion--can you see how the pattern matches the patterned paper? LOVE THAT! I inked up the sides with some Antique Linen Distress Ink. I used some grosgrain riboon in Pure Poppy and tied a bow and then added more buttons and twill. The tag is stamped in black ink using Mixed Messages and cut out with a nestability tag die and trimmed to fit---ala Debbie Olson!
The image is from Round and Round---the Limited Edition (free) set your can receive from PTI if you order 12 stamp sets in a year....I'll not tell you how many I got this year......I added some rhinestones to the dots between the leaves--because it made me happy! What do you have lying around in your pantry that you could re-purpose to make a gift for someone special in your life?
Thanks for stopping by today~I hope you have a great weekend!
