Creation Station Blog Hop - Gifts From The Garden
Happy Fourth of July weekend my stamping friends! What a wonderful time to celebrate our country - the freedoms it allows us and the opportunities it provides us. This month's blog hop is focused on "Gifts From The Garden", whether it be a fruit and vegetable garden or a flower garden, nature provides so many wonderful things.
One of my favorite fruits is strawberries. I could seriously eat them everyday. When I saw them highlighted in the new Fresh Fruit stamp set, I knew it was a must have! Stamped in Real Red and Cucumber Crush, they have such a fun whimsical appeal to them.
Along with the card, I created a fun little jar filled with sweet treats. The "thanks so much" is from the fun stamp set, B.Y.O.P. and stamped with our Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad.
I incorporated our fabulous Whisper White Baker's Twine once again (like I did on the card) by wrapping it around the lid and tying it in bow. Notice the fun lace below the lid? That's our fabulous new Delicate White Doilies! They are smaller than our previous ones, but just as simply sweet!
I thought they helped to create a soft and pretty touch to the boldness of the metal. The fun tag was stamped using the Sunbursts Sayings stamp set and hand cut out. You can see the fun treats inside the jar a little better - individually wrapped strawberry hard candies! I love it when the packaging and card match the gift!
I hope you enjoyed the garden inspired gift ensemble. Depending on where you started on our hop you can either go back and see Jen's creativity or you can move along to see Elizabeth's inspiration. Happy Stamping!
