Stapin' Celebration Sketch Challenge - Trio

Welcome back to the Stampin' Celebration Sketch Challenge.  I love what the design team created with this challenge.  Such fun and creative designs! 

The trio of triangles in this month's challenge inspired me and I thought I would have a little fun!

I purchased the Snow Place Photopolymer Stamp Set  and coordinating framelits dies from the Stampin' Up! 2015 Holiday Catalog.  What a cute set!

I love the penguins and so I thought it would be cute to make them into a pyramid!  Of course, from there the inspiration just oozed...  

I love the sign and the scarf.  I added the snowflake wooden element, which I colored with whisper white craft ink so it matched the card a little better.  I did not use the framelits for this card and decided to fussy cut each of the images. I thought they were simple enough and it was therapeutic!!  Sometimes it's what I need.

This is so cute!  I can't wait to use it.  I know exactly who I cant to give this card to (in a few months).

Can't wait to see what you design!

Stanpin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge

Time for another Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge (SC114).

I just love the images in this month's challenge.  So many things drew me in, I even made a silver tassel with the new silver cord from the Stampin' Up! 2015 holiday catalog.  But alas, will have to save that for another project.

I decided to use the florals in my design.  I loved the baby's breath and wanted to try to create them!  I made small pompoms with white baker's twine and mounted them to the leaves from the Bouquet Bigz L Die from Stampin' Up!  The orange flower was also made from the Bouquet Bigz die. 

The added some color to the corrugated cardboard using a brayer and Tangeriine Tango ink.  I also colored white cotton ribbon with Night of Navy ink.

The greeting is from the Endless Thanks stamp set and I die cut the label using the Notetag Punch.

The pillow box die is the new Square Pillow Box Die Thinlit from the Stampin' Up 2015 Holiday Catalog.  I decided to use the Hardwood stamp image to give a rustic feel to the box and to make a nice backdrop for the flowers.  I stamped the hardwood image using versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I like how the box turned out and I can't wait to give it to a co-worked who helped repair a necklace I bought!

Hope you enjoyed my gift box!  I had a lot of fun making it.

I can't wait to see what inspires you this month!
