Gift Set of Roses



I am always inspired by Sharon Johnson's work, and one of the things she does that I love the most is coming up with a matching set of cards and a little bag or box to give them in. Very often I buy "sets" of designer paper, intending to create a great gift set of cards using all that matching paper just like Sharon does, but I never get around to it. If you go to Sharon's blog here and look under the categories of "gift sets" and "miscellaneous projects" you'll see some of her great creations that get me inspired! Well, I've had this gorgeous paper from Daisy D's that I got at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, and my 3-Step Roses set from Kitchen Sink Stamps is just begging to get inky! So I started this project over the weekend, and with a sick kid at home today, I was able to finish it in between tending to her needs. A complete supply list is at the end of this post, but if you have specific questions about any items, just give me a shout!

I created this Kitchen Sink gift bag months ago, and saw this one done by Beate that gave me inspiration for the ribbon attachments.





Stamps: 3-Step Roses, 3-Step Daisy for Happy Birthday, Never a Loss 4 Words for warmest wishes and many thanks, Backgrounds & Borders for swirls on first card (Kitchen Sink Stamps); Cardstock: Posie Pink, Sweetheart, Chiffon (Bazzill Basics), Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Old Olive, Certainly Celery (Stampin' Up!), white (Georgia Pacific), designer paper (Daisy D's); Inks: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa (Stampin' Up!), Creamy Brown, Dark Brown (Clearsnap); Accessories: scalloped punches, large circle and oval punches (Marvy), small oval punch (Stampin' Up), clear embossing powder (Ranger), vintage brads (unknown), ribbon (May Arts, Offray, Creative Impressions), sponges, dimensional adhesives.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you like everything!
