Welcome to our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenges. This week’s inspiration challenge is a pretty lavender print!
The Perennial Lavender Suite of products is definitely one of my favorites in the Mini Catalog! I love the postage dies and the pretty lavender options with both stamps and dies!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Highland Heather cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White cardstock was cut with the largest Perennial Postage Die, then embossed with the Layered Florals Embossing Folder, and added to the front.
- The 1 x 3-1/2 and 1 x 4-1/2 pieces of Perennial Lavender Designer Paper s were criss-crossed on the front.
- The branch from Painted Lavender Dies was cut from Lost Lagoon cardstock and two sets of lavender flower stocks from Basic White cardstock. The flower stocks were colored with Highland Heather and Lost Lagoon Inks using a sponge dauber, then added to the front.
- The greeting from Perennial Postage was stamped with Lost Lagoon Ink, then cut with the small label die in Thoughtful Expressions (LOVE those label dies!). It was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some Linen Thread was tied in a bow and added to the stems.
- Two large Purple Shimmer Gems were added to the DSP.
Love how this turned out! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
