Stamp Simply Pot-pourri

The Stamp Simply challenge (ssnotime90) for this week is "Gone to Pot," using some sort of pot in our design. Examples could range from: coffee pots, plant pots...you get the idea...I choose to create a design of lavender potpourri. I have a beautiful row of lavender that I planted years ago running along the front of our home-- it is so lovely and fragrant when it blooms! My house smells great when I trim it!

I began with a SU Lavendar Lace cardstock base, layered with Barely Banana and K and Company Addison dp. My layer beneath my image was run through my Cuttlebug with the textile folder.

I stamped my Rubber Stampede Lavender image onto PaperTrey Ink Stamper's Select white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then coloring it with Copic markers. I then used Lavender Flower Soft and Flower Soft glue to add dimension to the image.

I finished the design with a sheer ribbon, tied with my Bow Easy device. I added a twine/Foof-a-la button to the center of the bow, then attached it to the card.

Please check out the Stamp Simply team to see what they've come up with!

Sharon, Jennifer, Janine, Julie, AJ, Becky, Tammy and June guest designer: Sabrina Jackson.

Have a wonderful weekend!
