Pootler's Sale-a-bration Blog Hop with Lots of Lavender

Hi everyone,

I'm so excited today to be participating in the second blog hop of the month for the Pootler's Team. We don't tend to do many blog hops - usually just one when each of the three new catalogues are published in June, September and January. But we also have an additional hop for us to showcase some of the free stamp sets and other products which are FREE as part of the Sale-a-bration promotion. This is the set that I have chosen to feature, called "Lots of Lavender":

It is a two step stamp set, with detailed outline images and then solid stamps to full them in. I chose not to use the bigger, main image but the smaller flower spray.

Firstly I decorated one of our mini pizza boxes with Petal Garden DSP in Sweet Sugarplum. I die cut a circle from Whisper White card stock with our Stitched Shapes Framelits dies and stamped the outline image for the floral spray twice in Memento Black ink. I used the solid stamps to colour in the images with Sweet Sugarplum and Old Olive. I mounted the circle on a silver doiley and glued it to the top of the box. I then wrapped some Old Olive Sheer ribbon around the box a couple of times before tying a bow.

This little box is so sweet in real life - I'm not sure the photo really does it justice. Inside the box, I put 5 little mini-cards, made to fit our 3" x 3" envelopes. I made these in a similar way but added a different sentiment on each from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set and mounted the stamped circle on a scalloped circle.

I even stamped and decorated the envelopes to make the set even more special.
