Beautiful Bunch - Thank You


This is my take on this week's Global Design Project challenge... 

Any idea what this week's challenge is?
 Red Gingham and a Sunflower? 

I do not own any stamp sets of farm animals or scenes at the moment (the Barnyard Babies stamp set is on my Wishlist), so I had to make a plan... Red Gingham and Sunflowers always make me think of life on a farm (the romanticized version that is!).

I used the middle of one of the flowers in the Beautiful Bunch stamp set to build my little Sunflower!

My Product List

Hints & Things

  • Look at your Designer Series Paper differently - see if you can use it for different occasions - I used paper from  the Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper to set my "farm scene".
  • I also used Washi tape from the Season of Cheer pack for my little clothes peg.
  • For my Real Red Gingham pattern I used the Brush line from the Work of Art stamp set. 
  • To give my little Sunflower  dimension I layered 3 punched flowers, but also cut into the little petals to make it easier to shape them.
  • By changing the Designer Series Paper and stamp set this can be turned into a Beautiful Christmas treat bag! Look out for my next post!
Don't forget to make some time to craft!
