Well, here we are, Friends. It's Day 5 of the June Papertrey Ink new release countdown. Nichole and the Design Team are featuring Bowl Of Sunshine (available June 15th) today, so make sure to visit everyone for their take on this new set. I have a photo-heavy post for you, so settle in and enjoy!
My first project today is a set of kitchen tags. We seem to have several friends in need of a homemade meal, treat, or surprise lately. I thought it might be handy to make some tags to have ready for the next time we make a delivery. These tags make it easy to give a few simple instructions, brief recipes, or notes for the recipient.
I began by die cutting several tags from Classic Kraft, Spring Moss, and white cardstocks. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment (from Bowl Of Sunshine) onto each colored tag and then followed up with the stitched line strip from Ombre Builders to give a bit of texture.
I die cut bowl and fruit shapes to embellish the front of each tag.
I die cut two upper case "J"s from wood veneer using the Smooth Alphabet to create spoon handles for the soup bowls. I also stained them with Dark Chocolate ink to make them stand out a bit better.
Then, I stamped the white tags with the lines from Journal Accessories using inks that coordinated with the front of each tag. I adhered the white lined tags to the back of each decorated tag to make it easy to write clear, orderly notes.
These tags can be easily tied to casseroles, jars of soup, bottles of juice, drink mixes, etc. for a thoughtful gift for a friend in need (or just because).
You can even include an ingredients list for those folks that are health or allergy conscious. There's nothing better than the gift of something fresh and delicious when you don't have the time to take care of yourself (by the way, this recipe makes more juice than the jar could hold, but it was the first jar I found in our cupboard so I went with it).
My last project today is a welcome to the neighborhood card for someone new on the block.
I began by die cutting and stamping the bowls from Bowl Of Sunshine. Then I heat embossed my sentiment onto a Terra Cotta Tile card front and adhered it to a white card base.
Next, I created a moving box by doing a little creative cutting and folding with a piece of Classic Kraft cardstock. I sponged all of the folds and edges with Classic Kraft ink to create a little depth. Then, I took a piece of packing paper (that's right, the stuff that comes in our boxes every month) and stamped it with Background Basics Newsprint using Smokey Shadow ink. I crumpled the faux newsprint and attached one piece to my card front (only in the center to keep the edges from flattening too much) and another, smaller piece inside my moving box.
I adhered my bowls to a piece of Aqua Mist cardstock using flat and foam adhesives and then mounted my box over top them using narrow strips of foam tape along the edges. I used more foam tape (again, only in the center) to attach the focal panel to the card front. The finished product is so much fun!
Alrighty, friends. That's all for me for this countdown. I hope you've enjoyed my projects this time around. Make sure to check in with Nichole, Ashley, Betsy, Danielle, Dawn, Erin, Heather, Laura, Laurie, Maile, and Melissa for their inspiring projects today. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you again soon!
