Bowl Of Sunshine - Day 5

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!

Cammie said...

I love this set Lizzie! I didn't think I would order this month, but your set has changed my mind.

Annheidel said...

Your tags are so cute! I love the moving card too. Very creative to make your own "newspaper". Make the moving box a die! :D Seriously though, wouldn't that be fun with a matching stamp set full of moving images to pack in that box?

jan said...

Love the way you shaded the blue bowl on lime, and the cute stacks of bowls!

Renee said...

Absolutely LOVE that moving box...
how utterly creative!
Gorgeous set BTW...

Suzanne Russell said...

Best card ever for the new neighbor! If i didn't already love this new set, I would buy it just to make cards like this. Great job, Lizzie!
I like Annheidel's suggestion, too. : )

Ann said...

Absolutely loving this set Lizzie! Can't wait to try it out for myself... and your projects today are just so inspiring - GORGEOUS!

Rhonda said...

Absolutely fabulous Lizzie!! we at least need a lil tutorial on the moving box until you can make the die and stamps to match. So stinkin clever!

Cindy H. said...

Awesome cards and tags, Lizzie!! You are incredibly creative! Gosh, now I have to buy the bg newspaper stamps, too, which I thought I would never need:) I love how you used the ombre stamp on the tags and the "J" from Smooth Alphabet for a spoon. But, most of all, I love these adorable bowls of fruit!

Cindy O said...

I think these tags are the very cutest I've ever seen.... and that card with the 'moving' theme. Wow! The Bowl of Sunshine fit right in to this perfectly and you did an absolutely fine job on this card. Thanks for sharing your inspiration.

uncbballfan said...

Those bowls... those tags... that box... that newspaper... Totally agree with Ann Heidel that we "need" a die for the box. The wheels are turning... I'm thinking of more than "moving" cards...

Oh my word - I'm sunk this month! Lizzie, this set and your projects are absolutely fabulous.

shirleyR said...

Just plain adorable...lovin the tags and the moving box with the newspaper print is pure genius.

Kathy Krug said...

Your moving box is literally and figuratively "out of the box". Fabulous tags and inspiration.

Nora N. said...

I LOVE that moving box. I saw this and wondered if it was a new die you created. Maybe an idea for the future? Fabulous, fabulous stamp set and cards.

Kathy Mc said...

Lizzie, you "moved" all of us with your creative box lined with newsprint, and your tags are the great idea ever (especially to make them in advance). Your posts for this release have been awesome and Bowl of Sunshine is obviously a HUGE hit. WTG!

Danielle Flanders said...

So cute and creative!

Cynthia Rose said...

The moving card is one of the most clever and cute I have seen in quite a while. Making your own mini newspaper and box is brilliant!

Jami Steiger said...

Hi Lizzie, I have missed seeing you after we met at the Copic certification class. The work you are doing is just wonderful and now it really makes me want to make foodie gift tags too!

Randi Jones said...

The Kitchen Tags are a great idea!
