Gifts for Spring

Photo 1

Are you in the mood for spring? This project contains three gift ideas with florals and spring in mind!

For this card I used the Diagonal Stripe Stamp (141917) and the new Lemon Lime Twist Classic Stampin’ Pad (144086) to create my background. I am so in love with this new In Color! Did you know that you are able to order it in May? This color is the definition of spring for me!

The little flowers are from the Jar of Love Stamp Set (141587); I stamped them in Lemon Lime Twist (of course), Flirty Flamingo (141397), and Peekaboo Peach (141398).

The little bumblebee is from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set (142924); I fussycut this little one out. For the sentiment I used the Dutch version of the Florishing Phrases Stamp Set (141531), Recht uit het Hart (143204). It says in English “For you, from me.” How cute is that!

And because I really love gift packaging, I made my own little box with the Gift Box Punch Board (135863). I used the measurements L and S to create this box. The final sizes are 8.3 cm x 8.3 cm x 4.4 cm. A perfect size for Mother’s Day chocolates, right? The blue paper is from the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper (142770). The Pool Party background really stands out behind the flowers.

To finish it off, I used a piece of the Flirty Flamingo 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon (141426) and, of course, (because I love bling and sparkle) some little Rhinestone Basic Jewels (144220) available in May!

This picture frame was very easy to make and is a perfect gift for Mother’s Day! I used my leftover paper scraps and flowers that I didn’t use on my previous projects. This picture is an old one of my hubby and me. It sits on my scrap table now . . .

Enjoy spring and let it inspire you to create something beautiful!
