Inspired by….Jill (Flower gift set)
It is such a beautiful autumn day here today…and I have another gift set to share with you.
It is my very good friend’s birthday today and she just loves my gift sets, so I made an extra special one for her….it has taken me hours, but I am happy with the result! It uses the Hero Arts Stencils Flower cling stamp and the HA Envelope Pattern Woodblock stamp.
I am entering it into Joy Taylor’s inspired by challenge over at her blog, Less is More, where we have to create a project inspired by someone in the crafting world. Well I took my inspiration from the very talented Jill Foster. She is THE master at taking plain white card and turning it into a colourful masterpiece! This is her lovely card where my inspiration came from.
And here are my versions….yes there are quite a few photos!!
And one of them all together (sorry about the photo)
And to top it off I found a snazzy little box from my local Newsagent that they fit into perfectly!!
Phew….that’s it! As you can see I even tried Jill’s water splattering technique that she uses so often on her cards.
