Artistic Stamper - July Challenge!

I've had a month of birthdays! Which gave me the idea to create this darling set of notelets and gift box for pressies.........

All are created using a selection of stamps and sundries from The Artistic Stamper, papers are Crafty Individuals, grungeboard letters and chipboard are also from Artistic Stamper.

These fabby chiffon flowers were made from cutting out circles of chiffon.... and - wait for it - holding the edges into a candle flame to melt the chiffon..... This is NOT one for the kiddies!

Hold your chiffon circle with a pair of tweezers... and hold it close to the flame - the chiffon will melt! Turn the flower..... repeat...

Don't hold it too close - it WILL catch fire... makes an awful mess of the tweezers - trust me!Three different sizes of circles, held in the centre with a teeny tiny brad............ they're great!

This card uses the Dotted Grungeboard letters from Tim Holtz... inked with Grape Archival ink... and highlighted with lilac Brilliance Ink... The dancing girl stamp is one of a collection from Artistic Stamper....... The Gibson Girls - these are fab.... one of my faves! I've added a teeny tiny bead chain and Prima Deux flowers with diamante.

I do love flowers... this has to be one of my favourites..... but then I love them all!.... chipboard flowers... covered in scraps of papers [sand the edges off] with Prima Flower centres and brads.

Simple but effective.

Another fave....... Did I say I like them all? Acetate butterflys - painted with Stickles glitter glue [also from Artistic Stamper].... I just adore this little verse stamp............

Make a wish... add a little diamante..... and you have the perfect birdy card!

Check out the doily lace edge! [Martha Stewart doily lace edge punch]

And finally.... another image stamp from the 'Gibson Girls' collection from Artistic Stamper.... punched out of pearly card [guess where that came from!] topped onto a scallop edge oval [punches from Stampin Up] - the twill ribbon wordy strip was from a selection at Artistic Stamper.

Really hope you like this set!
