Apple of My Eye Gift Set

#stampinup   Today I'm sharing another of the wonderful projects my BFF, Lynn Birus, created for our annual Sale-a-Bration stamp camp. I think this set is simply adorable--and it's so quick and easy to pull together.

Lynn started with a package of 5" x 3.5" Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes. She stamped the citrus fruit image from the "Apple of My Eye" set in Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive onto Whisper White and punched it out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch. Next, she stamped a "splash" from the "Gorgeous Grunge" stamp set in the same color as the fruit, stamped off once, onto a Whisper White panel. Then she added Old Olive "sprinkles" from "Gorgeous Grunge" set. She used the punched out fruit piece as a guide to add two leaves from the "Apple of My Eye" set in Old Olive. Finally, she completed the panel by stamping the "thank you" sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink.

Lynn then adhered the fruit piece to the stamped mat and the mat to a piece of striped Designer Series Paper from the Brights Collection using Stampin' Dimensionals. The assembly is then adhered to a Note Card.

Lynn placed the cards and envelopes into a Sketched Dots Tag-a-Bag Gift Bag. She stamped another fruit image onto a Whisper White scrap and punched it out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch before adhering it to a strip of Brights Collection DSP, that was flagged with the Banner Triple Punch. She attached this to the gift bag with a Clothespin. So cute, right?!!
