Here are some samples from my workshop this week. I used the Shades of Spring DSP from the Mini so these would qualify for the PPA#32 challenge-Spring Theme.
The box was made using the Stampin UP Matchbox Bigz XL die. It's too quick and too cute! I used Pretty in Pink card stock for the base and Shades of Spring DSP for the cover. I stamped the image from Matchbox Messages in Pretty in Pink , punched that with the 1 1/4 inch circle punch and layered that onto a 1 3/8 inch circle punched from Pretty in Pink. A piece of 1/4 inch Pretty in Pink grosgrain finished it off. Tucked inside are 4 Hershey's nuggets-yum!
For the candle, I started by running a piece of So Saffron card stock thru the Crimper and layered a piece of Shades of Spring DSP over that. I used some Sticky Strip to adhere the pieces and ends together for a tight fit. I used the stamps from Think Happy Thoughts in both Certainly Celery and Orchid Opulence and punched that out with the 1 1/4 inch circle punch. A piece of Orchid was punched with the 1 3/8 inch circle punch and layered onto a So Saffron piece punched with the Scallop Circle punch. A Certainly Celery brad in the center and a piece of 1/2 inch So Saffron striped grosgrain ribbon finishes it off!
