When I do workshops for other people, I always make a door prize that can be won by one of the attendees. I like to show the versatility of the Stampin' Up! products. Think outside the square, we are MORE than just scrap book and card supplies! I will fill this wee Pizza box with chocolates or another hand made product. I always hope that it will inspire the receiver to have a go at making things themselves!
I have used my favourite stamp set "Lovely as a Tree" to create the topper. First, I spritzed water on the Very Vanilla card stock to get it nice and wet. Inked up and stamped my image. This causes the ink to run all over the place, a really awesome effect. Once dry, I stamp the image again for nice crisp lines. I have added faux stitching and ribbon to match the colours I have used, then "grunged" and tore a co-coordinating piece of card stock mat.
