Post-It Desk Cover/Matching Card
I couldn't resist these stamps when I saw them at Eclectic Paperie. Create a flower by Paper Salon is the name of this cute set that comes in it's own tin! You get a great variety of flowers, stems, leaves, and flower centers. It was love at first sight. It is my first unmounted stamp set. I was surprised at how easy they are to use. They are rubber, similar to Stampin'Up!, but you do need to mount them on your own wood, or use acrylic blocks. I LOVE how they store. The paper is Bon Bon from the LILYKATE collection of BasicGrey. Ribbon is May Arts. Card stock is Stampin'Up! Certainly Celery, Buckaroo Blue, Close to Cocoa, and Shimmery White. OMGosh..... I can't wait to play with some of the other flowers in this set! Two of the five different stems in the set are words.... I love that. On this stem, it says "Friends are flowers in Bloom".
The little Post-It note cover is another great idea from SUDSOL. Paula Goff wrote a tutorial with photos. Have I told ya that I love SUDSOL? ;) I used the thin weight coasters and cut them down to 3.5x3.5, cover them with designer paper(cut to 4.5 x 4.5). The inside card stock is 3 1/4 x 6 3/4 and scored at 3 1/4 at from each end. The flower on the outside is also stamped on to the thin weight coaster, cut out and colored with the aquapainter. The heart chipboard piece is from the On Board Accents bunch from Stampin'Up!, covered with craft Ink, then stamped with Timber Brown Stazon. I can never find my Post-It notes on my desk!! Next, I'm making one for me so that I can find them!!
Thanks for stopping by..... if you have a chance, go to Joy and Daisy's store and check out the goodies they have. Be warned though..... you'll want everything! Have a super day!!!
