Basket of Wishes goes Scandi - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop! When I saw the succulents in Basket of Wishes, I knew I wanted approach what might have been intended as a warm cosy stamp set in a fresh and modern way. So here's my kind of Scandi take on it! This would make the perfect little gift set for a teacher, workmate or friend.

Hot Tips:
1) Did you know you can make boxes of many sizes using the Envelope Punch Board? Joanne at The Crafty Owl has done all the ground work for you in this handy dandy Box Buster tool. I still recommend a scrap piece first while you get used to using it. I made mine just slightly wider than my 3x3 cards but not so tall it hid the tops - 2 3/4" x 3 1/2" x 1 1/8".

2) Stamp on your Glassine Gift Bag for a subtle coordinating look. I cut the bottom of the bag off so it only pokes out just the right amount.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Basket of Wishes
Inks: Mint Macaron, Smokey Slate, Momento Tuxedo Black
Papers: Smokey Slate, Whisper White, Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper, Delicate White Doilies, Glassine Gift Bags
Accessories/Tools: Envelope Punch Board, Gold Metallic Thread, Gold Binder Clips, Basic Black Baker's Twine, Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine, Blender Pen, 2" Circle Punch


I can't wait to see what Val has for us! Happy hopping!
