Day 3 with Sankari Wegman- Snowflakes & Socks

You will just love Sankari 's project today. What a perfect gift for your child's favorite teacher or a special friend!! We will have a 2nd post tonight at 5PM announcing our Black Friday/Cyber Monday promotion.

Good Morning Everyone!!

Are you all getting ready for some Thanksgiving yumminess?! Well, today - is a busy day over here with cleaning, cooking and eating :) lol! Today, I am excited to show you a project using one of my fave Just Rite stamps with the sentiment: "Snowflakes are Winter's Butterflies". This sentiment is one one of the borders that comes with the: Merry Little Christmas Borders & Centers Round 1-5/8" set. There are so many beautiful sentiments in this set that its hard to choose one - but I loved this sentiment because of the image of a winter butterfly.

All the Just Rite circle stamps are so fun to use them with all the different circle punches, nestibiliites or circle cutting systems and there are so many fun possibilities on how to layer them on your card or project. The project that I made today is a fun (and inexpensive (under $5)) gift for my children's preschool teacher. I created a little winter pail filled with socks and a matching card. I got this pail at Target for $1 and some socks to fill in the pail.

I love how this turned out and can't wait to make a few more! Here is a picture of the gift set:
I used the My Mind's Eye designer papers series and cut out little christmas trees for the bottom of the pail and then colored in the snowlfakes on the metal pail with blue copics and some added to the centers some bling (I used some Zip Dry to adhere the ribbon). I layered the sentiment and snowflake with my punches and then my nesties for the bigger sizes.
For the card, I cut out a cared stock and then punched with the lattice edge punch the inside of the card and then cut it a little shorter in the front of the card. So when the card is lying down it looks like this:
But when you stand it up - the lattice edge goes to the back and the circle window becomes more apparent and since the stamped image is on dimensionals - it doesn't hide in the background :
I arranged all the elements on the card and then punched out a circle with my nesties and then on the inside of the card I added the snowflakes are winter's butterflies sentiment which is covered with chunky glitter and then I layered with nesties and decorated with liquid pearls and sponging :) It's so nice to have such variety of choices of borders and images to mix and match and there is something about circle stamps where the sentiment is also circular that is just so fun to stamp with! I hope you enjoyed this project and gift idea :) and I hope you come back tomorrow for a little project to make your holiday dinner very special!!!

Thank you so much for stopping in today and can't wait to see you tomorrow!!
And wising al of you who are traveling to be with your loved ones - a very safe journey!!!
Big hugs!
Sankari :)
