CFC #45 ~ Happy Monday!

Hi there and a happy Monday to you all! Hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend. Ours was the stay snuggled in at home relaxing kind. Our only outings were church and walks with Max! I did a bit of crafting while the hubs and Max grabbed a nap and have a fun little project for the latest CAS-ual Fridays challenge. This week we are asked to use one pastel and black.

This is a simple project. An inexpensive note pad that I've covered with a piece of black dotted swiss paper. My Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 4 die cut was stamped with the coordinating text pattern. I think the picture is on an angle because the die looks off center! But it's on their straight kids...really!!! Next I die cut and stamped their large simple sunflower using a pastel golden yellow chalk ink. I added a black velvet button to the center for some added interest then a Stickled bumble bee for a touch of glitz! This combo was added to the label with foam tape. And there you have it ~ easy peasy.  Something cute to go by the phone or give as a little gift!

Have a delightful day friends ~Lisa

Awwwww, super cute!! I love seeing different things to do with that sunflower image and die. The addition of the darling bee with the sparkly stickles is such a wonderful finishing touch!

To answer your question on my blog: yes, I made the stamp! Started from a computer-designed image (tried to work a miniature schnauzer into it but just couldn't manage it) then made a negative and then the stamp from some supplies I have here. Hope you enjoy it!
