Delightfully Potted Gifts | Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights

Welcome back.

Today I'm playing along with Kylie Bertucci’s monthly International Blog Highlights.  I've long been a follower of Kylie Bertucci, an awesome Stampin' Up! demonstrator in Australia, and one of my goals when starting this blog was to participate in Kylie's International Highlights .

Each month participants in the post a project using the current theme (this month is "teachers gifts"), and everyone asks for their friends and followers to vote for their project. The top 10 picks get to take part in a blog hop with Kylie! How exciting, hey!

So, here is my project using Kylie's theme. If you have the time, check out all the wonderful submissions and vote for your favorites!  If one of those favorites, happens to be me, thank you!

I am constantly amazed by my children's wonderful teachers and what
better way to show your appreciation than with a beautifully wrapped pot plant.

Stampin' Up! makes the most beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP) and this Delightfully Daisy DSP is no exception. 

When working with DSP that has a large detailed pattern like this one I like to keep the other details simple. On this project I've added a tag with a watercolour splash of Old Olive and the sentiment from All Things Thanks was heat embossed in copper Stampin' Emboss Powder. The tag is then secured with some Ombre Ribbon in Calypso Coral

The second plant has been wrapped in the daisy print Delighfully Daisy DSP with some Double Stitched Ribbon in Daffodil Delight and a bow in the new Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon.

The Pretty Label punch and coordinating Label Me Pretty stamp set is great for creating tags and in this instance I've embossed the a floral pattern on a Night of Navy Pretty Label in White Stampin' Emboss  Powder and then layered a circle of Daffodil Delight and Whisper White with the sentiment stamped in Night of Navy. I've then secured the label and another bow to a cake pop stick before sticking it into the soil.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you've enjoyed this post and have been inspired to create your own beautiful gifts. Don't forget to check out Kylie Bertucci's blog to vote for my project.
