December Power and Spark!


Hello Everyone!  It's the first Friday of the month and that means it's time for another Power and Spark Challenge!!  This month our lovely hostess is Christine and she has challenged us to make a Sweet Treat - the idea is to create something that will be a sweet treat for someone else (so think card, tag, hostess gift, etc) designed to help with those quick Christmas gifts. Don't forget; if you play along with the challenge this month you could win a Power Poppy Stamp Set of your choice!!! 

If you live in Australia, you'll know that there is also only ONE WEEK of school left, so I've used this challenge to make an end of year teacher gift for my son's teacher!  I can't believe that he will be leaving primary school next week and looking forward to High School next year!  Where does the time go??

I've gone with a blue colour palette as I know this particular lady loves blue and covered the front of the journal with some Maja Design paper.  I've made a panel of Marina Mist card, punching the bottom with a lattice border punch, topped with some more Maja Design paper and then attached some ribbon.  I've cut out the name of white card with an alphabet die set and put it across the bottom.  The image is a digi called Climbing Clematis and I've printed this on X-press It Blending Card and then coloured it with Copics (G40, G43, G46, B60, B63, B66, Y15, Y17, YR20, YR21, YR24, B01, B0000, B000).  I've cut this out with Grand Labels Four (which I think is retired), framed with Marina Mist cut with Elegant Labels Four, white cut with Grand Labels Four and finally Baked Brown Sugar cut with Elegant Labels Four.  I've glued this all down and finished with a few white pearls.

Stamps - Climbing Clematis (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, White, Marina Mist, Baked Brown Sugar
Ink - Printer
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Grand Labels Four, Elegant Labels Four, MS Lattice Border Punch, White Ribbon, Alphabet Die Set, White Pearls

I wonder what amazing Sweet Treats the Bloomies have been cooking up for this month's challenge?  You'll have to swing by and check them out!!
That's all from me today, thanks for popping by and hope you play along this month and are inspired to stamp!  :)

This is a sweet gift that will not put pounds on any hips. I am sure that your son's teacher will cherish this one for a long time.

Oh, Kathy, what a wonderful idea for a teacher, and she is going to LOVE it! I like the idea of personalizing it with her name, and this clematis is beautifully colored and works so wonderfully with this DP. Beautifully done with the layered dies and the pearls! Hugs and love, sweet friend...and praying for you! xoxo

Beautiful altered journal Kathy! These layers of the dies are wonderful. I do like that you personalized the front and these clamatis are gorgoeus! Love it!

A beautiful journal Kathy! The colouring is so lovely on the clematis! I bet this teacher will love it. So hard to imagine you on summer vacation shortly....someday we just need to trade seasons for a bit :) Hope you’re healing well friend and finding time to rest!
