Message In A Bottle is a cute stamp set on page 52 of the Stampin' Up!® Annual catalogue. All the little images can be stamped in the bottle, such fun! I've used a variety of them behind the adorable little mermaid in a sailor hat, stamped in Pool Party on Pool Party card, they make a subtle background.
Inside the card, I decided the whale could be in the bottle this time. Until I stamped him/her, I hadn't seen the tiny heart at the top of the water spurting from his blowhole. It really adds a sweet finish!
Number of Years is my most valuable Framelit in my craft room. I'm always adding numbers to cards. This retired pink card seems to pick up the colour of the Watercolor pencil the bikini and hat have been coloured with. Happy Birthday, Gorgeous has this label tag outline and scripted sentiments which fit inside. What's more, there is a punch which matches the label tag, called Classic Label, displayed on page 206 of the Annual catalogue with other punches.
While the stamp was out, I mad a set of gift tags for my daughter-in-law to add to small gifts. She has already used a couple of them so I know they were appreciated. The Pizza Box features in the Holiday Catalogue and is perfect for 3" X 3 " cards and the envelopes available which have returned to the range. Pizza boxes are easy to assemble, and perfect to decorate for many small gifts. No doubt you are looking for ideas for Christmas gift-giving and teacher thank you gifts. Would something like this suit your needs?
There is a mistake on one of these cards unfortunately, and this is one which has already been used. Oh dear! It was an easy little project to make with the Stitched Shape Framelits (square) in 2 sizes.
Very simple stamping in the shade of ink which matches the card used.
I'm looking forward to playing again with Message In A Bottle.
