It's time for the second group post of the June Papertrey Ink countdown! Today the team is showcasing a fun new set called Bowl of Sunshine. This cute set contains several different bowl options along with different fruits to put in them. I'm a sucker for anything fruity, so I just love this set. It's fun and summery, yet great for any time of year...the apples would be great for fall too.
The new Bowl of Sunshine stamp set and coordinating dies will be available for purchase on June 15th at 10pm EST from Papertrey Ink. I used a few other new products in my projects today and they will be available for purchase at that time as well.
Let me show you my project today...
I created a summery gift ensemble which contains a cute mason jar mug, some packets of lemonade mix and a coaster. The whole works fits perfectly inside the new Berry Basket II die, which is also new this month.
The coaster was made using the new Seasonal Stitching: Summer Fruit dies. I cut them from Harvest Gold and Vintage Cream felt, then hand-cut a cork backer for them. It worked to run the cork through my diecut machine to cut the stitching holes...I did have to poke them out with a pin, but it did cut through the cork enough to act as a guide for my stitching.
I slipped the lemonade packets into a glassine envelope, tied it up with some baker's twine and embellished it with a cute bowl of lemons from the new Bowl of Sunshine set. The "make lemonade" sentiment is from the new set as well.
I made a quick coordinating card as well, using the new Sew Stylish Alphabet dies being released this month.
The scalloped border across the top was made using a stamp from the Ombre Builder set.
