Stampin Friends 2021 Blog Hop--Monochromatic March

 



Happy Spring to all!  Once a month some of my stamping friends and I share some special projects:  a card and a 3-D item following a theme.  This month was all about choosing a favorite color and creating projects with just that color.  I can't wait to see what my friends have made!  If you are following the list of bloggers, you may have seen  Teri's wonderful creations.  I hope you will click on Maureen's name in the list of bloggers at the end of my post.  Comments at the end of the blogs are always appreciated!

 *****

I chose shades of blue (Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight, and Seaside Spray) for my card and treat box.  



I created the ombre background with a stencil and a blender brush.

A stamped greeting, a spray of blue flowers, and some pearls completed the card. The small strawberry flowers are found in  the Sweet Strawberry stamp set and punched with the Strawberry Maker Punch.

The larger flowers are found in the Free as a Bird stamp set.  I "fussy cut" them.

The leaves are part of the            Forever Flourishing die set.










In the course of organizing my craft room, I came across some old stencils!!  I had forgotten how fun it was to create backgrounds with stencils.  I used temporary tape to hold the cardstock in place, placed the stencil over it, and adhered the stencil with washi tape.  Then I applied the three blue colors with a blender brush.  Love, love, love the blender brushes for this technique!








I put more flowers on the inside.

Here's the matching treat box made with the Love You Always Treat Boxes.  There are ten ready-to-make boxes in the package.  4-1/16" x 2-11/16" x 1-1/2" (10.3 x 6.8 x 3.8 cm)








There are two pieces for each box.  The square piece opens to make a belly band to slide over the box after it's filled.
The photo on the right shows the assembled box and its belly band before decorating.
Before I assembled the box,  I stamped some small flowers from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set on the top, bottom, and sides in the three colors.  



I made another belly band to wrap around the belly band with night of navy cardstock for a mat and a strip of stenciled basic white cardstock. It's fun to add a little message in the bottom of the box to be found by the recipient when the box is empty of treats.  
 

There are so  many possibilities to fill these boxes and share a treat with someone special!

Here's a close up view of the top of the treat box. I used the same blue and white flower spray that I made for the card.
