S2G News and a Challenge


Part I:
For part one of my post today I thought I would share with you a gift bag that I made using some new Shirley's 2 Girls stamps...The template for the bag was a challenge given to all the "Ladies with Attitude" to play and experiment with...For this challenge, I decided to use the new stamp set "Cream in my Latte" available right now from Shirley's 2 Girls...Go and check it out, they have some super cute stamps and are adding ribbon and paper to their collection daily!!! I stamped the main image and colored it in using various copic markers, popped it up using foam tape and framed it out using my nestabilities and cuttlebug...I used my Stampin up slot punch and added some brown and white polka dot ribbon to complete this tag for the outside of the bag...I also used my Top Note die to cut out a small piece for the top of the bag...For the base of the gift bag I used a neutral color paper that matched my image and stamped a flourish pattern half-harzardly all over the paper using Chocolate chip ink...No project is complete without some sort of bling, so I added some crystal rhinestones to the gift bag and tag itself...This template was a lot of fun to play with and I am thinking about adding a Starbucks gift card and some Coffee to it for a sweet little gift... Scroll down for part two of this post...
Part II:
Part two of my post today is about a challenge that Shirley's 2 Girls issued on their blog called the "Green Challenge"...Make sure you take a minute to check it out!! This is their first challenge and they are offering up a great PRIZE!!..Here are all the details:
They are supplying you with a template for a small button box...7 1/2"w x 8"h (here is a link for the box)...All you have to do is come up with an idea that embraces...GREEN...GREEN can be anything from the environment, to the color, to St. Paddy's Day, to the renewing and rebirth that Spring brings us...This small box could hold, candy, seeds, mini-hearts, shamrocks, a special gift card, or even money...They want you to dig deep and use your imagination to come up with something really unique and GREEN...Naturally, they would love you to use their stamps, but because they are so new, and not everyone has had a chance to buy one of their stamps...you can use any stamp you already have...The deadline for submitting the pieces is...2/22. at 2:00p.m.(pst). They will post the finished pieces on their GALLERY page and on SCS...The top 3 designs that really 'embrace' the GREEN theme will receive a $22.00 credit with S2G...and of course be featured in their BLOG and possibly win a chance at being a Guest Designer....Ready...Set...GO GREEN! For additional details, please check out the Ladies with Attitude Blog!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
