Hostess Gift…

If you read yesterday’s post, you knew today’s post would be the hostess gift for a stamping party held yesterday given by one of my stampin’ peeps in my studio.  I can report the event was a success!

Here is the hostess I gave to Jeanette…


Oh, I think she loved it.  There are some 3 x 3 notecards in the “berry basket” and the Calypso flower on top has a pin back so she can wear that and then of course, she got one of the flower pens too plus some chocolate!  What’s not to like, right?

I’ll give you some general information about what is included in this photo because today it’s more Stuff than Digits…

The pen flower directions were included in yesterdays post.

The pin poppy was made with Calypso Coral and Black cardstock and cut with the Bouquet Bigz L Die.  I’ve hot glued this together on a silicon pad, added the Scallop Circle Punch to the back and a jewelry pine all hot glued.  It went together in a snap.

The basket was made with the Berry Basket Die in Crumb Cake cardstock and embellished with the doily, basic pearls, white cotton twine and butterfly framelit.  There are two of them attached.

I used the For Peeps’ Sake stamp set to make some cute 3 x 3 notecards with envelopes.

A little basket filler and some chocolate complete the perfect hostess gift.

Be sure to come back by tomorrow for another gift idea that is bitter sweet for me…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


The girls who came today are all long time friends and today they take home much more than a party favor.  They all have a sweet memory to cherish.

Get yourself inky…Be HaPpY!
