You Can Create It - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comHello and happy JULY!  Have I got some serious inspiration for you today!   I have been having the best time with the You Can Create It International challenge.  This is one of my favorite things to create each month.  We are given just some minimal supplies to work with and the idea is that demonstrators from all over the world will be creating things focusing on these products only.  We can add a card base and a few little things but for the most part, I try to keep it pretty simple….’cuz simple is what I do!

Here is what we had to work with for this month – (3) 2″ x 6″ banners in Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaroon, and Whisper White.  We also had a ¾” x 4″ piece of vellum and 20″ of whisper white cotton ribbon.

July SuppliesThere were some great projects made by my fellow demonstrators.  It was so exciting to see what they created.  First, let me share my contribution to the challenge.  I decided to create a gift bag tag.  I LOVE the Flower Patch Bundle.  It is probably my all time favorite flower stamp set EVER!

Even though the colors were soft and pretty, I wanted to add some boldness to my project so I used Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Watermelon Wonder, and Tangelo Twist ink.  Turned out cool, huh!

I always like to stay focused solely on the products given. That’s what makes the challenge fun for me.  As I said, we are allowed to add other cardstock as needed but the tag by itself was so pretty.  

I did create a gift bag with Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and the new Glassine Sheets.  I ran the bag through the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder to make it a wow!
