Lollipop Ladies Challenge #3

Over at  the Lollipop Ladies, they set a challenge this week with lollipops as the inspiration.  Given their lovely name I would have thought that would be the muse for the first challenge lol!

I missed the last challenge. I’m moving house and sometimes I have to get off the computer, or even stop crafting! So I was determined to be in on this one.

 

Lollipop/ flowers, which I made by rough cutting some circles, distressing them and inking the edges, then placing a little brad in the middle.  Rolled some cardstock for the sticks( Stampin Up Kraft), which was hilarious because I’d never done it before and it was harder than I’d thought!!  I think I should have gone with a thinner card, but I wanted that colour and was being stubborn 🙂  I used the eyelet border punch on the white because I think it makes it look like a little doily.  I love the designer paper which is actually christmas theme I think.  I was hard pressed to find a way to put in the cellophane, but eventually decided to wrap the stamped greeting like a lolly.  I don’t tend to use bright colours in my projects, but I’m happy with how this came up.

XO’s
