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.
