Apothecary Elements

Welcome to my second week of hosting the challenges at Our Creative Corner! This week I have a sketch for you. I came up with this sketch a long time ago based on the label of a box of bakery muffins from Walmart. See, you never know where you might find inspiration!

I combined my card with two other challenges: SU Only (use your favorite product from the Occasions mini) and the Color Throwdown (Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Rose Red).



I actually have several Occasions mini favorite products on this card: the stamp sets Apothecary Art and Creative Elements; the Framelits dies; and the large pearls. I stamped all over the Crumb Cake DP with the swirly stamp from Creative Elements and also used the label image from that stamp set. For the Pool Party DP die-cut label, I inked just the outline of the journaling stamp with a marker, then using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, I added the flowers on the top and bottom of the label. The circles on the sketch became my medallions, which I made with the triple doily punch, the bitty flower punch, and the aforementioned pearls. FYI, the size of the background scalloped square is 5 3/16".

I've had fun hosting these two challenges, and I hope you have fun playing along with this sketch! Have a wonderful weekend!
