I had a new challenge when designing my alternate project this month, as my kit was missing a couple of things when received. I didn't have the stamps or the ink spot that were supposed to be in the kit. Now, I could do without the spot, as I have the Mint Macaron full size pad, but the stamps, that was a different story. Thanks goodness Stampin' Up! has the best support team in the direct sales industry and they are sending me both items. But, since I just got my kit a few days ago, I didn't get them in time to use them on my alternate project.
I decided to make a small banner. I used the layering square dies to cut the treat bags, and got 2 squares from each bag (front and back.) I backed those with a Mint Macaron cardstock scalloped square to make them sturdier. I used only kit elements to decorate each square, using a repeat pattern. I did add the 1/8" Mint Macaron Ribbon from the January-June Mini Catalog and the Dark Basic Black Stampin' Blend to color in the white stripes on the bumblebees. I, also, used the alphabet from the Make a Difference Stamp Set for my word and letters.
Here is a closer look at a couple of them:
