The Sweet Sorbet accessories kit has been exciting me just as much as the new stamp sets! There are some fantastic cork embellishments in the kit and I adore the cord which you get in all three of these wonderful spring colours. I made this little vase from an interestingly-shaped empty spice jar and it's the perfect size for three small spring blooms like these mini roses.
It was was a doddle to make: I cut a piece of multi-purpose adhesive sheet to fit the middle section of the jar, stuck it on and peeled the backing sheet away. It was easy then to wind the Sweet Sorbet cord around the jar to form the three textured stripes.
I made a card to coordinate with the vase, thinking it would make a sweet thank you gift set.
The Sweet Sorbet designer papers are just beautiful! There's a floral that I could just frame and look at all day but this stripe is also a big favourite of mine. I cut out a panel, pierced a frame round it using the Essentials piercing templates, then attached a simple tag stamped with a bold sentiment from Oh Hello.
For a little bit of detail, I unraveled some of the pink cord so I had a thin strand and used it to handsew a rough double border on the side of the sentiment tag. The card was finished with a stylised flower made with punches and a candy dot.
