Place Setting for MOM - Stampin' Celebration #1

The debut of Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge has arrived! I'm so honored to be on the Design team and a part of this talented group of ladies! I'm looking forward to sharing with you new and creative ways to use your Stampin' Up! supplies while celebrating! Hopefully you'll be inspired and join us in our weekly challenges each Thursday! We have a wonderful Bright & Lovely Mother's Day inspiration challenge based upon the photo below!

Here's what I came up with - a stylish and entertaining place setting for Mom! I interpreted the Colors from the photo as Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, and Taken with Teal! Of course the Stampin' Up! Big Shot and Flowers Daisies #2 die were the star of the show! I love that creative place settings can establish a theme for celebrations large and small! The theme of this celebration is of course: MOM.
The Stampin' Royalty blog had an Anything But a Card Challenge this week so I entered my parade of dining 'finishing touches' into that challenge! I used all Stampin' Up! products on this ensemble and suprisingly, no stamping was involved! The Billboard Alphabet Die was what I used to die-cut the letters Mom on the place card. Using this die-cut alphabet is a great way to create multiple letters for any name, celebration, theme, or even to monogram!

Place Card: Mom

Glass Charm - Can also be personalized for guests!
