A Little Gift Bag

Hi!  Today I have the CUTEST little gift bags to share with you!  Thanks to Jill Lackford for this idea!   We will be making these at this month’s Boxes, Bags, and Tags class on November 17.  If you are local – join me!!  It’ll be tons of fun!

Gift Bags, Seasonal Chums, Foil Frenzy, DSP, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Aren’t these adorable????  I LOVE THEM!!!  The bags are made using the Foil Frenzy Designer Series Specialty Paper and the Gift Bag Punch board.  The decorations on the bag use the Seasonal Chums Stamp Set and coordinating dies.  Here’s a closer look at each bag:

For the snowman, I used Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist for the mittens and scarf and the holly and band on the hat.  The bunny is colored in Crumb Cake.  The hat is Basic Gray and his nose is Pumpkin Pie.  He is layered on a Circle cut from the Layering Circles  stamp set in Whisper White which was then run through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  This is placed on a Lemon Lime Scallop Circle from the Layering Circles as well.   The ribbon is Lemon Lime Twist 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon.

The reindeer is stamped on Crumb Cake card stock (less coloring!).  His nose, spots, hooves and antlers are colored with a Chocolate Chip Marker.  His ears are colored in Pink Pirouette.  The bow is Soft Sky, the bell Crushed Curry.  I then colored the bell with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen.  He is popped up on a Whisper White circle die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits and this is placed on a Soft Sky Scallop from the same die set.  The ribbon is Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon.

I can’t wait to show guests how to make these bags!

Introducing Stampin’ Blends!

Hi!  Today is the day!! Stampin’ Blends are now available for YOU to purchase!  I finally had a chance to play with mine – what fun!

Stampin' Blends, Color Me Happy, Project Kit, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This card is made with the Color Me Happy stamp set and coordinating Color Me Happy Project Kit.  You can purchase the two together and SAVE!!  Please note the Color Me Happy stamp set and coordinating Project Kit are while supplies last!!!

For Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Up! has released 12 colors – there is both a light and a dark of each of the 12 colors.  You can purchase each marker seperately, or purchase a combo pack containing both the light and dark.  There are also Ivory, Bronze and Color Lifter markers.  To check out all the products, simply click on the Stampin’ Blends brochure in the right hand sidebar.

For my particular version of this card, I used the Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry combo markers as well as the Dark Daffodil Delight.  It was fun blending the colors to create my look – and I love that there are no streaks!!

You will need the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad to stamp your images so that you do not get bleeding of the black ink.  You will find these new markers, stamp set and project kit in my On-Line store.

I hope you will give them a try and let me know what you think!

Thanks for stopping by!
