Welcome to those who have joined me from Clare's blog - wasn't her sweetie cone gorgeous? I just love how she has used the gold vellum and the sequin trim!
I have focused on two new products from the new seasonal catalogue – the So Very Grateful stamp set, and the Angled Tag Topper punch. I have used these to turn a plain white bag (see yesterday's post) into a (hopefully) pretty gift bag. I stamped the images from the new So Very Grateful stamp set in black stazon and then coloured in using a blender pen, which gives a more muted effect. The tag topper punch is fab – you can create a tag or topper any length you want and it even creates the hole for you!
I also used the new spiral flower die to quickly accent the tag with a stunning 3D flower (I used Crystal Effects to hold it all together).
Of course you can’t give a present without a card, so I made a card (and envelope) to match and incorporated a tag (using the Angled Tag Topper punch once again)!
As you can probably tell I am very matchy, matchy – I even went so far as to wrap the present in the gift bag in co-ordinating tissue paper onto which I have stamped the flower images from the So Very Grateful set in black stazon. You might notice that it looks like I stamped the images a 2nd time to get a fainter image in the background. Actually no – this was not planned (the tissue paper was folded in half when I stamped the first half and because the paper is so thin the original image bled through – oops!). But as all good crafters know – there is no such thing as a mistake!To make this project you will need:
