Wedding gift Bag and Card

I spent the week-end making this cute bag and card for my Nephew and Niece’s wedding this weekend. I had so much fun creating it.  My sister said her main wedding color is purple.  I not sure exactly which purple but I think Elegant Eggplant sounded somewhat like the purple she described so that is what I used.  It turned out beautiful anyway.  This is using the pattern made by Andrea Walford.  If you were to make a $50 purchase from me, I would share this tutorial with you.  I have had so much fun using her pattern to create a lot of purses and cards for my sisters for their upcoming birthdays.  I will share those with you another day.  It was the purfect thing to use for a gift bag for my wedding gift to them also. 

This project used a variety of items.  It is so much fun to have a variety of tools and items when trying to put a project together.  The bag was made from Elegant Eggplant DSP from the Regal Paper Pack.  I used the new Wisteria Wonder CS for the flower sponged with Elegant Eggplant ink.  I then spritzed the flower with Shimmer Mist.  In fact, I used a lot of shimmer mist on this flower and while the photo doesn’t show it, it is so sparkly and pretty.  I used three  sets of leaves made with the Little leaves Sizzlit Die (#114511).  I used a large rhinestone in the center from the retired pretties kit, but you could use any brad and stick a rhinestone from the jewels on top and it would have the same effect.   I used Pear Pizzaz Seam binding ribbon around the bottom of this bag and Pear Pizzaz CS for the handles and the leaves.  The leaves were sponged with the new Lucky Limeade. 

Then for the tag I took my brand new stamp from the stampset “Occasions Alphabet”  (123598).  I actually got this set free from Stampin’ Up for sales I did a few months back during Sale-a-brations.   How cool is that?   This was the perfect occassion to use this stamp.

The card also has this same cute flower on it.  It was made the same way.  To make these flowers, use your scallop punch and punch out 6 circles.  Sponge the edges for additional color, then spray both sides with water and scrunch them up really tight.  Then open them up, stack together, put a brad through the center, and then pull the scallops up around the brad.  These are so easy to make and so cute.  For the card I used the leaf on my bird punch as it was smaller but you could use the die if you wanted. 

I used the Vintage wallpaper embossing folder (#120175) to make my base card.  It is sponged with White craft ink which really made the pattern stand out.  I used the En Francais background stamp (#109521) on Whisper White background to create a focal point on this card.  I used the scallop Border Punch (#119882) with both Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White to border it.  I used some retired 1/4″ Eggplant ribbon.  I tied on one of those cute little tags made with the Jewelry Tag Punch (#117190) and the  Tiny Tags (#118592) stamp set.  I am so pleased with how it turned out.  Hope she likes it as much as I do.

Thanks for stopping in.  If you have any questions, just drop me a comment.  To purchase any of the things to make these projects, just shop in my on-line store.  Have a great day.

Hello Blossoms

Today’s card features a single stamp from the Summer 2011 Mini.  It is called Hello Blossoms.  The Happy Greetings from this same catalog is also a very fun set to have.  I plan on getting a few more cards made with this cut little thing.  These  are only available until the end of August.

   Stamps:  Hello Blossoms, Happy Greetings

   Markers:  Daffodil Delight, Mellon Mambo, Wild Wasabi

   Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Mellon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White

   Assessories: Basic Jewels, Melon Mambo ribbon (retired)

   Tools:  Scallop Border Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack

While the ribbon I used is retired, guess what?  The new big catalog that just came out is carrying this in scallop design.  It is really cute and would look just as great if not better on this card.  I don’t have mine yet.    I used my Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight and Mellon Mambo Markers and stamped the flowers across the front of this card. Then I punch the little flowers using my punch pack and put rhinestone jewels on each one.  They turned out so cute.  This was a fun card to make.  Give it a try.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Femine Nature’s Walk

I re-created this card from mylovelyinspirations.com as well.  I just couldn’t help it.  It was so pretty.  This features the free in-color paper pack as a hostess gift.  I used the Blushing Bride color.  This also uses the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and some of SU jewels.  Pink and Grey such a nice color combination.  The  Scallop Trim Border Punch and some Victoria Lace with an Antique Brad finish this off nicely.  The sentiment also comes from a hostess level 1 set called “Because I Care”.  You could get the paper and the stamp set  free for hostessing a workshop.  Call and schedule one with me today.  The other stamp set is the Nature’s Walk.  With the pink flowers this looks so soft and feminine.

Check back tomorrow.  I have a few more things I have created using my Nature’s Walk Stamp set.  This will go on record as a week with a lot to be seen here.  A good week-end of stamping does allow me to have something to share.
