One Day Creative Escape - Gift Bags

Hello,

One of the things that I love to do is spoil my customers!! I wanted to have a special little thank you gift waiting for them at their spot yesterday.

After playing with the new Gift Bag Punch Board, I knew that a little gift bag would be perfect way to say thank you!!

BlogPhotos3-066 The new Neutral Colours Collection is a steal of a deal!! You get 40 -12 by 12 sheets   ( 2 each of 2 double sided paper) in 10 colours including gold and silver sheets that have metallic ink! Stampin' Up! has freshen up the patterns and they are awesome!!

BlogPhotos3-067I used the black patterns on my bags so I could show off the 4 different patterns. I paired it with the new yummy Incolours: Watermelon Wonder, and Mint Macaron.

BlogPhotos3-068I finished off the bags by stamping the greeting from the Friendly Wishes in Mint Macaron and punching it out with the 2 1/2 circle punch. Then tied a bow using the new Delightful Dijon Dotted Lace Trim Ribbon!

Stampin' Tips:

  • Stamp your greeting using the Friendly Wishes stamp set
  • The gift bag was made using the new Gift Bag Punch Board
  • Pattern paper is from the Neutral Colours Collections
  • Ribbon is the Delightful Dijon 1" Dotted Lace Trim

Mojo Monday Sketch 399

Happy Friday!!

This week's Mojo Monday was a Tall and Skinny card! I never really had made a card like this and thought it might be fun to try!!

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-04XKCd3Jq0g/VWI_ZpELSWI/AAAAAAAAWOw/mCKAQrhtSJw/s1600/zzMojo399.gif

When I saw the sketch, I thought it would be fun to make a masculine card and use the Guy Greeting stamp set! Plus it was a great chance for me to use the new Bohemian Designer Series Paper.

BlogPhotos3-063

This new paper is very bold with rich colours in it. The colours are Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Island Indigio, Delightful Dijon, Rich Razzleberry and Very Vanilla.

BlogPhotos3-064When I saw the sketch for the first time, I thought the Classic Car image from Guy Greeting would work perfectly in the circle.

Sneak Peak: I think You're Great

Happy Monday!

First, I wanted to let you know that there will be NO Coffee and Cards tomorrow night. I'm starting to feel better but just need one more week to build back up the energy!! I'm hoping to be back to my normal self really soon!! Thanks for being so understanding!!

My project today is a CASE from the new Annual Catalogue that will be making it's grand entry on Tuesday June 2th. You are going to want to mark this day in your calendar as you will be able to order from 3 catties: Occasional, 2014 Annual and the Brand New 2015 Catty!! I already have my wishlist ready to go that day!! Do you have yours ready?

Now on to the card for today...I decide to CASE one of the gorgeous samples (page 130) in the new catty showcase a fun technique called "Kissing."  You are probably thinking...what is she talking about?

BlogPhotos3-055

Kissing Technique is when you ink a solid image. I inked the "HI" stamp in Bermuda Bay ink and left the pattern image un-inked.

BlogPhotos3-058

Then you stamp your solid image onto your patterned stamp to transfer the pattern.

BlogPhotos3-059

Then stamp your project using the solid stamp!!

BlogPhotos3-057

And that is called the "Kissing Technique!" How fun is that...you can now create tons of new patterned images with the stamps you have in your collection!!

BlogPhotos3-056

Stampin' Tips:

  • Kissing Technique is a really cool way to create your own pattern stamps
  • Ink the solid image first, then stamp it on a patterned stamp to transfer the pattern
  • Then stamp your project using the solid image
  • I think you're great stamp will be available June 2
  • Washi tape is from the new Cherry on Top collection
  • Watermelon Wonder card stock was used to punch out the heart
