Dressed-Up Gift Bag

Here's a gift bag I made to give away a set of fifteen handmade cards. The bag was only a dollar or so and I dressed it up with a handmade glitter paper bow using a die from Brenda Walton's Sizzix line. The tag is made from Avery Elle's "Comfort and Joy" and Rubber Stamp Tapestry's "Winter Garland."

I really like how it spruced up this simple bag, and I look forward to doing more bags for Christmas!

Winter Garland Christmas Card

Rubber Stamp Tapestry's Peg Stamps are so much fun to use. I love the flexibility of being able to make borders, straight lines, or all over designs like I did here. This set is called Winter Garland.

The sentiment is from CTMH's A Holiday. The dies are cut from Sizzix "Strawberry Rose Jelly Spools."

This card completes a set of 15 that I am making for a cowoker. And all before Halloween!

Pink Christmas Whimsy

I made this card for Challenge 259 over at Freshly Made Sketches. I knew I wanted to do something whimsical, and when I had bot pink and green dotted paper, I thought I would give something different a try.

The stamps are from Avery Elle's set called Chalet. The dotted paper is from Michaels. Copics are Y35, Y13, B00, R29, YG06, E97 and one Tombow 743. Stardust Stickles were used for the snow.

Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #70

When I saw this Tic-Tac-Toe over at Stamp, Ink, Paper I knew just the stamp set I wanted to use. I bought this adorable Lawn Fawn called Trick or Treat with the idea of making for a kids party at church-until I found out they expected 500 kids! So I made this card for my parents instead.

The Tic-Tac-Toe I chose were all
the ones on the right: Patterned Paper,
Black and Punch or Die Cut.

The paper is from Lawn Fawn's
Polka in the Dark. I used a large
dotted embossing folder and a 1.25"
punch for the moon.

Copic colors are YR04,Y15, W3
and W5.

Thanks to Lisa and Sandy over at SIP for
another great challenge. And I'm sure my
parents will thank you too!

Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie trim. The Old Olive is
embossed with SU!'s Square Lattice embossing
