Over the past week or so I’ve shared with you the little gift I created for Kathy who signed up to be a SU! Demo. I don’t do all my gifts the same as I like to create individually for each one.
Today, I am sharing with you, the Gift Bag created to house those gifts including the card created to go with them. I created this bag a long time ago & have always loved it.
Again, I’ve used the gorgeous “Falling in Love” DSP from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. I’ve kept it very simple as I wanted the DSP to be the showcase.
I used Soft Sky CS for the base of the bag. A piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS was embossed with the lovely Falling Petals EF before being adhered to the bottom part of the Bag, while a piece of the DSP was adhered to the top. The handle has been created from a piece of Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon.
I stamped “Just for You” from “So In Love” Stamp Set onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS with Sweet Sugarplum Ink, die cut the circle using the Stitched Shapes Framelits & adhered to a piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS which had been die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits & adhered to the bag where it opened.
The 2 Butterflies were punched from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper using the Bitty Butterfly Punch & the Elegant Butterfly Punch before being adhering to the bag.
I’m happy to say our next lot of Technique Treatsare alive for you to purchase. You will adore these cards. We are playing at creating our own Marbled Paper using Shaving Cream & Marbles. Well, in my case Sinkers, as I don’t have any Marbles, but I do have heaps of fishing gear. Just goes to show you can compromise with what you have on hand.
Thank you everyone for your patience, it has been very much appreciated & thank you to those of you who emailed me with your good wishes. They were very much appreciate too.
I would also like to take the time to thank everyone who purchased our treats last month. Naomi & I were blown away. I’m not sure whether it was the Techniques or Stamp Set but either way, thank you.
This month we are playing with the lovely “Falling in Love” Stamp Set from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. This set is perfect for all occasions, eg wedding, engagement, anniversary or just because. As I’ve said, you will love the cards created using the Techniques & the Stamp Set.
Don’t forget all our Technique Treats are perfect if you want to play in the comfort of your home or if you are a SU! Demonstrator who would love to teach a Technique Class – all the work is done for you! Just head over to the Technique Teats Pageto purchase your Treat.
Kay (USA) says – “Thank you so much for making such wonderful tutorials!!!”
Kris (Brisbane) – “Great card and the Technique Treats are really great”.
Both Kay & Kris are SU! Demonstators, so thank you ladies for your lovely comments.
My nephew got engaged 2 weeks ago so I thought I would try & create a lovely card for them. When I saw the challenge over at TGIFC I knew it was perfect & the perfect excuse to play with some of my new “stuff” that has sort of been sitting in a box on the floor.
My flower was stamped onto Very Vanilla Card with Sweet Sugarplum Ink, coloured with Pink Pirouette & Sweet Sugarplum Markers, blended a little with the Blender Pen & fussy cut. I’m happy with how it turn out. It was popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional, along with the lovely LaceDoily which is White one side & Vanilla the other.
To make it stand out a little more, I then decided to die cut a couple of leaves using the May Flowers Framelits from Sahara Sand Card (love this colour). They were adhered under the flower.
For the inside, I used a little of same lovely “Falling in Love” DSP as the front along with the gorgeous Ribbon which was adhered to a piece of Very Vanilla & then to the inside.
I hope they like the card & thank you to TGIFC for your great challenge.
