Hello and welcome to the first Artisan Design Team Blog Hop for 2018! – I’m stilling pinching myself!
You may have hopped on over from Elizabeth Price over in the USA or joined with me, either way a warm welcome.
I am so excited about the year ahead, and I really don’t have the words to explain how much being chosen for Artisan means to me! I honestly have not stopped smiling since I received the phone call at the end of last year from the Stampin’ Up! home office!? All the build up to the announcement, sharing the news with my friends and family and starting to get to know the team of super talented demonstrators from around the world has already been so much fun and we are only at the start of the year!
For this Gift Bag I have used the Petal Passion Paper to coordinating with the look of the black leaves on the card. This was made with the Gift Bag Punch Board and made up is approx 3-1/8″ wide x 7-6/8″ tall. It was made form a sheet of DSP measuring 9″ x 11″. This is a medium size gift bag and the punch board allows you to made small & large (width) plus you can alter the height between 4″ and 12″ – so this gives you lots of different combinations.
Once I started with these card I couldn’t stop I had some extra embossed sentiments, so I made a set of cards. I think these bundled together with a little treat in the gift bag would make a lovely present?
The card on the left has used a couple of 5cm whisper white strips cut with the banner punch to different lengths. I have stamped with the Amazing You leaves and added the sentiments. Once this banner was complete I have layered them together with a touch of the Petal Pattern paper and Bermuda Bay Ribbon.
On the card in the centre (also shown above), this is a better angle of photo to see the touches of sparkle embossing paste!
For the final card I have simply cut 2.5cm x 10.5cm strips of coordinating cardstock and stamped the leaves peeking out from behind the Lemon Lime Twist card. To finish I have added the sentiments and a bow in the Basic Black Twine.
