Gift Bag

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

For my creation this week I decided to make a gift bag.

I’ve opted to use a pre-coloured image this week called Enchanted Dream.

I printed my image onto X-Press It Blending Card and cut it out using the Oval Framelits from Stampin’ Up!. I’ve added 2 additional layers one in Smoky Slate and the outer scallop layer in Pistachio Pudding, both from Stampin’ Up!. The layers have some paper piercing added to them too.

The bottom layer consists of some Smoky Slate Pattern DSP layered onto a piece of Pistachio Pudding cardstock. I added some lace to the top edge and then a piece of seam binding as well as a bow made with the same seam binding. Some Wild Orchid Craft flowers in the bottom corner finish off my bag.

Here’s a close up of the image…

I have created a Birthday themed item today using the Shape EZ ‘Rolled Bag’ template.

The template was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo using some Gingham Garden DSP from Stampin’ Up!. My image is ‘Penny’s Presents’ which is from the Candibean Collection by Little Darlings. I have stamped the image onto X-Press It Blending Card using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured with my Copic Markers. My image has then been layered onto a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock and adhered to the bag using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is from the ‘Gifts of Kindness’ stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and has been stamped in Island Indigo ink and punched out using the Decorative Label punch. I’ve added some Rhinestones, a few flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and some Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon to complete my project.

Here’s another photo…
