Good morning crafters and welcome to a new crafty week here at Stampin' Sarah HQ. My week has been thrown all out of whack by my other half having yesterday off work. It felt like a Sunday and subsequently my blogging schedule for the week has been thrown off course. But I have lots of lovely makes to share with you so be sure to check back to catch up with what I have been making.
I caught up with some lovely friends on Saturday for a Stampin' Up! crafty party. We had a good natter, cookies and crafting too. It was a lovely afternoon. Today's crafty share is the gift set I made for my hostess for the afternoon.
I made this gift set using the Endless Wishes stamp set and I created a card, gift bag and tag.
For the card I used the block inking technique. I simply pressed my acrylic block in to my Pool Party and Soft Sky ink pads and then created a background by pressing the ink to my Whisper White card base. I then stamped the snowflakes in Island Indigo and Encore Silver. I embellished with Basic Jewels (some of which I coloured with my darkest Night of Navy Blendabilities pen).
The sentiment is taken from the Another Thank You photopolymer stamp set.
Here is the complete gift set complete with a stamped paper bag in matching Island Indigo and Bermuda Bay. I took Summer to a local bakery just around the corner on Saturday morning and I am teaching her to ask and pay for her own treats. She proudly produced her £1 from her pocket and we asked the lady for a sausage roll which was presented to her in this brown paper bag. I instantly realised it would be perfect for my hostess gift. So I quickly nabbed it for embellishing and stamping ;0) Summer didn't mind. She just wanted to tuck in to her tasty treat.
Here is a closer shot of the gift tag. For this I added an extra bit of bling by using one of the lovely All is Calm Snowflake Embellishments. I cut the tag with my Scallop Tag Topper Punch.
