Hey Stampers !!
Happy Weekend !! We were "lucky" enough to have a snow day yesterday, so I got to finish all of my prep for my January Stamp Club !! And almost 2 weeks early !! I am so happy with myself. LOL The project I am showing you today is my Hostess gift (So of you are Barb, stop reading this now ... hahaha). I got the layout idea for this (kind of) from a card in the Saleabration brochure. It started out that way, but I kind of went with my own ideas after that. Inspiration can come from anywhere though, so I just go with it ! Enough chatter ... here is my cute treat bag !!
Cool, right ? I think it turned out great. I die cut the Fancy Favor Bigz Die (my FAVORITE die that if they ever retire I will be so depressed) in 12"x12" Rich Razzleberry cardstock (I used textured, cause thats what I had on hand ... but it doesn't matter) and put it together as normal. Then I took a wide strip of the awesome Sycamore Street DSP, which will be free with a $60 order during Saleabration, and cut a big flagged end on one side. I used the pattern of the paper to figure out how wide I wanted it to be, and I knew I wanted the banner end to hang off the side so all of the measurements were just eyeballed. I then used my 1-3/8" Circle Punch to punch a hole. A 1-1/4" Circle punched in a scrap of Tangerine Tango layered behind it made it really stand out. I stuck a thin strip of Pool Party cardstock that I punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch along the bottom, and then my layer was ready. I put a scrap of Whisper White onto the box where my punched circle was going to be, and then adhered my banner with some dimensionals. Very cute ! Love the design of this DSP.
Now for my stamped pieces ! I stamped the cute flower image from the Madison Avenue in Summer Starfruit ink onto a scrap of Summer Starfruit cardstock, and then die cut it with the smallest framelit from the Floral Frames collection. Love when stamps match framelits !! I then fluffed up the die cut, and put a cute Rich Razzleberry button from the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button pack in the centre. One of the brand new Large Rhinestones fits on those buttons perfectly, so I had to add that right !?!? LOL Love those new big jewels !! I added 2 stacked dimensionals to the flower so it would rise about the raised banner piece, and it worked out great !! I then stamped the cute friend sentiment (found in the Fabulous Phrases stamp set) onto a scrap of Whisper White and die cut it with the Bitty Banners framelits. I laid that banner onto a scrap of Tangerine Tango and fussy cut a slim layer around it. That tiny touch of Tangerine really makes the banner pop !! I added a couple pieces of the fun Sycamore Street Pool Party ribbon with the banner, tucked it in behind my flower. Love that new ribbon !! A bow of the same ribbon in the upper left corner adds a nice flirty touch as well. The last touch (a lot of steps for this project !! Phew !!) is a tiny scalloped flower from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack in Rich Razzleberry cardstock on the friend banner. Voila !
I then filled the bag with these cute Ghirardelli chocolates that I had covered with the DSP. Yummy and pretty !! LOL
Thats my cute project for today! I hope my Hostess this month (my sister in law Barb ... hahaha) loves it as much as I do !! Thanks a lot for dropping by today and Happy Stamping !!
