This is a GREAT set we could pre-order. Now I can’t put it down. Look what I came up with for my Top 2 in Sales. I found some of these Craft Bags in my stash and knew it would be perfect for their gifts. The cards I made to go with the gift are super simple. I only colored the pot. The ribbon was an afterthought and I should have stamped the congratulations down a bit more. The congratulations is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.
I started with an Oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits (the largest one), die cut from Watercolor Paper. Then got to work on my background. I used the dots from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set. My colors are Lemon Lime Twist & Berry Burst.
Then I stamped the pot with the brushes onto Watercolor Paper with Black Archival Ink (so it won’t smear) and got to work coloring the pot and brushes. I used a variety of ink from the lid to Watercolor Pencils. I used my Aqua Painter & Blender Pen. My Watercolor skills are a work in progress. Then when it was dry (of course I ran it under my Heat Tool) I fussy cut out the whole thing. You can do it! It didn’t take me too long.
I stamped the front of the bag with Crumb Cake Ink and the Scissors in the Crafting Forever stamp set and made a belly band from the 2017-2019 In Color Paper Pack (I love this pack). Wrapped it around the bag (with my goodies inside) and secured with some Fast Fuse. Then I added the new In Color Ribbon, you will want to order some on June 1st, it is yummy! Oops, I forgot to add half a Doily to the belly band, then I used Dimensionals to add my pot and brushes to the belly band.
The last think I did was add the sentiment. I used my 1 1/2″ & 1 3/4″ Circle Punches for that. Don’t you love the sentiment? Do something Creative every day. I get crabby when I can’t stamp. Do you?Jill & Sandy each got a package of Faceted Gems & Glitter Enamel Dots, my two favorite accessories in the new catalog. They fit perfectly into the Craft Bag. Great job Ladies! Hope you enjoy my little gifts.
Everything I used is new with the exception of the Bags. I believe they are still available. All the other products you will be able to order on June 1st. Yeah!!
