I dont normally enter anything more than once but yesterday some more pti goodies arrived so i just couldnt resist.over at this weeks mim http://nicholeheady.typepad.com the theme is partial die stamping. Ive used the new bookmark die once again but this time teamed it with the songbirds stamp set.
I created a full set using these stamp, card ,wrapping paper and gift tag.
So i thought i would have a quick play for the challenge.
Heres what i came up with
I'm still loving the sparkle and shine stamp sets and now that i have the dies too even more so. I will just be using these time and time again. I layered the sparkle die on top of another in white and just offset it a touch to create a shadow effect. I like the simplicity of the card and the same design could be used for birthdays etc, just need to replace 'this christmas'
I threw a quick tag together using the new bookmark die, a cpl of the shaker star dies, stamps from sparkle and shine and button boutique.
I've created something very simple for this challenge, as iam creating a load of tags. So I decided to create a small tag for this challenge using a mini craft cb. I created the background using distress inks and water. The other week I came across a magazine that had a free spell binders stamp set with it, so bought it for the stamp set haha!
This is the first time that I have used it, I stamped the fancy snowflake design on top of the watercoloured background with versamark and then embossed it with wow sparkling snow embossing powder.
I haven't added a sentiment yet as I can't decide if I want one or not, plus it may be for a December birthday and not christmas. It looks really pretty irl.
Edited to add
I stamped the same image stamp onto vellum and embossed it again. Using distress inks onto the back of the vellum.
I simply can't help using me new stamps that I got from pti, just love them.i just had to use them for this weeks festive Friday challenge http://www.festivefriday.blogspot.co.uk here is this weeks inspiration pic
The sparkle word, the bulbs and the tiny sparkly stars are my most favourite of the stamps, I just adore them. This card was so quick and simple but I love it. I couldn't just stop at one card though so I decided to play a little more with the stamps.
I bought some of the plain cotton bags from pti with my last order. I have some inexpensive christmas gifts to give and thought that it would be great to create so e lovely packaging for them.
I placed a sheet of card inside the bags before stamping and they stamped perfectly. I have added a little stuffing inside, the gift and a cpl of choccies :) I think I may do some of these for decoration around the house and also as a christmas countdown for the chloe monster :)
I then created another cpl of bags in a cpl of other colours too.
Absolutely loving these stamps and bags ( I have some more bags on the way too )
