I made gift bags of cards (4 in each bag) for Christmas. Each bag had the cards, envelope and a Gel Pen. The cards were copied after samples of cards I saw on various sites/blogs. (Yea, 2012 resolution--- I will create my own designs....
Starting with the bags, I took blue cardstock and sprayed it with liquid pearls. I tied Baker's twine from Scrappy Mom's around it. The little penguin is from Paper Trey Ink. I used a glitter pen on the snowflakes to bling them up. The tag was cut from a Spellbinder Nestabilities die cut. There is a Happy Holidays sentiment stamp from Stampin' Up on each tag
Here is one card: I used a Paper Trey Ink newspaper stamp. This card was on a prior blog but I re-created it again for my gift bag sets.This was actually created by Creations by Christina. [Christina makes great videos-- and is really creative, with PTI products and Cricut stuff.] I actually put two of the same image on top of each other to give it a bigger impression of a 'stack.' I put distress ink on the edges. The sentiment came from a clear stamp from Michaels (Hero Arts) and was put on a Spellbinder Nestability diecut. The twine is from Paper Trey Ink.
This is a lovely stamp from Paper Trey Ink. I love this stamp. I saw it on a sample card from Nichole Heady (of PTI) and actually recreated it with many different colors. I believe the sentiment is an Inkadinkadoo sentiment that is stamped on a Paper Trey Ink Die cut and stamp outline.
This is another sample card I saw on Nichole's site (see link above). I love this die cut from Paper Trey Ink. I then used the PTI Mendhi stamp inside the squares using VersaMark.
You have seen this sample before, when I did a Thank You card series. I silver embossed these images on Pink watercolor paper. The pink background is a combination of Distress stains. The sentiment came from Lawn Fawn. The die cut is Spellbinder Nestabilities.
