A gift bag of cards....

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.


  1. Wonderful cards and wonderful gifts! You're so thoughtful.

  2. I LOVE the idea of giving away 4 packs of ready made cards. You wrapped them up so cute! I LOVE that pink card with the silver embossing!!
