I’ve chosen the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper. It’s folk art images combined with the In Symmetry stamp images make it easy to create some fun cards. This stamp set in particular would be great if you are just starting out in stamping as the images mix and match and you can create focal points or backgrounds easily.

I kept the stamping simple, just fussy cutting the images for extra dimension. A thin strip of DSP pleated has been added for a feature.

Cute Christmas Gift Bag

I’ve got the cutest gift bag to share with you. It is so simple and you can easily adapt it for larger sizes. I found the original instructions from Jackie Bolhuis and I have adapted it for metric measurements.

Today is Paper Bag Day and with our Designer Series Paper you can make beautiful paper bags. As it’s Christmas in July, what better time to create some beautiful gift bags to get ready for our busy festive season.

When you want some quick gift wrapping, this bag is definitely something you will go to.

Using just 2 sheets of 6″x6″ paper it takes about 5 minutes to put together.

I’ll be sharing a PDF with measurements for this gift bag in my newsletter this week. You can then print it out and keep it for reference.

Stampin’ for Christmas Blog Hop – July 2021

Seems to be the perfect time for our Stampin’ for Christmas Blog Hop as around the world we participate in various Christmas in July activities. Stampin’ Up! demonstrators have had the perk of seeing and ordering from our new Mini Catalogue with lots of Christmas products. It is as always, beautiful. However, today I’ve got a cute project featuring some Christmas products from our Annual Catalogue.

Our Christmas Time section in the Annual Catalogue is on Pages 88 – 93. There is a gorgeous suite called the Tidings of Christmas Suite which I’ve used to decorate the Soft Succulent gift bag. These Ombre Gift Bags come in a pack of 20 for $10.50 in our new In-Colours.

I embossed the bag with one of the Wintry Embossing Folders. As these are the Mini folders, I ran the bag through twice to ensure the whole bag was embossed.

I die cut a frame from the Ornate Layers dies to create the border along the ribbon which I coloured with Rich Razzleberry ink to coordinate with my project.

The star was die cut from Basic White cardstock and sponged with Rich Razzleberry ink to give a softer tone of colour instead of cutting directly from cardstock. Some leaves die cut from Rose Gold Metallic Paper and Rich Razzleberry Cardstock add to the festive look of this special gift packaging.

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to enjoy some Christmas crafting. Please click on the Next button to see Gez Carpenter’s beautiful project.

Share it Sunday Blog Hop – Expressions in Ink

Hi friend, Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne. It’s my first time taking part in the Share it Sunday Blog Hop where we can share anything we create. I had my first play with the Expressions in Ink Suite and wanted to share it with you on this blog hop.

Share it Sunday Blog Hop Header

The Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper with gold foil running through it, is so pretty it requires very little extra to create a project. I chose a neutral Gray Granite card base with coordinating die cut leaves to balance against the bright colours of the DSP.

The flower was die cut from vellum and embossed with the Dots Embossing Folder. I then took my ink pad direct to the vellum and added Pale Papaya over it. The heat gun sped up the drying process. The centre of the flower was die cut from the leftover from the Ephemera pack.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you have been inspired and please follow the hop through for more crafty ideas.
