Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Wrap It Up


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Wrap it Up

We are welcoming the lovely and super talented Maaike aka Cards by Maaike into the Designer Spotlight this month! Please hop on over to say 'Hi' and leave her a nice comment!

Now, here are some gift card bags I made using Gift Card Bag,  Fresh Baked 1, and Tattered Christmas set from Tim Holtz Collection.
These bags are very small and they just fit with regular gift cards.  

I started by diecutting Gift Card Bag out of Neenah Desert Storm paper and assembled card envelopes. I then embellished each bag using stamps and dies about which I have shared details below.

For the mitten bag, I heat embossed Critter Sweaters in white on Peacock Teal Cardstock, then cut using Fresh Baked 1 Dies to make a mitten.  Sentiment from the same set was heat embossed in white and I fussy cut it into banner shape. Stamped Frozen Fractals on the bag using Frayed Burlap.  

For the snowman bag, I assembled a snowman using Fresh Baked 1 Dies. Colored pieces were cut from Neenah Desert Storm paper and I used distress inks and copic markers to color them. For snowy background, I used my White pen to express falling snow and ground.

The tree image was from Tattered Christmas set. I colored the tree using Altenew Brush Markers and waterbrush then I cut it using Tattered Christmas Coordinating Dies. I further embellished my bag using some Pretty Pink Posh Jewels.

So now it’s YOUR turn. 
 Happy Crafting
