Christmas Gleaming - 8" Fold Flat Gift Bag - Video Tutorial


In today's Video I show you how to create another Fold Flat Gift Bag. This is a larger one than you have seen from me before. It measures 8" wide and high and 3" deep.

I used the Christmas Gleaming stamp set for the images and sentiment and papers from the Pointsettia Place Designer Series Paper pack.

The Holly and Berries were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured using the Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers. These were cut out by hand.


I love Fold Flat Gift Bags, they are so much easier to store until you actually need them.

Here is the Video ...

Prized Peony - 5" x 7" Card Box - Video Tutorial


I'm sharing another Video with you today. This time it shows you how to create a different size Card Box. This one will hold a 5" x 7" card.

This isn't a size I make that often but it is one of our standard sizes and is very popular :o)


I used the Prized Peony stamp set again to decorate it. The idea was just to create a box to hold the Shaped Easel Card I created in my last Video (HERE) - but I ended up making another one too :o)


The main colour used here was Seaside Spray ... and I made a 'normal' side-opening rectangular card this time but kept the layout the same as for my Shaped Easel card.


Here is the Box and card together. This card is actually smaller than 5" x 7" but it's bigger than a standard card, so the Box is fine for it.

You can find the details for the card HERE.



The colour used for this one was Rococo Rose.

Here is the Video ...


Measurements

Rococo Rose – Base                                                   8” x 6   

Thick Whisper White – Lid                                        8 3/16” x 6 3/16”

 

Score the Base and Lid at ½” on ALL sides                 

          

 

Ribbon approx..                                                          11” (28cm)

 

 

You will also need additional Whisper White and Rococo Rose card to complete this project.

Beautiful Friendship - With The In Colours


Today's card is one I didn't think I would be showing you :o)

I used the Beautiful Friendship stamp set and all of the newest In Colours.

I didn't like it at all when I first started the stamping. I really struggle with Magenta Madness - it's just too bold a colour for me even though I love bright colours. It's quite satisfying though when I create something with it that I actually like.

I didn't stop stamping and continued to use all the In Colours - I thought I might as well finish the panel ... and then I liked it :o) It's bold and busy, but the overall effect for me is good - so I ended up using the panel in a card.


The ribbon is our Bumblebee Gingham.

The speckles were stamped using the splatter stamp from the Waterfront set.
