Gift Bags For Someone Special

I recently jazzed up these gift bags for some special people in my life and sent some lovely homemade bath crystals in them. 

I bought these little bags and wanted to jazz them up a bit so made a band to go around them and a little tag to go with it. 

Here is what I used:

Cardstock/Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White
Stamps: Make a Difference
Ink: Lemon Lime Twist, Memento Black
Tools: Tag Punch (retired), Watercolour Pencils and Aqua Painter
Embellishments: 1/4" Copper Trim

The sentiment says "Made with Love" if you can't make it out.  I love this set for sending all kinds of handmade goodies!

Thanks for popping by,

Colour INKspirations #35

Wow it sure is cold at the moment and this current challenge suits the mood!  The challenge over at Colour INKpirations was to use the new neutral colour palette - choose any 3 colours and add basics.

I don't have all the new colours yet (way to many things I want to buy!), but I used Night of Navy, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate (Whisper White was my basic).  I needed to stock up on some sympathy cards so here is what I came up with.

I can't believe I hadn't inked up this set yet!  Here is what I have used:

Cardstock/Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy
Stamps: Beautiful You
Ink: Basic Gray, Night of Navy, Smoky Slate
Tools: Aqua Painter
Embellishments: Silver Sequins (retired)

Really quite basic - coloured the lady with the aqua painters and inks.  The top two layers are on dimensionals as well.

Just Add Ink #413

Back with another challenge card today.  I have joined in over at Just Add Ink for challenge #413 which was a colour challenge.

I have taken my inspiration from a card I saw on Pinterest by Trish at Spring Blossom Journey Thanks for the inspo!  Here is my card:

Here is what I have used:

Cardstock/Paper: Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Basic Black, Lemon, Lime Twist
Stamps: Love What You Do, Picture Perfect Birthday, Birthday Backgrounds
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Memento Black, Basic Grey, Lemon Lime Twist, Pacific Point
Tools: Big Shot, Seaside Embossing Folder, Dots Embossing Folder (not SU), Star Punches (retired)
Embellishments: Twine

Now you will see there is no mention of Granny Apple Green and that is because I haven't ordered mine yet!  There are so many new things I NEED that this hasn't made the shopping cart yet.... but it will be in my next order as I love all things green!

Thanks for popping by,
