Hello Summer by Steph
Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here with a gift bag and coordinating card. It's summer, and I love taking small gifts to neighborhood parties that have been personalized for the recipient.
This Tutti Designs die is amazing, but I wanted it to pop with lots of colors. Using Marigold/Marigold Starstruck and Mocha/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, I die cut the entire design from each. Cutting apart the Mocha die, I used it for the tree trunk, the sand and umbrella stands. Then I used assorted scraps of Rinea Foiled Papers to complete the design - Blush/Blush Starstruck, Gold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, and Emerald/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.
Knowing it would look perfect on a gift bag, I die cut Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper into a large oval and placed it on the gift bag. Then I added the summer design on top. Some tiny art stones added more of a beach feel to the design.
I also lightly inked the gift bag with Pearlescent Ice Blue Ink.
Wanting a matching card, I cut Sapphire/Gold Flossy Foiled Paper to fit the card base and stamped several balloons from the Joy Clair Fly With Me stamp set with Staz On Pigment Ink in Snowflake. Staz On ink dries immediately so there is so smearing and I could continue creating my card.
Using the words from the Mocha die-cut, I placed it atop the balloons.
A great personalized gift set for the recipient don't you think?
Thanks for stopping by.
