CASE challenge 9 – teeny gift bags

Aren't these teeny gift bags the cutest?!  This week we're casing the lovely Andrea Gutzmer, check out the info here.   I just love her teeny bags using DSP and cardstock for little sweetie pouches.  I decided to make my version a little smaller, as I had some Fererro Rochers just crying out for cute packaging.  I also decided to use coordinating cardstock for by bottom half rather than white, as I wanted a nice contrast with the Designer Series Paper top. I started with the Frosted Floral Speciality DSP and selected Blackberry Bliss and Powder Pink as my coordinating colours [...]

Box of cards to cheer up a friend

Last weekend I held a team event with my awesome Stampin' Starlets to show them my new home.  It was fabulous catching up with them as it's been a while since I've seen many of them.  One of my friends couldn't make it as she ended up unexpectedly in hospital, and she was much missed by the whole group.  To show her how much we love and miss her, I suggested that we all make a mini card and write a little note of encouragement inside.  We had great fun making 3"x3" cards, using the "Thinking of You" sentiment [...]

I had some foam [...]

Artwork for a lovely couple

Did you all have a lovely weekend?  I certainly did!  You'll remember on Friday I was making a card for the wedding I was going to, well now I can show you the gift I made for them.  This is a piece of artwork showing their names and the date of the wedding.  I decided to go for silver and gold as the theme as I didn't know what colours feature in their house, and metallics go with anything, don't they?! I had a 12x12 canvas which I used as the base, then covered it with a sheet of the [...]
