Sweetness & Sunshine Gift Bag

Every now and then, someone will need a little extra sunshine in their life.  While this super cute, and little, gift bag is perfect for a variety of smaller items, the thing I was most excited about, was to fill it with packets of flower seeds.  This inexpensive gift is a perfect little something for a new neighbor, or a friend who loves gardening.

This sweet little gift bag was created using the Lots of Dots Die set from Fun Stampers Journey.  It's the perfect size to hold a card, and a little something extra.

I started today's project with two panels cut with the Lots of Dots Die.  I used white liner tape to adhere them together into a bag, with strips of the same color card stock that were 1-1/2" wide, and scored at 1/4" on either side.  I created the handles with a 8" piece of ribbon, woven through the holes, and simply knotted together inside.

I cut the two Treat Labels, and then stamped the sun, onto the Whip Cream label, in Banana Cream ink, and the sentiment in Sweet Berry ink I added the Sparkle Silk, and then layered the pieces together using Foam Squares.

This bag would make playing with different colors of tissue paper a lot of fun, since you could get peeks of other colors through the holes.

Mixed Media Leafy Thank You Card

I love mixed media, really I do.  But I often have issues with the whole messy, and "ugly till it's finished" aspect of mixed media.  I want it to be pretty (immediately) and clean!  One easy way to accomplish this, is to add a mixed media element to your card, that keeps the messy aspect contained.   

Add a artsy mixed media element, while still creating a clean and simple card by using die cuts.  Created using Fun Stampers Journey dies, inks, and paper.

For today's card, I started with a piece of Whip Cream card stock, that I die cut the Summer Branch die out of.  Then I sprayed that die cut with Lemon Grass, Cool Pool, and Blue Lagoon Splashes, and splattered it with Turbo Teal Silk.  I dried that piece, and made a card base from Whip Cream card stock.

I used the Cool Pool PanPastel on the card base, under the area that I planned on adhering my branch.  Then I adhered the branch onto the card base, and trimmed the excess "stem" that hung over the edge of the card.  I splattered some Sparkle Silk over the card front, and then added the die cut Thank You sentiment.
