Gift set

Hi everyone. Thanks for stopping by. This is a little gift set I made for a friend’s birthday as I know she appreciates the work that goes into them.

I made the box and a band to hold everything together. The box was decorated with a Tim Holtz stencil. Just building up the layers and colours. So inside this box are the 6 cards/notelets below which I’ve showcased some JMC stamps.

Alongside these cards I didn’t want to leave the envelopes blank so I also decorated those as well!

The recipient was thrilled with her gift so it made the work worthwhile.

So here’s a summary of the materials used to make the card:

  • Digital image
  • JMC stamps
  • Chameleon stamps
  • High tack glue
  • Card bases – 300gsm
  • Distress oxide inks
  • Stencils

I hope that you feel inspired and it would be lovely to read you comments. Tell me how you would feel if you received this as a gift.

CRAFT challenge #585 – Love/Valentines

Welcome to this weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge is on for one week and the theme for this challenge is Love/Valentines. The sponsors for this challenge are All Dressed Up.

This gorgeous girl is coloured with Chameleon pens (NU1, PK2, NU00, NG4, PK3, GR1, NU2, BR1, WG3) and Nuvo pen 487. I felt the sentiment stamp “all you need is love” summed up the love/Valentine theme for this challenge. I rounded the corners of my topper and inked it in a toning colour, rounded the corners of the silver mat and mounted it onto a floral card to set off the flowers in her hair.

Let’s see what creations you come up with – there are always some fabulous ideas out there. Good luck!
