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.

Peggy the Penguin

The sponsor for the CRAFT challenge #619 is JMC Designs and the theme is winter. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

So here’s a summary of the materials:

  • White 300gsm A4 sheet cut, scored and folded to make a base card
  • JMC digital image “Peggy” from the Arctic Adventures collection
  • Die cut stamped sentiment
  • Tacky glue
  • White acrylic paint
  • Paper sheet from the Paper Tree, cut to shorten and overlay
  • ice Spruce ditresss oxide ink
  • Snowflake stamp
  • Chameleon pens (RD2, RD4, YO3, CG9)

I coloured my sweet little penguin “Peggy”with Chameleon pens and cut her out on my scan n cut machine.

I then took the paper sheet from a The Paper Tree paper pad and cut it and then fussy cut around the items at the bottom of the sheet so that it could overlaid.

The stars were a little bit bold so I chose to cover the top part of the paper with a thin coat of white acrylic to knock back the colour slightly.

After layering up the papers I stamped some snowflakes in Iced Spruce Distress Oxide and used this to also ink around the edge before mounting it onto a base card. I added the penguin, a sentiment and a snowflake.
