Ombre Gift Bags for the Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “2021-2023 New In-Colors.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. Then, at the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.Stampin' Up! Flowers of Friendship Ombre Gift Bag ideas using the 2021-2023 In Colors and Scalloped Contour Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love the gorgeous new Ombre Gift Bags which come in each of the new 2021-2023 In Colors! You can use these for treat or gift bags. I decorated my bags using the Scalloped Contour Dies and Flowers of Friendship Bundle.Stampin' Up! Flowers of Friendship Bundle -visit juststampin.com for inspiration and ordering information - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The Flowers of Friendship Bundle includes the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set and the Flowers & Leaves Punch. The flower imagery of the set mixes simplicity and elegance. It’s perfect for different coloring and stamping techniques. The punch includes flowers and leaf shapes that you can use as you please. Mix them together or layer them up to create a variety of flowers that will embellish any of your projects. You save 10% when your purchase the bundle. The Scalloped Contour Dies are my favorite new dies! (They are part of the Color & Contour Bundle or can be purchase separately.)

The scalloped edge borders in this set range in size, allowing you to decorate a card front or create scalloped labels for your sentiments. They’re fun to layer too! I will be sharing more projects with these dies!

I’m sure you can figure out how I decorated these bags but here’s a few tips. I inked the flower image in Evening Evergreen then masked the flowers (you can use tape, or post it notes to cover the flowers) before stamping on Basic White.

Next I cut it out using the Scalloped Contour Die. I used the Soft Succulent Blends to color in the leaves. Each of the flowers were stamped then punched with the Flowers & Leaves Punch. (*I cut my cardstock to 1 3/4″ strips to make it easier to slide in and punch without a lot of wasted cardstock.)

To add a little depth to the flowers I used my stylus to roll the center of the flower to curl the petals. You could also use a bone folder to curl the ends but for smaller flowers I find this technique easier without creasing the cardstock.

The flowers were adhered with a Mini Glue Dot and I added In Color Jewels to the center of each for a little bling. The In Color Ribbon adds the finishing touch! (This ribbon is gorgeous and so easy to work with to tie a bow without adding bulk!) I popped up the scalloped panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Here’s a look at each one.

Happy Mother’s Day!

I “just want to say” Happy Mother’s Day!
Here’s the card I made for my mom.
Stampin' Up! Art Gallery Dies fun fold Mother's Day card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love word dies and this one from the Floral Gallery Dies has so many possibilities.  Pair it with the Art Gallery Stamp Set and you’ll not only save 10% on the bundle, you’ll also have a variety of sentiments to use for any occasion. Here’s a look at the Art Gallery Bundle.

I used the Well Suited Designer Series Paper for this card. Many of the patterns are more masculine in nature but this navy floral is one of my  favorites. Here’s a look at all the different designs.

You only see a peek at this pretty floral until you open the card.
Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments, All Dressed Up, and Art Gallery Dies fun fold Mother's Day card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I stamped sentiments from Peaceful Moments and Dressed To Impress in Night of Navy ink. I like the way this floral patterned paper coordinates with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder.  It’s hard to see in the photo but I added an embossed layer on the front of the card.
Stampin' Up! Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and Floral Gallery Dies fun fold Mother's Day card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
This card is a quick & easy fun fold to make. The card base is just 1 inch shorter than your basic card size so you can see the designer series paper that’s on the inside. Here’s the details:

Card Measurements:

Night of Navy: 5 ¼ x 3 embossed with Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder,              4 ¼ x 3 ¼ , 3 x 3 ½  to die cut words & flower punch
Basic White: 2 pieces cut at 4 x 3
Designer Series Paper (Well Suited): 5 ½ x 2

Directions:

  1. Fold and burnish card base.
  2. Adhere DSP on the inside of the card along the bottom.
  3. Stamp sentiments in Night of Navy ink on and Basic White. Center and adhere inside. *The front flap should cover the sentiment layer.
  4. Layer embossed cardstock to front of card.
  5. Wrap ribbon around Basic White and tie a bow. Adhere Basic White to Navy and add to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. *Do not add dimensionals along the bottom as it overlaps the DSP from the inside.
  6. Punch flower and add to bow with Mini Glue Dot. Add rhinestone jewel.
  7. Emboss envelope flap with Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

Supplies used:

  • Stamp Set: Peaceful Moments, Dressed To Impress

Whether you’re crafting for a father, grandfather, nephew, or brother, we’ve got all your bases covered with the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit! This month’s kit is the perfect pick for making masculine masterpieces.

Then again, we know that grass-stained pants and sliding into home aren’t just for the boys—this month’s kit is a triple threat!

Bold primary colors and classic pinwheel and pinstripe patterns make product coordination an easy catch! Pair with any of our Father’s Day products—like the Well Suited Suite —for fun Father’s Day cards, use an embossing folder—like the Pinewood Planks or Brick & Mortar embossing folders —to imprint an impressive background, or toss on a little ribbon or thread. Plus, the kit’s exclusive 13-piece stamp set can be used to cheer on any champion—on and off the field!
