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.
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.
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.
Which one is your favorite? I’d love to hear from you. You can view the list of products I used to create these below.
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on June 9th with “Fun Ways to Use Your Stampin’ Up! Products.” Participants showcase at least one of their favorite product tips. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft space.
