This is the first and the theme is: wrap it up, showcasing Tim Holtz Products.
I made two projects: a giftbag and gift tags.For the giftbag I use a box or a stack of cd cases or even en reem of paper.
I like to use wrapping paper, but designer paper will work, as long as it's bendable and won't break.
I stamped the image with Staz-on black ink as the paper is a bit smooth, and this way I'm sure it won't smear. Set it aside to dry whilst I make my matching tags.
Well I should say somewhat matching, because I made a proper night sky with a full moon.
I applied Distress oxides: black soot, chippped sapphire and blueprint sketch.
Applied the moon on the tag the same way.
The Santa Sleigh is very long, so I decided to divide the scene into three tags, all different, but matching. I thought it would be cool for one person to get all three tags on their gifts.
After all the inks were dry I first cut the paper into three pieces, then cut the angles on a slant and pierced the tag hole in it.Materials used:
First I must say what an honour it is to be the Wednseday Challenge Guest designer for Simon
As always if you play along and link up your creations, you might win a $50 gift card to the Simon Says Stamp Store.
Wahtever fits your needs. So excuse my mash in a bag, it;s not a culinary highlight I know, but sometimes comes in handy.
I basically wrap paper around the box and tape it shut on three sides, burnish the folds on the corners, I tend to use tape runner and or double sided tape, glue gun even.
To personalize my bag I stamped the Tim Holtz stamp Santa Sleigh (K6-2435) from Stampendous and applied a full moon.
To make the moon I've used Stazon cotton white and although I reinked it was very dry, but perfect for the look of the moon surface. I've used a mini ink blending tool to "stamp" my moon by dipping the foam on the inkpad.
I thought the giftbag was a little too big to inkblend the whole front.
Then I splattered with water and Distress spray stain Brushed pewter and Dylusions white linen
At this time it's still one half sheet of thick white card, I will cut it into tags after it's complete.
Instead of names, find the matching tags? ..maybe not..
There are dies that do this, but I don't have them this big ;-).
