The Stamp Review Crew Mixed Bunch Edition

12.14.2014


It's time for another "lets see how you can use it" with the Stamp Review Crew! This week, we're challenged to use Mixed Bunch and I believe you'll be happy with the ideas. Whether you are starting here or have just landed from Beth Beard's blog, welcome to my little page on the internet! I hope you will enjoy the projects I share here :)

For my first project, I thought I'd share a little gift idea. Whether you need teacher gifts or a little something for a co-worker or neighbor, this might do the trick.


To decorate this Tag a Bag Gift Box, I created a belly-band out of card stock and used a card sketch from Deconstructed Sketch to help me decorate. Although you can barely see it, one of the large flower-like images from this set was stamped onto the tissue paper holding the candles in the box. It was also used on a scrap of white card stock and punched out with a circle punch, creating the starburst looking image behind the ribbon knot.


This simple card uses one of the smaller images in the set. I stamped it with Basic Gray on the tag - stamping off once onto scrap paper before stamping on the tag. Then I stamped and heat embossed the same image on a scrap of paper and punched it out using our 1" Circle Punch. Along with the Silver Embossing Powder, a 1/8" Mini Brad adds a little sparkle. Need more sparkle? Check out the 1/8" Silver Taffeta ribbon at the top of the tag :)

Here's the completed set:

    1. Thank you, Mike! I'm trying to think 'out of the box' a little, something you do quite well with your projects. I'm not quite there yet... but one step at a time :)

  7. I just love this duo! The candle box is quite elegant, while your card is more grungy, even reminding me of school work (which has a strange soft spot in my heart). Love!

    1. Thanks, Heidi. You know what? That grid paper made me think of school things as well. I originally planned to try and make this into a "yay you made it through exams" card for my son but got de-railed by the silver embossing :)
