The Eastern Palace Suite Bundles went live last week for all Customers to order. You can order on-line from me at www.stampinup.com and please choose me, Lynn Gauthier, as your Demonstrator.
Stampin' Up also restocked the Clearance Rack last week. There's some awesome, awesome deals.
And, don't forget about the Retiring List of Products.
My share for today is a Mini Vellum Gift Bag that I embellished. I was inspired by a card and a Vellum Gift Bag shown to us by Stampin' Up in a weekly update that Demonstrators receive from Stampin' Up. I changed a few things up; but, basically it's the same layout.
Let's take a look:
Here is the Oh So Succulent card that I made and shared with you on my blog yesterday. If you missed yesterdays blog post or want to see it again click Here.
The picture above is the Vellum Gift Bag that the SU Demonstrator or Designer embellished.
And, here is the Vellum Gift Bag that I embellished to put the card inside. I used a retired Vellum Gift Bag; but, you can use the newer version that Stampin' Up has available in the Annual Catalog. The Vellum Gift Bag that I used is called Sketched Dots.
I trimmed out a piece of Mint Macaron Cardstock to measure 3-3/4" x 4-1/4". I placed a tick mark with a pencil at the center bottom of the panel and a tick mark on each side about 3/4" up from the bottom. I placed the panel in my trimmer and trimmed off the corners from the center bottom tick mark up to the 3/4" tick mark on both sides.
Using SU's Oh So Succulent Stamp Set, I stamped the two smallest Succulents randomly on the panel with Mint Macaron Ink. A great way to make your own Designer Series Patterned Paper.
I folded the top of the Vellum Gift Bag down about 1" and adhered the panel with a thin line of Mono Multi Purpose Glue underneath the fold and directly onto the Vellum Gift Bag.
I folded one of SU's White Doilies in half and adhered it to the top of the Vellum Gift Bag with thin lines of Mono Multi Purpose Glue in the center of the doily only. (Be careful not to get the glue in the holes of the doily as it will glue your flap closed.)
I stamped my Succulents in Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride, Lemon Lime Twist, Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide Inks onto Whisper White Cardstock as shown in the picture above.
Using SU's Succulent Framelits Dies, I die cut out all my stamped Succulents and one large Succulent die cut from Fresh Fig Cardstock as shown in the picture above.
I adhered all the Succulents to my card as shown in the picture above with Mono Multi Purpose Glue except the one large Succulent. I adhered a piece of SU's Succulent Garden 3/8" Ribbon (retiring) with Mono Multi Purpose Glue and then the large Succulents were adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. (Allow you glue to set up some before adhering your ribbon.) It looks like I got a little rough with the Sweet Sugarplum Succulent when I curled the edges. =0
Last but not least, insert your Oh So Succulent card and your ready to give it to someone special.
That's all I have for today. I hope you enjoyed my blog post and thanks for stopping by!
