Just Add Ink #585...Christmas Gift Packaging!


Merry Christmas all!

This is our final Just Add Ink challenge for 2021 and its all about Christmas packaging this week.  It will Run for 2 weeks and is "Non" voting and finishes 29th Dec.

A huge thank you to everyone that popped by my blog and left some lovely comments throughout the year. It is always a pleasure to read them and definitely brings a smile. xx

So my festive packaging is some cute little "BonBons". I originally saw this idea on a share from "We R Memory Keepers" you can find that Here on Instagram.

I've used the Stampin Score Board to create these, with Seasons Blessings & Painted Christmas dsp and Soft Succulent cardstock for the bases.

Trimmed them up with some Stitched circles, stamped with Evening Evergreen and some foliage in Soft Succulent-Evening Evergreen & Be Dazzling specialty paper, diecut with Poinsettia petals & Frosted foliage (retired).

Keep safe everyone and have a fabulous Christmas and l look forward to seeing you all in 2022! xx

Just Add Ink #584...Christmas Gift Card Holders/Tags!


Good Morning friends!

This week over at Just Add Ink we are challenging you to create a festive project for a gift card or tag.

Getting into the Christmas spirit, l have created two cute packaging ideas that l plan on filling with choccies and a gift card and l have added tags to both.

Lots of fun & festive projects from the design team, so don't forget to click the link and check them out!

The first one uses the pretty leaf dsp from the Painted Christmas dsp pack, Basic White and Kraft cardstock for the box/bag and Poinsettia (Poinsettia Petals) and Pear Pizazz and Garden Green for the foliage.
Ribbon detail is a really old Wild Wasabi grosgrain and Gold trim and a Brushed Metallic dot for the flower centre. Tags are the Tailor made tag dies and l have used a 1" circle punch for the finger slot.

And for the second one l have used the Peaceful Prints SAB dsp and Real Red & Crumbcake cardstocks.
Some retired White Grosgrain Ribbon & Twine from my stash.

To create these, l followed a tutorial on Youtube, from Allison Primmer-Bradley
You can find that Here.

Stamp Review Crew...Festive Foliage!


Evening friends!

Stamp Review Crew are hopping and for this one we are sharing our projects created with the lovely "Festive Foliage" background stamp.

I have used my Soft Succulent inkpad and stamped on Soft Succulent cardstock to create a festive and coordinated background panel.
To decorate l've gone with the the "Words of Cheer" bundle, coloured with stampin blends in Soft Succulent-Evening Evergreen-Polished Pink-Fresh Freesia, mounted on a stitched circle panel.

Diecut foliage is "Poinsettia Petals in Be Dazzling specialty paper & Frosted Foliage(retired) in Evening Evergreen.

If you are happily hopping, you would have arrived here from the fabulously creative Holly Krautkremmer and l'm sure she had something amazing to share!
