For my first project - I was inspired by these nut bags
My stamps are from Rubbernecker I just love this beautiful snowflake and the font on this sentiment! I added a rhinestone to the center of the snowflake and tied blue/white twine around the top. My bag is 3 3/4" x 6 1/4". from Papertrey Ink.
I used Versafine Ink to stamp the images and I used my hot gun to help the ink dry - I think I'll leave this over night to be sure that it does dry - you may have to sample different kinds of ink if you stamp on a coated bag to be sure it dries.
My second inspiration was a faux wood covered thermos
I stamped the basket, cut it out, sponged the edges and adhered it under the flowers. I sponged the edges of the panel and added pearls to the centers of the flowers. The basket and flowers are from a Rubbernecker set called Create a Garden
I cut the sentiment with my key tag punch, then punched a hole on the side with my horizontal slot punch (I haven't used this punch in years!) and looped 4 colors of twine through the slot. I adhered the tag to the card with foam tape. The Thinking of You sentiment is also from Rubbernecker.
This card is 3 x 5 1/2" so it will still fit into a regular A2 envelope even with the tag and twine sticking off the edge of the card.
For my final card - I was inspired by these Bartender Invites
Instead of drinks and appetizers - I used a row of teapots.Rubbernecker set called Tea Time Set. Inside I stamped "brewing up a birthday wish for you" perfect for a tea-loving friend! I added a rhinestone to the top of each of the teapots.
I hope you'll stop by on Nov 1st - the Waltzingmouse Design team will be having a 4 day SoAP (Stamp of Approval Parade) using previously released WMS Christmas Stamp sets!
