Vintage Christmas Gift

Hi All!

Wowzers! Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments on my Whimsy blog hop post! The DT and I really enjoyed having the chance to share these new holiday stamps with you. If you haven't had a chance to participate in the hop, you still have until Noon EST on Thursday this week. Great prizes up for grabs throughout the hop and then the grand prize is here on my blog. Winners will be announced Thursday afternoon.


Today I wanted to share another project I created using these new stamps. This time I created a little gift tote and a matching card using the Poinsettia from the set Vintage Christmas by Crissy Armstrong.

I created this gift set with some kraft card stock and BG Jovial papers. On the card, the edges have been stitched on the sewing machine and then I embellished with flowers, ribbon, and sticky gems. I found the tutorial for this tote bag on Splitcoast Stampers. Super easy and I think it will make a great gift card holder. But you could also use it to hold matching note cards or little candies or something else. To see the tutorial, click HERE. The tote uses the same Jovial papers with stitched edges and is embellished with brads and then filled with shredded party bag filler. The images of the poinsettias were cut and made 3D with foam tape and I added some gold glitter pen accents.

Thanks for stopping by today. If you've been to the Whimsy shop you might have noticed we are low or out of stock on some of the new stamps. They are on order with our manufacturer and should be here later this week.

Have a great Tuesday!
