Papertrey Ink August Blog Hop



This is PTI Blog Hop Number TWO for me!!! Woo hoo!!! It was so much fun last month!!! I loved going on all of the blogs and looking at all of the creativity out there.  I just couldn't resist doing it again.  I attended the CHA last month and I beefed up my PTI stamp collection, so I had more design options to work with this time around.  I decided I wanted to do something a little more creative than just a paper bag, so I made a gift card holder FIRST, then a gift bag second.

Here is the gift card holder:



I made the propellers pop up to make it a little more fun! This stamp set (Fly Away Mini) just screams for bright colors, so I had to use reds and blues.  I used my Copics to color everything in.

For the bag, which is the accent to the gift card holder, I also used Copics and some VersaMark in the background for the smaller stars.  I die cut a circle and placed some acetate behind it.  Then, I stamped the "Happy Birthday" sentiment in Staz-On at the top of the acetate.  I used my Crop A Dile to put some gromets into place and then I threaded some twine through both sides to keep the bag shut.  Since I didn't have a gift to put in it yet, I threw in some birthday tissue paper.


Here are the two finished pieces together:

Thanks for looking and I'll be on all of the blogs shortly!!!!
