Hey there crafty friends. Today, Grace & Evgenia are here with us sharing some beautiful inspiration. Grace has a gorgeous gift bag featuring our Water Lily stamp set! Next, our talented Evgenia shares a lovely shabby chic card! Let’s get started with Grace!
Hi there friends. I am usually a 12×12 scrapbooker. That means that I prefer 12×12 sized cardstock versus 8 1/2×11. But sometimes when there’s a great deal on them, I can’t help but snag a few colors for cardmaking and other papercrafts. One of my favorite things to do with this size of cardstock is to make my own paper bag. With a little addition of pattern paper, border strips, ribbons and stamps, I’m able to personalize my gift bag. With this particular birthday bag, I used the new flower stamp of the month (Water Lily) for a dramatic embellishment.
I stamped the water lily flower on grey cardstock with embossing ink and then heat embossed it with white. I like the dramatic effect of the white embossing that it gives the image. I then added my sentiment on white cardstock and then matted it with pink cardstock.
Flower of the month: Water Lily, Inspired By Stamping
Colonial Rose Satin Ribbon, Inspired By Stamping
Others: Cardstock, Pattern paper, border die cut, pearls, inks
Next up is our talented designer Evgenia with a lovely card using a couple of our sets. We adore her ribbon and beautiful doily! It pairs up perfectly with these stamp sets.
Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today.
Again I went for a shabby look with this card. Used the shade of brown that goes so well with pink.

With paper hugs, Joanna
