If you have arrived here from Enfys at GOING BUGGY, you are in the right place! And even if you didn't then go and start at GOING BUGGY and come back here to hop along with us! Make sure you go through to the end of this post for more instructions on how to enter for my giveaway and continue with the blog hop.
Welcome to my first blog hop participation, and yes I am nervous! *okie holds up finger nails she has chewed as proof of her nervousness* Make sure to check out the whole post because at the end there are instructions on what you need to do to continue along the hop.
My project for the blog hop is a card and matching gift bag.
Stampin Up stamp set and scallop circle punch
Cricut cartridge Forever Young
Cricut Design Studio
Martha Stewart border punch
I didn't stamp any sentiments on the card and bag because I thought this way it could be used for birthday or general use.
The gift bag is one from Walmart that comes in a pack of 10. I only decorated the front since it is only the front that really matters. I used some pink tulle to add a little extra embellishment on the bag handle and then behind the hat.
The image for the card is a Stampin Up! set that I got at a stamp sale a few years back. I love this set because it is just so fun looking.
I used the following ProMarker colors:
Hat: Lipstick Red, Antique Pink
Boa and flower: Dusky Rose, Baby Pink, Lemon
Dress and hat band: Pear Green, Marsh Green
Skin: Oatmeal, Blush
Hair: Tan, Cinnamon
Outer shading: Ice Grey 1
I added 2mm heat set rhinestones for the necklace and a 3mm for the ring.
I used Forever Young for the cut for the hat. I thought it matched the one on the card nicely and tried to use colors as close as I could find that matched the colored stamped image on the card. I did have to use the hide contour feature in Design Studio so I could cut the band and the yellow center. The green leaf is hand cut because otherwise it would have been red like the hat base.
I shaded around the edges of the hat with the Lipstick Red ProMarker and then Baby Pink on the flower. I used a 5mm heat set rhinestone to add to the middle of the flower. The scallop circle is a 2 3/8" Stampin Up punch.
For my giveaway today I have a set of 12 ProMarkers and 1 ProMarker Wallet. Now don't get excited you are NOT getting the markers in the wallet, those are mine. But at least you will have 12 to get you started if you win! *okie waits to hear the ooo's and ahhh's* So make sure you follow the directions in order to win! Deadline to enter for my prize is Saturday, January 22nd at 6 pm.
