We 6 Cats - Gift Bag Stocking Filler - Thursday Digi-Stamp Blog Project for Little Claire

Good Morning Everyone! 

It's Sarah here with a new Digi-Stamp Project. I have used parts from the Digi-Stamp - We 6 Cats.

This is a very cute stamp and continuing my theme of dissecting the digi-stamp I have made these fun stocking filler gift bags - which could also be put on the tree!

I filled these with Lindt Lindor chocolates :)

Here is a list of materials and products I used for this project:

Smooth white Card Stock - to print on 
Blue, Red and shiney Green Card Stock
Lawn Fawn Die - Goodie Bag 
Large hole punch
Ribbon and Twine
Glue and Foam Pads

Firstly I cropped 3 of the Digi-Stamp cats (separately) in Photoshop Elements and erased the lines so I had 3 single cats. (Previous tutorial explaining this - here). 

My tutorial this time is to show how you can colour the Digi-stamp on the computer, so when you print it - you are ready to start creating. This is good if you have lots of the same thing to make and no time to colour each image individually. 

Select the paint bucket tool on the left (as picture above) and select the colour you want to use by clicking on the colour square and selecting a colour from the pallet (as picture below). Then click on the part of the digi-stamp you wish to colour and this will fill the whole area in - example above shows the Christmas hats in red.

Carry on doing this with various colours until the whole stamp is coloured in the way you want. This is also handy for trying out colour combinations, if it doesn't work you can just change the colour - rather than have to start your whole project again if colouring by hand. I settled on the colours below.

To make the gift bag I used the Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag die, which you need to cut out twice to make one complete bag. I cut out two in each of the colours - red, green and blue. I then punched out three circles, on one of the die cut card, in each colour. I then cut some acetate big enough to cover the circle and adhered this to the inside of the die cut to make a window. 

Then I used a bone folder to fold along the score lines and glued the tabs with wet glue to assemble. Using wet glue allows me to get the tabs in the correct place as wet blue allows some movement. I made each half first and then glued these two together. 
To finish I die cut some snowflakes and hand cut the cats out. I attached the cats with foam pads to the bag and glued the snowflakes on, adding clear gems to the centre of the snowflakes for a sparkly finish.

I finally filled the bags with the chocolates and then tied the top with ribbon and twine.

Christmas Wish Bauble

Good Morning and Welcome Back! 

Today I am sharing something a little bit different. I have filled some baubles with sparkly sequins and a tiny wish scroll tied with glittery twine

To finish the baubles I added a little poem about the wish and a small metal charm to the loop and tied a beautiful ribbon around the top. These are a limited edition so please let me know if you would like to order any! 

Don't forget to come back on Thursday to see my latest project for the Little Claire blog :)

Lawn Fawl Winter Owl Card using scraps

Good Morning to you All! 

Sorry for the lack of post last week. Had a super busy week and didn't get a chance to blog. This week I bring you a selection of cards made using thw Winter Owl stamp from Lawn Fawn (and using the tree die from the set Snow Day).

I stamped and die cut the owl - coloured with Pro-markers and then sorted through my scrap bag to find Christmas coloured papers for the torn background and to cut the tree out in. I finished by stamping a greeting at the bottom of the card

Thanks for stopping by to take a look, hope you enjoyed the card!

Little Claire's DT Digi-Stamp Challenge # 11 - Anything but a card! - Poinsettia Pillow Box

Good Morning Everyone!
For the Little Claire's DT Digi-Stamp Challenge # 11 - Anything but a card!, I have used the Digi Stamp - Poinsettia. I resized in photoshop and printed out using black ink.

I coloured the poinsettias using Pro-markers and hand cut around the edges leaving a white gap around the stamp. Then using a Sizzix die cut the Pillow Box and wrapped some Christmas colour ribbon and twine round. Attached the digi-stamp using foam pads to create dimension. Might go back later and add some glitter to make it sparkle.

Thanks for looking,

Red and Pink Arctic Penguin card using Mama Elephant stamps

Good Morning! 

Today I bring you a not so traditional Christmas card using pinks and reds for a different feel. I have used the stamp set Arctic Penguins by Mama Elephant - a very cute stamp set.

I stamped and die cut the penguin and accessories, cut out a circle on a red square and embossed this using a dotty background folder. The stamped a greeting and cut into a little banner to finish. 

Thanks for stopping by to take a look, hope you enjoyed the card!
