INK & INSPIRATION - TECHNIQUE SAVVY BLOG HOP


Hello and welcome to this month's Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Angela Meiritz-Reid from Christchurch, New Zealand. The complete list at the bottom will guide you through all the inspirational projects created by the team.
 
The theme this month is Technique Savvy and I've chosen to showcase three different techniques to create my little gift bag!
 
 
The first technique is Embossing. I've used the new Tufted 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on my gift bag to create this lovely "quilt" effect.
 
The next technique is Heat Embossing. I rubbed the Embossing Buddy over the area, then dipped the tip of my blender pen into the Versamark Watermark Ink from the Refill bottle and made little dots on the Embossed gift bag, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder then heat set it. Remember to use the Embossing Buddy - it really does make a difference!
 
The third technique was cutting out the label and the heart from the Stitched Labels Framelits with the Big Shot.
 
Making the gift bag using the Gift Bag Punch Board could also be considered a technique too - so that makes four!
 

I love how this little gift bag turned out and I'm looking forward to finding the perfect gift to pop inside for my niece's 21st birthday next month!
 
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop. You won't want to miss all the fabulous techniques the team has to share!

CASEING THE CATTY #197 | JOYOUS NOEL


Welcome to this week's CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. Our inspiration this week comes from the Joyous Noel Suite on pages 28-35 of the new Holiday Catalogue.  You may have arrived here from seeing Fi's lovely project if you're hopping along already. If you started here, welcome and please make sure to visit all the Design Team's blogs, the next button at the end of this post will take you on your journey.
 
 
This week my inspiration came from the "sending you our thoughts and prayers" card below on page 35 of the Holiday Catalogue.
 
 
I've used the same colour combination but my little birds and sentiment are from the Petal Palette Stamp Set.
 
 
 I love the simplicity of these cards. They were so quick and easy to make so I made a few!

 
 A twist of gold metallic thread is attached with dimensionals under the sentiment.
