Hello friends! Today is blog party day with Waltzingmouse Stamps and I'm so excited to party along with other fans! If you're new to this whole thing, head over to the WMS blog to find out more and if you're early enough, there will still be time to play along!
The theme for this month's party is "Gratitude" and I chose to use this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge sketch inspired by Mischief Maker, Karin Akesdotter!
I just received my new Vintage Garden - Seed Packet and wanted to make a little thank you gift bag for a friend. I recently unearthed these wonderful vintage-inspired treat bags (a little bigger than a scone bag from a coffee shop or bakery) and thought they'd be perfect for the project I envisioned. I stamped the seed packet and two sentiments from the set onto a piece of cream cardstock and distressed the edges with a tool and some ink. I also misted the panel (and my hand) with some Tattered Angels. :) I haven't yet figured out a good place to mist so try to do it carefully over a trash can in my studio (over cream carpet - yikes!) I stamped the carnation on some pale pink cardstock and then inked over it with a little bit of the same distress ink to tone down the pink. I finished the little bag with some crochet trim and two stickpins.
Thank you so much for visiting today and I can't wait to see the projects you create both for the blog party and the sketch challenge! Link up to the sketch challenge by Friday and one random participant will be selected to win a stamp set of their choice from WMS! How cool is that?!
