HSS From a Card to...




What a fun challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week! They wanted us to make a project based on a card. Well, lucky for me I had to complete a project just like this for a little silent auction on base next month.

I started with the card which was made for a Bellarific Friday challenge at StampingBella.com. I liked the colors together so much (with that pretty flocked SU paper!), that I decided to complete an entire gift set around it.

The notepad set was CASED from a good SCS friend of mine, Gail, who I had the honor of meeting up with in San Francisco last year. She made these little sets for the 4 of us that met up. Not only that, but we ate at Cheesecake Factory AND shopped. I know! The. Best. Day. Ever!

And then I made the little bag to hold it all together. :)

Stamps: Christmastini (Stampingbella.com), sentiment (Papertrey Ink), Merry & Bright (SU)
Paper: Basic Black, Brushed Gold, Whisper White, SU DSP from last year
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copcis to color, PTI Fresh Snow
Accessories: CTMH & Michael's Ribbon, SU Brads, Stickles, MS Snowflake punch, Eyelets, SU Punch

Thanks so much for stopping in. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

awesome gift set! I love the colors you used. How do you get your paper clip topper to stay on? Do you use glue dots or tape? I made one and it fell apart with double sided tape.
