plain gift bag
white & kraft cardstock
Intense Black Hero Arts inkpad
Onyx Black VersaFine inkpad
Rose Bud Memento inkpad
3D foam pads
Step by step
1 Cut a piece of kraft cardstock slightly smaller than the front of your gift bag and distress the edges. Cut a piece of patterned paper slightly smaller than the kraft panel, distress the edges and affix, then secure this panel to the bag.
2 Emboss a piece of white cardstock and trim to the same height as the patterned paper panel. Distress the edges, layer onto kraft cardstock and again distress the edges. Attach to the bag.
3 Stamp flowers onto white cardstock, colour in and cut out, leaving a narrow border. Adhere in the bottom-right corner of the bag using 3D foam pads.
4 Die-cut a circle from white cardstock, stamp a sentiment in the centre using Onyx Black ink then stamp flowers around the edges using Rose Bud ink. Fix in place using 3D foam pads.

kit stamp set
white 5×7” tent-fold card blank
Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry & Twisted Citron Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink
Twisted Citron Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Paint
Watering Can Ranger Archival Ink
non-stick craft sheet
Step by step
1 Cut a 4×6” piece of white cardstock. Blend Worn Lipstick and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink around the panel, applying several layers of each colour to give good depth to the background.
2 Die-cut a large petal set from white cardstock to create a stencil. Place the stencil onto the inked cardstock then wipe over the open areas of the stencil with a baby wipe to remove some of the ink from the open areas of the stencil. Dry using a heat tool.
3 Cut a 2×4” piece of white cardstock and apply Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink around the edges. Stamp the sentiment three times using Watering Can ink.
4 Add a small amount of Twisted Citron Distress Paint to a non-stick craft sheet, dip a wet paintbrush into the paint then lightly flick it onto the stamped panel. Dry using a heat tool.
5 Adhere the stamped panel to the inked panel, adding cotton threads behind. Matt onto white cardstock coloured with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink, then attach to the card front.

kit embossing folder & stamp set
white A6 card blank
Old Paper, Bundled Sage & Evergreen Bough Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink
clear embossing powder
3D foam pads
Step by step
1 Press the three shades of Distress Oxide Ink separately onto a craft mat, spray each one with a little water and blot an A6 panel of watercolour cardstock into the colours, starting with the lighter shades and drying in between colours. Flick the darkest shade across the cardstock using a paintbrush.
2 Dry thoroughly and dry-emboss in the folder. Rub the Evergreen Bough inkpad flat over the embossed design.
3 Trim the panel to fit the card front, wrapping green ribbon around the top as shown before affixing to the card blank. Add a bow.
4 Stamp the daisy image in Evergreen Bough ink onto a 6.5x7cm panel of watercolour cardstock, cover with clear embossing powder and heat to set. Repeat for the sentiment, stamping with Bundled Sage ink. Paint the centre of the flowers with Old Paper ink picked up with a waterbrush.
5 Blend Evergreen Bough around the edges of a slightly larger panel of cardstock and layer the topper onto it. Attach to the card front using 3D foam pads and add pearls to finish.
