I selected to feature the adorable stamp set called Deer Friends. It's a great little set that is perfect for coloring and includes three cute little critters, some leafy elements, some woodsy items and a mixture of words with fun fonts!
I created this adorable little gift bag for a friend. The glassine bag looks awesome against the metallic shine of the Rinea foil, don't you think? Let me quickly share how I created my little giftie!
I first rubbed the Ghost Ink over the edge of the Rinea foil. I used the Teal/Gold foil from the Peacock Variety Pack. I let it air dry for about a minute or so and then took a dry paper towel and rubbed the teal color off. This ink works wonders and using it always reminds me of when I remove my fingernail polish with fingernail polish remover! HA HA! It has no scent- so that is a perk!
So after I rubbed off the blue, I stamped the leafy vine onto the Ghost pad and stamped directly over the paper. I wanted to create a layered effect. After that, I stamped the same image over that with black ink.
The next step was to score about a half inch space from the bottom of the foil and used my scissors to fringe the bottom. I wanted my foil to have a fringed look to give added texture as well as help the gold color on the back peek through!
I attached the foil panel to a piece of white cardstock for extra "sturdy" support and then attached it to the glassine bag.
I stamped and colored the little fox using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and my Copic markers then cut it out. I added a little heart to his chest because I though he needed it. :) Next, I tied some orange and teal Hemptique twine around the bag.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock cut into a pennant shape with Memento Black ink and VersaClair ink. I popped the fox and the tag onto the bag with foam squares and filled up my gift bag with some crinkle paper and a new pad of Rinea Ghost Ink. Now, I have a sweet treat to gift a friend! Please head on over to Angie's blog to see her newest creation!
