Thank you Challenge

Good morning! This is the ensemble that I made for Stamp Something challenge blog. The challenge that was issued was a Thank You theme. I had taken Lauren Meader's tutorial for a gift bag that you can find HERE. I needed a smaller bag for the soap I was putting into it so I changed the measurements to fit my item. I made the bag again and a matching card for the challenge.

I had purchased Papertrey ink's new Linen Vellum and I really wanted to try it out. It has such a neat look and hand to it as well. This vellum takes ink very well and it was fun and easy to work with. I stamped my vellum with a Papertrey stamp called Floral Frenzy. I love this stamp set - its so light and airy looking. I used CTMH inks which are dye based for this project and they worked beautifully. The sentiment on the gift bag is a preview of an upcoming Stamp of the Month from CTMH that is fabulous.

Here is a side view.

Here is a picture of a standard A2 size card and the gift bag.

Here is a close-up of the card. The tag is a cuttlebug die cut and the sentiment is from the Floral Frenzy set. You can get a sense of what the vellum looks like, but check out the close up coming up.

Isn't the texture cool? Its really very neat looking in person and has a neat texture too. There is a distinct rough and smooth side. I stamped on the "rough" side for my projects.
Thanks for stopping by and please let me know if you would like a tutorial of my version of Lauren's. Have a great day!!

I love the look and colors of these, Katie! I think I like the box better, because I like how the pattern is more open, airier--but I really do like them both!
