Hi Stamping Friends!


There are just 2 More Days to register for my October Stamp-of-the-Month Class featuring the For All Things stamp set.  I've already posted details about 3 of the 5 projects we'll be creating at the class:  Diagonal Color Me Autumn Card, Oak Leaf Border Card, Recessed Deco Window Card.

Class is October 9.  Pre-paid registration is due September 26, 2014.
Today, I'm sharing the cute little Petite Café Gift Bag that we'll also be decorating at the class. 
Pssst!  Don't forget that I have Class-To-Go Kits available, too!

If you enjoy making and giving homemade treats for the holidays, you will love the new Petite Café Gift Bags featured in the Holiday Catalog!  These cute, kraft treat bags are poly-lined to be food-safe and they are easy-to-close with a fold-down tin tie.  They measure 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 8" to hold lots of yummy goodies or small gifts!  And, you get 10 bags for only $5.95!  What a value!
Oh, did I mention that they are really fun & easy to decorate?!

Background Basics—I stamped my entire bag with the acorns from the For All Things stamp set in Soft Suede ink. You could actually stop right there and have a sweet little gift bag that's easy to duplicate for large events.

Autumn Banners—I cut a piece of Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper to a 2" x 3-1/2" banner and I also cut a 3/4" x 4" banner from the same paper pack.  I layered them and attached them to the bag with a piece of Cajun Craze Color Me Autumn Washi Tape.  It's functional and adds another pop of color! 

I decorated the banners with a Gold Basic Metal Button, attached with Glue Dots, and a double Linen Thread bow, also adhered with a Glue Dot over the top.

Give Thanks Label—I stamped the watercolor wash image from For All Things in stamped-off Soft Suede ink onto a Circle Collection Framelits die-cut from Whisper White card stock.  Then, I stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow over the top and added the acorn image in Cajun Craze next to it. 

It's adhered with Dimensionals on top of a Deco Labels Collection Framelit die-cut in Soft Suede card stock, and popped up with more Dimensionals over the banners. 

Finally, I added a few Gold Sequins to the label with small dabs of Multipurpose Glue.

Two Cool—For my second version, I used the branch cluster image to stamp the bag.  Check out my photo of the back of the bag above and you can see how pretty it is with just the stamping alone.

The banners on this bag are cut from the same Color Me Autumn papers, but I flipped the acorn paper to the opposite side to show the Mossy Meadow mottled design.  I changed up the stamping on the circle by using the branch in Mossy Meadow and a different sentiment in Cajun Craze.
