Heartfelt Creations

We just received the products from "Creative Expressions" for this month's DT makes. This month we have the brilliant "Bold Bella Rose PreCut Set" and the "Bella Rose Dies" from Heartfelt Creations.

I had a couple of presents to wrap at the weekend and thought that these stamps would be perfect for making hand made wrapping paper. I used some brown parcel paper and then selectively inked up my stamps with Marvy brush pens. It took ages to do but I was quite pleased with the result. Once stamped, I sprayed the sheet with gold mica similar to cosmic shimmer....(I'm just using up what I've got in the draw). The shimmer just gave the paper a lift making it a bit more special. I had to iron it when it was dry just to straighten the paper out a bit.

The tags were stamped using the same pens, but this time I stamped off one image first, then sprayed the stamp with a fine mist of water before stamping onto semi absorbent cream card that I had already spritzed with gold mica, this gave the very slightly fuzzy image that I wanted.

I wrapped the presents with the paper then tied the tags of with raffia which I layered with the die cut leaf flourish.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

"Corrosive Challenges - Another Dimension"

"That Crafty Place - Anything goes"

"2 Sisters - Anything goes"

"One Stop Craft - Colour on Craft"

"Allsorts Challenge - It's your choice"

"Stempelsonne Challenge - A Flower for You"

"Fun with Shapes and more - Package"
