Perfectly Packaged Bags, Tags Boxes and more

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiment’s we have a package theme challenge.  I’ve needed to say thank you to our dear neighbors and I thought to create a thank you project for this challenge would be perfect.  Inspired by Mary Fish and her pizza box tutorial project I decided to CASE her project and make these 3″ x 3″ thank you cards perfect to put inside this pizza box.  Mary always has clean, simple and stunning projects.  Hop on over to her blog and take a look at her wonderful projects.

For my project I decided to use the Day of Gratitude stamp set and Cajun Craze ink and card stock.  I did not like this color when it first was introduced but now I absolutely love it for all my fall projects.  It’s perfect!

Day of Gratitude

Fall is in the air and I’ve been creating cards with the stamp set Day of Gratitude.  This is the stamp set I received at the Stampin’ Up Fort Worth regional.  The stamp set is featured in the holiday mini.  I especially like the medallion in the set so I created this week’s card for Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge with the medallion as the focal point.  The sketch is featured in the Success September issue.

Fall Medallion

I first stamped the medallion in Chocolate Chip then used sponge daubers to apply Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Daffodil Yellow.  I CASED this coloring technique from dhagberg2000 at SCS.  The Old Olive layer is embossed with the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  The other side layers are Chocolate Chip and Cajun Craze.  I stamped the sentiment on Very Vanilla with Cajun Craze and used hemp cording.  I then stamped the acorn with Chocolate Chip and cut it out and adhered with a mini glue dot.
