It’s a wrap shopping bag

 Continuing with the It’s a Wrap stamp set #123592 from the Stampin Up IBC, I stamped and embossed 3 of the images to get different textures for the shopping bags. I cut them out and adhered 1/8 ” black taffeta ribbon #119261 to them to form the handles.  I punched coordinating hot pink tissue using the postage stamp punch #122344 and added to the shopping bags.  One of the bags has a heart punched from the small heart punch #117193.

THe card base is pretty in pink cardstock embossed with the heart texture plate from the adorning accents texture folders #125601 from the new Stampin Up occasions mini catalog.  I then added a bow using the black 1 1/4 ” striped ribbon and layered the Happiest Birthday wishes from Hostess stamp set #122617 to create a coordinating accent.

The best part of this card you cannot see- it is the inside sentiment and my inspiration for this card- it says… the world got a present the day you were born.  So I created a card with presents to use this stamp set.  This card took a lot of time because of all the detail but I like how it turned out and used it as my second swap for the regional Stampin Up convention.

Its a Wrap Candle

 Todays card is absoultely a simple and cute birthday card I made using the It’s a wrap stampset #123592 from the Stampin Up IBC.  I stamped the birthday image 3 times in 3 different bright colors and cut them out to make the candles.  I punched the flames from daffodil cardstock using the wing from the bird builder punch #117191, inked the edges and and added a black wick with a black extra fine sharpie.  Added ribbon and a button to the whisper white cardstock textured with the stripes embossing folder #123128.  I loved this card so much and it was easy to create so I used it for one of my swaps at the Stampin Up Regional seminar today in Columbus Ohio.

If I buy a stamp set I like to make sure I can use it at least 3 different ways.  The It’s a wrap stamp set #123592 from the Stampin Up IBC  is one that I definately had to have because it is intended to be used to make party favors which are absolutely adorable but I have made 4 cards from this set as well. So will see the results over the next 4days.  Today’s card is simple and cute because I used a real band aid on the inside of the card to add a little extra texture.  Stay tuned for another card using this stamp set
