I am a wife and mother to 3 wonderful kids and a furry little pooch named Mooch. I enjoy stamping and scrapbooking in my spare time. I often find myself in the basement stamping and scrapbooking where all my goodies are stashed.
"It's at this time of year when I always think ' Oh it's ages until December 25th, no panic' and before I know it I am sitting surrounded by wrapping paper, ribbon and tags on the 24th promising myself I shall plan ahead next year and be more organised. So here I am, planning ahead with this week's theme of making unique wrapping, tags and gift packaging using stamps. Whether it's a simple single image stamped onto a plain sheet of paper finished off with jazzy trimmings, an intricate tag, a wonderful gift box or even stamping your own ribbon, give it a try and see what a difference it makes transforming (very cheaply!) the smallest most basic of gifts into a little work of art."
I didn't go with a holiday theme, but a general every day theme on my "wrapping". I created a gift card holder using a die cut and stamping the outside with Jo's Star 3051. I decided to color up Twinkie Boogies on Down 6103 and cut him out, putting the wings from Dragonfly 3050 behind him.
We give a lot of gift cards, not only during the holidays but also for birthdays so I need to get a good stash of these going...I'm behind schedule :-)
Hope you will join us over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge and show us how you "wrap it".
