Eastern blooms Thanks

I have really liked the new trend of decorating the insides of the cards.  All the cool blogging girls are doing it….( you know, the ones I stalk in my google reader!)    Not sure how “new” it really is, but I love the look.  this card was one of my 1st attempts to add some detail to the inside of the card.  

This card  is white embossed on kraft paper.  I colored the flowers with a real red marker.  The embellished flower is embossed in white on red card stock.

This was part of my big shot club projects.

All supplies are Stampin’ Up!

Eastern Blooms

Its been a busy weekend to say the very least. I can’t tell you exactly what we did but the days just zipped by!

Nothing brand new to share- But we made this scrap page a few weeks back at at workshop. It utilizes the the new Secret Garden rub-ons. A scrapper I am not, so I cased this from the Art from the Heart CD. My son is now 8 so this brings back a few memories.

Stamps: Eastern Blooms
Paper: Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, whisper white
Ink: Pacific Point
Accessories: Hidden Garden Rub-ons, Square punch, Crystal effects (dew drops on flower center), 1/2″ circle punch, brads, white gel pen

Eastern Blooms treat bag

I LOVE THIS!  Its a Lunch bag, yes the cheap ones from the grocery store, with the top note window cut through it.  I added acetate to create the window.  Tell me- won’t these be awesome for the holidays?????  Ummmm- YES!

So I had no “real treats” to put in the bag last night so I went with dog treats. its a disconnect from the Eastern Blooms- imagine really fattening cookies in there.    The back part of the lunch bag gets crumpled when cranking it through the Big Shot, so the bag lost some of its “stiffness”.  I am sure that’s partly due to the fact that these are very inexpensive lunch bags.  

I stuck the XL Top Note die in the middle of the bag, lined it up and centered it on the die as best I could and then ran it through the Big Shot.  Adhered acetate to create the window.  The bag is stamped in Eastern Blooms, with red craft ink.  The centers of the flowers were doodled with a Stampin’ Up white gel pen.  

I take no credit for this idea.  Its was 100% cased from HERE

I am now forming a 2nd Big Shot club.  Have my projects inspired you?  The Big Shot Club details are HERE.  Email me if yo want to join.  Lots of freebies and hostess benefits too!
