Bon Voyage Wrap

fullsizerender-94

What to do for that special person who is going on the adventure of a lifetime by moving to a whole new country?  Well you send them off with a set of markers and a coloring book wrapped in custom paper!  I embellished a section of Scotch polka dot postal wrap with stamps from the Hero Arts Bon Voyage set and Ranger Archival inks.  Over and around each polka dot, I applied Distress Gathered Twigs.  The packages were then tied together with a red ribbon from Hero Arts.

Merry & Bright and Distressed

First I stamped some Ranger Gloss Paper with the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Dots & Hearts background stamp in Ranger Archival Carnation Red. On top of that I took stamps from the Simon Says Stamp Merry and Bright kit (hearts, flowers, asterisks and snowflakes) and stamped them in other bright colored Ranger Archival Inks.  After I heat set that I applied some Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and buffed it out over the images.   I then stamped the gifts, Christmas tree and sentiment in black archival ink .  The polka dot paper in the kit is from Doodlebug and I cut that down and went around the edges with the Gathered Twigs. The kit was tied with a red ribbon so I cut some of that, applied Gathered Twigs to it, tied it and adhered it to the top of the tag made from Simon Says Stamp Green Apple cardstock.

Confetti Starry Night

I die cut the Hero Arts Confetti Stars into some Tim Holtz Heavy stock.  I Distressed the stock with Evergreen Bough, Iced Spruce, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey and Gathered Twigs.  Over the top of that, I put some white gel pen dots and Shimmer Spray. After heat setting, this piece was adhered to some Simon Says Stamp Surf Blue card stock.

Fall Flower Frenzy – Bling added

I went back to this piece today because I thought it needed a little something extra.  I added some white gel pen and some Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins and clear droplets. This feels much better now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fall Flower Frenzy!

img_8160

I embossed a Ranger heavy stock tag with a fun folder from Simon Says Stamp – Flower Frenzy! On top of that I used the following Distress Inks (Fired Brick, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge, Gathered Twigs).  In between the layers of ink, I sprayed some Ranger Perfect Pearls that I mixed with some Ranger Ink and put in a mini-mister. In person, you can really see that shimmer!
