Spellbinders February 19th Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the Spellbinders February 19th Blog Hop!  I'm so excited to be a guest this month and participate in the hop, using the Stephanie Low "Handmade" stamps and dies.  There's a giveaway today, too, so be sure to play along for the chance to win a $50 Spellbinders gift certificate.  (Details below!)


I hope you've joined me today by way of the wonderfully talented Hussena Calcuttawala, but if you haven't and you'd like to start the hop from the beginning, just head to the Spellbinders blog for the full lineup.



I have a couple small gifts that I made up featuring the Kitchen and Handcrafted sets.  I love the baking set with that gorgeous floral rolling pin and knew I had to break out some blender pens to do it justice.  On a large tag, I stamped it repeatedly in a yellowish-green and then colored it in the with peachy-pink inks.  To add some texture, I put a scrap of lace and ruffle trim along the lower part of the tag.




I stamped the cupcake next and then filled that in with similar colors.  I die cut it out and attached it to a glittery tag with foam dots for dimension.


For the gift wrap itself, I covered a 4" x 4" box with peach crepe paper, more lace, and some bronze shimmer twine.  I like a lot of different textures!  I slipped the rolling pin tag under the twine and the cupcake and glitter tag over it.


For my second package, I used the Handcrafted and Yarn sets, beginning with another large tag.  I stamped a repetitive pattern of the pretty floral included in the set.  I stamped it in a navy blue, then colored it in with a turquoise bloom and slightly purplish leaves.


Next, I stamped and die cut the scissor and paint brushes image, found in the Handcrafted set.  I also stamped and die cut "hand made for you" which is from the Yarn set.  I actually stacked 2 of these together for a thicker look, and then added it to the lower left corner of the stamped floral tag.


I aimed to create a layered tag, with the scissor/brush die cut as the top and the large tag on the bottom.  Sandwiched in between the two is a handful of trims--lace, sequins, and ribbon.


This time for the gift wrap, I used the floral stamp to create my own patterned paper, stamping repeatedly on bright white printer paper.  It's one of my favorite techniques when I have small packages to wrap.  I didn't use any extra trims here aside from what I included on the tag set itself.  I adhered it all to the package with a mini clothespin.



Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  I hope you enjoyed my take on these amazing sets from Stephanie Low and Spellbinders.  Be sure to check out all the other girls participating in the hop.  The awesome Emily Leiphart is up next so definitely don't miss her!  Here is the full lineup of participants, for your convenience:
