Hello and Happy New Year to you! Here at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, for the new year we will be featuring one of our designers for her very own individual post on most Tuesdays and Thursdays. I am so very excited about that because our designers are so creative and talented! Today that designer is me, Jennifer Gregorsky. I jumped at the chance to share a special project I did using some of the fabulous new products from the 2017 Occasions Catalog! Here is a card and gift bag I created for a very good friend:
So if you are wondering how I got that gorgeous Bokeh effect on the background paper, I didn't. That is the paper! And I predict it is going to be a major hit with this catalog. I absolutely love the colors here, a Blushing Bride card base, the Falling In Love DSP, the Very Vanilla string of little dragonflies, the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper large dragonfly and touches of Sweet Sugarplum and Copper. The Blushing Bride Glittery dragonfly is actually layered over a vellum one with some copper metallic thread peeking out. I added some pearls and Sweet Sugarplum enamel shapes as well.
I used the Envelope Punch Board and the fabulous Envelope Paper in Sweet Sugarplum to create a special envelope to match my card:
I love the Layered Letters to stamp a name right on my custom-made envelop using the Sweet Sugarplum envelope paper. I also added a dragonfly with some sparkly wings courtesy of the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen.
I also decorated the gift bag I gave her as well:
I used some old and new ribbon; the old being the Sweet Sugarplum Glitter Ribbon and the new being the Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon. I just cut a little bit of the Falling In Love DSP, more of that amazing Bokeh effect, into a banner and added a cute little label:
Of course I had to use the Stitched Shapes framelits along with the Layering Circles framelits, they are just too perfect together! I added the beautiful Falling In Love Flower embellishment for a final touch.
So are you super excited about these new products? They will soon be available to buy! Thanks so much for stopping by today, head over to my page for some more pictures and a complete supply list.
