Emboss, Decorate and Gift!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share how fun and easy it is to add texture to our Ombre Gift Bags. They come in the 5 New In-Colors and each one is embossed with a different folder and decorated differently. Let me say that I was inspired by my fellow demonstrator Jan Farring who shared her embossed bags with all of us.

Please join me, sit back, relax and watch the video and then I’ll share each of the bags including the Soft Succulent which is not seen in the video!

Alright … the cover gives away my surprise! I embossed the Soft Succulent bag with the “Painted Texture 3D” Embossing Folder, it’s so versatile and can be used with so many different styles. I wanted to showcase the new Pansy Petals Designer Series paper as well …

The greeting comes from the Pansy Patch bundle and is stamped in Soft Succulent to coordinate with the bag (and the designer paper). I then punched it out using the Elegant Tag Punch and adorned it with the Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon. I completed this bag by adding the Silver Epoxy Essentials.

The Fresh Freesia bag is the first I demonstrated in the video and uses the Magnolia 3D embossing folder … It’s simple but pretty!

I used the folder “side-ways” for this one and decorated it with the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack, both the gold elements and the adhesive backed sequins come in the pack!! The gold piece you see here is actually the outer part of the piece I use on my Polished Pink bag …

My Polished Pink bag is embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and embellished with the our stunning Shimmer Vellum punched from the Medium Daisy Punch which I highlighted with the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack!

If you do not like the space on the bottom … you can emboss from the bottom and then your un-textured area will be on the top, that is how Jan Farring did her bags… this means you will have texture on both sides, since I came in from the top, mine is only textured on the front.

My Pale Papaya card is textured on both sides because we embossed side-ways to give it a totally different look …

I used the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder to texture this back … I really love it embossed sideways, it really gives definition to that area. I highlighted it even more by adding an oval from the Shimmer Vellum and another pretty daisy!! I added the Clear Epoxy Dots from the Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials to finish off my Gift bag.

I thought I’d have a little fun with the Evening Evergreen Gift Bag …

so I made it into a Christmas Gift Bag!! I used the Tidings of Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Paper and tied it up nicely with the Evening Evergreen Chevron Weave Ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed watching how easy it is to emboss these beautiful Gift Bags to give them some texture and then add a few embellishment (or more if you wish) to get them ready to “Gift”!

Thank you for joining me and checking out my video today …

I hope your day is a good one!
