Create Your Own Quick and Easy Stenciled Gift Bag

 Today I am excited to share this quick and easy gift bag I created that would be perfect for any holiday gift!  This project was so fun to create and would be easy to create several for your gifting needs.


 To recreate this gift bag you will need the following:


Blank Page Muse Supplies 

Penguins on Ice Winter Holiday Rubber Stamp Sheet

The Crafter's Workshop 6005 Slimline Layered Christmas Tree Truck Stencil


Other Supplies: White Gift Bag,  distress Inks, archival inks, low tack painters tape


Start by securing your gift bag to your work surface with low tack painter's tape.  Notice that your The Crafter's Workshop 6005 Slimline Layered Christmas Tree Truck Stencil has 3 different layers on your stencil.  One for each color of ink you will be using. 


Add black or brown ink over the bottom layer of your stencil. 

Carefully lift stencil to reveal your first layer of your truck.  Carefully clean both sides of your stencil before you start the next layer. 
Using the alignment marks, layer the section portion of the stencil over your bottom layer. 

Add your ink to color your truck.  This is perfect because you can customize your truck colors. 


Look how pretty the truck looks!  

After cleaning your stencil to prevent accidental ink transfer, layer the top layer of your stencil over image.

Add green distress inks to color your tree.


Look how pretty the finished image is!  

Using your greeting from Penguins on Ice Winter Holiday Rubber Stamp Sheet stamp your holiday greeting onto your bag! 

Carefully remove your tape and your bag is ready to be filled with your gift!

Happy Birthday "NEW" Dad!

 Hi Stamping Fans!

Today I am sharing a "personalized card" I made for my daughter to give her partner as a "New Dad" for his birthday!
I've used stamps and a stencil from the Blank Page Muse & I Brake For Stamps Stores!


The Sentiment and Alphabet Stamps available in store are just perfect for adding to a personal card.
I added "Happy Birthday" and "DAD" letters to a  card base along with a photo printed on glossy paper along with a few other embellishments.


I used "handprint" stickers but you could also use the handprint stamp available in store - link below!
You can have a lot of fun making personalized cards - you could even use pics of your pets!


And don't forget to stencil the envelope to have a matching "set"!

Cozy Kitten

 Hello from Design Team member, Heidi.

I adore cats.  And this cat stamp is sooooo sweet!  When I was looking at it, I thought how cozy the kitten looks, and then I decided that the blanket needed to look cozy too.  So I employed one of my favorite techniques, paper piecing!




I had just the right patterned paper that I had hoarded kept for just the right project. 

I first stamped the cat on white cardstock and colored with Tom-bow markers.  This made it easy to do the tabby shading as I could just go over those a second time with my brown marker to make it just the right amount darker.  (Typically I don’t color a lot with water based markers but in this instance, it works very well.)

Then I layered over the cozy blanket and added my sentiment.  A very easy card!

The stamps I used can be found in the I Brake for Stamps store.

The cat is available in a set called MS110 Full Plate and also as a single stamp, if you prefer.

The sentiment is part of this set called Baubles, Doily and Words.



Thanks for visiting today!
