Today is the third Monday of the month – time for another Stamp Review Crew blog hop. This week’s stamp set is Chalk Talk. The set has a matching framelit set, which I used today for my projects. These stamps are perfect for using on gifts, so I used a bag from the Tag A Bag gift set for my first project. I love the Tag a Bag set, from the chevron-striped bags to the mini clothes pins and the coordinating baker’s twine, this kit has everything you need to make adorable gift bags. I also used one of the tea lace paper doilies and Calypso Coral chevron ribbon to create this cute little gift bag:
Like the “feathers”? These were part of a Leadership make and take that I never got around to finishing, so I thought it would be fun to put them on my bag. They are basically an oval shape folded in half with slits cut along the edges. I stamped the tag using Whisper White craft ink on Calypso Coral paper and embossed with white embossing powder before cutting it out with the framelit.
My second project is a box from the Tag a Box kit. This could hold some home-made candies or stamped tea candles. In addition to the stamp from the Chalk Talk set, I used the small, round “Made with Love” stamp from the Love You More stamp set on the Bermuda Bay box top. I stamped the Chalk Talk stamp twice on Calypso Coral and used a circle punch to cut out the middle of the top piece. Then I glued a piece of acetate behind the top piece to make a shaker element for my box. Stampin’ Up sells shaker frames, which made putting this together very easy. Finally, I covered the outside sleeve with a piece of chevron-striped paper from the Brights Designer Series paper pack and Whisper White organza ribbon before topping it with my shaker element.
