Welcome to the 4th Bloghop of Global Stamping Friends. For this hop we decided on the theme "All Wrapped Up" - something that a lot of us are thinking about at this time of year with Christmas around the corner! Or if you're in our house a few birthdays as well!
It would be great if you could hop along through all the blogs to see some amazing projects - and hopefully find some inspiration for your own wrapping needs.
I am a bit obsessed with the Cookie Cutter bundle at the moment so decided to use it to upcycle some brown paper. Stampin' Up! UK used to deliver our packages full of brown paper, but unfortunately they have swapped to plastic pockets now so I had to find an alternative supplier - wasn't hard and a lot of you may know who I mean, yes Amazon still use brown paper! Sometimes you need to iron it to make it smoother but it's also not bad with a bit of texture for the more rustic look.
As you'll see I stamped one with the Reindeer stamp and then just had to have one a different colour for a bit of contrast. The matching tag was also really simple to make with using Designer Series Paper from the annual catalogue with a bit of silver thread -always need some bling!
I have to say I was quite pleased when my boys came home and said "Wow, that's pretty neat" - a real complement from them!
The second wrapping paper I made used the same set; but the Teddy Bear stamp. I love the bright colours of the Teddy (the photo doesn't do it justice) and I can see this being used for all sorts of different occasions.
The tag just has a Teddy peeking out and the To and From stamps are from the same set! See isn't it a great set! The tag uses the Scalloped Tag Topper punch; an extremely useful punch. It's finished off with a bit of the Pompom ribbon - what child wouldn't be delighted to see this under the tree on Christmas day or as part of their birthday presents?
I hope you've enjoyed my project.
