Core & Hampton Art


Hi! Happy Tuesday!

I hope you are  having fun with Hampton Art & Core this week! Today I have a gift bag set for you using Core'dinations David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system and Hampton Art stamps.

Did you know that the Step 2 layers fit perfectly on craft bags?!  How cool is that and I picked these up at  my local craft store and the A7 Large Dot embossed layer fit great. Don't forget to sand ;)
I used a bookmark tag from Step 3 for this cutie little owl. He is so sweet! You can never have too many owls in your stamping arsenal!

{remember to click on pics to make  them larger...a fun little slide show pops up}

and here is a close up of the bookmark/tag. I actually cut them on a smooth cardbase that I messed up and was going to throw away. So instead...I stamped on it and then cut the images out and raised the owl up with a pop up dot.


And you need a card, RIGHT? I add some Hampton Art stamps to the envelope and the inside of the card. 


I mixed and matched some Step 3 layers and our Chocolate Box cardstock. Thought it went with the pink and brown thing. I have boys so I rarely get to use pink!!!!


SO..here is your list...happy hopping!!!

Great project! The gift bag is very cute! I really like the card as well. The sanded frame around the brown background is a great look, It adds that extra finished touch. Did you accomplish this my scoring the back, then sanding? I would love to know the method as I would use it often.
