I started with a gift bag, which led onto tags and a card......
My inspiration came from Stamplorations/Cutplorations photo..
I focused in on the red paste icing, the candles, celebration
and the black and white lace effect on the cup cake holders.
The red flowers have been stenciled with coloured embossing paste,
using two different sizes of the flower stencil.
The sentiments and candles have been die cut and layered.
The black and white lace strip at the bottom has been stamped and heat embossed.
I have used quite a few gold sequins to cover up my extra blobs of red paste!
I then wanted to make a tag for the bag....
I wanted to play with the different effects of the paste, layouts etc.
My inspiration to play with this technique came from The CAS-Mixup Challenge
which is embossing pastes and gels...
The tags have been die cut and I made a small black frame as well.
I enjoyed playing with the translucent paste
and the opaque ones to see the difference.
I now have a couple of spare tags to put on the actual presents.
As I wanted to enter The CAS-Mixup Challenge
I made a CAS card to go with the set.
The tag on the card is smaller than the tag on the bag.
I masked the white lace effect, stamped and heat embossed.
I tried hard to keep it CAS but couldn't help myself and
popped through gloss black embossing paste on the background.
The completed set ...
That's all I have to do now is find a present that fits the bag!!!
It took me awhile but I enjoyed it and had fun x
Thank you so much for finding the time to stop by.
I really do appreciate it...Thank You x
