Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying the spring weather :) Today I am combining spring flowers and upcoming Mother's Day in this sweet embossed mini bag.
By using the Paper Flowers Kit - 90 pcs, one can easily created an embellished mini gift bag in no time. EVERYTHING is in the kit including several techniques in a booklet...class in a box :)
I am showcasing one of those techniques here using Texture Gems™ Ice as a resist. By dotting the petals and letting it dry, you created a resist design.
With the enclosed knife, slice a piece of Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® Metallic Grape and add water to create a paint. Brush over the flower and gentle wipe off the color on the resist design. Repeat the paint process in Metallic Melon Gelatos® with two other flower die cuts. For the smallest flower, I did another resist design and colored it with Metallic Grape.
While the flowers dried, emboss a Kraft colored mini bag for texture and interest in the background.
I love this shape! You can use it for a banner or sentiment which I did :) Wrote a quick "Hi Mom!" with Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Walnut Brown.
Then the fun part, assembling it all together!! Using foam dots, Dodz™ 3D and Dodz™ Medium (clear double-side adhesive dots), everything was layered into a beautiful dimensional flower.
A close up of the flower...I wanted a little more bling so I added a clear rhinestone in the middle to finish it off...what do you think?
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my post :) If you are interested in this kit and other, please click: Design Memory Craft® Gift Sets and Kits page.
