We have a winner....Karen! (Again! :) )

This was the door prize at the Giftable 2 Stamp Camp last Sunday. Our winner was Karen F. She won the awesome Holiday Organizer I posted earlier at the last Giftable Stamp Camp. I told her I was going to take her to Wheeling...what do you think?

Her ensemble was a stamped gift bag, a matching topper that keeps the bag closed and a coordinating gift tag. She also won a sheet of those awesome adhesive tags stamped with the Tags and More gift tag stamps. Remember that post earlier???

You can see the close up of that tag below and the details of how I got that large scalloped circle using one of your cutting tools and a punch. Intrigued yet?

Also in the picture is a portfolio that houses a set of matching thank you cards that coordinate with the gift bag.

Here are the deets on the projects:
bag: I used the Snow Jumbo Wheel from the Holiday Mini in Night of Navy ink onto Brocade Blue card stock. The topper is Whisper White folded in half with a scalloped edge using the 3/16" Corner Rounder. (Can't get enough scallops!!!!!!) The Night of Navy card stock is also wheeled with the Snow Jumbo Wheel, but it is hard to see in the picture. That was matted with Whisper White and Brocade Blue. I next used my Paper Trimmer to slice a slit on the fold not cutting through the left and right sides so I could slip it over the handles of the gift bag. This will keep the handles together and cover your gift inside.

Here is a close up of the gift tag. I learned this past week if you cut a circle with your Colluzzle on an odd number (ex. the 1st, 3rd, 5th, etc... ring from the center) you can take the guard off of your corner rounder and punch around the circle creating a scalloped circle! Isn't that amazing?!???!??! we now can have more than one size scalloped punch! Unbelievable...I know! Well enough patting myself on the back, lol! So I did just that using the 5th ring on the Colluzzle Circle Template and added a tiny white dot with the White Gel Pen. I cut a circle in Whisper White on the fourth ring and stamped a snowflake from The Snowflake Spot in Brocade Blue off the edge. I used a stamp from the Tags and More from the Holiday Mini for the "To: From:" and took my Night of Navy Stampin' Write Marker to ink only those words and stamped that on the tag. Voila! Instant Gift tag!

Wow...I seem very long winded today! The card and the portfolio was done in the same colors. We will have to get into that another day.
