Hello! As I mentioned yesterday, I had my New Catalog Launch Party on Saturday. In hopes of getting people to RSVP farther in advance than they usually do I offered a gift to the first 15 people who sent their RSVP. These are the little gifts that I gave them.
The gift is one of the new, decorated Glassine Gift Bags. Inside are a couple of Ghirardelli candies along with a sheet of the new Metallic Enamel Shapes. The bags with the gold doily on them have a sheet of the gold shapes and the bag with the silver doily has the silver shapes! 🙂
The little decoration on the front was pretty easy to make. I first stamped the dotted circle from the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set. Then I stamped the sentiment and the flower from the Blooms & Wishes stamp set. The ribbon is the fun, new Watermelon Wonder 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon.
I put a rhinestone in the center of the little flowers but I wasn’t real keen on the way the clear/silver rhinestone looked with the gold doily. So I’m thinking “How can I make this gold? Hmm…”. I looked at my stash of toys and first tried the gold pen Stampin’ Up! carried a few years back but that had more of a matte finish. I finally came across my gold Wink of Stella Glitter Pen and thought I’d give it a try. I wasn’t sure it would “stick” to the rhinestone but lucky me! It did! So there’s your trick….You can color the Stampin’ Up! rhinestones with your gold Wink of Stella Glitter Pen! Woo Hoo! It will probably work on the pearls too but I haven’t tried that one yet. Let me know if you try it. I’d love to know.
Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
