The Creative Inkers Occasions Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to The Creative Inkers Occasions Blog Hop for January 2015 

Whether you started with my post or you arrived here from the very talented Kathe Oldham, make sure you continue by clicking on the link in each blog and you will enjoy a fabulous round of 16 projects.

For my project I made a birthday card using gorgeous new goodies from the Occasions cattie.

Here's the inside postcard:

And, finally the ca-ute mini treat bag using the new thinlits die (by the same name):

Products used for this project:

Stamp: Sheltering Tree
Ink: Pistacio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush, Blushing Bride, Black Stazon
Card: Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Vellum card
Accessories: Saraha Sand Lace Trim, Linen Thread, Subtles Candy Dots 
Tools: Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die, 3.5cm Circle Punch, 4.4cm Scallop Circle Punch, 3.2mm Handheld Punch

Don't you love the new stamp set - Sheltering Tree?! There are 14 stamps in the set including images and 4 different messages. You can stamp a bicycle under the tree, flowers, a rake or the swing, which is what I've used. It's also photopolymer, so aligning the images is a doddle, no stamp-a-ma-jig required and perfect for so many occasions!! 

I hope you enjoyed looking at my card. Now you can now hop on over to Bev Poultney and check out her fabulous project. She always has something wonderful to share. Happy hopping and enjoy all the awesome projects and inspiration that you find along the way! Don't forget to leave a comment for each blog as I am sure they would all love to hear from you.

  1. What a neat idea to use a velum bag as the envelope. It gives it such a soft pretty look.

  2. I too love the idea of using vellum for the treat bag envelope! :)

  3. So soft and feminine. Lovely project Debbie

  4. This is gorgeous Debbie, love the Vellum for the Mini Treat Bag - very cute!

  5. Fabulous work Debbie! Ooh now you've got me thinking about what else I can make with vellum and that bag die... Lots of possibilities! Thanks for inspiring me!

  6. I love your card and treat bag Debbie, the bag is fabulous cut in the vellum especially using it to hold the card. TFS

  7. Oh this is just GORGEOUS Debbie! I love the vellum bag, and Sheltering Tree is one of my favourite stamp sets in the catalogue. Stunning!!

  8. Lovely projects Debbie. I too, love the vellum treat bag as an envelope, idea. Awesome:)

  9. LUV the sublety of these projects - simply stunning. The Lace trim is a perfect touch :)

  10. Stunning, especially how the card shows through the vellum. The card is beautiful.

  11. Love this stamp set - so versatile with all the accessories to choose from. What a great idea to cut the bag out of vellum - SU better have lots of vellum in stock :) TFS

  12. At first I could not figure out why you would tie that beautiful ribbon on the top of your card, then as I scrolled down and realized that the card was tucked in the new party bag, it made great sense....really wonderful projects!

  13. Lovely use of Vellum for the treat bag Deb, and your card is very feminine. Love it :-)
