whimsical designs blog hop!

happy saturday! i sure hope youve been having fun on our blog hop!
if youve just come from our talented and lovely sabrinas blog then youre headed in the right direction if not start back at the WD blog where youll get the full list.
at the end of my post ill send you off to your next adventure :) 

for our hop i made a couple of easy peasy gift card or tea bag holders using a mini glassine and brown bag.
 for this first  i tucked a gift card inside then folded down the front of the bag. then   i took a strip of some of my scrap stash inked it  and adhered it to the front of the bag  up where the fold is then i cut paper doily in half and inked it with distress ink and adhered that. tied it with some ribbon to keep the bag closed added my embellies, a chipboard scallop, cuttlebug aida cloth heart and button and the tag. the stamp i used is from the whimsical fun volume 1 set. isnt that just a make you smile font? it sure does me :) i used su ink in certainly celery ( my fave su color)
             for the glassine bag i added a tea bag inside (white tea with peach, yum :) )
i did the same directions with this one using the other half of paper doily, twine, adding a pretty crocheted flower, button and dragonfly embelli.
the stamp i used is from the set called "with love".
both of these sets plus the others  which all include lots more sentiments can be purchased at stephanies store do ya want a looksee from here first....
these are the awesome sets hardly have to apply any pressure and they come out perfectly every time. i tried them out with several different ink brands and chalkink with zero problems. im not a stamper buy nature so if i tell ya there good i promise they are :)

Geez, Shelly... how the hell did I miss you? I thought I commented on everyone's projects and started to have doubts so good thing I did a double check. You are so good at giving your projects that lovely vintage look. The inking and lacy pieces are so perfect. Love the pretty addition of the button pieces. Great use of the sentiments!
