Simon Says........Gift It!


Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Our theme this week is "Gift It!", and the DT are all playing with Clearly Besotted products.  I made a gift-card holding tag, and stamped some tissue paper as gift wrap.

supplies: white cardstock, Clearly Besotted Bird Bath stamps, Spectrum Noir Blues and Reds markers, DieNamics Stitched Tag, Impression Obsession Gingham stamp, Hero Arts Cornflower ink, blue gingham ribbon, adhesive foam squares

I tried putting an actual gift card on my tag, but the design just took away from my theme, so I substituted a rectangle of stamped gingham for now.  The birds are popped up with foam squares, and the gift card will be nestled between them.

Next I used another of the birds in this set and stamped all over a piece of blue tissue paper in dark blue and white.  When it was dry, I used it to wrap a book, and added my tag.  Books are often gifts we give to our Grands, and I know these little birds would please our munchkins.
