Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenge

Happy Saturday...or I should say happy snow day. We got whopped with storm Nemo (or storm Charlotte as the CT stations call it) and have more than two feet of snow. A perfect day to stay in my pajamas and do some crafting.

On the 5th, Nichole Heady has been posting fun anniversary challenges on her blog for Papertrey Ink's 6th anniversary. I have been wanting to play along but either have not had the time or the stamps!!

Today's challenge was to go to pick an inspiration photo from Pinterest and create a wrap, tag or gift package inspired by the image. I chose the image below that was originally taken from House of Turquoise blog. I LOVE the rooms this women posts. They are stunning!!

Here is what I wound up making.

I actually dragged out my sewing machine and used some of the fat quarters I have been collecting over the past couple months to make a fabric gift bag. I then die cut some lemon tart paper using the tag sale #6 die and embossed it with the Herringbone Impression plate. I die cut and stamped a flower and leaves using the Rosie Posie stamp in Aqua Mist and Spring Moss ink. To make the flower pop, I used some Copic markers to shade in parts of it. I then stamped a sentiment from the 2012 Birthday Tags with Smokey Shadow ink.

Here is a close up of the tag:

I adored this little project so much that I sewed 4 other bags. I will post them another time because I did not have time to make any tags.

Thanks for stopping by!!
