I've just uploaded my video where I've shared some tips on getting the most from your Stamp-a-ma-jig at the same time as making a beautiful Thank You Card - see the last photograph.
The video is called: Thank You Card & Getting the Most From The Stamp-a-ma-jig a bit long winded but it says what I want to say! LOL!
There is also another great tip for using the Stamp-a-ma-jig in my video: Snowman Shaker Card
Yesterday's Holidays Fancy Foil Vellum project no. 2 was a disappointment - see the second to last photograph.
I made a Mini Treat Bag using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies.
The reason I wasn't happy with it was because you could see one of the seams through the front of the bag and there was no disguising it.
It wasn't a problem caused by any of the products, just the fact it was patterned vellum and therefore see-through.
I made another Mini Treat Bag but this time I used Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper.
To cut a window in the front of the Treat Bag, I used the largest size Christmas tree from the Perfect Pines Framelits Dies.
I lined the inside of the window with the green trees design from the Holidays Fancy Foil Vellum.
I put a piece of Whisper White Card Stock inside the bag so the vellum was shown at its best for the photographs.
I added a Very Vanilla Card Stock star punched from the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack.
I die cut the pot for the tree to stand in using the die in the Perfect Pines Framelits Dies.
Then I made a tag using Very Vanilla Card Stock and the oblong die with a banner cut on each end.
I cut one end off straight.
Using the same patterned Designer Series Paper, I die cut For You from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies and adhered to the tag using Tombow.
I punched a straight hole in the tag using the Curvy Corner Trio Punch and threaded some cotton Real Red Ribbon through and attached it to the bag.
What a difference!
No unpleasant visible seams but a delightful bag for popping a little treat in and giving to someone you care about!
That's about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
