Personalized Bone Folders in pretty Gold Striped Bags

 

It's been busy around here.. over the past few weeks, I decorated, stuffed and mailed 300+ gold striped bags with 600 die cut Christmas trees, 300 metallic doilies and 300 foil snowflakes for my Luv 2 Stamp Group, and filled them with a personalized bone folders as my Christmas gift to each of them!

I decided to work on the coffee table in the living room so I could enjoy the Christmas tree and all the trimmings while I worked.

I thought I had die cut enough trees, but ended up going back to the Big Shot many times to cut more trees!  600+ trees is a LOT!!  I used the tree in the Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh thinlit set and the Naturally Eclectic and Coffee Break packs of designer paper, mixing and matching the trees on each package.

 Debbie Adams of  Advanced Custom Embroidery & Graphics in NY engraved the Stampin' Up! bone folders for me.  She was terrific to work with and if you need any personalized gifts, I'd highly recommend her!

I layered a metallic doily and a foil snowflake, gold on silver, or silver on gold, for a little extra bling behind the stamped die cut circle.

The gold striped bags are so pretty and especially festive for the holidays!  Find them on page 195 in the annual catalog or here online.

I was celebrating each little step along the way.. like 300+ stamped, die cut circles...  :)

How to watercolor on Stampin' UP! Memories & More Petal Passion floral cards by Patty Bennett

 

I love these beautiful floral cards... the pack includes 72 double sided preprinted cards, and I grabbed my Stampin' Up! reinkers, a clear block and my Aqua Painters and just started coloring them in!!  How easy, and how pretty!

You can leave them black and white, or color them in with Stampin' Blends, markers, sponge daubers, watercolor pencils, Brusho, or watercolor them like I did here.

 

Stampin' UP! Memories & More Petal Passion floral cards watercolored by Patty Bennett

 

 As you can see, I used these cards to tuck into the Prize Patrol gifts I'm mailing to my Luv 2 Stamp Group team this month.  I stamped them with a stamp that my niece, Holly, made for me.  You can check out her Etsy store here.

How to Color the Petal Passion cards:

Simply drop a couple drops of each color you want to use onto a clear block, then pick up some color with your wet Aqua Painter and start coloring in!   DO NOT USE too much water, as these are not watercolor paper, but you can still very easily blend and shade with more than one color like I did here.
