Tropical Chic Gift Bags

Good Morning & Happy Saturday!

Up bright & early this morning since my hubby has to work.
It's a beautiful morning...not too hot or humid out yet!

Last evening was my stamp get together with friends!
I always enjoy our stamping time and all the chit chatting we do!
If you remember, last month I started decorating small gift bags for them to take their cards home in.
This is my July Bags that I whipped up....take a look!

I always start out by making a tag and then just building on the tag.
I don't attach it to my bag with twine or ribbon. I attach it with 4 Dimensionals on the back so it does not fall off and it will not flop around on the bags. This really seems to work and the girls love having the decorated bag to carry their artwork home in!
For this bag I used a new bundle in the catalog called Tropical Chic.
At first it did not grab my attention but the more I saw samples of it the more I loved it.
I told you I am a sample girl.....alot of sets never grab my attention until I see things done with it. 
I know.....i'm always late to the party! LOL

Project Details:

Stamps: Tropical Chic, sentiment from Abstract Impressions
Ink: Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green, Blushing Bride
Cardstock: Granny Apple Green, Shaded Spruce, Whisper White, Tropical Escape DSP
Accessories: Tropical Thinlits, Scallop Tag Topper Punch, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Circle Layering Framelits, Granny Apple Green Ribbon, Granny Apple Green Glittered Enamel Dots, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

On the ferns, I inked my stamp in Granny Apple Green then took a sponge dauber & the Shaded Spruce ink pad and sponge daubed that ink onto the bottoms of each of the stamps. Once I pounced ink on the rubber, I huffed to re-moisten the stamp and stamped on the cardstock. That is what gives the ferns the 2 toned look! My flower is just stamped in Blushing Bride to match the color in the DSP.

My friends really like the bags, so as long as time allows I will try to make them before each get together! Hope you liked these as much as I enjoyed making them!

My thoughts today....

Almost looks like my little Gigi in that picture!

That's all for now!
Thanks for stopping by & enjoy your day!
