More Convention Make & Takes

These are more Make & Takes from Convention. This little pouch would make a cute gift for a friend for almost any occassion. This is a sheet of 3 1/2" X 12" Pear Pizzazz cardstock, scored at 5 1/4" and 10 1/2". On the short end, cut from the fold on each side leaving a 1" section in the center. What we did to make sure the punched section lined up in the right spot for the piece that tucks in..... we punched a white piece using the word window punch and very lightly attached it to the short end that was already cut leaving the 1" section barely inside. Then we put heavy adhesive on the top part of the word window piece. we folded down the flap and the white piece stuck to the larger section of the cardstock. We then inserted the word window punch and punched "out" the white piece, leaving an exact spot for the tab.

Using versamark ink we stamped the flower image from "Just Believe" stamp set on the front of the pouch and then stamped the greeting "Just for You" in Early Espresso above the flowers. On the inside the pouch we attached a small cellophane bag inside using Sticky Tape. In the pocket of the cellophane bag, we inserted the little 1 1/2" X 3" cards. The little cards were made using a stamp from "Just Believe" and the circle was cut out with a 1 1/4" circle punch and adhered to the small card. the word friends was stamped onto the small circles in early Espresso Ink. A small flower from the stamp set of the "window" was colored with Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz inks and punched out with the Jewelry tag and attached to the ribbon with a small piece of linen thread. The ribbon bow was tied and attached to the flap with mini glue dots.
Pretty Cute!!

This next card is using the new "Just Believe" stamp set from the 2010 Idea Book & Catalog. On this one we stamped on Watercolor paper because after we colored our stamp with the Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy, Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive Stampin' Write markers, we spritzed the stamp with water and then stamped on the paper and set aside to dry. After it was dry, we stamped the greeting using Not Quite Navy classic ink. Then we used the color spritzer tool and spritzed on some Not Quite Navy ink all over the piece.
We tore the paper from the top down the side a ways, then attached to a piece of Bashful Blue cardstock and tore again leaving paper on the outside edge of the Not Quite Navy. A piece of Certainly Celery 5/8" satin ribbon was attached to the bottom and we attached a button with linen thread through the holes to the ribbon with mini glue dots. this hole piece was then attached to the 6" X 6" Not Quite Navy card base
