Muslin Gift Bags

I found these little muslin bags on clearance at Michael's Crafts each bag was pre-printed with "Give Thanks", I used several Stampin' Up stamp sets to embellish each bag.  I also die cut some leaves in various colors and added them to some "Bread Tags" cut at 2 1/2" found on the Walk in My Garden Cricut Cartridge.  Each stamped image was colored with Copic markers and gold Stickles.

Stamped with:  Autumn Harvest

Stamped with: Autumn Days 

Stamps with: Fall Favorites

Island Bay Cabana Christmas Wreath

I submitted this card over at Split Coast Stampers for thee challenges:

1.  Color Challenge CC452 using Stampin' Up Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, and Coastal Cabana
2.  Ways To Use It Challenge WT453 Lovely Wreaths
3.  Technique Lovers Challenge TLC456 Wreath Building

I started with a base by stamping the Close To My Heart Remarkable Wreath stamp onto Stampin' Up Whisper White, then built my wreath using two greens punched out with the Martha Stewart Pine Sprig punch.  A 3/4" circle punch was used to punch out all three blues to make little ornaments which were dipped into Stampin' Glitter.  A tiny piece of Smoky Slate was used as the top of each ornament.  A satin bow in Island Indigo was added to the top of the wreath and the sentiment is by CraftSmart.
