#Party Time!

Hi All! Welcome to the Rose Blossom Blog Hop celebrating #30yearsofhappy! If you've hopped over from Created By Barbara, you're in the right place. Did Barbara offer up some amazing inspiration or what???  If you're just joining in the hop, you can find a list of participant blogs at the end of this post.

Now on with the projects!

This month I needed packaging for 4 gift cards--3 for girls and 1 for a guy. I decided to go with a little matchbox that's big enough for a gift card and some candy. (I also made some matching  gift bags with enclosure cards.)

Let's take a look:

For the guy gift set, I used the mustache from #30yearsofhappy to make my own patterned paper, stamping it in Black Exclusive Ink on White Daisy cardstock. (He's having a "Mustache Party," so it's perfect!) The box, bag, and card are made from Black and White Daisy cardstocks. I decided to accent the box and card with other stamps from the same stamp set in Glacier and Goldrush Exclusive Inks. I also added a few black enamel stars--white stars would work too.

Here's some close-ups of the box and 3x3 card:

And here's a look at the bag:

Now let's take a look at the girls' set:

For the girls' boxes, cards, and bags, I used Smoothie cardstock and Chalk It Up paper. I added a little Chalk It Up Picture My Life card to the bottom of the box for some fun reinforcement. The sentiments are in Lagoon and Black Exclusive Inks. Let's take a look:

Here some close-ups and a look at the box when it is opened:

And the bag:

I hope you enjoyed these little gifties. Now hop on over and see what inspiration the oh-so-talented Shelly Nemitz has in store for you. If you want to start at the beginning of the hop (or if you've gotten a little lost), here's a list of the blog participants:

  1. Oh my golly Kim, these are great! So creative! It gives me ideas!!! :)

  2. Over-the-top creative!! I just LOVE what you've done, and I am so in awe of you! You have an eye for mixing colors. Great work!!

  3. Wow, you are so creative! Love how you used the stamp to create patterned paper and embellishment clusters. How fun that the gift wrap fits the mustache theme!

  4. TOTALLY TALENTED is my words. This is just amazing!! Beautiful work Kim!

  5. Wow! Great job Kim I really like the guy pack.

  6. These projects are way cool, but what I'm really impressed with is how straight your background stamping was with the mustache stamp set - I don't think I could do it that perfectly! :)

  7. This is very inspiring, Kim! You really knocked it out of the park on this one! I agree with Morgan and that straight stamped line with the mustache stamp!

  8. I was about to say everything everyone else has said here ... especially that thing about the straight stamping. You're like a machine!! It's so perfect. I just love those little boxes for gift cards. It's fun to delivery something other than a card sometimes. Great work!!

    1. LOL!!! Not a machine I promise! The key for me is small paper and starting with the images slightly off the page. After that, I just eyeball it and try not to look at it too closely when I'm done. 😉

  9. Jaw dropping cute!! Definitely a beautiful inspiration !! Love to view your work...thanks for sharing 😊

  10. Seriously, seriously awesome gift sets, Kim! What lucky birthday recipients!

  11. What a darling idea, Kim! Love them!

  12. Krafty-Krazy-Kreative-Kim! LOVE these projects and the use of the little stamps. My fav = the star, butterfly, flourish cluster on the CIU giftee. Alos loved scrolling through your recent posts and being inspired. Wishing you a Blessed Autumn!
