Tiny Treat Bag

Hi ladies!

I just loved watching Lisa's video yesterday. She made the cutest little bags out of Hero Hues envelopes. I wanted to give it a try and I had so much fun making this one! Hopefully I'll find some time to make more of them. I love their tiny size!



I used the Graph Background for the base of the card and the little pumpkins are from the So Thankful clear set. The leaf is made out of a coffee sleeve (I learned that one from Virginia!) I used a new EK large leaf punch and added some shading with Distress Inks.


One more thing. Some of you have seen a few cards of mine in the Flickr pool, that I created using Alcohol Inks. Well, I have one more to show you. It's a bit different because I didn't use any stamping at all on this one. After using the inks on the background, I just added some cute stickers. It was really strange not doing any stamping, but fun to try something different. I added some Rock Candy Stickles to the flourish to give it a little sparkle.



I hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by! :)

That is just darling! I think the big leaf really looks fabby! I have not seen the tut yet, will have to check it out! And I've definitely been loving your alcohol inks cards, so wonderful, they really give such a vibrant look, so different than the distress inks.
