Simon Says: Wrap It Up!

It's Wednesday crafty friends and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Wrap It Up! The design team is featuring Tim Holtz products, it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!

I decided to use the Mini Halftones by Tim Holtz for my gift bag today. I love these images and the "shadow" effect they offer.  I started by die cutting my Mama Elephant gift bag from Neena 110lbs cardstock.  I then stamped out all of my elements using PostIt tape to mask off the sides with Simon Says Stamp Smoke ink for the shadows and both Versafine Onyx black (snowman) and Lucky Clover Oxide (trees)

I then stamped various snowflakes and embossed them with Simon Says Stamp silver embossing powder. Once that was done, I used Evergreen Bough Distress Ink and lightly blended it on the background.  I added some Cool Grey Copic shading to the bottom of my images.

I then added Nuvo drops (all colors listed and linked below) to my trees and the snowman.

I stamped the snowflake (Evergreen Bough Oxide and sentiment from the mini halftones on one of the Tim Holtz Wood Slices and added that with a Lawn Fawn stitched snowflake tag to the top of my bag.

To finish off I added some red tissue paper. I love these typed of bags, they are perfect for a small gift or gift card!
