Stampin’ Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – Metallic Heat Embossed Bag using Eclectic Expressions
Oh I love it!
How pretty is this bag? I love to heat emboss metallics onto dark colours and these are just striking.
I decided to use the sparkly image from the Eclectic Expressions stamp set as my background and dropped the embossing powder over the top.
I did consider putting the embossing all over the bag, but felt that the showcase on the front, with the star shape (from the Blossom Builder Punch) was enough when a matching ribbon is attached.
But while I’ve gone dark with metallic, you could do pale colours with metallics too. It’s not just for the dark/shiny contrast, this bag is great for all sorts. I can see this as stylish party favours at a hen party or bridal shower. Perhaps in pastels at a baby shower?
The possibilities are endless!
I hope you’re planning a crafty day today, I know I am!
