Introducing Enclosed...

Today is day 3 of the anniversary festivities at Papertrey Ink team, and we are showcasing the new Enclosed Series by Dawn McVey! The Enclosed dies make really nice sized tags for your gifts like I've done here. I cut the big flower background from gold cardstock and stitched on it in a circular motion with my sewing machine for the front of the tag. It's stamped with Enclosed: Flower stamps.


You might notice the striped vellum that I wrapped around the Clearly Creative Card Box? More info on that tomorrow! :) Yep. Uh huh! And then the inside of the tag is cut with Enclosed: Basic Folding Tag and stamped with the "to/from" from Enclosed: Flower.

Smile Gift Box and Tag:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Enclosed: Flower
INK: True Black
PAPER: gold cardstock
DIES: Enclosed: Flower
OTHER: machine stitching, Dark Chocolate Swiss Dot Satin Ribbon 5/8", Clearly Creative Card Box, seam binding by Zipperstop.

Next is a card made with the Enclosed: Flower stamps and dies. I stamped the flower with several different inks and then used a hole puncher to create holes to hand stitch with some coordinating floss. 

The leaves were trimmed from a paper I stamped yesterday with Background Basics: Medallions. And the Hello was stamped with Swoosh that I showed you yesterday.

The quilted look has always been a favorite of mine, so I machine stitched where the colors came together to get that look. On the inside, I stamped the rest of the sentiment...."Smile". The circle is cut from the Enclosed: Basic Folded Tag.

You Make Me Smile card:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Enclosed: Flower, Background Basics: Medallion, Swoosh
INK: True Black, Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold, New Leaf, Aqua Mist
PAPER: watercolor paper, Raspberry Fizz and White cardstock

You are the Queen of stitching, my dear! Would the Scribbles dies work for those of us who don't sew much? Great designs, Danielle. Love your watercolored background, too. What am I thinking? I love it all.
