Stamped Card With Sparkly Embossed Bag

The lovely Blythe shares with us this pretty project that’s perfect for holiday gift giving or, you know, a wedding.














While the project focus is on the sparkly-embossed organza bag, I think the card is the real showstopper here. How gorgeous would this be adapted into an invitation? And the bag? An excellent way to present favors.

[Note: The numbers in parentheses refer to the item’s current catalog number in the current Stampin’ Up! Idea Book.)

  • Stamps: Medallion (115223) and Tiny Tags (118091) both by Stampin’ Up!
  • Card Stock: Very Vanilla (101650) by Stampin’ Up!
  • Ink: Old Olive Classic Ink (102277), Craft Stampin’ Spots – Brights Collection (119718) by Stampin’ Up!
  •  Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder (101930)
  • Heat Tool (100005), Powder Pals (102197)
  • Old Olive Satin Ribbon (117292)
  •  Jewelry Tag Punch (117190)
  • 1/16″ Circle Punch (101227)
  • Linen Thread (104199)


For The Bag:

  1. Cut a piece of card stock or thin cardboard slightly smaller than organza bag and insert it into the bag.  Lay the bag on a flat surface and smooth out any wrinkles.
  2. Ink the Medallion stamp well with Old Olive Craft Ink. Stamp on bag as desired.
  3. Sprinkle the stamped area generously with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Shake off excess powder into a container (you can re-use any unheated embossing powder).
  4. Using even back and forth motions with the heat tool, melt the embossing powder. Be careful here; you’ll want to heat only until the powder turns liquid. Overheating will pucker and melt the organza. (See below.)
  5. Remove card stock from bag. Insert your favor or gift.
Heating The Embossing Powder On The Bag


















For The Gift Note:

  1. Cut Very Vanilla card stock to 3″ x 6″, score at 3″ and fold in half to create card.
  2. Ink Medallion stamp with Old Olive Craft Ink and stamp image on card front.
  3. Sprinkle with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, shake off excess powder, and heat set using the Heat Tool.
  4. Tie Old Olive Satin Ribbon around card.
  5. Using Old Olive Classic Ink and the solid tag image from Tiny Tags, stamp off once onto scrap paper, and then stamp onto Very Vanilla card stock.
  6. Ink “merry” image with Old Olive Classic Ink and stamp over solid tag image. Punch out the image using the Jewelry Tag Punch.
  7. Punch a small hole in the Jewelry Tag using the Handheld Circle Punch (or use the Paper-Piercing Tool). Tie the Jewelry Tag to the Satin Ribbon using Linen Thread.
