Hand Stamped DSP
Since I made this gift bag by stamping my own DSP, I have been looking for a new occasion to make one. Luckily, my nephew turned 21 last month, so I decided to make another one.
Manly gift bag
I tried to make the hand stamped DSP a bit more masculine and so I tried my Stampin’ Blends on Sahara Sand cardstock and I was pretty pleased with the result.
The bag needed to fit a box of tasty mini bars of Tony Chocolonely in rainbow colors, so I wanted to use some stamps I could color in rainbow order. I used some Dutch hand lettering stamps and stamped them randomly in Early Espresso on two pieces of Sahara Sand cardtock.
All the hand lettered sentiments are colored in the same rainbow colors. As you can see, I didn’t do much blending. I mostly just colored the letters.
I then made a similar gift bag as before, but made it taller and wider and less deep. I am really pleased with how this bag turned out.
I used a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock of 2” wide and about 7” long and punched it with the Tag Topper Punch. I used the new Hand-Lettered Prose dies to die-cut the letters for my nephew’s name out of Thick Whisper White cardstock. I used the same Stampin’ Blends to color the letters and adhered them to the tag. I cut down the tag to fit all the letters.
Matching Birthday Card
Of course, I needed to make a matching birthday card. I made a simple bridge card and used the same hand stamped DSP to decorate it. On the bridge part of the card I adhered the rainbow colored die-cut nummers ‘2’ and ‘1’.
On the back of the card, I made a small pouch to gift some money. Above the pouch I can write a message.
Colorful and manly gift set
It turned out to be a colorful birthday set and still manly enough. My nephew liked it, but that might mean that he just liked the chocolate and money 😜.
