Sunday again - how's the weather with you?

Wotcher peeps,

Sounds like a Crowded House song that, doesn't it? (unfamiliar? see it here) - Surprisingly enough (for a closet headbanger) I do like a bit of Crowded House (also Split Enz and the Finn brothers in their solo projects) - weird? I don't think so!, but what do I know?

More wrapping paper to share with you - this time a slightly more feminine take ..

Materials used:
  • IKEA brown paper wrap
  • Green organza ribbon
  • Teal dye ink
  • Imagine that sentiment
  • Chocolate Baroque floral image
  • Kraft card die cut using a Go Kreate tag die - making two tags
  • Penny Black floral image (smaller scale, to co-ordinate with the C.B. image, for tag)
  • Mostly Animals "Happy Birthday" sentiment stamped using Versafine onyx black on to both tags

I have to say that I am LOVING this IKEA paper for all occasion wrap, can't really wait for a "GUY" occasion to see what I can rustle up .....

A new challenge for the New Year has been launched over on the Pan Pastel blog - it is: "ANYTHING GOES" and they're encouraging people to try something other than cards ....... so, I'm going to enter my wrapping paper for this challenge.

Happy Sunday

Fab paper Kathy- I love wrapping my presents in brown paper and then just adding coloured ribbon. Should try some stamping on it too, to add something extra.
I wonder what you could do for male paper? Perhaps those clock faces in black/dark brown ink?
Thanks for the comments on my blog and best wishes.
Newbury artstamps in July sounds like a date! Lets check in nearer the time just in case I am in thesis writing over load. Keep in touch x

I'm a frustrated wrapper at the moment! I looked for the B. W. paper in our Irish equiv. of Smiths on Saturday, and not a roll in sight! Sigh.

Fabby wrapping paper kathy and even more glorious IRL as I discovered yesterday ! It was lovely to catch up with you over a cuppa yesterday afternoon. Next time I'm in the vicinity of IKEAL (!) I'll defo have to pick me up a couple of rolls of that brown wrap.
