Stampin Up! Hello! Annual Catalogue 2016 – 2017 Blog Hop Week 8_Make own Wrapping paper#01_2016(Mixed Drinks Stamp Set)

Welcome to the Hello! Annual Catalogue 2016-2017 Blog Hop! You’ll be hopping around some amazing Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators blogs, each with an inspirational project, featuring new catalogue products. Currently you’re visiting Jerim Dickins - Willowpiggy from Crewe, UK,  Hello there! You can continue hopping by using the previous and next buttons at the end of this post. Now, let’s scroll down to see what I’ve been making.

Yesterday was my husband's birthday, so I made a My own wrapping paper to wrap one of his gifts.
I used 12" x 12" 160gsm White Paper, so It's thin to be a wrapping paper and good enough for stamping. I think 120gsm should be just good enough too. My daughter Jessica who is 2 years old had a hard time ripping it.

Mixed Drinks Photopolymer Stamp Set - I think this set is just perfect "For Men" 

Make my own wrapping paper was one of biggest reason why I came into the "Craft world" and found "Stampin' Up!"

I wanted the design to be simple, but also to have some colour in it. By stamping the ink once onto some scrap paper before stamping onto the wrapping paper, I got a good effect for the beer. The colour wasn't too solid, and because I was only using economy white paper the ink didn't seem to blend into the paper like it would do with Whisper White cardstock. It seemed to give a good bubbly beer effect. It's hard to explain, but I have a video for it. If anybody wants to see the video I will be posting it tomorrow. :-D

Thank you for visiting today. The next stop is the talented Paula Dobson. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

  1. Thank you for your inspiration Jerim! I just bought this set and was wondering what I am going to make with it. I especially bought it for this beer pull. ;-) Great for guy cards.
    Thank you for showing!! Love your idea of making a background with this stamp.

    1. Thank you Caroline, definitely always will go to this set to make guy's, love to try wine images, but too busy to play Christmas stuff!

  2. What a great idea to make your own wrapping paper. It is so expensive to buy, but I love that you can personalize it for the recipient. I really must get this stamp set. So cool to be hopping with you this week Jerim xox

    1. Thank you Paula, totally agree with you, I've never spent money for wrapping paper when I grew up in my home country, so It's just hurtful to pay a wrapping paper.....!
