Looking Spec-tacular

I love this single stamp – Spec-tacular (
132673 ) and had fun making this gift bag.  First I removed the handles from the bag with a hobby blade and then stamped the image all over the front.  I did use a Stamp a Ma Jig even though it’s a clear mount stamp – I’m just type A that way!  For the glasses, I drew them on Basic Black card stock and then spritz the daylights out of them using a mixture of shimmer paint and 70% rubbing alcohol.  I did put acetate in the lens – and, of course, rhinestones!

To make the tag, I printed out the sentiment (!) in My Digital Studio on Crumb Cake card stock and then made a tag shape and spritzed it with the spritzer tool and an Early Espresso Stampin Write Marker.  To keep the tag in place (so it doesn’t cover up my glasses) I added a jewelry tag punch to the back.  Let me show you –

Now the little tag holds the big tag in place!  I used a glue gun and a strip of Crumb Cake to add the handle back onto the bag. 

Stamp Set – Spec-tacular (Single)
card stock – Crumb Cake, Basic Black, acetate
Ink – Jet Black Stazon
Stampin Write Marker – Early Espresso
Etc -shimmer spray, MDS2, rhinestones, jewelry tag punch, spritzer tool and spritzer bottle

It would be cute with the glasses on the tag instead of the bag too.  Hhhhhmmm….might have to try that!  Hugs, Fran

  1. Fran, I love this! And to find out I’m not the only one using a Stamp-a-ma-jig with clear mount stamps set my heart at ease, LOL It looks perfect!

  2. Your comment made me laugh!  Okay – there are two of us out there with our trusty Stamp a Ma Jigs by our sides!  Hugs, Fran

  3. Is this ever cute, Fran!! Your glasses turned out so perfectly too!! (I use my Stamp-a-ma-gig with clear mount stamps too).

  4. Hi Rose Ann!  I guess there are more of us out there than I imagined using our Stamp a Ma Jigs – or we’re a merry band of three!
