When I saw this group of stamps I thought how fun it would be to random stamp an entire sheet and then cut a gift ensemble from it!
I used analogous color families like blues and greens, yellows and oranges, and purples and pinks to layer inks while keeping them from looking muddy.
To give things a bit of sparkle I added dots from our Silver Metallic Marker on all the tiny orange flowers and the centers of the purple and pink flowers before cutting with my Cricut.
Our thin Thistle Diagonal Striped Ribbon was perfect to tie up the gift card holder and add the tag to the bag. I did use a small velcro dot on the bag to keep it closed as well.
Here is the Explore Design Space file for this ensemble. It uses one 12x12 random stamped or patterned paper and one 8.5x11" sheet of white cardstock.
Here is the list of colors and stamping order I used:
Blue Flowers: Glacier, Juniper and Topiary
Purple Flower: Thistle and Gypsy
Pink Flower: Pixie and Thistle
Yellow Flower: Canary and Goldrush
Leaves: First and 2nd Generation Pear
Orange Flower: First and 2nd Generation Goldrush
