Hello everyone!! Yayyyy, it’s that time of the year again! 25 Days of Christmas Tags event!! I’m so excited to join in on this event. My good friend and former teammate Tracy is the amazing host and you can find her post about this event here.

Take a look at my tag:

Happy Holidays

Clean and simple is my style and creating these proves that. These tags are from my nieces. They love bling!

Here’s how I created these watercolor Christmas tags:

Gather your supplies:

  1. Happy Holidays Stamp Set
  2. Handmade Tags Die
  3. Our Family 3 x 4 Watercolor Journaling Cards
  4. Altenew Crisp Ink Permanent Black Ink
  5. Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine
  6. Ribbon and Charms

Use the die cutting machine and die cut three different size tags and style out of three different journaling cards.

Stamp three different sentiments on the tags.

Thread ribbon through each of them and and a charm using a small jump rink.

Happy Holiday

Super easy and a great way to use those journaling cards.

Let’s take a look:

Nicely done!

String of Lights Stamp Set

Let’s look at what I created:

I love the sentiments in String of Lights Stamp Set! They are funny and delightful! I love the play on words with the sentiment I used to create this super clean and simple Christmas card.

To create the tangled look, I stamped the first set of lights. Then I cut a mask and placed it on top of the image and stamped in the other direction.

String of Lights

I love how they turned out.

I used Derwent Inktense Pencils to color in the image.

STAMPtember Blog Party

Yayyy, the celebration has begun! Welcome to Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Blog Party!! Have you seen all of their new goodies? No, you are missing out! Check out the collection here.

I’m excited to join their block party this year. To see the entire list of party goes, stop on by Simon Says Stamp blog. The anticipation has been overwhelming. Are you ready to see what I created?

Let’s take a look:

Ornate Ornaments

I had the pleasure of playing with the new Simon Says Stamp Ornate Ornaments stamp set. This stamp set has five ornaments, six sentiments and a couple of playful fillers. Its perfect for Christmas cards, gift boxes and gift tags.

My favorite of the five ornaments is the elongated star. It reminded me of the star ornaments my mom use to hang on her tree. All of the same colors, with the center lighter then the rest.

Here’s how I created these tags:

Cut the Neenah Desert Storm cardstock to 3″, 2.5″ and 2″.

Use We R Memory Keepers Tag Punch Board to create the tags.

tag punch board

This punch makes it so easy to create tags in a snap. It took me 5 seconds to create these tags. No die cutting machine necessary.

Tag Punch Board

Once the tags are cut, they are now ready to be stamped on.

My Sweet Petunia Mini MISTI comes in handy for continuous stamping. Once the stamps are all in place, all you have to do is re-ink and stamp. Love it!

Mini MISTI

When all of the tags are stamped, its time to color the images.

Color each star with Prismacolor Premier Color Pencils. Choose two colors that blend well together. I used the following:

Pink: 995, 993

Orange: 118, 917

Blue: 906, 1040

Green: 912, 909

Ornate Ornaments

To finish the tags off, add a little bit of Clear Wink of Stella, for a glittery shine and the ribbon/string.

What do you think? Are you making gift tags this Christmas? I would love to hear.

Christmas – Where Creativity Meets C9

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Christmas!!

Take a look at my tag:

For this tag, I used Concord & 9th Ornamental Dies. I die cut three red pieces and one white piece.  I used the additional die pieces to emboss the front of one of the red pieces.

Once all of the pieces are cut, put the ornamental tag together using Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.

To finish the tag off, add some glitter to the front of the tag and add sweater ribbon.

Lets take a look inside.

I love how this tag turned out!!  Nice and simple!!

Hero Arts Shaker Tag – a2z Scrapbooking December 2016 Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a a2z Scrapbooking Challenge. The theme this month is Anything but a Card!!

Take a look at my tag:

Here is how I created this tag:

I gather all of my supplies needed to create a tag:  Hero Arts Joyful Tiding Tag Set, Hero Arts Raspberry Ink, Hero Arts Black Ink, Lucy Abrams Ivory Sequin, We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool, We R Memory Keepers Photo Sleeves,  and Tombow Mono Adhesive Plus, We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile and a ColorBox Art Dauber.

I die cut three tags so that I could stack them on top of each other.  Then I used the sponge dauber to add some color using the Hero Arts Raspberry Jam Ink.

happy-holiday-tag-supplies-a2z

Once the top tag was inked to my liking, I adhered the two additional tags with Tombow Mono Adhesive Plus.

happy-holiday-tag-stacking-a2z

happy-holiday-tag-3

Once all of the pieces were in place, I used the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment on the tag.

 

happy-holiday-tag-stamping-a2z

Now the tag is ready to become a shaker.

happy-holiday-tag-together-a2z

I gathered all of the supplies need to create the shaker portion of the tag.

You need a We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool, We R Memory Keepers Fuseable Photo Sheets.

happy-holiday-tag-fuse-a2z

 

Place the finished tag inside the plastic and line the die up over it.  Use Washi tape to hold it down.  Then you want to glide the fuse tool around the die, sealing it.

happy-holiday-tag-fusing-2-a2z

Once you add the sequin is added inside, seal the top of the tag the same way you did the body of the tag.

Punch a hole using a We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile and string a piece of string.

Nice and easy! Super cool to create!
