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.

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.

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!


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

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 Gift Tag

I’m so excited to share my Christmas gift tags for 2013!  I love them and they were so easy to make.  Every gift I give out this year will have this gift tag attached to it.  My nieces and nephews are going to love these tags.  I can’t wait to see the look on their faces when they see this.  Enough talking take a look.
