Harvest Hellos Gift Tag

For today, I’m taking a break from Christmas theme projects and sharing a Harvest Hellos Gift Tag.  For recent team gifts, members received a Bath & Body Works hand soap.  The apple in the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set along with the Apple Builder Punch coordinate perfectly with the Afternoon Apple Picking label.  Don’t you just love it when store bought items coordinate with your stamps and dies?  Both of the items can be purchased in the Harvest Hellos Bundle for a 10% savings.  For the colorful background leaves, the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper is cut with the Gathered Leaves Dies provides perfect Fall leaves.

Here’s a close-up of the gift tag:

Steps to create the Harvest Hellos Gift Tag:
  • First, create a tag base using a 3-1/2″ x 2″ piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock and the Delightful Tag Topper Punch or the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. 
  • From the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper. select the desired colors.  Then, cut one large leaf, two medium leaves and one small leaf from the designer series paper using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  Also, use the dies to cut a medium size, solid leaf from a scrap of Mossy Meadow cardstock. 
  • From the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set, stamp the apple using Early Espresso Classic Stampin’ Pad onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  Punch the apple shape using the Apple Builder Punch and punch a stem from a scrap of Early Espresso cardstock.  Attach the stem to the apple using a mini glue dot.
  • Notice the small leaves around the apple stem?  One small leaf was cut from an Old Olive Foil Sheet found in the Noble Peacock Foil Sheets.  After cutting the leaf with the Gathered Leaves Dies, 2 portions were cut to use around the apple stem.  Attach to the apple using mini glue dots.
  • To stamp the sentiment, use the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp set and Mossy Meadow Classic Stampin’ Pad to stamp onto a 1/2″ x 2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  After stamping, cut an inverse “v” to create the flag end.
  • Next, layer the leaf elements onto the Crushed Curry Tag base.  When you are satisfied with the placement, attach to the tag base using Snail adhesive.  Add sentiment to apple.  Then, add the apple atop the leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • To complete the tag, attach a Linen Thread bow.  For attaching to the gift, use Braided Linen Trim.
Hope you enjoyed this gift tag project.  Tip:  When making tags, it’s the perfect time to use your scrap papers.

Brightly Gleaming Merry Christmas

Have you noticed that I am now in full on Christmas mode?!  The past couple of weeks, I have been enjoying creating a variety of Christmas themed cards and projects.  Don’t worry though, I still have some Fall theme projects to share with you before the full force of Christmas arrives after Thanksgiving.  Today’s post, Brightly Gleaming Merry Christmas, is another make ‘n take card from Stamping Bingo.  The card elements include the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Christmas Gleaming Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog.  The elements from the Brightly Gleaming Suite are elegant and gorgeous.  It is easy to create simple but beautiful projects with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper and accompanying embellishments.  That’s the case with the Brightly Gleaming Merry Christmas Card.

A Snowman Merry Christmas

Happy Monday.  Hope your week is off to a good beginning.  Today I’m sharing the make ‘n take, A Snowman Merry Christmas, from the recent Stamping Bingo.  The Snowman Season Bundle along with the coordinating Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper pair beautifully to create the card.  The Snowman Season Bundle contains the Snowman Season Stamp Set and the coordinating Snowman Builder Punch.  Do you notice the sparkle of the snowman on the card?  It’s actually cut from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I just love it when designer series paper contains images that coordinate with a punch or die.  

Let It Snow Suite

Steps for recreating the Snowman Merry Christmas card:
  • Start with a standard card base of Coastal Cabana cardstock. 
  • Cut a 5-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ piece of the striped paper from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper. 
  • With the snowflake stamp from the Snowman Season Stamp Set, randomly stamp snowflakes on the Designer Series Paper using Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Pad.  Then, layer onto a 5-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Real Red cardstock. 
  • Next, wrap a piece of Real Red 3/8″ Cotton Ribbon around lower portion of card and tie a knot. 
  • Attach to the Coastal Cabana card base with adhesive. 
  • With the Snowman Builder Punch, cut the glitter snowman from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Notice also that one of the Designer Series Papers has the hat that matches with the punch.  Also, punch the hat.  Use a scrap of Basic Black cardstock to cut the snowman arms.  Assemble the snowman using glue dots and attach to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp the Merry Christmas sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut the sentiment and the Coastal Cabana scalloped oval using the Layering Ovals Dies.  Adhere the sentiment to the scalloped oval and attach to the card front over the Real Red ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

See how easy it is to make a card with coordinating stamps, punches and paper!  Hope you will give it a try.  The Snowman Season Bundle and coordinating Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper is great for Christmas.  But don’t stop using it at Christmas!  It’s also great for Winter Themed cards and crafts.
