Christmas Gift Tags Day 5

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to Day 5 of my Christmas Gift Tag Week. If you missed the previous four days, make sure you pop over to the posts for Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4 to check them out! Now on to the last tag of the series. I made this one to coordinate with some of the other gift wrap I’m using to wrap the kids’ gifts this year. I wanted to coordinate the tag to the wrapping.

There are several different style tags in my series this week which all feature their own little, unique flair. I hope you enjoy all of the tags, and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss out on my video tutorials.

This is another fairly simple tag, though it does take a little longer to make due to the heat embossing. But I really love the raised images, especially the white on the black background. I colored in the ‘Tis the Season sentiment with a Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend. Because these markers are alcohol based, they stain the embossing, unlike water based markers which resist the embossing.

I used some of the images from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, and the sentiment from Tidings All Around to create this tag. I punched the tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and threaded some white Baker’s Twine through to attach it to my package.

On the back of the tag, I used my Snail Adhesive to glue a small square of Whisper White cardstock to write the To and From. Alternatively, if you had a white paint pen, a gel pen, or a chalk marker, you could skip that step and just write directly onto the tag.

I really love the way this tag looks on this package with the darker color scheme. The white really pops and makes the tag stand out. Are you loving the ‘dark side’ of this gift wrapping theme? 😉

A Happy Match

Hello Kre8tors and welcome back! Today we are getting FESTIVE with TWO amazing bundles, and I am so excited to share this project with you! I received a comment on my YouTube channel asking me to CASE the back of the Holiday Catalog. I hadn’t even really taken much notice to the projects on the back page until I read that comment. When I took the time to look at that photo, I realized how AMAZING it was! So thank you so much, Diana, for the suggestion!

This card used a LOT of TLC! I didn’t have any Designer Series Paper on hand, so I decided to ATTEMPT to make my own PLAID! Wow, that was tough. After one failed attempt, I decided to try a different method, and so this DIY DSP Plaid background paper was born! I go into a lot of detail in my YouTube video, link below. Be sure to check it out to see how this card came together!

All in all, using the materials I had on hand, I think this CASE’d card came out very well! What do you think? Are you ready to give this card a try with the materials that YOU have on hand? If you do, take a photo and upload it to Social Media, and TAG me! I’m on Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest as @MKre8tions. You can also post a photo to my Facebook page!

One of my favorite things about the Winter Woods Bundle is how unique the framelits are! You are able to create some beautiful dimension and depth with these framelits. Love adding a hint of Wink of Stella to the boughs as well! When pairing the Winter Woods Bundle with the Rooted in Nature Bundle, it does make a Happy Match indeed! These sets work beautifully together! I can’t wait to play more!

Measurements:

Garden Green Cardbase: 4-1/4″ x 11″, Scored @ 5-1/2″
Whisper White for DIY DSP Plaid: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Shimmer White: Approximately 4″ x 4″
Whisper White Scraps: Approximately 4″ x 5″
Cherry Cobbler Scraps: Approximately 3″ x 2″

Lovely As a Tree Classic Layered Card

Today I wanted to get back into a classic set from the Annual Catalog. Lovely As a Tree is one of Stampin’ Up!’s longest running and best selling stamp sets. This beautiful set features a variety of trees and small accent stamps, and can be used for just about any occasion!

I fussy cut the small pine cone and pine branch stamps to accent my layered sentiment, and used a glue dot to hold it together. Then tied some linen thread around the layered pieces for added interest.

To make the scene cohesive and look like one long stamp, I used my Stampin’ Write marker in Basic Gray to mimic the lines of the stamps and connect the hills under the trees. You can’t even tell it isn’t a connecting image!

For the little bird and the sentiment, I used the Sitting Here stamp set. I love using layers on my cards, and think that this double layer with the sentiment raised is a nice touch to add dimension to the card.

Measurements:

Old Olive Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Basic Gray Mat #1: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Very Vanilla Mat #2: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Basic Gray Sentiment Mat #1: 1″ x 3-3/4″
Old Olive Sentiment Mat #2: 3/4″ x 3-1/2″
Very Vanilla Sentiment Mat #3: 1/2″ x 3-1/4″
