Easy Christmas Tags with DSP and Merry Little Labels

Want to make some quick and easy tags? These were made using the Be Merry Designer Series Paper, the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, and the Merry Little Labels Bundle! Simply cut a 4 x 2 inch piece of DSP and punch the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Then, cut a 1 x 2 inch strip of a different, but coordinating DSP and adhere to the tag. Stamp your desired label from the Merry Little Labels set and punch out with the Everyday Label Punch (which comes as part of the bundle!) Adhere the punched label with some Dimensionals, add some ribbon or string to the top, and you’re good to go! For these, I used the 1/4 inch Cherry Cobbler Double Stitched Ribbon, but you could use anything you wish. I also rounded the edges with the reverse punch on the Envelope Punch Board. But these tags would still look great with non-rounded corners!

These tags were super easy to make, and can be changed to tags for any occasion just by changing the DSP and stamps you use!

It’s almost Fall! Time for Pumpkins!

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year! Especially in New England! We get such gorgeous colors on the trees, there’s tons of Fall Fairs and Festivals, and everything turns to pumpkins: pumpkin beer, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin bread, and so much more! This card features the new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. The paper provides the leafy background, as well as the pumpkins, which were cut and trimmed right from the paper! Finally, the sentiment comes from the Painted Harvest stamp set, which coordinates perfectly with the entire Painted Autumn Suite, available now from Stampin’ Up! Other products used on this card include Linen Thread and Touches of Nature Elements. Colors are Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach, Soft Sky, and Tangerine Tango.

Thoughts and Prayers Friendship Card

Thoughts and Prayers is one of the first stamp sets I bought when I became a demonstrator!  I love the simplicity of the tree and floral images, as well as the beautiful sentiments!  (The sentiment on this card is actually not from the Thoughts & Prayers set though. It’s from the So Many Shells set!) I have used Thoughts & Prayers for many, many occasions, including birthdays, weddings, Mother’s Day, friendship, thank yous, and of course, sympathy cards. This set comes in both clear mount and wood mount, and would make a great addition to your collection!

To make this card, I cut an extra top layer, then used a square from the Layering Squares Thinlits to make a “mask”. This mask was placed over the final top layer, so that the whole layer was covered except for the square that had been cut out. I then used a Stampin’ Sponge to sponge Crumb Cake ink all inside the square to make the background behind the tree. Once it was completely filled in, I removed the mask, stamped the tree and sentiment both in Soft Suede ink, and then added Clear Wink of Stella Glitter to the leaves of the tree!
