Halloween Treat Gift Jar

Here’s a quick and easy gift idea for someone special!  Simply fill a pint sized mason jar with Hershey Kisses (these are the caramel filled ones – YUM!), make a cute tag, and attach to the jar with pretty ribbon!  This tag was made using the new Spooky Night Designer Series Paper. I cut a two inch strip and punched the tag top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I then stamped the Jack O’ Lantern image with a stamp from the Seasonal Chums stamp set using Basic Black Archival Ink. Once dry, I watercolored the image using an Aquapainter and Classic Stampin’ Pads (please see below for the colors I used!) Once that was dry, I punched it using the 2 Inch Circle Punch and layered it on the tag over a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, which I punched using the Everyday Label Punch. The sentiment was also stamped in Basic Black and punched with the Classic Label Punch. This gift can also be made for any other occasion simply by switching the stamps, paper, sentiments, and of course, the CANDY! 🙂

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.
