Merry Little Labels: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Happy Mid-November! We are smack-dab in the middle of the crafty Christmas season, and the Artisan Design Team is playing with a great set for tags and some fun paper: Merry Little Labels stamp set and Merry Little Christmas designer series paper!

For those who are new to the Artisan Design Team, here is a little background. We are a group of 20 Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the globe, handpicked by Stampin' Up! to bring you inspiration and projects with the latest and greatest supplies
If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from Sylwia Schreck's blog. And she has done some amazing things!

I am doing a craft fair in a few days, and I have been cranking out all kinds of papercrafting Christmas gift-giving items. (Actually, the craft fair will have already happened when this post goes live... and these sold very well! I made about 30, went home with less than half that.) And for some reason, I am loving the idea of wine bottle tags lately! I have been wishing and hoping for a die for this from Stampin' Up! But until then, I figured out how to create them with supplies we already have.

Start by cutting a strip of cardstock to fit the diameter of the circle die you will be using to round the top. This one is 2-3/8"x7-3/4". Then do some partial die-cutting. You are only going to round one end of this strip with the die, so the top cutting plate needs to only cover the part you want to cut.

After you have rounded the top of the strip, use a smaller circle die to cut a hole. Line it up so that there is an even amount of cardstock left around the hole. You can secure the circle die with a piece of Washi tape to be sure it does not shift.

To create the dovetail end, use the largest simple heart die from Sweet & Sassy framelits. I center the point on the cardstock, and make sure that the bottom points of the strip are just visible inside the die.

Here it is with all of the die cutting done. Then you need to add a score line below the hole. For this size, I have been scoring it at 2-3/8" from the top.

And now, let the embellishing begin!

The base of this tag is Basic Black, and there is a layer of Merry Little Christmas DSP on top. Mini Sequin Trim in black adds some glamour, and the sentiment is kept simple, and since we were using the Layering Circles framelits to make the tag, I decided to stick with those to cut it out. There is a Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper snowflake cut using the Seasonal Layers framelits. That snowflake is perfect with this DSP!

Same concept with this one, except I used vellum for the snowflake, die cut the sentiment with the Stitched Shapes framelits, and added an accent strip of Basic Black cardstock embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.

And here we have the Everyday Label punch, with Silver heat embossing and Silver Glimmer paper. I snuck in a little machine stitching at the top of the DSP as I thought it needed a little more detail. The Glimmer layer is popped up on dimensionals.

That is all for me. I hope you found some inspiration here, and that I will see lots of Wine Bottle Tags popping up soon 😀

Presenting the Gifts Blog Hop: Seasonal Chums

My Inky Friends and I are back to show you some awesome gift packaging ideas! And while you are reading this, I am at OnStage in Salt Lake City, but I won't be seeing many of these friends. I will be making new ones though, for sure!

If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from Rhonda Griffin's blog. Boy-howdy! She sure made a lot of fun things, right?!


I have a little confession to make. The projects for this hop were just pulled out of the leftover stock I had from a recent craft fair... I had some other cute stuff too, but there were some retired things on them. 😁 A woman has to multi task where she can! Last week was really busy. I worked a full work week, had a craft fair, one of my son's got married in my house, and we had an out of town funeral for a close family member! I don't recommend booking yourself quite this tightly. But we all made it through, with grace!

So, the projects! This little cutie is actually going to be a swap also. I may or may not have gone a little nuts making these before the craft show, sold half my stock, and still have 25 or so left! 😅

I colored this jolly snowman from Seasonal Chums with the new Blendas, and covered him in Clear Wink of Stella. And could't catch the shimmer with my camera in the 5 minutes allotted to photography before I flew out to Salt Lake City Wednesday morning.

There is a little inclusion card inside the purse, which I stamped with image and sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments. A gift card fits in this purse right along with the lip balm and the little card. How awesome is that?! Instant gift.


Sweet Mini Treat Bag cocoa packets with Stampin' Up!'s Seasonal Chums and Christmas Pines stamp sets and Coffee Break DSP~ Tanya Boser for Inky Friends
I had taken an entire pack of the Coffee Cafe DSP and created 24 Mini Treat Bags with them. Then I decorated them all, and made an inclusion card for those too with the dies, and filled these with cocoa packets. There were big sellers too. They almost sold out! To save time with the coloring, I stamped the reindeer on Crumb Cake cardstock, then colored his nose. bow, bell, and hooves with Blendas. And cuz I can't stop, I covered him in Clear Wink of Stella too 😉
We are going to pretend that I didn't use glittery gold embossing powder, that it is Gold embossing powder. I am about out of ours and need to order more! The sentiment is from Christmas Pines. I adore that set!

Simple embossed sentiment on the enclosure card. I should have brought these to OnStage too, but too little time and space for that! And guess what. A gift card fits in this too!

A crowd of tags with Stampin' Up!'s Seasonal Chums and Seasonal Tags dies and watercolor paper~ Tanya Boser for Inky Friends
Last up, I made a crowd of little tags on watercolor paper. The coordinating dies made my life so much easier, I am telling you! I used an Aqua-painter and ink from the lids of several inkpads to color these. And more Clear Wink of Stella!

Ok, off to see what Holly Krautkremer has created!
