DIY Christmas tags with the Stampin' Up! Delightful Tag Topper punch

Hello friends. How are you? Today I have for you some quick and easy Stampin' Up! Christmas Tags using bits and pieces I had left over on my craft desk. Don't you love those types of projects?

One of the things that made them quick and easy, was the Stampin' Up! Delightful Tag Topper Punch. This nifty punch cuts the top part of tags for three different width tags: 1", 1.5" and 2". You can then make your tags any length you want. It's $38 plus postage, and available HERE in my online store, or Contact Me to order by phone or email.

Here's a look at the three different sizes of tags you can cut toppers for (they can be any length, but the punch cuts three widths).

As you can see the punch is perfect for Christmas tags. I have decorated mine with some left over Toile Tidings Designer Paper, some Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake stamping with Gleaming Christmas stamp set and some embellishments (the tinsel trim and stickers) from the Most Wonderful Time product medley (all links at the bottom of the post).

To add some texture and dimension, I added some raw twine from my retired stash, and also made the berries 'pop' by using a combination of Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots and Shimmery Crystal Effects.

I'm really pleased how these turned out and they were so quick and easy to make. They look great with the matching Toile Tidings wrapping paper too!

Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas Week 12 - Sharing the joy of a handmade Christmas.

Heart of christmas 2019 full size

 

Welcome to week 12 of Heart of Christmas from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team. We hope you are feeling inspired by these weekly blog hops.

This week I have showcased some more cards using the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley that I also created with last week. I'm finding it so quick and easy to create using this medley.

This one uses one of my most favourite pieces of DSP from this kit. I love the subtle colours with the hint of gold foil on the antlers.

I love the touch of festive that the white and gold trim brings to this medley. I love those berries on the stickers too. I didn't do it on this one, but it would be great to add Crystal Effects to these.

This one is a little more clean and simple. I used an oval template to create a Seaside Spray sponged oval and then stamped the trees over the top of that.

I hope this has given you some more ideas about how to use the Most Wonderful Time product medley. It's a great collection of coordinating products and super easy to create with as it has everything you need.

Art With Heart Team October Blog Hop: Ways to use Stampin' Up! Embossing Folders

Art With Heart Stampin Up Team October Blog Hop Embossing Folders

Hey there. Welcome to another Art With Heart Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Stampin' Up's! versatile range of Embossing Folders. There are new Embossing Folders available in every Stampin' Up! catalogue and they are an inexpensive way of adding WOW! to your projects. Currently there are 24 different Embossing Folders in the range.

Tonight we plan on showing you lots of ideas on how to use these folders. My projects are using the Heirloom Frames Dies and coordinating embossing folders.

Woven Heirlooms Dies and Embossing Folders Stampin Up

I have used these products to create some faux wood antique photo frames, which I have used on a scrapbook page and a card. I love how they turned out and they were super easy to make.

Ian page 7

I used the woodgrain 12x12" paper in the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper. I adhered this onto some backing cardstock before I cut the frames.

Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper

The steps to make the frames are:

  1. Adhere the woodgrain DSP to the backing card.
  2. Cut the frames first using the dies.
  3. Place the cut dies in the embossing folders, paying particular attention to which parts you wanted raised. As these are 3D folders, I recommend using the 3D embossing plate (link at bottom of page) to give extra ooomph to the sandwich and a good impression.
  4. Remove the frames, and then sponge Early Espresso ink over the raised pieces, building up to the desired shade.

Now it's time to use the frames. My first project is a heritage style scrapbook page with some childhood photos of myself and my brother, who died 12 years ago. I love these photos, and I think he would forgive me for scrapbooking them in floral papers and pink, lol.

I have used more of the Pressed Petals DSP on the page (I adhered the backing page oto Crumb Cake cardstock, ditressing the edges and spongeing with Early Espresso ink), as well as some of the coordinating Pressed Petals specialty washi tape, metal Designer Elements and a page from the coordinating Pressed Petals journal (the pages are perforated so can be torn off and added to scrapbook pages or cards).  The die-cut 'Forever' word is from the Sweet Silhouettes die set (links below the post).

As an extra embellishment, I created a vintage looking daisy with the Medium Daisy Punch and some Very Vanilla cardstock, which I sponged with Rococo Rose ink and a touch of Early Espresso to age it a bit. Love those Perennial Essence floral centres to give a realistic look to the daisy.

How beautiful is that vintage washi tape from the Pressed Petals Designer Washi tape. I also added a few subtle butterflies around the page which were cut from the Pressed Petals DSP using the Butterfly Duet punch. Now I just need to add the journaling to my page.

My second project is a Christmas card, using the rectangle frame and Toile Christmas stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue.

I have watercoloured the images on our awesome Fluid 100 cotton watercolour paper. I've used Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Garden Green ink and an Aquapainter. I've added a couple of Garden Green die cut pieces from the Leaf punch. The backing piece of DSP is from Toile Tidings.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today. Now it's time to leave the Yarra Valley region on the outskirts of Melbourne and visit the very clever Catherine Proctor in the Northern Beaches area of Sydney.

Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas Week 10: Spreading the joy of creativity for a handmade Christmas.

Heart of christmas 2019 full size

 

Hey friends. It's tome for some more Christmas inspiration. Today I am playing with the new Stampin' Up! product suite called 'Christmastime is Here'. This has been available to demonstrators as a special preorder in October and is available to purchase by customers on November 1st. 

This suite contains Designer Series Paper with gold foiling (3 double sided designs x 4 pages each at 12x12" size), a stamp set and coordinating dies, gold glitter embellishments and a gold ribbon. 

Stampin Up Christmastime is Here cards by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

The dies actually cut out one of the images in the Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper, so both of these cards use that image. There is also a lined image you can colour with blends and some bits and pieces to fill in the image. Here's a look at the stamp set.

Here's a look at the whole product suite. Each of the individual items can be purchased separately, so you can just get the bits and pieces you like. Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter (click the button in the right hand column) to hear all about this new release on November 1st.

I was drawn to this suite for many reasons. I love roses, I love the traditional colours for Christmas, and I'm a sucker for gold foiling in my DSP.  I also really love the warmth in the sentiment I have used on these cards.

The die cuts are really interesting as well, and add visual interest to your cards. I love these ones that I have used around the sentiment label.

Overall, the Christmastime is Here suite is a lovely group of coordinating products, in traditional colours for Christmas and beyond.
