Thank You Snow Much Folded Gift Tag // 12 Tags of Christmas 2018 with Ellen Hutson LLC

Good morning, friend!

I hope you’ve having a merry December so far. Here in MA we’ve already received some snow flurries which, oddly enough, warms my heart! Who doesn’t love snow?!

I guess you could say my love for winter inspired my gift tag created for the 12 Tags of Christmas hosted by Ellen Hutson LLC. It includes crisp, blue hues and a touch of sparkle which is also today’s theme! If you want to see what I’m rambling about, just keep reading!

Let’s get started…

For the first 12 days of December, members of the Ellen Hutson design team are creating holiday tags inspired by a certain theme. Each designer is also teaming up with a brand and today is Right at Home’s special day!

Therese Calvird and I are each sharing tags inspired by the day’s theme, sparkle, and both featuring Right at Home products!

How fun, amiright?!

There’s also dozens of gift certificates to the Ellen Hutson shop up for grabs so head over once you’re done here for more information!

I’ll admit, when I was given my theme I was a bit stumped! I’m not much of a sparkle person, but I decided to make it work in the best way I could. To start, I knew I wanted to create a snowy background and my Snow Flurries Background Stamp was just what I needed. I white heat-embossed it onto a tag and used Ranger Distress Oxide inks in Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon to add color. The snowflakes resist the ink and remain pure white.

Next, I moved onto coloring in one of the adorable little girl images from my Winter Pals stamp set. I used the one playing in the snow and colored her in using hues similar to my background. To give her a place to stand, I cut a piece of white cardstock using a stitched, scallop border and added a touch of Tumbled Glass for more color. I adhered the strip to the bottom of the tag and popped her over top.

To embellish, I added a few sequins and squeezed a little Tonic Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard into the center of them. This is where the sparkle comes it! I added a sentiment also from the Winter Pals set and threaded a piece of silver tinsel through the tag. This tag has a pocket for a gift card, so I popped one in that matched the colors of the tag as a finishing touch!

For mixed media crafters…

One of the hottest trends in papercrafting right now is ink blending! Especially with the coveted Ranger Distress Oxides. Why not gift your crafting bestie a few new colors to add their collection? Choose a few of your favorites or colors that are perfect for creating backgrounds for the upcoming season! I chose Tattered Rose and Candied Apple for a fun, holiday palette and Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon for wintery backgrounds. Add in a few extra blending tools and foams and a fun stencil and you have a gift perfect for your inky friends!

For your friend who loves to be organized…

With the new year just around the corner (gulp), fresh planners and new pens will be lining the store shelves. Why not give your friend all the tools she needs to make her own? Start with a We R Memory Keepers Planner Punch Board and choose a few stamp sets that will help her build her spreads. I recommend Banner Alphabet, Banner Alphabet Add-On and Get Stuff Done! Add in a new pen or some bright colored ink pads and your friend is ready to take 2019 by storm!

Happy Holidays Festive Petals Die Set Tag // 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Who’s excited for the upcoming gift-wrapping season?! I am!

Sometimes I think that choosing your color palette and wrapping papers and bows (and tinsel and, of course, tags!) is more fun than shopping for the present inside! But that may be just me…

Anyways, today I’m thrilled to be sharing a cute, DIY, quick & simple tag I created as part of Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags InstaHop! This hop is happening on Instagram only, but I still thought I’d share my tag here.

Let’s get started…

As you may know, I just had a November release go live and since then I’ve been dying to make something with the new Festive Petals Die Set! It’s a stand-alone die set with delicate details and a multitude of possibilities! I knew it would make the perfect focal point for my tag design.

To start off, I inked up several panels of Starthmore Bristol Smooth cardstock with a variety of Ranger Distress Oxide ink colors. I used Candied Apple, Tattered Rose (for an unexpected softness!), Fossilized Amber, and Peeled Paint. Once my panels were finished, I ran them through my die-cutting machine along with a tag die and some white cardstock.

Along the bottom of the tag I stamped “Happy Holidays” from my Fa La La set. It nestled into the bottom space perfectly, but you could even leave it off and center the flower for a different look. I adhered the flower together using some liquid glue and popped it onto the tag! I even added a hole reinforcer that I cut from kraft cardstock.
