W is for Wine (and a Wonderful Weekend)

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! I will be wrapping up this series this week. I can’t wait to share what’s new!! I spent the weekend with some of my stamping friends in Hartford, Connecticut at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Convention. We had so much fun! We won lots of prizes and played with new products that will be coming out in the new January – June 2020 Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure.  I’ll share photos and more later this week. Lets get to today’s projects.

Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! I always like to have a few extra gifts on hand for hostess gifts and unexpected events (like when my husband comes home and says he needs gifts for his coworkers for tomorrow.) My friends and I like to enjoy a glass of wine when we get together so I always have a few bottles on hand. I like to dress up wine bottles with beautiful handmade tags.

Stampin' Up! Wine Tag idea made with Cheers Die and Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Cheers Die with some of the products from the Christmastime is Here Suite (Roses Dies, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots, and Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper) to make this tag.  I love the elegant look with the Gold Foil on the Mossy Meadow! I chose the Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler cardstock because they match the wine bottle so well!

Here’s the details to make this simple wine tag.

Materials & Measurements

  • Mossy Meadow:  3 x 8 1/2 scored at 3″.  Center and punch a circle in the 3″ section using the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch.
  • Gold Foil: Cut Cheers Die and 2 design elements from Roses Dies, punch leaf
  • Cherry Cobbler: 3 x 3
  • Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper: 3 x 2 3/4, scrap to fussy cut flower *Adhere flower and gold foil leaf with Stampin’ Dimensional.

*Tip: When adhering intricate dies I use the silicone craft sheet and apply liquid glue with a sponge dauber.

If you prefer chocolate to wine here’s another idea.

Stampin' Up! Tidings All Around Wine Tag idea made with Cheers Die and Seasonal Wreath Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I stopped at the Lindt Chocolate Factory in Carlisle, PA on my way home from Hartford this weekend. It’s like walking in to chocolate heaven! I bought this “champagne” bottle for a Yankee Swap gift exchange we have every year. (Chocolate is always a big hit!)

I made this tag using the Tidings All Around Stamp Set with the All-Around Wreath Dies and Cheers Die. I sandwiched a piece of vellum between the wreath layers so you wouldn’t see the candy through the wreath.  I looped the ribbon and adhered it on the back of the wreath with some mini glue dots. I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots around the wreath and adhered a bow on top.

So which do you prefer…wine or chocolate? Here’s another look at both tags.

Let’s have some fun! I wonder if we watch some of the same tv shows.  Here’s a quote from one of my favorite series, “I drink wine and I know things.Who said that? What’s the name of the series? Leave a comment below and if you get both questions correct I will put your name in to a random drawing to win one of these wine tags.

Have a wonderful week!

I love to make gift tags for all my gifts. It takes no time at all making three at a time! Here’s a look at some of the different projects I made.

Halloween treat ideas using the Tags Tags Tags Bundle by Stampin' Up! - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These tags are perfect for treat bags and boxes. You can use the ready made Tiny Treat Boxes and Pillow Boxes from Stampin’ Up! or make your own little treat bag from a piece of 6 x 6 DSP like I did below.

Christmas bag idea using the Tags Tags Tags Bundle from Stampin' Up! - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This little bag is quick & easy to make! Score a piece of 6 x 6 DSP at 1 1/2 and 4 1/2 on one side then score the other side at 2 1/4 and 3 3/4. I used the Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Fold on the score lines then cut along the score lines and trim as shown below.  Adhere with Tear & Tape or Liquid Glue for a strong hold.

I pinched the sides and punched a hole at the top with a hole punch.  I thread the ribbon through the tag and bag  and secured with a bakers twine. I added the jingle bell before tying a bow. The adorable tag is stamped with Memento Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

I had fun sponging the Halloween tags! If you look on page 56 in the Holiday Catalog you will see where I got my inspiration! The catalog is full of so many great ideas be sure to check them out and CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) away! This tag was sponged to look like the candy corn treat enclosed!

The Black Scalloped Edge Ribbon wraps it all up for a a nice presentation!

The Trip of Tags Dies has extra little dies for the holidays like these jack-0-lanterns I used on the tag for my pillow box.

How cute are these?! There’s a snowflake for winter and hearts for Valentine’s or other “lovely” projects! You’ll be seeing more of these soon as I have been having fun creating all kinds of projects! The pillow boxes are great for enclosing gift cards, treats, or small gifts.

These tags make sweet & simple 3 x 3 note cards too.  I made this adorable Halloween one to enclose with the Paper Pumpkin treat boxes I sent my daughter for her dorm residents. She loves books so this pattern from the Monster Bash  Designer Series Paper was perfect for her!

Stampin' Up! Tags Tags Tags Bundle and Monster Bash Designer Series Paper 3 x 3 Halloween note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I popped up the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added the raven from the Monster Bash Enamel Shapes to cover up the hole at the top of the die. My daughter is very familiar with ravens from the Tower of London. (I wouldn’t get that close!!!)

O is for Ornaments

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! I love to decorate for the holidays and have collected so many ornaments over the years that I put up several trees. (My son refers to our home as the “forest” during the holidays. LOL) One tree has a collection of White House ornaments from my mother-in-law.  She gave us one every year and I have continued this tradition after her passing as my kids love this tree as much as my husband and me. It is a beautiful reminder of a wonderful lady! We have several other “theme” trees; however, my favorite tree to decorate is the family tree with my kids homemade ornaments from over the years. (I also have a photo ornament of them from every year which brings back memories as I put them on the tree.) So, now that you know all about my love of ornaments, you can understand why the Christmas Gleaming Bundle (which includes the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set and Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack) was among my “must haves” from the holiday catalog! Here’s a look at the bundle.

Here’s a fun project I made.

Stampin' Up! Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper and Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack 3D ornament tag or gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love punches! They make it quick & easy to create! You can stamp and punch different ornaments from the stamp set or punch Designer Series Paper like I did for this project. Do you recognize this DSP? It is a special limited edition from a new suite, Christmastime is Here, which will be available November 1st.

Sampin' Up! Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper (available Nov. 1st) - For inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This paper is absolutely gorgeous! *I will be offering a special product share so you can get a taste of the paper, ribbon, and embellishments without breaking the bank! (Look for more details coming soon!)

I punched 20 of each ornament from two different patterns of the DSP, folded 15 of each in half and glued 3 together for each ornament. Then each one was glued to a flat (unfolded) punched ornament. You need 5 large ornaments and 5 small ornaments to make this project.

I punched a 1 3/8″ Circle from Cherry Cobbler cardstock and glued the 5 large ornaments first then the 5 smaller ornaments in between.

Next I punched a 1 1/4″ gold foil circle and a 1″ circle from the DSP and layered the two together.  I stacked 3 Stampin’ Dimensionals in the middle of the ornament and adhered the layered circles.  I used the Gold Glimmer Ribbon (available Nov. 1st) to make a bow and attached it with Glue Dots in the center. I stamped a sentiment on Whisper White Shimmery Cardstock and punched it out with the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch.  I added a ribbon loop and a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots (also from the Christmastime is Here Suite available Nov. 1st) and adhered on the back.

This can be used as a tag on a gift or wine bottle, ornament on a tree, or as a display on a table.

Stampin' Up! Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper and Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack 3D ornament gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I purchased the display stand shown at Pier One Imports. You can find different versions at most big box stores in the craft section. This would make a wonderful gift for a friend, family member, or hostess. These colors are perfect for my mom (but I love it so much I might not be able to part with it)! I will be definitely be making more! I can’t wait to try different color combinations!
