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.
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.
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!

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! It doesn’t matter how old my kids or I get; every Christmas Eve I have to read the Night Before Christmas. I just love the part where Santa calls his reindeer by name. I have two cards to share with you today featuring (yet to be named) reindeer.
These cards showcase the Tidings All Around Bundle which I am featuring this month in my FREE tutorials. I offer 3 exclusive tutorials each month with a minimum $40 or more online order. Today is the perfect day to place an order as Stampin’ Up! is having a 24-Hour Flash sale with over 50 stamp sets on sale for 15% off! (*See below for more details.) I have been playing with the wreath die all month long and it is so versatile. (I will link to my previous projects below.) First, I want to share some tips with today’s cards. If you look closely you will notice that both cards are pretty much the same except for the card orientation and different colors.
Here’s the details:
Materials & Measurements
Pretty Peacock card base: 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2, 2 pieces 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 to stamp & cut wreaths, 1/4 strip for envelope
Shaded Spruce card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4, 2 pieces 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 to stamp & cut wreaths, 1/4 strip for envelope
Very Vanilla: 2 cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″ for front and inside of card, scrap to stamp sentiment on plaid card
DSP: 2 pieces 3/4 x 4, and either 3/4 x 4 3/8 or 3/4 x 5 3/4 for envelope
Gold or Copper Foil: 3 1/2 x 4 to cut reindeer
Copper Trim or Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon to tie bow
Very Vanilla Classic Weave Ribbon to cut Merry Christmas for sentiment on copper card
This card uses the Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper. I love the classic Christmas plaids with gold foil accents. I stamped the wreath from Tidings All Around on Shaded Spruce cardstock with Shaded Spruce ink and cut it out with the All-Around Wreath Dies. I also cut the “leafy” wreath in Shaded Spruce too and layered it behind the the stamped wreath. I cut the reindeer out in Gold Foil to go with the gold foil in the DSP. The wreath and reindeer are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment is from Tidings All Around and stamped in Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink and popped up with dimensionals. I combined two different sentiments to get Merry Christmas. I “masked” the part of each sentiment that I didn’t want by inking the sentiment first, then putting a piece of tape over the part I didn’t want to stamp on the paper. I find this much easier and quicker than masking techniques where you have to stamp then cut out the part you don’t want and cover it up on your cardstock. Sometimes I even just use a sticky note to cover the part I don’t want or put the sticky note on my paper so the inked part I don’t want is on the sticky note. It really depends on how close the sentiments are to each other which method I use. Other times I may use a Stampin’ Write Marker to just ink the part of the sentiment I want. (*If you try masking with markers make sure your stamp is clean and dry from residue.)
I added matching DSP and a strip of cardstock to the front of the envelope. I love this added touch and always finish my envelopes to coordinate.
The next card is made the same with just a few changes.
This card is vertical instead of horizontal which gives it a different look don’t you think? Also, I used VersaMark Ink and Copper Embossing Powder to heat emboss the wreath design. The reindeer for this card is cut from Copper Foil to coordinate with the copper in the DSP. Instead of stamping a sentiment I cut the ribbon from the Brightly Gleaming Suite and used that as the sentiment. (*Tip: TO keep it from fraying I used Tear& Tape on the back and didn’t remove the backing. I just added dimensionals on top of the Tear & Tape.) I love the added texture from the copper embossing powder and classic woven ribbon.
TO decorate the coordinating envelope for this card I put the DSP strip across the bottom of the envelope on the front. There are so many ways to dress up an envelope!
So which reindeer card do you prefer, Plaid with Gold Foil or Brightly Gleaming with Copper Foil? Do you usually make horizontal or vertical cards? I love hearing from you so I hope you will leave a comment below and let me know which one you like!
