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!!!)

R is for Reindeer

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.

Stampin' Up! Tidings All Around and Detailed Deer Christmas wreath card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

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

Stampin' Up! Tidings All Around and Detailed Deer Christmas wreath card idea with Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

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.

Stampin' Up! Tidings All Around and Detailed Deer Christmas wreath card idea with Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

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.

Stampin' Up! Tidings All Around and Detailed Deer Christmas wreath card idea with Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

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!

P is for Perfectly Plaid and Pine Tree Punch

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’ve been making a lot of 3D projects lately so I decided to share a quick & easy card today using the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set, Pine Tree Punch, and Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper. (Now that’s a lot of P’s!!!)

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Pine Tree Punch Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I’ll get right to the details:

Measurements

  • Shaded Spruce card base:  5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Mint Macaron cardstock: 3″ x 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White: 2 1/2″ x 4″ to stamp 2 trees, 4″ x 5 1/4″ for inside card
  • Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 DSP: 3″ x 5 1/2″, 3 x 6 for envelope flap
  • Gold Foil: 2 pieces at 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scraps to cut 3 stars

Directions

  • Punch 3 trees from the Mint Macaron cardstock with the Pine Tree Punch.
  • Adhere the Mint Macaron to the DSP.
  • Adhere the Gold Foil strips to the top and bottom of the Mint Macaron.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Versamark ink along the bottom of the card base and heat emboss with Gold Embossing Powder. *I masked the top part of the sentiment.
  • Adhere the mint macaron layered piece to the card base.
  • Stamp the two trees in Shaded Spruce Ink. Stamp the leaves on top in Mint Macaron ink. Punch both trees out with the Pine Tree Punch and adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Cut 3 stars from Gold Foil using Stitched Stars Dies. Adhere to top of trees with Liquid Glue.
  • Add Red Rhinestone Jewels to stamped trees.

  • Punch the envelope flap of a Gold Foil-Edged Envelope with the Pine Tree Punch.
  • Adhere the 3 x 6 DSP inside the envelope flap so the plaid pattern is showing through the punched tree.

I’d like to give a shout out to Linda Heller (stampingschool.com) for this card design.  I saved it back in 2014 and can’t believe it has taken me this long to CASE it! I really like how it turned out and love that it was so quick & easy!
