Hello and welcome back! Hello and welcome back! It's time for another Artisan Design Team blog hop. You're in for a treat because we have so much talent and so many different styles represented by these 20 women from around the globe. And on top of their talent, they are fun and fabulous as well. Please keep hopping through all 20 so you don't miss a thing! Be sure to use something like Google Translate for those blogs not in your native language. Also, you can find all of our projects for the year in one easy place, on our Pinterest board. You might have just arrived from Krista Frattin, and I know you loved her stunning project as much as I did.
This week we are sharing Christmas in July projects featuring the This Christmas Suite of products. These projects will also be shown on the Stampin' Up Facebook page this Friday. I decided to make another tag set, and a matching gift bag to hold them. This would make a great class, or you could make a few sets ahead of time to give as gifts during the holiday season.
Next, I cut two sizes of labels from the Tags & Labels Framelits Dies from Very Vanilla Cardstock, also part of the cardstock pack. I stamped the greetings (from the Peace This Christmas and Oh, What Fun stamp sets) in the middle in Black Memento ink. Then I stamped the other images around the greetings from the Peace This Christmas stamp set, using markers to ink the images with flowers and berries included.
I layered the stamped labels with Metallic Doilies, and finished them off with the Gold 1/8" Ribbon and the Gold 1/4" Natural Trim after punching a 1/8" hole in the top. I kept my tags pretty simple, but if you wanted to dress yours up more, you could add some sequins, rhinestones or even some glitter for even more sparkle. The greeting labels were adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I even stamped the backs with the "to" and "from" stamps from the Oh, What Fun stamp set.
Here is the little gift bag I made. I started with the plain Glassine Gift Bags, and added some more of the Gold 1/4" Natural Trim to tie it shut. I created another gift tag, with similar steps as above, and pulled through the long strands of the ribbon, to tie a bow with. It's such a simple but cute package!
Well, that is all for today! You'll find all of the supplies listed below. You'll want to click on the button below to move on to Michelle Long's fabulous project. Thanks so much for stopping by!
