Best Yet punch gift tags

I totally forgot I’d made these!  These little gift tag bags were one of my free gifts at my Sale-a-bration launch earlier this year.

I took an SU cellophane bag and slid a piece of DSP – Bella Bleu – inside.  Then I punched the Word Window punch to make a slit at the top of the bag.  Then the little gift tags went inside and I tied a knot of Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon at the top.

 I based the gift tags on the colours from Bella Bleu. I love Not Quite Navy, Kraft, Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla together!

 I love the way Stampin’ Up! punches layer together and look so good! I’ve used a variety of punches for these gift tags, but I made the Scallop Square punch my “unifying” punch on each gift tag.  For the above gift tag I also used the 1 3/4″ Circle and Designer Label punches.

For the above gift tag, I used also the 1 1/4″ Square and 1 3/8″ Square punches.  And, sadly, the stamp set Best Yet will only be available as a hostess set until the end of the month – and then it’s gone! 

And for this gift tag, I used the Curvy Label and Wide Oval punches. 

Thanks for looking 🙂

Medallion make-and-take

This is the last make-and-take card my guests made at my Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue launch party.

The card is made with the colours Taken With Teal, Regal Rose, and Close to Cocoa.  Don’t you love these colours together? I know, I do!  I stamped the Medallion in Versamark ink and then popped the colour with my pastels – I love this soft effect!

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments, which is stamped on Whisper White in Taken With Teal and layered on a the Curvy Label punch, cut in half and sponged in Taken With Teal.  Naturally, the card is finished off with Dazzling Diamonds and a rhinestone brad!

Medallion card in a box

Recently, we had a team day where we took a card in a box and made as many cards from boxes as we could on the day.  I managed to make 10 on the day! 

This was my card in a  box:

I was inspired to make this card by SCS here.  It’s a gorgeous card, so please check out the link!  I altered the colours a little.  So I used Kraft as the base, Not Quite Navy for the scalloped edge strip, textured Sahara Sand for the paper pierced strip and I stamped the Medallion on Bella Bleu DSP in Not Quite Navy.  And I stamped the sentiment from Sincere Salutations in Not Quite Navy.  A touch of Dazzling Diamonds and the card is finished!

This is one of the cards I’ve made from the new stamp set, In the Stars (page 14).  I think this stamp set is so versatile … it makes Christmas cards, birthday cards, baby cards, congrats cards … your imagination is the only spark it needs!

I made this card using the colours Night of Navy, Soft Sky, Silver and Sahara Sand.  The card above I didn’t make the bauble with a bow … the card below, I used my Night of Navy marker pen to create a bow … which do you prefer?  Bow or no bow??
