A couple of weekends ago we had another fun stamping weekend. These are great opportunities to get lots of stamping done PLUS lots of laughs!!! I thought I would show you some of the projects I made. I think these will be over a couple of posts so be prepared. 🙂 I realised that I hadn’t shown you all the projects from the last one so I might have to get back to that later. For now, here is some of my creativity from the weekend.
One of my main goals for the weekend was to make some projects to sell at a few upcoming vendor fairs I am doing. I started off making some bottle tags. These are great for the Christmas period as Wine is a popular gift to give. Why not hang a tag off your wine gift!
These ones are using the ‘Wondrous Wreath’ stamp set and Framelits.
These ones I have used the ‘Cozy Christmas’ stamp set and the gorgeous ‘Home for Christmas’ paper.
These took a while but they were fun to make. I found a few different versions and tutorials for these when I went looking. It all depends on how you want to decorate them or whether you want them longer to fold up the card to make a pocket to tuck a treat in as well. For mine the card measures 20cm x 6.5cm (8″ x 2 1/2″). Score your card at 6.5 cm (2 1/2″). I punched out the circle using the 1 3/8″ circle punch.
I have to say these were the only projects I got made for the Vendor Fairs. I got a little distracted with some other fun stamping projects. 🙂
After making these tags I had lots of circles punched out. What is one to do??? Not waste them now! I used a lot of them on a card. I had some idea in my head but wasn’t sure how it would turn out. Check it out though.
I laid the circles out on a piece of Whisper White for the card mat. When I was happy with the arrangement I glued them down and then ran the piece through the Big Shot with the Stars Embossing Folder. Then I used markers on the greeting from ‘Cozy Christmas’ and cut it out using the ‘Tags and Labels’ Framelits and layered this onto a Gold Foil tag. I wrapped around some Gold ribbon and then layered it all on to an Old Olive card mat and then a Real Red card base.
Next post I will show you some more Christmas projects I made.
Stop by again soon,
