Stampin’ Up! Curvy Keepsake Tags Tags and Tags!!

Wow.  Can you even believe it’s Friday again!  Something has happened to the space-time continuum, I’m pretty sure.  A shift in the Force.  And warp in the weft.  Something!  Time.  Is.  Flying!

A few weeks back, I did a Saturday evening video sharing a whole stable full of Mini Curvy Keepsake treat boxes – from wintery to Thanksgiving-y to Halloween-y….Click the pic to go to that post and see the video, if you like!

Today, based on my friend Amy Koender’s adorable reindeer that she made this week – and a picture of a spooky Halloween cakeball I saw on Pinterest – I created a NEW member of my Mini Curvy Keepsake Stable – with the help of an easy tag from the Tags Tags Tags Bundle.  Take a look-see:

Ladies and gents….I present…The One-Eyed Purple People Eater! LOL

And he’s super easy!

I started with a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock that I cut with the Mini Curvy Keepsake die to make the treat box.

Then I embossed it in the Hammered 3D Embossing Folder.  You’ll need to run the die cut thru twice to get the whole thing embossed…

Then I folded it all together and got ready to decorate him.  Her?

The eye is a mix-mash of die cuts from various sets in my stash.

His blood-shot eye is a flower from the Perennial Birthday set – stamped in Poppy Parade on Whisper White – then cut with a button die from the Arts & Crafts Die set.

Next is a Basic Black 1/2″ Circle Punch – then a Granny Apple Green Googly Eye embellishment.

I adhered the pieces and parts together – sort of wonky-ly cuz…you know.  One Eyed Purple People Eater – gotta be a little wonky!  Then I added it with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Ha – didn’t think I’d get one in, didja?!

His eyelash is a short piece of Granny Apple Green “grass” from the Wiggly Bugs dies, he’s got ears from the Tasteful Background Die set, his “horns” (in Gorgeous Grape) are actually “quotes” from the Hand Lettered Prose dies.  His fangs – I feel confident that in order to be a “people eater” he’d have to have some teeth! – are Whisper White leftovers from the Tasteful Background die set.  All stuck on with Liquid Glue!

Now – his hindend is also decorated – with a Granny Apple Green “tail” – cut with a branch die in the Mini Curvy Keepsake set.  It’s adhered with Liquid Glue and has a Gorgeous Grape gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones at the top.

Hey!  Have YOU ever seen a One-Eyed Purple People Eater?  PROVE that he doesn’t have a tail like that?! 😉

The tag is from the Tags Tags Tags stamps set.  I stamped it in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White and cut it with the matching die in the bundled Trio of Tags Set.  I also cut two little jack-o-lanterns (in Trio of Tags) in Gorgeous Grape and stuck them on with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a Gorgeous Grape Noble Peacock Rhinestone.

I ran a length of 3/8″ Tricolor Ribbon thru the top and tied it off with some White Solid Baker’s Twine – looping the tag in as I tied the bow.

And – that was it!

Et Voila! A new – and uber-spooky addition to my little gang!

It’s fun to look thru all the tools in your toolbox and come up with fun ways to decorate these fun Mini Curvy Keepsake boxes!  They can be snowmen, OEPPE’s, Reindeer, and Fall Favors!

Go ahead…. think outside the…Mini-Curvy-Keepsake Box!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Joy of Giving Tags and The 2019 Holiday Kits!

Good Friday, y’all!  The week has gone again and the weekend is upon us!

I’m expecting my 2019 Holiday Shares order to arrive today so I’ll spend the weekend cutting and chopping – all things being equal it all ought to go out on Monday.  Unless I messed something up in my order – which I’m not going to say has never happened, cuz it totally has! Fingers crossed, y’all!! 😉

So – one of the cool things – well THREE cool things, really! – in the 2019 Holiday Catalog are some amazing kits!  We’ve got the Joy of Giving Tag Kit, the Christmas Countdown Project Kit and the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley!

Yesterday I sat down and spent about an hour with the awesome Joy Of Giving Tag Kit – and at the end, I had thirty (yep – you read that right…THIRTY!) wonderful gift tags!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Parcels & Petals Gift Box Video Tutorial

Hey guys!  Happy Sunday – and happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there!  I hope you don’t get a tie today.

Unless you WANT a tie – then I totally hope that’s what you get!

So – if y’all were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not – you’ll probably want to watch this video!

In the video, I’m going to show how to make the cute little gift box with the dies in the new Perfect Parcels Die set – which is bundled with the Parcels & Petals stamp set in the new catalog!

I made a couple three little boxes with the die set – you can see all of them in the video! – but they all have a belly band created with the gorgeous new Pressed Petals Specialty DSP!

The box itself is made with some card stock – in this case Night of Navy.

And then the belly band is a simple 3 1/4″ x 8″ piece of Designer paper – in this case…Pressed Petals!

I wrapped some Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the box and then tied a “faux bow”.  In the video, be sure to watch how I tied the bow – I give you a tip for tying faux bows with ribbon that has two different sides!

Finally, I made a little tag with the Delightful Tag Topper and Detailed Trio Punches.  I used So Saffron – and stamped the flowers from Parcels & Petals (the sample you see above in Night of Navy – the ones in the video in Rococo Rose).

The sentiment is from Parcels & Petals and cut with the die in Perfect Parcels.

 

Et Voila!  It’s a pretty easy little box to make using the dies and stamps in the Parcels & Petals Bundle – especially after you see it done!  So…watch the video and you’ll be on your way!  I hope you like!

So…even with the scissoring and the thinning…when the Man decides to swim…sigh.

That’s not easy to dry, people.  And he never – EVER – wants to stay OUTSIDE after he’s had a dip.  He wants to come into the A/C with the family (specifically with the Mom).

Who am I to deny that face?

What lurks in these depths?

It’s not very scary.

But… it IS a little deaf.

And – it is VERY much NOT impressed by Finn!

Nor by my attempts to take her picture.

That looks like eyes.

It is NOT eyes.

It’s head – upside down – and…ears.  And…forehead?

Really.

Stampin’ Up! Bring on the Presents Jelly Jar Gifts!

Happy day after Christmas, y’all!  Hope your day was everything you’d hoped for and more!  Ours was great – and sort of longer than we’d planned.  And…fuller.

Yikes – I was full BEFORE dessert came out of the fridge.

Which absolutely does NOT mean I didn’t have a little of all the offerings! 😉

But – we got home a little later than planned – the horses were “STARVING OUT HERE, MOM!!”

I decided to use the fun little Bring on the Presents set one last time before the end of the year to make some little tags and bows for the jelly jars filled with homemade Apple Butter that I gave to my friends at dinner.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Quilted Smitten Mittens Gift Box for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Well, it’s darned near Christmas and we’ve got a pretty classic color challenge for you and for the season!  Will everyone go Christmas or…?? Be sure to check out all the projects when you get done here – and see for yourself!  

So, I don’t know about y’all – but my Christmas readiness level is about where it should be.

If it was September! 🙁

Which means that quick and easy is high on my list right now.  Thankfully, we’ve got our Mini Pizza Boxes and pretty Quilted Christmas DSP and the Smitten Mittens Bundle (but its retiring so grab it up!) to help.  Take a look-see!

These little beauties are just right for a piece of jewelry, or a gift card, or a cookie (they’re even food safe on the inside!).  So…basically…perfect for all your Christmas packaging.

So…buckle-up, buttercup…you’ll be done in a hot second.

I cut a piece of Gold Foil for a mat and a slightly smaller piece of Quilted Christmas DSP and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  I made a little “present” by wrapping a couple lengths of Cherry Cobbler (yes, not Real Red.  My bad!) 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon around it – securing the ends in the back with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped two Cherry Cobbler mittens from the Smitten Mittens stamp set and cut them with their matching dies in the Many Mittens Framelits.  I stamped some ric-rac “trim” across the top in Cherry Cobbler and embossed both mittens with the fun little embossing die in the Framelits.

The snowflakes are cut from some more of the plaid Quilted Christmas DSP with the snowflake die in the Many Mittens set and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I stuck a large Gold Faceted Gem on each mitten and adhered the first on with Liquid Glue – sliding it under the ribbon.  On the second mitten, I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler, then popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

See that gold Mini Tinsel?  That’s a sneak peek from the new 2018 Occasions Catalog – it comes in the Love Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack, paired with a roll of Powder Pink Tinsel.  Pretty!

I tied a double-length bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot, popped the whole thing on the top of my Mini Pizza Box with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals and…done!  Ready to fill with whatever strikes your fancy!  There are so many possibilities with these Mini Pizza Boxes – and I love the little Smitten Mittens tags, don’t you?  Hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my project, please take a little time to visit all the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hoppers today!

Stampin’ Up! Three Merry Little Labels Gift Tags for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #127

Hey, y’all!  Welcome to Tuesday and another fun challenge from Stamp Ink Paper!  

Our Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #127 this week is a theme challenge – All Wrapped Up! 

I decided it would be fun to make three identical – and yet…not! – gift tags using the Merry Little Labels and the bundled Everyday Label punch.  Take a look-see:

There’s a style for any kind of Christmas.  Woodsy, Traditional, and Glam!  And they’re all made exactly the same way.  Let’s go!

We’ll start with my favorite – the Woodsy tag.  Did you doubt that would be my fave?

I used the Lots of Labels Framelits to cut the large “tag” from a piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  With my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker, I added some “stitches” around the edge.  With a smaller die in the same framelits, I cut a piece of Merry Little Christmas DSP and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  I punched a hole in the top of the tag with my 1/8″ Handheld Circle Punch.

The sentiment – from Merry Little Labels – is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Crumb Cake and then cut with the Everyday Label Punch.  Before popping it on the front of the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals, I added a little something to the back of the tag.

That sentiment – also from Merry Little Labels – is heat embossed in White.  Then I used my Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Dark Stampin’ Blends to lightly add a little color to the holly.

For the embellishment on the front, I cut a couple of short boughs with the Pretty Pines Thinlits, from the same Old Olive/Black plaid Merry Little Christmas DSP that I’d used on the front and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  I looped some Jute Twine thru the hole I’d punched at the top and tied it in a simple knot.  Then I tied a bow and added it with a Glue Dot!  Done!

The other two tags were made the same way – just using slightly different ingredients!

For the traditional tag:

  • Tag base – Real Red card stock with Basic Black “stitches”
  • Middle layer – Old Olive design from Merry Little Christmas DSP.
  • Sentiment – White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Real Red
  • Ribbon – Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon  
  • Embellishment – a tiny white bow from the Season of Glitz Mini Gift Bows

And finally, the glam tag!

  • Tag Base – Whisper White card stock with Basic Black “stitches”
  • Middle Layer – Black and White design from Merry Little Christmas DSP
  • Sentiment – Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Whisper White
  • Ribbon – Silver Mini Tinsel Trim
  • Embellishment – two “berries” from the Pretty Pines Thinlits cut from Silver Foil

So – whether you’re a woodsy/homespun Christmas person, more traditional green and red or someone who loves the glitter and shine…Merry Little Labels and the Everyday Punch are your ticket to quick and gorgeous gift tags!  Hope you like!

TTFN

Finn Fan Fix  

This morning, we had some errands to run so, after our morning ablutions, we put the Man in his kennel.  

To be clear, I mean Finn! 🙂  

Upon our return, he did his usual meet-and-greet, got a quick drink and headed out to the golf cart.  

It’s what he does!  

Later, though, he decided he’d come and see what we were up to.  

And take a nap.  

It’s what he does!  

Would that we were all that cute when we slept! 🙂
