Fast & Simple Tropical Oasis Tag

Today’s project is a tag I made for the gifts I brought back from Mexico for my Candy Hearts team members. I used the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper and the Tropical Oasis Trinkets along with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

Every year, my husband and I join a few other couples for a midwinter tropical vacation. All the husbands met while speaking on a software conference series called No Fluff Just Stuff. They call themselves the Fluff Talkers, and the spouses call ourselves the Fluff Widows. This was the 11th year the couples have vacationed together on what we call the “Pasty Geeks” trip. This year we went to Mexico. It’s a great place to get vanilla, so that’s what we brought back as souvenirs.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Real Red card stock (CS) cut to 2″ x 3-1/2″
  • Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 1-3/4″ x 2-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 1-3/4″ x 2-1/2″

Cut using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch:

  • one end of the Real Red CS

Assembled the tag:

  • Whisper White CS glued onto one side of the tag
  • DSP glued onto the other side of the tag
  • trinket adhered onto the DSP using Mini Glue Dots
  • tag tied onto the bottle’s red elastic band using Linen Thread
  • NOTE: I folded the thread in half, pushed the loop end through the hole in the tag, ran the two ends through the loop, and pulled taut. Then I tied a knot in the two pieces of thread about 1/4″ or so above the tag. This leaves a bit of the thread for the tag to dangle when it’s tied to the bottle, instead of the tag being tied up against the bottle.

Come to Gather Gift Bag for Autumn IRBH

inKing Royalty Blog Hop, September 2019, Autumn

It’s time for the Inking Royalty Blog Hop for September! This month’s theme in Autumn. And what could be more Autumnal than beautifully colored leaves? For my project, I used products from the Come to Gather Suite to decorate a gift bag from last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. (You can see another project I made using these bags here.) From the suite, I used the Gather Together bundle (Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves Dies) and Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.

I was going to use the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack as well, but I got so carried away with the leaves, I didn’t think it needed it. I used each embossed leaf die (3 in the set) to cut two each of four colors – and I used 18 of the 24 leaves I cut! Guess I just couldn’t stop until I had a big leaf pile! Doesn’t it make you want to jump in and scatter them?

Be sure to hop all the way around to all the stops. You don’t want to miss any of the great projects from this talented group!

A Little Smile for the PPP Blog Hop

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog HopS

It’s time for the June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called A Little Smile, and it everything you need for 16 gift cards & envelopes and a box to keep them in. I’ve used the kit components to create a full size card and a tag for a treat bag. 

Be sure to hop around to all the stops to see all the great alternate projects this group has made using this month’s A Little Smile kit!

Here’s what I made:

I’m out of town at a craft retreat and don’t have my lightbox, so my photos look different than usual.

The card: I tried to create a reflection of mountains and sky. It isn’t a perfect mirrored image, but I think you get the idea.A Little Smile June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up!, alternative projects for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop, made by Candy Ford #stampcandy

 

The treat bag: I made a simple tag that matched the card, and attached it using a copper library clip from the Tags & More Accessory Kit. A Little Smile June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up!, alternative projects for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop, made by Candy Ford #stampcandy
