When you need a Tag: Day Six

If you’ve been waiting for the Git ‘er Done tag, this is your lucky day:

Maui Stamper Stampin' Up! Merry Patterns

  • Stamps: Merry Patterns (Host Exclusive October and November)
  • Color Palette: Whisper White, Basic Black, Old Olive
  • Accessories: Ornate Tag Topper Punch (retired), Merry Little Christmas DSP, Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, Stampin’ Write Markers

This is punch, stamp, stamp, stick, draw, done! The Merry Patterns stamp set is really easy to align (one of The Very Best Features of photopolymer stamps!) and it’s forgiving if you’re slightly off, too. I made narrow strips of Multipurpose-Adhesive-Sheet-backed DSP and it was super fast to stick them on the bottom of the tag. I used a Stampin’ Write marker to draw lines on either side of the DSP strip instead of layering with card stock – it’s so narrow you don’t even see it.

I did a version of these in Real Red, but I wasn’t quick enough with my camera and they’re all out the door!

When you need a Tag: Day Five

This is the same technique as yesterday – Adhesive Sheets to adhere DSP to a Thick Whisper White tag – but with a very different visual result. The starry night sky seemed to be begging for that perfect tree!

Maui Stamper Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh

  • Stamps: Seasonal Chums (greeting)
  • Color Palette: Whisper White, Basic Black, Garden Green, Copper Foil
  • Accessories: Big Shot, Santas Sleigh Thinlits, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Metallic Sequins (retired)

To get the copper “shadow” on both sides of the tree, I just cut the copper tree in two down the middle. I also shortened the trunk, as it was too long to fit on my tag.

This tree is embellished with one of the patterns from Touches of Texture. I added Rhinestone jewels to the branches, and I personally think it’s a little too over-the-top. You could drape this tree with a mini-sequin garland and it would really sparkle!
