Autumn Wine Bottle Tag

Hi Stampers!

Today I have a non-card project for you.  Here is a festive way to dress up a bottle of wine that you may be giving as a gift this holiday season.  The one I have posted here is done in all Autumn colors, but this could very easily be done in Christmas colors for a last minute way of dressing up a bottle.  This would be a great hostess gift to give at a holiday party! 

I used my hot glue gun for creating the medallion and attaching it to the ribbon.  It just has a much better hold for this type of project than any other adhesive.

 

I love the burlap ribbon that Stampin' Up! sells.  It's perfect for making bottle tags because it lays so nicely!   I made my ribbon tails longer and then trimmed them down to the length I wanted right at the end.  I wanted my tails to come past the label so that it was more covered up.  That way the recipient moves the tag to the side to see what type of wine you gave them - it's kind of like unwrapping but with less mess! 

The banner was stamped using my Stamp-a-majig so that I could get perfect placement.  After stamping, I made the score lines on either side of the stamped image and then a second set of score lines 1/4" away from each of the first score lines.  After I did all of that, then I cut the flagged ends by hand. 


Do you like to dress up the bottles that you are giving this holiday season?  Let me know in the comments!

Take a Tour of the Feb 2014 Paper Pumpkin Kit

Hi Stampers!

Hope you all had a great weekend!  Are you excited for daylight savings time?  I love it!  I finally get to see the light of day!!!  Yay!

Today I have a tour of the February My Paper Pumpkin kit.  My Paper Pumpkin is the monthly paper crafting kit from Stampin' Up!  It's so much fun to get a little surprise crafting kit in the mail every month.

As usual, I open the kit to find a little thank you note from Stampin' Up!

This month we received photopolymer stamps!  Yay!  I love the photopolymer stamps so much because they are clear!  That means you can see where you stamp.  That means perfect stamp placement - and that means that all of your friends will be super impressed with your beautifully stamped projects. 

There are two stamps, a polka dot circle and a striped circle.  This month's Stampin' Spot is Pistachio Pudding - one of my favorite new In Colors.


Here's the packet with instructions and supplies.  This month we are creating adorable little gift bags!


Five craft gift bags.  Five!


Four sheets of punch out alphas in Baked Brown Sugar.


Bermuda Bay punch out circles and Whisper White "star burst" style punch outs.



The kit also comes with 10 pieces of Whisper White wide grosgrain ribbon, a ton of mini clothes pins, some Crushed Curry baker's twine, and Dimensionals!


Some people have some issues with photopolymer stamps because when they first go to use them, sometimes they have problems with getting a nice, crisp stamped image.  The problem is that in the manufacturing process, there is a residue that's on the stamps.  The best way to get rid of the residue is to "dirty" up your stamps.  What I have found is that all you need is a handy, dandy eraser!


Remember these eraser pencils?  This is my favorite stamp dirtying tool.  I erase the whole stamping surface of the stamp to dirty it up.  Then I will ink up the stamp and stamp on a piece of scratch paper a couple times.  Then I'll clean the stamp with my Stampin' Scrub and I'm good to go!


Now on to the project.   I stamped the polka dot circle, in Pistachio Pudding ink, on the star burst circles.  I adhered them to the Bermuda  Bay circles.


Then I selected the letters I wanted to use and popped them up on Dimensionals.


This is what the panels look like all put together!


Now on to the bag!  First you want to put a knot at the end of one piece of ribbon.


Thread the ribbon through the first hole from the inside of the bag to the outside.  Then thread it through the second hole from the outside to the inside.  Knot the other end.  Repeat on the other side of the bag with a second piece of ribbon.


Using the mini clothes pins and baker's twine, I first clip on the first and last letter.  Then I add in the remaining letters.  If you want to have a sort of permanent way of keeping the letters on, I taped them on to the bakers twine and then put the clothes pin on.

Here's the finished bag!


I made up four more.  Two I personalized with people's names and two I just put "enjoy" on.  I figured that it's a nice, general word to put on a gift bag and can be used for many occasions!


Check out all of the leftovers!  I'm stashing these away because I think they would be great for cards and scrapbook layouts.  Plus these stamps will be so useful for other types of cards!


I hope you enjoyed the tour through this month's Paper Pumpkin!  If you are interested in becoming a member of the My Paper Pumpkin subscription now is a great time!  From now through March 31st, 2014, any new subscriber will get two bonuses!  With your starter kit, Stampin' Up! will also send you a pack of 2012-2014 In Color Stampin' Write markers (a value of $14.95) and as a personal thank you for subscribing in the month of March, I will send you a free mystery prize!  Click on the link below to join.

Mosaic Madness Class I

Hi Stampers!

How many of your love the Mosaic Madness stamp set?  I know I do.  It's so versatile!  Today and on Wed. I'm going to show you how you can use that set to create beautiful Christmas cards.  These are just some of the cards that my customers made at my Mosaic Madness class.  It was so much fun!

For this card, I used the Mosaic stamp and punch to create a dangling ornament.  To create this ornament, I stamped the image 4 times on Whisper White card stock.  Then using the coordinating punch, I punched out all four images.  You next want to fold each punched piece in half.  Glue them together, but don's forget to glue the Baker's Twine down the center of the shape before finishing.  Voila - a 3D ornament for your card.


To create the window, I used the Circles Collection of framelits.  It was easy to make a window and then reverse mat it with the framelits.  If you use the Magnetic Platform (Item # 130658; $39.95) for your Big Shot, you can line up the framelits easily!


I used the Season of Style Designer Washi Tape to decorate the interior of the card and make a coordinating envelope.  Washi tape is super easy to use and it looks great!
