Eat Cake!

Hi Stampers!

Today I'm sharing the birthday card that I made for my momma!   At the beginning of the month I went to the Stampin' Up! catalog premier.  It was a fun night, and I received a new stamp set for attending.  I couldn't resist using it to create a fun birthday card.

Isn't the tag really cute?  I also added on some hardwear to draw attention to the most important part of the card - the slice of cake!  Yum!  I stamped the cake on a separate sheet of cardstock, colored it with markers, and then fussy cut it out.  The slice is popped up on a dimensional to give more of a 3D look to the tag.  I paired it up with some fun and festive patterned paper designed by Kelly Purkey.

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!

Check out my pre-order!

Hi Stampers!

Want to see all of the goodies I pre-ordered from the Occasions 2015 and Sale-A-Bration catalogs?  Check out the two videos I have posted of me opening my order.  I will warn you that I have no idea what I'm doing when I'm filming videos and I have zero editing skills.  I'll stick to stamping instead of becoming a filmmaker.

Enjoy!  Tell me in the comments what new products you are most excited about!
