My mission started with the Pure Textures (Host) Stamp Set. I’ve had this set for some time however by some means I preserve overlooking it when on the lookout for background pictures. The set comprises 4 completely different designs and I selected this gorgeous basketweave.

I discovered a 2″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Thick Very Vanilla Card in my scrap pocket and determined to make use of that for my tag base. Utilizing Crumb Cake ink I stamped the basketweave picture over the underside part of the cardboard. Then I reinked the stamp and stamped once more over the remainder. Pure Textures is a crimson rubber stamp set so I needed to guess the place to stamp, however I wasn’t sad with the way it turned out.

Now I needed some massive holly leaves and berries and for that I wanted the Christmas Season Stamp Set. The holly leaves stamp has two leaves with a niche between, I needed three leaves so I’d should stamp twice.

I began by inking up the holly leaves with Backyard Inexperienced ink, then I stamped off onto scrap paper. This eliminated a bit of of the ink. Subsequent, utilizing a Sponge Dauber I added some Backyard Inexperienced ink again onto the floor of the stamp simply alongside one aspect of every leaf. As soon as that was performed I stamped onto a scrap of Thick Primary White Card. After cleansing off the stamp I repeated the method a second time so I had 4 holly leaves in whole.

With holly comes berries and within the Christmas Season Stamp Set there’s a stamp with 4 berries. Selecting Actual Pink ink I stamped the berries onto Thick Primary White Card and I used to be prepared to chop the whole lot out.


The Christmas Season Stamp Set has a coordinating set of dies referred to as Seasonal Labels. However don’t be fooled, there’s way more than labels within the set, and that’s the place I began.

Utilizing my Mini Minimize & Emboss Machine I minimize out the holly leaves and berries utilizing the coordinating dies. The holly leaf die separates the pairs of stamped leaves, whereas the die for the berries retains all of them collectively. I truly solely needed three of the 4 berries so utilizing Paper Snips I minimize off the one which was separate from the remainder.

It was solely then that I regarded on the precise label dies within the set. These would make nice reward tags, with a pleasant form at each ends. So I selected one which was a shade below 2″ broad and simply fitted onto my basketweave piece. I minimize out the cardboard after which wanted so as to add a method to tie on some twine. This was simple utilizing one other of the dies within the set, I merely positioned it onto my minimize tag and ran it by means of the machine once more. This have me a type of triangular-shaped gap designed for precisely this function.

Lastly I used to be prepared to start out placing the tag collectively.

First I wrapped a chunk of Actual Pink 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon across the tag and secured it on the entrance with a bit of Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Subsequent I used a Bone Folder so as to add a curve to 3 of my 4 holly leaves (I’ll use the fourth one on one other mission). Then with a bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I hooked up the leaves to the tag (hiding the be part of within the ribbon). I completed off the leaves by including the set of three berries, popped up on Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I tied some white twine from the Baker’s Twine Necessities Pack to the highest of the tag and my mission was full. Or so I believed…

A short time later as I regarded on the tag I made a decision so as to add one closing element… I lined every of the berries with a dome of Shimmery Crystal Results. The moisture within the Crystal Results blended with the ink a bit of however the closing end result was properly price that further effort. I find it irresistible! What do you assume?
