Easy Last-Minute Christmas Gift Tags

Are you looking for some easy, last minute Christmas gift tags ideas?  I am sharing 4 tags that you can easily mass-produce, showcasing the Waffle Flower Crafts Special Delivery stamp set and die set, with the Doodlebug Milk and Cookies Odds and Ends, and the Stitched Scalloped Nesting Tag Dies by Kat Scrappiness, available at the shop.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock with my Memento Tuxedo black ink using my Tim Holtz Tonic Stamp Platform.   I colored the images in with my Copic markers.

Using my new favorite Sharpie White Paint Pen, I added some white polka dots on the images then die-cut them using the coordinating die.   I also die-cut the tags using the Stitched Scalloped Nesting Tag dies on white card stock.  I used an embossing die from my stash to add some details on my tag.

I adhered the images onto my white tags, and added the Gingerbread Men from Doodlebug and sequins on the red bows, using the Sparkling Clear Slid Confetti mix.  Here are the tags:

Chocolate Lover’s Card Kit – 5 Projects

Hello, hello my crafty peeps!  I hope you are all having a wonderful day!  I am back to share with you my projects, showcasing the limited-edition Chocolate Lover’s card kit by Kat Scrappiness.  I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS KIT!  There are so many possibilities using the supplies included in this kit.  Here’s what’s inside, plus the two add-ons, which is the Chocolate Lover’s sentiment stamp set and the Wonky Wavy Stitched Heart Dies.

 

KatScrapCardKit

 

For my first project, I wanted to create a fun shaker card using the 6 X 6 paper pad by Pebbles and the Mint Sprinkles Sequin mix as my shaker material.  I love this color combo.  I also included a short video showing you how to stamp the layered chocolate stamp set.  It looks so realistic.  Here’s the first card:

Here’s the YouTube video showing you how I stamped the chocolate:

 

 

For my second project, I wanted to create a simple, one-layer card, with the chocolate layering stamp set and the Chocolate Lover’s sentiment stamp set.  I added the pink and blue dots and finished my design with glossy accents.  The card is very simple but I love how it turned out.  Here’s the second card:

For my third project, I used the chocolate image again with the “Sweet” script sentiment  die included in the kit, as well as the Fancy Scalloped Stitched Border dies.  I finished my design by adding the gold twine.  Here’s the third card:

For my fourth project, I used the chocolate candy bar stamp set again but this time, I added a wreath die-cut using the Avery Elle Star Frames Elle-Ments Dies and also created a wavy card-front using the Fancy Scalloped Stitched Border Dies.  I finished my design by adding the wooden heart embellishments from the kit, coloring it with my Copic marker.  Here’s the fourth card:

For my last project today, I wanted to use the stamp set to decorate a giant Hershey’s chocolate candy bar to give as a gift either for Christmas or Valentine’s Day.

I wrapped the candy bar with a plain white typing paper.  I used a stamp from my stash to stamp the snowman’s face on the paper, and colored it with my Copic markers.  I cut a square and a rectangle black card stock to create the snowman’s hat.  I then stamped my sentiment on the hat with versa mark ink, and heat-embossed it with my white embossing powder.  I adhered the hat to the snowman.  I used my 1/2 inch circle punch to create the buttons for the snowman, and adhered it onto the wrapped candy with my Xyron Mega Tape Runner.  To finish my design, I added the red seam binding for the snowman’s scarf, and added the heart embellishment by pebbles, included in the kit.  It turned out so cute.  You can easily mass-produce this project to give as gifts to teachers, your friendly neighborhood mailman/mailwoman, or anyone else.  Here’s my fifth project.  Isn’t he cute?

KatScrapBlackFri2017

I am sharing some cute tags today showcasing the Kat Scrappiness Naughty stamp set and die, with the Gerda Steiner Peeking Friends stamp set, Stitched Scalloped Nesting Tag Dies and Pop-Out die, plus a bunch of other supplies available at the shop.

I stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock with my memento tuxedo black ink using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform.  I colored my images in with Copic markers.   Since I didn’t have the die for the Gerda Steiner stamp set, I fuzzy-cut them with my scissors.  I also die-cut the naughty sentiment die on black card stock twice.

I die-cut 4 tags using the stitched scalloped nesting tag dies on white card stock, as well as 4 tags with the Doodblebug Christmas patterned paper.  I used the pop-out die to die-cut the window on the patterned paper.  I adhered the images first on the white card stock, and then adhered the patterned paper on top.  To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment on black card stock for two of the tags with VersaMark ink and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder.

Here are my Christmas tags today:

Thankful For You – Kat Scrappiness – Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

FallCoffeeLoversBlogHop Photo

I am so excited to share with you today’s post!  It is that time of the year again.  Falling leaves, sweater weather (at least for some of you), pumpkin spice, and the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Amy Tsuruta and the rest of her team responsible for facilitating this great hop!  I don’t know how you guys do it but you all rock!

Today I made a card showcasing products from the #KatScrappiness shop (www.katscrappiness.com).    THERE IS A SPECIAL COUPON CODE at the shop from September 15th to September 22nd only, so hurry and shop for all the crafty products you’ve always wanted (use coupon code: “COFFEEHOP” for 15% off your order).  THERE IS ALSO A GIVEAWAY!  Kat is a super sponsor and is giving away a $25 gift card from her shop.  Please check all of the details for the giveaway on the www.coffeelovingcardmakers.com.

Here’s my card today and I also have a process video for you if you’d like to see how I made the card.  I didn’t have the dies for this stamp set so I will also show you how I cut the image, using my Brother Scan N Cut 2.  I love this machine and even though it is quite the investment, it will save you money because you don’t really have to buy coordinating dies anymore. [The part where I was showing you how I used the ScanNCut on the video was a bit shaky so I apologize for that.  It was hard to film and do the cutting at the same time. I will be better next time] .
