Hey there! Christmas is coming and to get you in the spirit, Papertrey Ink has brand new products to help make gift-giving fun and easy. These will all be available on October 15th, 10pm EST. My first project uses the new Canned stamp set and coordinating dies. Such a brilliant concept and one I am very fond of as I love gifts in a jar.
Sierra and I recently went apple picking at her Great Grandparent's house and I was able to put up bunches of apples and make jars and jars of of apple pie filling. I've wrapped one up to share as a holiday gift. I stamped my Canned gift tag using images from the stamp set as well as the new Merry Kiss-mass stamp set. My favorite thing about this die?? The slots for the tiny, wooden spoon :). Who can resist that? I used Ripe Avocado, Autumn Rose, and Scarlet Jewel for my color scheme.
I die cut the label out of gold paper and embossed it using Espresso embossing powder. I then layered a stamped gingham banner, also from the Canned stamp set, and a stamped Double Ended Banner, with a sentiment from Merry Kiss-mas.
I embellished my jar and tag using Simply Chartreuse felt, the Holly Jolly die, and Scarlet Jewel buttons. Simple, inexpensive, and straight from the heart and home.
My next project uses the new Cross Stitched Alphabet dies and stamp set. My homemade gift is wrapped up in a large Papertrey Ink glassine bag. I wrapped a strip of patterned paper around my bag and embellished it with a tag that coordinates with the gift inside.
My tag uses the Tag Sale #2 as the base and is topped with the Tag Sale #10 die cut from patterned paper and Vintage Cream cardstock. The center of my tag is stamped with the new Cross Stitched stamp set.
Inside is a handmade banner I created using the oh, so sweet, Cross Stitched Alphabet dies. I adore them and already love all of the things they'll create. I used Vintage Cream and Spring Moss felt, the Tag Sale #10 die once again, along with the Tag Sale #5 die for the side pendants.
I mixed in patterned paper, polka dots, stripes, and florals to create a soft and shabby banner for the holidays. Mixing and matching patterns is one of my most favorite things to do as I create for Christmas and any occasion.
My "O" is stitched on a Vintage Cream felt die cut using the Limitless Layers: 2 1/2" Circles die, and is embellished with more Holly Jolly die cut felt leaves and the new Seasonal Stitching: Holly dies. LOVE these. Your craft room would be very happy to have these little babies :).
I loved creating this :).
My last item to share is non-holiday, but can certainly be used for Christmas treats, or anything small and sweet for that matter. I love small packages...something about those tiny boxes that always make me happy when they happen to be presented to me :). My lovely, niece Makenna is getting married...that's her and her sweetheart in the photo. They are beautiful! She's my first niece to be married, and she's found herself a boy from Australia to love forever. I'm so happy for them. So, with weddings on my mind, after cutting out my new Vintage Favor It Box, I knew I had to dress it up for a wedding. It's just the perfect size.
This box comes together like magic. So simple to assemble, and when you add stamping, from the Just a Little Something stamp set, it comes to life. I embossed my sides and top with gold embossing powder to fit in with the elegant, wedding theme.
I layered die cuts on top using dies from the Just a Little Something die collection and added a Vintage Cream felt flower cut from the Songbirds die. Just a few sequins and some sheer ribbon, and my little favor was complete.
