Gift tag/ornament in one {Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studios}

Hi, there. It’s been kind of quiet here lately, I’ve been busy at work and I also prioritized getting my international holiday cards out in the mail. I still have the domestic ones to go, but there’s still time to send those, so I’m not too worried. I created this fun gift tag/ornament for my sister and her husband for Christmas, featuring the brand new Gingerbread Couple from Rachelle Anne Miller.

I colored the gingerbread cookies with my Copics and used a circle die to turn it into a circle. I die cut another circle from patterned paper from Papirdesign and used a die from the Glassic Snow Globe die set from My Favorite Things to cut a window from the same piece. I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from Norsk Stempelblad AS below the window and added a shaker pouch from My Favorite Things that I filled with the Icicle Sequin mix from Hero Arts.

I die cut another circle from the same patterned paper that I used on the front and white heat embossed a to/from stamp from Norsk Stempelblad AS in the center. After adhering all the pieces together, I cut a hole at the top, reinforcing it with an eyelet before pulling string through. This shaker gift tag can definitely be used as an ornament too, and I’m hoping that’s what will happen.

Simple image and simple colors for this one.

Hello there {Mo’s Digital Pencil}

Hi there! Today’s card actually features an image called Hi there. This is a very simple image, and I should have been able to color it super quickly, but coloring the mint green around the white of the paper to leave the flowers white took a while. It might have something to do with the fact that I was watching the semi-final, then the first two parts of the finale of MasterChef Australia while coloring, but I won’t mention that.

Mo Manning Hi there front rett

I used mostly light colors for my coloring on this card, and die cut the colored panel using a die from the A2 Stitched Rectangles STAX 1 set from My Favorite Things and adhered it onto a top fold card base made from Mint Julep card stock from Papertrey Ink. It’s a pretty small card measuring in just shy of 4 Bar dimensions at 3 1/2 x 4 3/4″. I added my “typical Elin cluster” in the top right corner using scraps of paper doilies from Doodlebug Design and scraps of patterned paper from various companies (Maja Design, Papirdesign, Diecuts with a view and Making Memories are represented here) die cut using dies from My Favorite Things and XCut.

Mo Manning Hi there front skrått

I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Basics stamp set from My Favorite Things onto Smokey Shadow card stock from Papertrey Ink, before using one of the Itty Bitty Strips dies from MFT to die cut it. I added it on top of my cluster with a little bit of dimension behind it, before finishing off with a few enamel dots from Altenew. I added an even smaller cluster using similar elements in the opposite corner.

Mo Manning Hi there Copics

Not a lot of Copics, that’s bound to happen with a pale color palette.

Santa hug {Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studios}

Hi, everyone, and Merry Christmas! I have another gift tag to share today, the last for 2020. It features the adorable Koala Christmas image from Rachelle Anne Miller and was attached to a present for one of my nieces. I thought these koalas decorating a tree of their own was such a cute one.

I stamped a sentiment from Norsk Stempelblad AS below the image using Scarlet Jewel ink from Papertrey Ink. Using a faux stitch tag die from My Favorite Things, I die cut four tags, one from the panel with the image and three from scraps of patterned paper from the Fröjdefull Jul collection from Maja Design. I glued two and two back to back, before gluing the two double tags together, offset quite a bit.

On the back, I used another stamp from Norsk Stempelblad AS and the same color ink as I used for the front.

I punched a hole through the top of the tag, added a red eyelet for strength, pulled some twine through and also added a snowflake charm to finish.

Simple image means I didn’t use a lot of colors for this one.

Simple gift tag {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi, everyone! I’m ready for Christmas tomorrow. There, I said it, no backsies. This little Shop Tot gift tag is also ready for Christmas tomorrow, and it’s attached to a present going to one of my nieces.

I colored the image with Copics, die cut it using a large faux stitch tag die from My Favorite Things and stamped a sentiment from Norsk Stempelblad AS on the bottom using Scarlet Jewel ink from Papertrey Ink. I created three more tag die cuts from the Fröjdefull Jul collection from Maja Design and glued one of them to the back of my colored panel. I glued the other two back to back and glued my two double tags together, slightly offset. I cut a hole at the top of the tag, used a red eyelet for strength and threaded some red twine through, adding a charm with mittens for that little bit extra.

On the back of the tag I stamped a To/From stamp from Norsk Stempelblad AS using Smokey Shadow ink from Papertrey Ink, which is a nice dark gray. I attached a couple of loops I made from one of the patterned papers and was able to thread a candy cane through, I just hope the dog doesn’t get into the presents and eats the candy cane.

Very limited color palette for this one, not a whole lot to color.

Large gift tag {Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studios}

Hi, everyone! Are you on track for everything that needs to get done before Christmas? I kind of feel like I am, I have three more gifts to wrap and create gift tags for, and I need to do some grocery shopping, but everything else is finished, so I’m ready for Christmas Eve to come around and the festivities to begin.

I created this gift tag for my niece. It’s quite a big tag, its diameter is about 5″. The white circle panel isn’t just a panel, it’s dry embossed using an embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers. Unfortunately, dry embossing doesn’t show up very well in photos, and even less so when you’ve used white cardstock. It’s there in real life, though, and it provides a little bit of texture. I colored and die the Christmas Baking image from Rachelle Anne Miller, and popped it up on foam tape in the center of the white panel, before creating a hole at the top, adding an eyelet for strength. Through the hole I thread some cherry red divine twine and a tiny little cookie cutter embellishment, I thought it fit the image well.

On the back I added another diecut circle that I’d already added a To/From stamp to, using Scarlet Jewel ink from Papertrey Ink. I cut a slit above and below that to feed the candy cane to, and double up on the foam tape when I glued it to the larger circle.

Quite a few Copics for this one, and I used B90, which is a color I’ve created myself, on the background.

Winter Present gift tag {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi, everyone! I’ve got a gift tag to share today, featuring Winter Present from Mo Manning. It’s such an easy image to color, and for this one I went with blue. A lot of blue. I’ll let you in on a little secret: the blues were already out on my desk after my last project, making them so convenient to reach for and use.

I colored in my image using Copics and used a stitched tag die from My Favorite Things to turn it into a tag. I die cut another tag from a scrap piece of patterned paper from last year’s Christmas collection from Maja Design and glued the two together, offset a little bit for the patterned paper one to show. I added a tiny bit of a scrap of a doily to the bottom right corner of my colored tag and a white heat embossed sentiment on top using 1 mm foam squares. I punched a hole near the top, added an eyelet and used some Blueberry Twine from Whisker Graphics that I threaded through the hole.

On the back I used a to/from stamp from Norsk Stempelblad AS that I white heat embossed on blue cardstock from Maja Design. I used my cut align tool to make sure I had an even 1/16″ border around the stamped image. I love that tool, it’s the best thing ever.

Lots of blues used for this one. Another one, too, actually, I’ve made myself a B90 that I also used. What can I say, I love those blues!

Hipp hurra {Papirdesign}

Hei og hopp. I dag har jeg et lite brettekort å vise frem, laget til en sprek 80-åring og gitt bort sammen med en vase og en diger blomsterbukett. Selve brettemalen har jeg vist frem her på bloggen tidligere, og den står også i årets aprilnummer av Ett trykk.

Når kortet er lukket ser det ganske lite ut, det måler i underkant av 4×4″. Jeg har pyntet veldig enkelt med blomster og erstattet midten av de rosa blomstene med perler. Teksten har jeg embosset i hvitt.

Når kortet lukkes opp vises det at det ikke er så lite likevel. Flere paneler med plass til litt relativt flat pynt og litt tekst. Jeg har brukt et ark fra Fremtidsdrømmer-serien som kom tidligere i år, jeg syns disse arkene har så fine farger.

Jeg stanset ut Hipp hurra-ovalen to ganger, en gang i hvit kartong og en gang i mønsterarket. Jeg la bokstavene stanset ut av mønsterarket inni kartongovalen som puslespillbrikker.

På to av panelene inni har jeg stemplet tekster. Begge tekstene er stemplet med blekk fra Papertrey Ink som passet fint til resten av kortet. Noen sommerfugler fant jeg også ut at jeg ville stemple på, de passer veldig fint til sommerfuglene jeg har punchet ut og limt på finérsommerfuglene jeg ellers har pyntet med.

Høyresiden av kortet er en lomme med en tag med plass til en liten hilsen. Jeg har stemplet de samme sommerfuglene også her.

Blomster og vin {Ett trykk}

Hei og hopp! I aprilnummeret av Ett trykk hadde vi en artikkel med tema blomster og vin. For en måned siden viste jeg det første kortet mitt til artikkelen, her kommer enda et kort og også en vinskjuler.

Jeg bestemte meg for at jeg skulle lage disse som et sett, så de matcher. Jeg har brukt mønsterark fra Vintage Summer Basics-serien til Maja Design på begge to, samme stempelpute og også en del av pynten er lik. I hver spiss på vinskjuleren har jeg satt en malje fra Making Memories for å forsterke hullene som tråden skal gjennom. På rammen har jeg limt 2mm perler fra Kort & Godt tett i tett rundt hele ringen for å pynte opp litt ekstra.

Kortet har jeg laget litt lag på lag. Jeg har brukt den samme rammen her som på vinskjuleren, og stemplet en tekst fra Norsk Stempelblad AS med Papertrey Ink Autumn Rose blekk rett på det ene mønsterarket. Jeg har pyntet enkelt med blomster og en perlestreng og lagt en tynn blonde bak som en slags ekstra ramme.

Jeg har laget hovedfokuset på kortet som en shakerboks, med glassperler inni. Disse perlene er kjempegamle, min bestemor kjøpte dem på bokhandelen på Åndalsnes en gang på åttitallet, men de matcher jo mønsterarket HELT perfekt.

Julebukk {Papirdesign}

Hei og hopp! Håper du har en fin tirsdag. Her i Oslo snør det store filler, og de snør nesten vannrett, så det beste er å holde seg innendørs. Man får nesten litt julestemning av det hele, og jeg har faktisk en pakkelapp å vise frem i dag, så det passer jo bra.

Jeg stemplet en julebukk med Papertrey Ink Classic Kraft blekk og farlela med Copics før jeg klippet ham ut og satte på pakkelappen min. Pakkelappen min er ikke veldig innviklet, men skal man lage pakkelapper til alle årets julegaver må man gjøre det litt enkelt.

Jeg har brukt det samme oppsettet på baksiden av pakkelappen. Diecut og Til/Fra-stempel, stort enklere kan det ikke bli. Nå mangler bare å pakke inn gaven og henge på lappen.

Pakkelapp {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hei og hopp! Det er onsdag, og det betyr EN ting – Mo Manning-prosjekt her i gården. Denne gangen har jeg en enkel pakkelapp, laget med Carrying the Wood.

Hi everyone. It’s Wednesday, which means ONE thing – a new Mo Manning project around here. This time I’ve got a simple gift tag, featuring Carrying the Wood

Som vanlig er motivet fargelagt med Copics. Jeg har stanset det ut med en die fra Rayher og brukt et mønsterark fra Papirdesign bak, også stanset ut med en Rayher-die.

As usual I’ve colored my image with Copics. I used a Rayher die to diecut it into a banner shape, and a larger die from the same die set on a piece of Papirdesign patterned paper. 

Jeg har stemplet en tekst fra Norsk Stempelblad AS med blått blekk fra Papertrey Ink og stanset ut med en 1″ sirkelpunch fra EK Success. I enden satte jeg en malje og blå twine til å knyte fast i pakken. Og det er faktisk det hele.

Using Papertrey Ink Enchanted Evening ink I stamped a Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment, punching it out with a 1″ circle punch. On one end of the tag I added an eyelet and a string of blue twine to add the tag to the gift. And that’s it.
