As crafters, we often talk about a hand-crafted Christmas. How much stamping do you do for the holidays? Do you mail hand-stamped cards, make gift packaging, tags, handmade gifts? Or do you stamp year-round, but not so much for Christmas? Please show us some handmade tags and share a tip or two on how to keep stamping fun for the holidays.
I have to be honest, I'm a GIANT procrastinator, so when I do sit down to do some Holiday stamping and papercrafting, I need to whip up something cute and quick. I've tried and tried to break my horrible habit of waiting until the last minute to work on things, but I've failed every time. I was not born with the Type A gene.
I made a set of quick and easy tags for all of you Type B people out there. I hope I'm in good company, right? Of course the Type A's can play along too, haha! These tags are super easy to mass produce since you can run all the dies through your die cutting machine all at once. I used the new Label Stacklets 3 dies for the base of the tag and paired it up with the Frame It Up 1 die. I stepped it up a notch here and ran smaller die cut back through my machine with the Swiss Dots embossing folder from Provo Craft. I layered a Make a Snowflake die on a navy Layered Doily Small die cut and then added a Silver Rhinestone in the center. I also added some White Opal Liquid Pearls around the edge of the doily.
I added a sentiment from Sparkle & Cheer and stamped it on a Fly Your Flag 2 Die in Choice Snow White card stock.
