Making Tags with the Gift Card Envelopes & Trims Thinlits

Yesterday I posted boxes I made with the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits.  Included in this set are dies to make an envelope as well as pieces to make tags.  My boxes used the envelope as the top of my box.  Today I’m highlighting the tags!

I used the piece below to make my tags and it’s really easy to get a variety of looks!

To achieve the look above, I cut the tag out with Very Vanilla cardstock AND the Moroccan Designer Series Paper.

Then,  I cut the DSP. There’s no right or wrong way to do this. 

Next,  I glued the DSP to the Very Vanilla Cardstock. You can stamp a sentiment as I did or write your own.

Here are a few other ways to decorate the tag without using Designer Series Paper.

The stamp set, B.Y.O.P.  in the Annual Catalog  coordinates with these Thinlits and many of the sentiments will fit inside the tags!  This gives you lots of options!

Happy Monday!  I haven’t been able to post to my blog (or create in my stamp room) in the last few days as I’ve been babysitting my granddaughter. There just aren’t enough hours in the day, or energy, to get everything done.  But, this morning I was able to sit at my craft table for a few minutes.  I needed a few cards to send out today and these were very quick and easy to create.

As I have mentioned before, I love the gorgeous Painted Blooms Designer Series paper.  It is so pretty that I’ve been hesitant to cut it up, which is somewhat silly.  Fellow demo, Patty Bennett, suggested cutting it up to make six individual cards.  What a great idea!

Here are two cards I made this morning!


thanks so much

After cutting the DSP and adhering it to my Blackberry Bliss cardstock, I just needed to add a sentiment.  E-a-s-y!  Once I punched out my sentiment I did sponge some color around it for some dimension.

I will be back tomorrow with the Weekly Deals and hopefully later this week with more cards from this one sheet of paper!

Have a great day!
