Taylored Expressions is hosting a Holiday Hoopla today and I’m excited to be a part of it. You should have arrived here from Sankari‘s blog. If you didn’t (or if you get lost along the way) you can head back to the beginning at Taylor’s blog for the full list of participants. There are 22 designers showcasing Christmas/Winter/Holiday stamps sets from TE with samples that include all sorts of projects from cards to gifts and beyond! We want to inspire you to get your holiday crafting and card making into high gear! Be sure to stick with me all the way to the end of the post to get a coupon code for 25% off holiday stamp sets at Taylored Expressions!
The set I’m showcasing is Tag You’re It. It’s great to create fast Christmas gift tags.
For my sample I wanted to show a quick and easy gift idea with Taylor’s Tag You’re Are It! stamp set. I stamped the Penguin tag in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was cut out and colored with Copic Markers (YG61, YG63, R08, R27, R29, YR15).
A sour cream container was created with a 4 1/2″ x 5″ piece of Bo Bunny Blitzen paper. A bow was tied with gingham ribbon with the help of the Bow-Easy. Curling Ribbon was used to tie the tag to the bow and the bow to the container.
Here is a video on how to create a sour cream container for the visual learner:
Creating for this hop caused to me to go back and look at some of my previous creations and I wanted to share one of those with you today too. You can find it here.
