Christmas Bottle Gift Tags

Bottles of bubbly make great gifts for Christmas.  But don't stop at wine-options, what about a lovely savoury or dessert sauce, marinade or vinaigrette?  These are great to give as Christmas presents and look amazing dressed up with a gift tag.  Here's a Christmas bottle tag I created using the fabulous Year of Cheer suite; it's hanging on a bottle of lovely Black Raspberry Vinaigrette...

Cheers to the Year Christmas Bottle Tag

Stamps: Cheers to the Year (wood: 144925, clear: 144928).  Ink: Whisper White Craft Stampin' Pad (145406).  Card/Paper: Whisper White Thick (140490), Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (144640), Silver Foil (132178), Gold Foil (132622).  Accessories: Year of Cheer Embellishments (144643), Silver 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon (144213), Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine (124262), Silver Metallic Thread (138402), White Stampin' Emboss Powder (109132), Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder (109131).  Tools: 1-3/4" Circle Punch (119850), 2" Circle Punch (133782), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).

Oh, Hello Birdie!

Color Me Happy Thank You

Inspired by the Thank You Card in the Color Me Happy Project Kit, I created these two Thank You cards using the Color Me Happy stamp set, Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, with coordinating Stampin' Blends Markers.  The designer paper dictated the colour choices, this one is in Daffodil Delight and Old Olive with a touch of Rich Razzleberry...

Color Me Happy Thank You Card

Stamps: Color Me Happy (wood: 144062, clear: 144069).  Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad (132708).  Markers: Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin' Blend (144585), Old Olive Dark Stampin' Blend (144573), Rich Razzleberry Dark & Light Stampin' Blends (combo: 144602).  Card/Paper: Whisper White Thick (140490), Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (144137).  Tools: Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Magnetic Platform (130658), Stitched Shapes Framelits (145372), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).

And this one is in Calypso Coral and Old Olive with a touch of Daffodil Delight...

Color Me Happy Thank You Card

Stamps: Color Me Happy (wood: 144062, clear: 144069).  Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad (132708).  Markers: Calypso Coral Light Stampin' Blend (144042), Old Olive Dark Stampin' Blend (144573), Daffodil Delight Dark & Light Stampin' Blends (combo: 144603).  Card/Paper: Whisper White Thick (140490), Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (144137).  Tools: Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Magnetic Platform (130658), Stitched Shapes Framelits (145372), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).

The "Thank You" stamp image from the Color Me Happy stamp set is simple to colour and the colour glided on so easy with the Stampin' Blends Markers, with a lovely smooth finish.  However, if you enjoy other colouring mediums, then the Color Me Happy stamp set would be a great addition to your collection too.

Whilst the Stampin' Blends Markers are here to stay and will be in future catalogues, the beautiful Color Me Happy stamp set is only available while stocks last.

I am a stay-at-home mum with three kids and a wonderfully supportive husband.  I love craft, but stamping and card making is my passion.  I also enjoy extending card-making and stamping techniques to create 3-D projects and gifts. 

I was introduced to Stampin' Up! a few years ago and I quickly fell in love with their high-quality, coordinating products and, soon after, became an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  I now hold regular workshops in my home focusing on the fabulous papercraft products Stampin' Up! has to offer. 

I enjoy sharing what I know with others and inspiring their stamping creativity.
