Mason Jars and Mittens Shaker Tags

We’re dedicating today’s showcase to Gift Tags!! Who doesn’t love to receive heart warming handmade gift tag along with their present?! And creating them can also be just as fun!

I used a bunch of different colors heavyweight cardstocks from our Spectrum Collection for these tags. These cardstocks range from soothing pastels for every occasion, to bright vibrant colors which are great for holiday projects!

25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Hello and welcome back to our blog! Today we are super excited to participate in Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event for the very first time! Be sure to visit Tracey’s blog In My Creative Opinion for wonderful Christmas tag inspiration from our Penguin Palace Creative Team!

Today I’ve created for you a pair of X’mas tags with products from our earlier releases.

I first die cut two tags with our Snow White – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock. It’s a bit hard to see from the photos but this unique cardstock has subtle watermarks in shapes of little raindrops.

Then I spread some Gina K Glitz Gel in Red Velvet and Turquoise Sea on the Crystal Snowflakes – Penguin Perfect Patterns 6″ stencil to give each of the tags the shimmery snowflakes.

All of the adorable images are from the Cuddly Sheep’s Season’s Greetings stamp set. These images were stamped in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink, colored with Copics and die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

Then I added two sentiments from the same stamp set. I stamped “Season’s Greetings” using Simon Hurley’s dye ink Remember Me, and “Happy Holidays” in Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink. I thought these colors went well with the backgrounds.

To complete the tags, I used some matching colors trimming and added some sparkly gems!

I hope you enjoy today’s little project.

Don’t forget to visit Tracey’s blog today for lots more beautiful tag inspiration! Thank you so much Tracey for another fun 25 Days of Christmas Tags event!


Create 4 Mini-Projects with One Large Canvas!

Hi guys! Today I have a new video up on our YouTube Channel, showing how you can use a single large canvas, to create 4 different projects!

These four projects were created using our Stencils 360°TM combined with the Sacred Lotus Stencil and the Mega Summer Blossom Stencil.

Blending multi-colors on a single stencil has never been easier! These bold patterns were created without the need for masking and in just a matter of minutes!

Why not experiment with what you can do with one large canvas instead of working with just the standard size cards? The possibilities are endless!

Watch my video below or over on our YouTube Channel and give it a LIKE!

I hope you like this inspiration, thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
