Here in northeast Missouri we can definitely say that Fall has arrived and our season has changed! Looking around the yard you see the change – leaves are changing colors and falling, and right now I have a driveway covered in acorns from a pin oak tree. If the amount of acorns is any indication as to the winter we are heading towards, buckle up! My car sounds like a microwaving popcorn bag as I drive over the acorns leaving and arriving home! And they continue to fall!
Evergreen Elegance and Heartwarming Hugs DSP Continues!
What’s not changing this week though is my product focus. There are still so many possibilities with the Evergreen Elegance bundle and Heartwarming Hugs DSP from Stampin Up, and we start the week with hinged Christmas Tags!
Placement of the Die is Key for the Hinge!
To create these cute Christmas Tags I started with a solid piece that has a “hinged” look. It is all in the placement of laying the scallop die on top of a folded piece of card stock, with a section of the circle overhanging the fold as in the picture below:
The Creative Fun Begins!
After running the tag base, I began layering on circles and dies! The pretty scalloped DSP shapes are from the Hippo and Friends Dies. For the label on top I used both dies from the Tasteful Labels set as well as punched images! Use what you have and create a variety of unique tag fronts!
I used stamped images from Peaceful Deer as well as the To/From in the Festive and Bright stamp sets. Look through your stamp collection for small images/greetings to fit the labels and punches. And even if the image is too large such as the tree in the above picture, it’s all in the placement! By stamping just the top of the tree multiple times it gives the appearance of a forest!
