CTC202 – Favourite Tags

ctc_header

I am so excited!!!  On Thursday, I head off to Orlando to attend the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event, celebrating 30 years of Stampin’ Up!  I can’t wait to be there with 7000 plus demonstrators (I can’t imagine what that’s going to be like!)  I’m meeting fellow CTC Crew member Bronwyn and one of my sister demos, Sandra, in LA and then we are flying together to Orlando.  We then have a few days of shopping (craft shops, here we come!!) and visiting Walt Disney World and Universal Studios.

Before Onstage starts, we will be joined by fellow CTC Crew members Kathyrn, Rachel and Judy and her friend, Tina.

I’m excited to be attending Centrestage in Orlando.  This year, we are being treated to an afternoon at Epcot!  The Food and Wine Festival will be on whilst we are there, so I’m excited to try out some of the different foods available.

But before I head to Orlando, we’ve still got this week’s challenge to share with you!  We are casing our Favourite Holiday tags from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

It’s surprising how many tags are in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  I decided to case one of the tags on page 12.  I based it on the small tag on the left of the pic but I took inspiration from the card at the top right of the pic in the tin.

I like the use of the banners on the card so I chose my favourite dsp, Joyous Noel and cut out the banners using the Bunch of Banner framelits.  As the dsp has hints of copper, I cut one banner from the copper sheet from the Joyous Noel glimmer paper.

My sentiment is from the Peaceful Noel stamp set in Tranquil Tide.

As my tag is going to be a card and therefore a bit larger than the tag, I decided to place the banners onto a piece of cardstock.  I like the Corrugated embossed piece on the top card, so I borrowed that idea to place the banners on.

I really love the clean lines of this card!!  And you could reproduce it using any gorgeous dsp.

Next up is my lovely friend, Rose.

CTC153 – Case a Holiday Catalogue Tag

It’s been another lovely week in Queensland!  Summer is definitely coming quickly!

We are casing Tags from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue this week.

As I was flipping through the catalogue, I realised how many tags are actually in there!  So many!  I actually ended up not casing a tag but casing another project and turning it into a tag.  I cased the Stocking and pillow box on page 15.

I love the snowflake included in this set so I had to use that!  I created the base of the tags using the pillow box die and cut it by hand to the score lines.  I used the lovely Merry Music Specialty DSP as the base for the wreath tag.  I then stamped out the holly leaves from the Tags and Trimmings stamp set on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and Wild Wasabi cardstock.  I cut them out using the dies and laid them in a circle to see how they fit.  Once I was happy with the layout, I then attached them using a glue dot under the end of leaf.

I then inked up just a part of the Celebrate the season stamp with versamark and did some white embossing on the black cardstock.  I used the banner triple punch to cut the ends of the banner and used a dimensional to attach it.  To create the holly leaves, I cut the trimming die in Cherry Cobbler and just carefully cut the balls off.  I used the white chalk pen and then some Wink of Stella for a bit of bling.   A small piece of gold ribbon and voila, all done!

I used a second base of the pillow box die as before, and stamped it with the snowflake stamp in Crumb Cake.

I then stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock.  The “inside” words weren’t quite as solid as I would have like, so I used my black marker to go over the stamping.  I added a piece of Real Red ribbon to the top and bottom of the sentiment piece and used it to create the hanger as well.

I then cut out the snowflake from a piece of Dazzling Diamonds and the Pear Pizzazz button.

 

I hope you like my tags today.  Make sure you come and join in with the challenge at our facebook group.
