Die Cut Christmas Tags

Good Monday morning.  Today I’m sharing masculine and feminine die cut Christmas tags using several of the newly released dies by Rubbernecker Stamps

For the first tag I created a pretty outdoor wildlife scene using the Nested Tag set, 3 Pine TreesPine Tree Forest, Tree in Oval, Small Birds, Greenery and Wildlife Set.

Come check out how I made this masculine die cut Christmas tag.

The Tree Background and Tag Frame

  • Cut the tag using white cardstock.
  • Secure the tag in the MISTI and stamped the tree three times using Peeled Paint ink.
  • Apply Tumbled Glass to the sky area of the tag using an ink blending tool.
  • Cut the tag frame using the two largest dies and red cardstock.
  • Cut the tree portion of the Tree in Oval using green cardstock.
  • Cut the Pine Tree Forest using green cardstock.
  • Hand cut two snow sections using white cardstock and deckle scissors.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the red tag frame and attach the front snow layer and large tree.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the tag frame, attach the second snow layer and attach the whole frame section to the tag base.

The Buck, Birds and Greenery

  • Cut a set of greenery using green cardstock and use a tiny brush to apply white gesso to the tips and set aside to dry.
  • Cut the buck using white cardstock.
  • Color the buck using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink and mini applicators. Check out my coloring die cut animals tutorial if you would like to see how I apply the ink to the buck.
  • Cut a section of birds using red cardstock.
  • Cut three or four trees off the Pine Tree Forest and tuck it in behind the snow layer and attach with mounting tape.
  • Attach the buck in behind the first snow layer and attach to the base using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Attach pieces of white tipped greenery in behind the snow layer and around the buck and attach with glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching the birds using small pieces of mounting tape.

 

Come check out how I made this beautiful die cut Christmas tag.

For my second tag I used the Nested Tags, Poinsettia #2, Holly and Magic of Christmas980-11 Magic of Christmas.

The Tag Frames and Base

  • Cut a tag frame using red cardstock and the two largest tags in the set.
  • Cut a tag frame using red cardstock and the largest and middle sized tags in the set.
  • Cut the largest tag using white cardstock.
  • Secure the white tag in the MISTI , stamp the sentiment using gold embossing powder and heat with heat gun.
  • Apply double stick tape around the wider tag frame and attach it over the white tag layer.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the thinner tag and attach it over the matted tag layer.

The Poinsettia and Holly

  • Cut the poinsettia layers using red cardstock. I only used the three smaller of the four flowers.
  • Cut the second largest poinsettia two times using green cardstock.
  • Cut the tiny flowers using yellow cardstock.
  • Place the flower layers face down on the molding pad and form the petals using the large round stylus head.
  • Place the flower layers face up and push down in the centers using a smaller stylus head.
  • Attach the flower sections together using glossy accents.  Make sure to offset each one so no layers are laying directly over the other.
  • Attach the tiny yellow flower in the center of the poinsettia using glossy accents.
  • Cut two sections of holly using green cardstock and the berries using red cardstock.
  • Apply glossy accents to the berry bases and pick up the red berries using a jewel picker and attach to the base.
  • Attach the poinsettia to the tag base using glossy accents.
  • Gently form the holly leaves with your fingers and tuck them under the poinsettia and attach with glossy accents.
  • Apply sparkle to the poinsettia petals and holly berries using a clear overlay pen.
  • Apply yellow stickles to the tiny flower center.
  • Check out my poinsettia tutorial if you would like to see how I form my flowers.  I used a different set for the tutorial but the concept is the same.

Do You Like My New Format?

I would love to hear from you about how you like the bullet point tutorial format I have been using the last several weeks.  Is it helpful?  Did you like the paragraph format better?  I find the bullet point format easier for me to keep track of all the steps as I write my post.  But the main reason I share on my blog is to help inspire others.  I want the format I use to be the most helpful.  I would sure appreciate you sharing your opinion.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have enjoyed see my two die cut Christmas tags. I had lots of fun making them.

Spellbinders New Collections Blog Hop

September-Blog-Hop-Version-2-Blog-1080x1920I have a few projects to share with you today that I made for the Spellbinders New Collections Blog Hop.  There are several very talented designers sharing projects today using stamps and dies from the four new collections.  My projects were all made using dies from Becca Feeken’s A Charming Christmas collection. 

My first set of projects were made using the Shapeabilities Charming Round Tag.  The possibilities are endless with all the dies that come in this sweet set.  I especially love making tags with a country Christmas feel so I embellished mine with gingham bows and sprigs of evergreen.

Come check out my set of round tag made using the newly releaesed Spellbinders holiday set.

Mittens Tag

The tag was cut once in white and again in red.  I used one of the decorative insert dies to cut openings out of the top and bottom portion of the red die and then attached it over the white using double stick tape.  The mittens were attached together with glue dots and then attached to the top of the tag with glossy accents.  I attached a gold ornament topper and evergreen sprigs using glossy accents and then attached a multi loop gingham bow with glue dots to finish.

Come check out my round Mittens tag made using the newly releaesed Spellbinders holiday set.

Deer Tag

The tag was cut once in red and again in white.  used one of the decorative insert dies to cut openings out of the top and bottom portion of the white tag and then attached it over the red tag using double stick tape.  The deer charm was colored using mini applicators and Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks.  It was attached to the tag using pieces of mounting tape.  I attached a gold ornament topper and evergreen sprigs using glossy accents and then attached a multi loop gingham bow with glue dots to finish. 

Come check out my round Deer tag made using the newly releaesed Spellbinders holiday set.

Joy Tag

The tag was cut once in white and again in red.  I used one of the decorative insert dies and Joy sentiment insert die to cut openings out of the top and bottom portion of the red die and then attached it over the white using double stick tape.  I attached the gold ornament topper to the ornament using glossy accents.  The evergreen sprigs were attached to the center of the tag using glossy accents and then I finished it by attaching the bow using glue dots. 

Come check out my round Joy tag made using the newly releaesed Spellbinders holiday set.

The Angel Ornament Card

The Tallulah frame was cut in white and was attached to the red card base with pieces of mounting tape. I cut the two angel sections using white cardstock.  Both angel pieces have slits that allow them to fit together to create a dimensional ornament.  I secured the front angel wings to the back wings using small piece of mounting tape.  Next,  I applied pieces of mounting tape to the back of the angel ornament and attached it to the card base.  I ran a piece of gold metallic string through the angel topper and then attached it to the frame using glue dots.  I continued the country Christmas theme with the evergreen branches and multi loop bow to finish the angel card.

Come see how I made this elegant yet homey feeling angel ornament card from the new Spellbinders holiday release.

Die Cut Thank You Tag

I have a pretty die cut thank you tag to share with you today.  Before I start my project description I want to say how much I enjoyed working with Rubbernecker Stamps this past weekend at the Scrapbook Expo in Schaumburg, IL. and meeting so many paper crafters.  I was especially thrilled to meet Beverly Barton, one of my fellow friends from Splitcoaststampers.  

My project was made using Rubbernecker Nested Tag Stitch, Leaf Group, Pots With Scallops, Tiny Flower Buds, Flower Stems, Grass and Best Friends stamp set. 

Come see how I made this die cut thank you tag with lovely flower pots.

Die Cut Thank You Tag Background Layer

I began by cutting the largest tag die using white cardstock and then cut the small circular hole for the ribbon.  Next, I used a cloud template, ink blending tool and Tumbled Glass ink to create the soft cloudy background. I stamped the thank you sentiment on the background with VersaFine Onyx Black.

The Tag Frame and Grass

I used the two largest tag dies to cut the frame.  I lined the tags up in place on my magnetic platform to form the frame and cut.  I used double stick tape to attach two grass sections to the back of the frame.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the background layer.

Come see how I made this die cut thank you tag with dotted flower pots.

The Flower Pot Foliage

I cut the flower pots in the same blue card stock to match the frame.  I highlighted the scallop border on the pots by applying white Nuvo Crystal Drops and added a few polka dots to the pots to finish.  Once the crystal drops were totally dry I began arranging the foliage and flowers.  For the largest pot I cut a section of the Leaf Group and cut the branches apart.  I attached the smaller pieces of foliage to the back of the pots with glossy accents and then  worked my way back adding larger pieces of foliage to create height.  I cut several sections of flower stems to use in the smaller pots.  I attached the stems to the pots using glossy accents, starting with the trimmed off shorter sections and then adding taller stems behind them.

The Flowers

I cut the tiny flowers in pink and again in white.  I used my smallest tip stylus and molding pad to form all the flowers.  Next, I attached three flowers in a cluster formation on scrap cardstock using glossy accents.  Once the adhesive was dry and the buds were secure I cut around them to create my tiny cluster flowers.  I arranged the flowers on the foliage and attached with glossy accents.  I added the close up picture above to show the sparkle that I added using the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen.

Come see how I made this die cut thank you tag with pretty flower pots.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my die cut thank you tag.  It seems most of us think of making tags only for Christmas presents but they can also dress up a present for any occasion.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great week.

Die Cut Tag and Flower

My project today is a die cut tag and flower with a sentiment.  I think we tend to think that tags are just for Christmas presents but they can really be made for gifts of any occasion.  I think this feminine tag in pink, white and green would be perfect for a graduation, birthday or promotion.  Any occasion that you want to convey a best wishes message or any kind of sentiment that you wish.

Come see how I made this pretty and feminine die cut tag and flower perfect to attach to any gift.

The Tag

This tag was really fast and easy to make.  I cut the two largest sizes, secured the the white tag in my MISTI and stamped the sentiment using black Versafine ink.

The Flower and Foliage

I cut the flower sections and formed them using my stylus and molding pad.  I attached the layers together using glossy accents. Note that I cut the largest flower layer in green to create a foliage base for the flower.  I cut the foliage pieces and gently rolled the leaves with my fingers.

 

Come see how I made this pretty and feminine die cut tag and flower perfect to attach to a gift.

Assembling the Die Cut Tag and Flower

I attached the two tags together using ATG adhesive.  I attached the flower to the tag using glossy accents.  Then I tucked the foliage pieces under and around the flower an attached using glossy accents.  I added a pre made white Nuvo Crystal Drop to the center of the flower and added a pink knot of ribbon to the tag for the finishing touch. 

Thank you so much for coming by and I hope you have been inspired to pull out your die cut tag and flower dies and sentiment sets to create your own “Birthday Wish”, “Congratulations” or even a “Thinking of You” tag.
