Marbled gift tag

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka

I used a scrap piece of Little Lime Twist cardstock and some heart shapes that are left over from previous projects to make this gift tag.

I used the new background stamp set ‘Marbled’ on the Little Lime Twist scrap piece – it looks lovely and I like it a lot. I added a bow, die cut using black cardstock and ‘Everyday Jar’ framelits dies at top of tag and a message ‘love ya!’ from the new stamp set ‘Text Ya Later’ on a tiny little white banner.

Little cat gift tags

By Bussakorn Mpelasoka

A few days ago I saw on the internet a cute cat which looked like either post-it note or journaling card and thought that was cute. This morning I had time to craft so I tried making a few gift tags that look a bit like the cat I saw.

I love using stamps to create background or pattern papers. A few stamp sets in Stampin’ Up! current Occasional Catalogue and the recent sale-a-bration have stamps that I think are good for this purpose. I used a stamp from ‘Sheltering Tree’ on the body of the white cat, from ‘Painted Petals’ for the Vanilla cat and from sale-a-bration ‘Best Day Ever’ for the pink cat. I added a bow (made using Stampin’ Up! ‘Bow Builder’ punch) to each cat.

I chose the Vanilla one with googly eyes for Lynn. I just came back from visiting her, we had a lovely time catching up and had afternoon tea/coffee together. On the way back home it just came into my mind that Lynn is a dog (not a cat) person, a cat gift tag was an awful choice for her. It is too late now and I hope the cat is cute enough that even a dog person wouldn’t mind having it.

Tags – as mini pocket album inserts

By Bussakorn Mpelasoka

I have been making a few tags from scrap paper lying around in my craft room. Some of them will be used as traditional gift tags. But I plan to use some of them as mini pocket album inserts.

Tag 1 – I used the fern stamp from Stampin’ Up! ‘Butterfly Basics’ stamp set and the message ‘I love you’ is from Mama Elephant ‘In my Heart’.

Mini pocket album 9

Tag 2 – I used the sentiment stamp from Stampin Up! ‘Painted Petals’, butterflies thinlits dies and ‘Best Year Ever’ DSP. The butterfly is actually in wax paper that I used to make it easy to remove the cardstock butterfly from the framelit. It is too pretty to be thrown away, so I used it here.

Tag - butterfly

When life gives you lemon

By Bussakorn Mpelasoka

I used the lemon stamp from Stampin’ Up! sale-a-bration ‘A Happy Thing’ stamp set for this tag. The old saying used as a message on the tag is quite long for the little space. It will probably take some time to spell it out using alphabet stamps too. So I decided to write it by hand on vellum.

Tag - a happy thing

Stencil roses – gift tags

By Bussakorn Mpelasoka

I used a rose laser cut card which comes with Stampin’ Up! ‘Artisan embellishment kit’ as a stencil template to make these two tags. I got this stencil idea from Brian King, a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and a king of craft!

On one tag I used Brushing Bride, Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral for the roses and add scallop edge and some washi tapes.

Mini pocket album 10

On the other tag, I used Soft Sky, Pool Party and Marina Mist for the roses, glued on three sides on the tag base to make a pocket for a little message tag. The message is from Mama Elephant ‘In My Heart’ stamp set.

Tag - blue roses

Hello Love – gift tags

By Bussakorn Mpelasoka

I will spend most of this weekend sewing, but I still have a few paper craft projects in stock to share. The three tags here are so…so simple and fun to make and need only scrap pieces of cardstock left over from other projects.

Hello love tag 1

I used Stampin’ Up! ‘Nuts About You’ hostess set for the grass and ‘Hello Love’, another hostess set, for everything else. I think all stamps in ‘Hello Love’ are very cute. I made all three tags the same except changing the colours.
