JAI 340 Just add gift tags & treat box

It's time for a new Just Add Ink challenge & this week Jan wants us to Just Add Gift Tags. A very timely challenge, since December is whizzing its way to Christmas & I'm fully in present mode. This post needs to be as quick as my project was to make, so here's what I made.


Let's talk tags first - I cut the basic tag from the largest of the Cheerful Tags dies. I cut 2 - one in white & one mint macaron - then glued them together & folded. I stamped the front with a fave 'Making Spirits Bright' sentiment from the Tin of Tags stamp set in real red (bet you can't stop singing Jingle Bells now) & 'With Love' on the inside in emerald envy.


I added a twist of fun with a punched Santa hat cut with the Jolly Hat builder punch (sadly retiring so get it now!) in real red card & dazzling diamonds glimmer paper. Super quick & easy & a fun addition to any punch art critter.


The box couldn't be quicker or easier to make - Just fold up a Clear Tiny Treat box, add a paper belly band (Presents & Pinecones dsp - also retiring & on sale). Finish off with some ribbon & a tag. I filled the boxes with Christmas Hershey's Kisses (found at Costco). You get 16 boxes in the Clear Tiny Treat Box pack for just $13.25. They're 5cm squares (or 2 inches), which surprisingly fits quite a lot.


So that's it for me for now. I hope my tag & treat box gives you some ideas for quick Christmas gifts. Check my supply list below for everything I used & to order through my store.

Lots more Christmas coming to share, so pop back again soon.

Inky wishes, Di

JAI 339 sketch challenge - Santa's Sleigh



It's sketch challenge time at Just Add Ink & this time we're using this fun & flexible sketch created by Narelle.


I stretched the sketch out to a square to make this Christmas scene, using the fab Santa's Sleigh stamp & die bundle. A fave from the Holiday Catalogue, that happily will be carrying over when the catalogue ends (although not as a discounted bundle after 3 January).


I started off by building the sketch elements using 2 printed papers from the Candy Cane Lane paper pack, & some dazzling diamonds glimmer paper, then created my little scene with the Santa's Sleigh coordinated stamps & dies. I can't resist a cute reindeer & the sleigh is so beautifully detailed whether stamped as I did here or layered with the detailed sleigh overlay die (like I did on this card).

Stamping! I stamped the trees in old olive ink on pear pizzazz card, sleigh in real red ink on real red card, and reindeer in soft suede ink on kraft card. I love that the stamps give lots of lovely detail to the die cuts. Then I popped each of the elements on dimensions to give more shape.
I added a bannered sentiment from the Stitched With Cheer stamp set (retiring sadly) & cut it with the Bunch of Banners die set. Love these for different shaped banners... & you know I love a banner.


Thanks for visiting today & I hope you like how I used the sketch. Now head over to the Just Add Ink blog to see all the team's challenge projects & to try the sketch yourself. You can see & order the supplies I used below too.

I have more Santa's Sleigh projects to share, including a fun adaption of this card I think you'll like, so pop back again soon.

Inky wishes,
Di

Big birthday no-cut patterned paper folder

Early this year (ok, March) I ran a fun class based on those big events that generally include a number of some sort, like special birthdays, anniversaries etc.  Anyway I was looking for the project post & realised that I hadn't shared them - oops!

So, with no further delay, here's the first project we made - another of my fave no-cut patterned paper folders.


I decorated this one with a die cuts from the Lots of Labels die set & Number of Years stamps & Large Numbers dies (20% off until November 28th), which I heat embossed in silver.

Haven't seen my folders before? It's made simply by folding a 12x12 inch sheet of double sided patterned paper origami style - no cutting or gluing. I've been making these a long time & they're still a fave of mine & my class lovelies.



  
For this class version everyone chose their own paper sheet from the It's My Party paper pack (now retired), which resulted in lots of individual & fabulous folders. I've shared these at the bottom of this post.
Great news! - It's My Party is currently on the SU Clearance Rack for the small sum of $18.10 for 48 fab sheets of 12x12 inch paper, only while stocks last of course.

Anyway, back to the folder; the cards can be slipped out or adhered to the inside. I slipped them into this card. The left panel includes a pocket to slip in a gift card, ticket or other item. I normally write a message on the right side panel.


This is how it looks flat from the front.


Here's one more combined pic for you to pin for later iinspiration. Make sure you  check out the no-cut patterned paper tutorial pdf download in this post too.



Folders made by my class lovelies
 Everyone picked their own papers to suit the person & occasion they wanted & they did a great job.


Last Confession - Tip
I cut up my 'It's time to celebrate with cake' stamp in the Party With Cake stamp set as I thought I'd use it much more that way. And I have! Since it's a clear mount stamp, I can just mount it together to use it together when I want to as well. Win-win!
This is where I cut it.
 

Back soon with another project. Thanks for visting today. Remember to pin my pics for later & don't miss getting up to 40% off during the Online Extravaganza sale - on until November 28th.
