My Creative Time's August Stamp Release Blog Hop!


Oh Happy Friday and welcome to My Creative Time's August Stamp Release Blog Hop!  If feels like this week flew by, with so many great "sneak peeks"!  You should have arrived here from sweet Leanne!  If you just popped by to see me, thank you, however you will want to head over the start so you don't miss a thing.  Plus that way you have more chance to win the FABULOUS giveaway!!! (see below for details)

Today I wanted to show you just how adorable Emma's tag dies go with everything!  I used a small glassine bag from my Boutique to hold the tag die!


First I stamp the scroll stamp, cut it out, then stamped "dear santa".


Added some glitter to the tree, attached a crinkled seam binding ribbon, beige picot trim, and a cream pearl.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment on the tag die and tied seam binding ribbon, 3/8" jute ribbon, and metallic 1mm hemp with a bell.  I love that this could be used by itself as a gift card holder or attach it to a card base!


For this card I did some stitching and embossing for the sentiment.  Also used the bell die with the bow for some added "bling"!  I just adore the little bell dies!!!

Recipe:
paper: Graphic 45, Papertrey Ink, Stampin Up
ink, glitter, embossing powder, gold  cording, button
MS branch punch, boarder punch
