Closer...

I did add Wink of Stella to the tree branches (on the designer paper) -- regardless of the light I cannot capture that sparkle--but this adds great dimension to the tree.

Now I love to color--so as I looked at the coordinating stamp set I see a beautiful stamp that we can die cut with the arabesque die..this image is wonderful for coloring but I had limited time---so here's a quick rendition of the stamped tag and I did use the Blends and a ton of rhinestones because---there's never too much sparkle! So here's your bonus gift tag...

How to Create Simple Quick DIY Christmas Gift Tags Using Delicate Baubles Dies

Today I'll show you How to Create Simple Quick DIY Christmas Gift Tags Using Delicate Baubles Dies!

If you checked out our creations last week we were making tea light tent cards with the Delicate Baubles Dies--if you missed these check them out here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2021/11/how-to-light-up-your-tent-card.html and here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2021/11/how-to-make-another-tea-light-card.html.

You'll see that in these creations we had 'trash' that we turned into simple lovely gift tags. So I decided we should create some intentional tags and bump up the creativity a bit. Here's today's creation using these dies..

Merry & bright

And a closer look at the details

Merry & bright cu

And on the back we stamped the 'to-from' found in the Bright Baubles coordinating stamp set.

Merry & bright backYou can see the back of the tag is as pretty as the front since we are using double sided designer paper (cut with the solid image dies). The top layer on the front is die cut from red velvet paper--adds lustrous color as well as texture...makes you look like a pro!

Then a punch out of white cardstock using the Label Me lovely punch stamped with 'to from"  and add a loop of sheer red ribbon ---your tag is completed...it's quick, simple and looks fantastic on any gift.

These tags are so quick that you can pop out a dozen in no time. You can use your favorite designer paper--use contrasting cardstock for the top layer and you have a new different tag. In fact, if you have tons of scrap designer paper leftover from your other projects--this is a wonderful way to use that up and turn out some really great tags for your Christmas gifts this year.

I'll give you the step by step directions below followed by the list of supplies that are used.

Remember if you place an order online & use my monthly Host Code (TMTS2VZV) you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for each  $50 in product that you purchase.

Directions:

1. Die cut the solid image of the arabesque design from your favorite Designer Series Paper (I used Heartwarming Hugs).

2. Die cut the Merry & Bright image from red velvet paper---using small dots of liquid glue adhere this to the top of the solid designer paper image.

Note: Using Adhesive Sheets on the back of the red velvet prior to die-cutting can be very quick when applying this layer to the designer paper.

3. Punch white cardstock with Label Me Lovely punch; stamp "to-from" (Bright Baubles stamp set) in black ink. Adhere this to the back of the gift tag.

4. Punch a hole in the top of the tag using any handheld 1/4"  circle punch. 

5. Cut approximately 18" of sheer red ribbon, loop through the above hole and you're ready   to go!

Your tag is ready for giving.

How to Make Another Tea Light Card

Today I'll show you How to Make Another Tea Light Card. If you missed Tuesday's card...check it out here  https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2021/11/how-to-light-up-your-tent-card.html

Just by changing the designer paper and the material for the ornament overlay--you can change the entire "look" of the card. Today's card is more formal with the copper foil and the Evergreen based designer paper. Adding that red bow adds a burst of color that complements the red berries in the paper.

Here's today's version...
