How to create Handsomely Suited Gift Tags!

As you may know by now the Stampin’ Up! January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue is on its way! As a demonstrator I have been able to pre-order some of the fabulous products which is really exciting. I’ll be sharing them with you as much as possible so that you can decide which ones are for you and give you some ideas to get you started.

Today I want to share a couple of Handsomely Suited Gift Tags! These projects feature products from the upcoming Well Suited Suite. The Suite consists of the Handsomely Suited Stamp Set, Suit & Tie Dies (save 10% by purchasing as a bundle!), Well Suited Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Well Suited Twine Combo Pack.

Let’s make them… Handsomely Suited Gift Tags

Start by creating the base tag. For this you will need a piece of cardstock measuring 5 x 10 cm. Shape the tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. In the first example I have used Basic Black cardstock. In the second example I have used Whisper White Thick cardstock follow by a piece of the DSP.

Use the dies to cut out the collar (in the appropriate cardstock or DSP) and adhere to the tag using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In the first example I have stamped the tie onto Smoky Slate ink in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This is cut out using the coordinating die. Stamp the sentiment onto Smoky Slate cardstock and cut out using the Classic Label Punch. The word ‘handsome’ is from one of the larger sentiments in the Handsomely Suited so I masked off the rest of the sentiment before stamping. This label is then adhered to the tag using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In the second example I have cut out the buttons from Seaside Spray cardstock and adhered them to the ‘shirt’ using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Seaside Spray cardstock and cut out using the Classic Label Punch. The label is adhered to the tag using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The ribbons I have used are the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (which I have coloured using the Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker) and the Night of Navy Ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack.

What do you think to my Handsomely Suited Gift Tags?

I hope you enjoyed finding out how to make these Handsomely Suited Gift Tags. I’m sure you are going to love this Suite – the DSP is full of gorgeous patterns just perfect for making these cute little shirts, suits and ties!

Let’s make it… Darling Donkeys Gift Tags

All three of the tags are created in the same way but using a different colour scheme.

Start by creating the basic tag shapes. Trim a piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock to 5 x 10 cm. Use the Scalloped Tag Topper and Detailed Trio Punches to create the shape.

Stamp the donkey image from the Darling Donkeys Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Colour the donkey using Stampin’ Blends (I used a combination of the Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate and Grey Granite Combos, plus Shaded Spruce and Rococo Rose for the flower).

Stamp the sentiment at the base of the tag. All of the sentiments I have used are included in the Darling Donkeys Stamp Set. I used Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight inks.

Embellish the tags using the 2020-2022 In Colour Enamel Dots and add coordinating ribbon to finish.

How to create gorgeous Christmas gift tags

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to show you how to create gorgeous Christmas gift tags. For these tags I have used a variety of Stampin’ Up! products.

I think beautiful gift tags are so important. We put so much effort into choosing the perfect gifts for our loved ones. I believe we should put just as much effort into the presentation of the gift!

Gorgeous Christmas Gift Tags by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s make it… Gorgeous Christmas Gift Tags

All of the tags are created in the same way but in different colours. The colours shown are Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce. You can use any colours for which you have Christmas themed DSP.

Trim a piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock to 5 x 10 cm. Use the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the Detailed Trio Punch to create the tag shape. Repeat this with a piece of Designer Series Paper (I have used the Classic Christmas DSP). Adhere these two layers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. See here for the Stampin’ Up! DSP collection.

Using the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set, stamp the Christmas tree and infill onto Whisper White cardstock in the desired colour. Cut out using the coordinating Pine Tree Punch.

Heat emboss the sentiment using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto coordinating cardstock. I have used the ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set. Cut out the sentiment using an appropriately sized die. I have used one of the Tasteful Labels Dies. Adhere the sentiment piece to the main tag using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Adhere the Christmas Tree to the tag using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by attaching one of the Glittering Star Ornaments using the Braided Linen Trim.

Would it be great if you created a whole matching set of Christmas card, gift wrap and tag using this design?! I think that would look so cute.

How To Make This Stunning Gilded Autumn Gift Bag

Hello and welcome to Part 3 of my Stampin’ Up! Gilded Autumn Suite Showcase. Today I’m going to show you how to make this stunning Gilded Autumn gift bag with matching tag. If you missed the first two instalments of this showcase, you can find them here… Part 1 and Part 2.

As you may have guessed, this bag was made for my Mam! It’s her birthday at the end of the month and I wanted a cute bag to put some of her gifts in. As usual, she’ll see her presents here before she sees them in real life – sorry Mam!

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Gift Bag by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s Make It…

Start with a sheet of the Gilded Autumn Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP). I chose the Mint Macaron sheet with Copper foil foliage because the foiling really makes it feel special.

Score the DSP at 10, 14.5, 24.5 and 29 cm. Rotate through 90 degrees and score at 5, 25 and 29 cm. Check whether your DSP sheet has a particular orientation before scoring! Fold along all score lines.

Snip up the score lines at the bottom of the DSP to meet the horizontal score line. Create tabs by snipping off small triangles.

Assemble the bag using Tear & Tape on the 1cm tabs and on the bottom of the bag. Squeeze the top of the bag together to close. Punch holes in the top of the bag for the ribbon.

Create the tag using a 10 x 5 cm piece of Mint Macaron Cardstock. Shape the tag using the Detailed Trio and Scalloped Tag Topper Punches. Decorate with elements punched from the DSP using the Autumn Punch Pack. Cut the letters (Playful Alphabet Dies) from Copper Brushed Metallic Cardstock using the Foam Adhesive Sheets.

Tie the tag to the bag using the Copper Metallic Ribbon and embellish with one of the Acorn Trinkets.

Finally, fill with goodies and gift to someone who deserves Speciality DSP for their gift wrap!

What do you think to my Gilded Autumn Gift Bag?

I hope you like this stunning gift bag; I’m sure my Mam will! Who do you know that deserves Speciality DSP for their gift wrap? Why not make a custom gift bag like this one?
