Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | 12 Days of Christmas – Day 5
Welcome to Day 5 of my 12 Days of Christmas series. Today I have a set of gift tags to share with you, made using the Celebration Thinlits. These tags have an over-the-top, decadent, super glittery look that I love at Christmas, but are really quick and easy to make and will make you look like a crafting superstar 😉
I used the Celebration Thinlits to create these sparkle confections and this was definitely one of those sets I’d overlooked in the Annual Catalogue until just recently. It’s available to purchase as a bundle with a coordinating stamp set and though the set is nice it didn’t really grab me like some of the others do, but the thinlits!!! oh my gosh, that’s another story – they are gorgeous 🙂
There are 14 framelits in this set that create a lovely shaped tag with additional layers as well as loads of other mix and match elements to use together or by themselves.
Make sure to check out my SU Annual Catalogue 2017/18 Pinterest Board to see some of the ideas I’ve found using this fun set.
This set of framelits are also 20% off (
$50.00 NOW $40.00) in the current Online Extravaganza and I think are a worthwhile addition to any stash – they’ve made it into mine 🙂
I used Basic Black cardstock and Gold Glimmer Paper to create this set of tags and simply die cut two layers and adhered them together. I haven’t added a sentiment, it would have been too much and even though I designed them with Christmas in mind they can be used for any gift giving occasion.
I used my favourite Black Shimmer Ribbon at the top, tied with Gold 1/8″ Ribbon to add even more sparkle and my tags were done! These were so easy to make, but look super luxurious in person and would make any gift seem that little more special 🙂
I’m planning to write on the back of mine with a chalk or white gel pen, but you could add another cardstock layer in a lighter colour to write on if you preferred.
The Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets are ideal to adhere the two tag layers together, but if you don’t have those, some Tombow, a piece of sponge and your silicone mat will also do the job without too much mess.
This tip has been around for a while now and I thought I’d share a simple pictorial of how it’s done. It’s a great method to use for intricate die cuts as it stops the glue getting on the front and helps to add just a thin layer all over, so no seeping 🙂
I hope you liked today’s quick and easy project. Tags are usually the item I leave to the last-minute or end up using store-bought ones, but this year I’m ready and with these framelits can easily whip up more if needed 🙂
I know black and gold aren’t everyone’s go to Christmas colours and I’ll be sharing a variation of these later on to give you some different ideas.
I’ll see you all on Monday with Day 6 🙂
Please note: The Celebrations Thinlits (20% off) and Gold Glimmer Paper (10% off) that I used in today’s project are on sale in the current Online Extravaganza.
The Celebration Thinlits are also available as a bundle, it’s now $1 cheaper to buy the framelits and stamp set separately than in the clear-mount bundle.
