Pumpkin Spice And Everything Nice
Hello crafty friends! I am so excited to be on the blog today. The newest release is out and it is absolutely ADORABLE! I have a fun little tag/gift card holder that requires no special tools or dies. It is perfect for holding a gift card to get the infamous "Pumpkin Spice" products. Let's proceed to the cuteness overload.
I started with a plain manilla pre-made tag from my stash. These are very easy to find at any store. Using the Chunky Sweater Stencil, I ink blended Distress Oxide in Bundled Sage directly onto the tag. It is such a beautiful fall color. To create the pocket, I found some chocolate brown cardstock and cut it to size. The sentiment was white heat embossed on the bottom making sure to leave enough room for the Llama. I added strong double sided tape to the sides and bottom adhering the "pocket" to the tag.
I stamped the Coffee Llama and accessories with my favorite black alcohol safe ink onto white cardstock and colored them using my favorite fall colors. The colors I used were: YG95, G99 (CUP); YR21, YR24, YR27 (SCARF); E35, E33, E31 (COFFEE); C1, C0 (CREAM); W5, W3, W1, W0, R00 (LLAMA). All images were cut out and I began to assemble them onto the tag front.
Using liquid glue and foam tape, I added the Llama to the tag. The llama, scarf, cup and cream were adhered directly onto each other. The arms had to be popped up with foam tape so he/she could hold the mug. Aren't those arms so cute?! For the final touches, gold sequins were taken from the Black Magic sequin pack, a touch of sparkle pen was added to the whipped cream, and ribbons were added to the top of the tag.
I think this would be such a great back to school gift for a teacher and anyone to "perk" them up. Thank you for joining me today. Stay crafty!
