Hi! Thanks for joining me and some of my stamping friends for a Freshly Brewed Projects Hop hosted by the lovely Leonie Schroder.
The theme for this week is “Tags &/or Labels”. I love a good tag, so I couldn’t resist joining in with this one. The last Freshly Brewed hop I was able to join in for was the One Sheet Wonder theme – and it has been a constant source of inspiration for me. You can see the last hop by clicking here.
The tags I am sharing today are made using the stamps, dies, paper and ribbon from the Boho Indigo Product Medley.
I was on the fence about ordering this suite of products, but boy am I glad I did! Lets start with the DSP – it’s 48 sheets (8 each of 6 double sided designs, so 12 different patterns) in Night of Navy and Very Vanilla. I have a real thing about blue at the moment, so this is just perfect for me! In the past, some of our most popular DSP patterns have been blue based.
The kit also contains a complete stamp and die set. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box that these are stored in the same way that our usual stamps and dies are (DVD case & plastic pouch) – so they fit right in with the rest of your collection and don’t get forgotten about in a kit box somewhere in the depths of your craft shelf.
And if you haven’t already been spoilt enough with a full pack of DSP, unique stamp set and coordinating dies, you also get 2 rolls of ribbon, embossed cardstock, printed accents (with gold foiling) and paper flowers.
You can use the supplies in the kit to make everything your heart desires from tags to cards to scrapbooking pages to home decor to packaging. There’s some great project ideas on page 9 of the catalogue, and of course, Pinterest is full of ideas too.
My tag were made using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch on a 2″ wide strip of Very Vanilla Cardstock. They are 3-7/8″ in length, which gives you 12 tags per A4 sheet of cardstock. I always like to work out the maths on creating tags to get the best combination from a single sheet. The DSP across the bottom is 3/4″ high by 2″ wide. I needed 4 strips of DSP (half a sheet of DSP) per sheet of cardstock.
The vase is cut from Night of Navy cardstock using one of the vase dies. The branches are stamped in Crumb Cake ink. I set this up on my Stamparatus for quick & easy stamping on all the tags I made. It also enabled me to stamp twice, giving me a deeper colour. The gold ribbon is a gorgeously rustic type of gold – the perfect tone to blend with the richness of the Night of Navy!
Finally, the tags were finished with a thank you sentiment from the stamp set. I used the tags for the paper share I coordinated for my team with ribbon from the kit.
Here’s a look at the gorgeous ribbons from the Annual Catalogue all bundled up in a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box. If you haven’t yet spied these in the Annual Catalogue, you’ll want to add them to your next order. They are a fabulous way to package sweet little gifts including notecards or chocolates! When made up they are approximately 5-7/8″ x 3-3/4″ x 1″ (14.9 x 9.5 x 2.5cm). So cute and petite!
I hope you find some inspiration on this hop to add a tag or label to your next project. It’s the perfect solution when you just need a little something!
Next up on the hop is the artistically awesome Kathryn Ruddick…
Thanks again to Leonie for hosting.
