Hi friends! It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Carol chose for us to make anything but a card! Easy enough!
I have lots to share with you today. I was asked by one of my retired teacher friends to purchase bottles of wine for our retirees Christmas party. I couldn't give her "naked" bottles of wine, so I decorated them! I saw a picture on MFT's email newsletter of the elf wine tag on the left and I had to copy it! I ordered the elf and wine tag dies as well as the snowman die, and when I received them, went straight to work!
I die cut all the elf pieces from different colored cardstocks as well as red glitter cardstock and adhered them together. Then I die cut the wine glass and created the shaker and adhered that to the elf. The sentiment was stamped and embossed in white embossing powder. This was then adhered to the wine tag. So cute!
I did the same with the adorable snowman. He was easier to put together because there weren't as many parts to him! These are so cute and sparkly in person and looked adorable on the wine bottles.
It's also that time of year when we need all the gift tags. I recently purchased the Speed Tagging stamps and coordinating die set from The Greetery. All these different tags are on one 6x6 rubber stamp, and the dies for it are all attached onto one die. So all you do is stamp, place the die over the stamped piece and die cut all the tags at once...speed tagging! I stamped them twice. Once in black ink and once in red.
Once the tags were stamped and die cut, I stamped the various sentiments in various inks on them.
I also added some of the foliage and bells on the tags to spiff them up.
I added the twine and shimmer to each of them as well to finish off the tags. This is such an easy and fast way to create tags! I think there are seven different tags on the one stamp. So fun!

Thanks for stopping by! (Pictures are not the greatest! They were taken in my kitchen as opposed to my photo box!)
