Coastal Cabana Gift Tag

I really love this year's In Colors! Today's tag features Baked Brown Sugar and Coastal Cabana.

I used the Chevron embossing folder again and the largest tag shape from Apothecary Accents Framelits. The little tag "hole" is a framelit from the new Chalk Talk set! So cute! The polka dot DSP is from the In Color stack, and the layer behind the sentiment is another Apothecary Accents framelit. Notice the yummy ribbon? It's Ruffled Stretch Trim, available in all 5 of the new In Colors. It's perfect to fit around a mason jar gift.

The Simply Pressed Clay is one of my favorite new products. It's easy to use, and with re-inkers, I can make buttons and flowers in ANY color I want.

Stamps: Label Love
Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, In Color DSP Stack
Ink: Coastal Cabana ink pad and re-inker
Accessories: Chevron Embossing Folder, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Chalk Talk Framelits, Artisan Label Punch, Coastal Cabana Ruffled Stretch Trim, Simply Pressed Clay and flower mold

Brown Sugar Gift Card Holder

Seems like I've been mailing out lots of gift cards lately! I love this holder made from the Stampin Up Pop n Cuts base die. It's just three simple score lines--fast and easy.

With the flat edge of the card base to the left of your Simply Scored, score at 1 inch, 3 3/4 inches, and 8 1/4 inches. Done! Fold on the score lines and the tabs fit into the little slots. I copied the idea from this blog.

To decorate this gift card, I used

Stamps: Label Love (NEW!)
Paper: Quatrefancy Specialty DSP  (NEW!), New In Color Baked Brown Sugar
Ink: Island Indigo, Baked Brown Sugar re-inker
Accessories: SU Pop n Cuts card base, Chevron embossing folder, 2 1/2" circle punch, Artisan Label punch (NEW!), Island Indigo Baker's Twine, and the fabulous NEW Simply Pressed Clay and Button Mold

Here is the inside view. I cut a piece of cardstock 3x4 and rounded the corners. Then I adhered the giftcard with glue dots.

Don't forget to place your new catalog order  by June 15 using the Hostess Code P3MDA6WJ  You'll be entered in the drawing to win the hostess benefits from the order, and your order will be shipped immediately right to your door!
