Two Very Merry Tags & A New Photopolymer Stamp Set From Stampin’ Up!

Happy Friday!!  I created a wine tag and gift box to share with you today using the Very Merry Tags stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  The wine tag and box were both quick and simple.

Very Merry Tags - Stamp With Amy K

I created a quick photo tutorial for the base wine tag and you can see it by clicking here.

Very Merry Tags 1 - Stamp With Amy K

The Top Note striped die cut and the Cherry Cobbler Window Frame die cut are both from the Pop & Place Holiday Gift Tags Book.  I layered a piece of Baked Brown Sugar card stock in between that I’d cut with a Window Frames Collection Framelit and embossed with the Argyle Embossing Folder.  I also used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and my Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce the Cherry Cobbler tag.

The image from the Very Merry Tags stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) was colored with Stampin’ Write Markers, stamped on Whisper White card stock then punched out with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch.  I adhered the image to the layered tags with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel that I’d colored with a red Sharpie Marker for his nose.

I used one of the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes and one of the Pop & Place Holiday Gift Tags to add a little decoration to the box.  I simply cut the tag down to 1-1/2″ strips and adhered them to the sides of the box with SNAIL.  The Cherry Cobbler 1″ Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon hides the seam in the tag when the acetate sleeve/box lid is in place.

To create the layered ribbon, I simply ran my SNAIL down a strip of Old Olive 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and I adhered it over the Cherry Cobbler ribbon.  I adhered the ribbon to the box lid with Sticky Strip and I adhered both bows with Glue Dots.

The detailed list of items that I used to create the tag and box set is at the very bottom of the post.

  • These stamps stick amazingly well to Stampin’ Up!’s clear blocks.
  • They’re age tested. They won’t yellow or cloud up over time.

The Fine Print

  • Not available in wood-mount or clear-mount.
  • All photopolymer will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don’t forget you can store them in Stampin’ Up!’s clear cases.

  1. Amy, I received my package with your blog candy today. I can’t thank you enough. Your card is prettier in person than online–love it! Can’t believe I’m the recipient of an Amy K online card. Love the way you finish the inside of your cards. It has inspired me to add this little extra to my cards. I definitely think it completes the card. We have a card swap each month at Stamp Club and our demo always looks to see what I’ve done to the inside of my card. Thanks again for all the inspiration (and the blog candy)!!!

    ….. Pat Roth
