More Homemade Vanilla Tags

I made more Homemade Vanilla tags using the Poinsettia Dies, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, sponge daubers, Stampin’ Spritzers & Shimmery White Embossing Paste. Who says that poinsettias have to be white or red? I decided to try a couple different colors. Seaside Spray, Gorgeous Grape, Pretty Peacock & Rocco Rose.

I started off die cutting a bunch of poinsettias with the dies. There are 4 layers to each flower. I set each size on a few layers of paper towels, used my Sponge Daubers to color the center of each flower. Here’s where the magic happens, then I spritzed each flower with water. I let the color run. Each flower is so unique. Let them almost dry and used my Bone Folder to curve each petal and the end of my stylus to cup each flower. Once they were all dry I took some Shimmery White Embossing Paste and added a bit to each petal. Let it dry and hot glue all the flowers together.

Then I took matching cardstock (in the colors above) and stamped the flowers and leaves on each 2 1/2″ x 4″ piece, rounded the top corners and punched a hole at the top. I hot glued each completed flower to the tag and added a few sprigs and leaves. Finished off with a Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplet in the center of each flower. I tied either the Metallic Mesh or Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo bow on each bottle of vanilla after I put it into a clear bag and added the tag with White Baker’s Twine (retired). I also added the sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas. These four are going to some special friends.

The vanilla is really easy to make. Vodka & Vanilla Beans. I got the Vanilla Beans & Bottles from Amazon. The beans are Madagascar Vanilla beans. You just cut each bean in half and score down the center and add to the bottle with the vodka. Let it sit for a few weeks and shake each week. It makes such a nice gift and the vanilla is wonderful to use in your baked items.  If you’d like more info on the beans and bottles, let me know.

Dragonfly Garden Bundle

This is a really fun and simple card my Stamp Club gals did this month. It features the Dragonfly Garden Bundle & the Dandy Garden Memories & More Cards & Envelopes. I love that the envelope is printed on the front and also on the flap. You can see the flap in the second photo.

What you need:

1 1/4″ x 6″ Dandy Garden dsp

Scrap of Whisper White for the sentiment, die cut from the Stitched Nested Dies

Dandy Garden Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, Dandy Garden dsp, Dragonfly Garden Bundle, Ladybug Trinkets, Stitched Nested Dies, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Wink of Stella, I

To start I took 1″ off the front of this card base, then added the 1 1/4″ strip of Dandy Garden dsp to the inside. Stamp the sentiment in Memento Black Ink onto the Stitched Nested Die Cut. Add a couple of Dimensionals and attach towards the bottom of the card. With the Dragonflies Punch, punch out the dragonflies and add a few Dimensionals. Also add one of the Ladybug Trinkets to the label.

All you have left to do is to “wink” the dragonflies with Wink of Stella. Done!

All of these products will be available to order on January 5, 2021. If you would like to get your hands on them sooner, join my team and they can go on your “starter kit”.  Contact me if your interested.
