Fall is right around the corner and we couldn’t be happier! With just a week to go, we are breaking out our Build-a-Wreath: Fall stamp set to create an adorable set of stationery to celebrate the change in seasons. We love the many options packed inside each Build-a-Wreath set to provide a wide variety of wreath style images and scenes perfect for any time of year.
Bring on the sweater weather, we are so ready for Fall. While we may still be a few weeks early ushering in the change of seasons, we just can’t help ourselves…we love Fall! Anybody else out there look forward to the crunch of leaves, change in colors, smell of pumpkin spice and apple pie wafting through the air? We pretty much transform the studio into an Autumn wonderland. Which certainly helps get you in the mood to create pretty stationery like this Hello Fall card… Read more
In June, we celebrate Dads everywhere! The best part about holidays are spending time with loved ones and sharing gifts! If you haven’t noticed, we sort of LOVE the art of gifting right down to the cute tags to embellish pretty wrapped presents. So today we are offering a fun freebie to give you a head start on dressing up your Father’s Day gifts.
We printed the Tag-alongs onto two sheets of CSS Cardstock – once in Pressed Greige Linen and a second time onto Kraft Like a Rockstar. We are completely smitten with a rustic color combo for Dad this year and added a touch of True Blue Fan along with Bronze Spotlight as our gifting palette.
Once we selected our colors, we followed a few quick steps to create a set of tags:
- Download the Father’s Day Tag-alongs and print on the cardstock color of your choice.
- Follow the crop lines on the printout and trim with scissors or a paper cutter.
- Punch a hole through the solid circle on the template to create a tag.
- String with decorative ribbon or twine.
- Decorate your tags with your favorite stamps.
We mainly reached for our A Guy Thing stamp set – it is perfect for creating with Dad in mind, and it’s on special during the month of June to include the coordinating dies [here]!
We couldn’t resist coloring these adorable sneakers to match our color palette. Using our handy File It system, we could quickly select the right markers to match our Bronze Spotlight ink.
We use our Colordex daily! Seriously, we have no idea how we ever created without it.
Still using the A Guy Thing set we went a bit trendy and stamped a fun mustache in True Blue Fan ink. To add a bit of whimsy we grabbed our white gel pen for adding in highlights.
Equally adored as much as mustaches, is a timeless gingham print. Here we doubled up tags by adding a simple stamped Gingham background in Bronze Spotlight ink.
We love that something as simple as layering tags with a fun print or pattern can add so much interest to these printed tags. The hardest part is picking out your favorite pattern – we figured gingham was perfect for the occasion.
Rounding out the set, we kept it modern and fun with random stripes of True Blue Fan lines from the Create-a-Plaid stamp set. Who knew modern could be so chic and so easy to do! Our plaid set is well loved and well used (as you can see by the staining on the stamp set) and comes in handy for decorating tags.
We hope these Father’s Day Tag-alongs will be useful in the coming weeks! Dad’s everywhere will love the extra thought and care put into their special day…
