DIY Gift Tag Project with the Stampin' Up! Citrus Blooms Bundle


I'm so excited to share today's DIY gift tag project with you! The Stampin' Up! Citrus Blooms Bundle and its coordinating patterned paper are the stars of this beautiful creation. This project was featured in a LIVE video this week, and it's perfect for adding a special touch to your gifts.


I recently came across a gorgeous towel on Amazon that immediately caught my eye.(Leave a comment if you'd like the link for the towels!) The lemons and citrus blooms backed by a stunning blue and white tile pattern were just what I needed to complement the Citrus Blooms Bundle. I knew right away that I had to create a paper craft to match this beautiful find.

In the LIVE video, I demonstrated how to create this lovely gift tag, perfect for enhancing any present, especially one featuring a citrus theme. The combination of the bright, cheerful colors and the intricate designs of the Citrus Blooms Bundle makes this tag truly stand out.

Take a look at the recording of the LIVE session below and be inspired to make your own:

Highlight Technique with Stampin' Up! Thoughtful Journey Designer Series Paper


Today, I’m excited to share a beautiful card sample featuring a highlight technique using the Thoughtful Journey Designer Series Paper. This technique is perfect for making the most out of a single 6 x 6 piece of this gorgeous designer paper, ensuring you can create stunning cards.

First, one of the 6 x 6 sheets was chosen, and a colorful scenic section was die-cut with a square from the Stylish Shapes Dies [159183].  The remaining part of the scene can be die-cut and saved for a future card.


Next, one of the intricate dies from the Thoughtful Wishes Bundle was cut from the bottom portion which produced a beautiful multi-color effect.

In this next step, the die-cut piece was cut in half to partially "frame" the highlighted square as seen in the next photo.


To complete the card, a color from the designer paper was chosen for the base, with a strip of coordinating designer paper to add a little pizzazz to the background.  The die-cut pieces were adhered to behind the highlighted square for the perfect accent.  The sentiment was stamped on a die-cut banner from the Stylish Shapes Dies [159183].


Using this highlighting technique, you can create multiple cards that all look unique and beautiful, each making the most of your designer paper. It’s a fantastic way to stretch your supplies and get creative with your designs.
