Bonus – Merry Tag and a Gift Box

My daily blog entries usually post at 5am EST every morning.  I am the Guest Designer for The Merry Monday Christmas Challenge this week, so today’s daily post with The Merry Monday challenge will post at 8am.  Since I know you rely on me each morning for a post, I’ve created this bonus entry for you.  Please be sure to check back at 8am for my Merry Mondays card – if you subscribe to my blog, you’ll receive an email when it’s live.  Yippee!

This is a quick-and-easy project based on a simple technique with sponge daubers.  Pam Morris, my upline, created this adorable tag based on a project from Convention .  It’s SO EASY to recreate – so easy that I shared this project with my team members at July’s team meeting.  Candy Ford also shared this tag in her recent Open House.

Seasonally Scattered, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingFind Detailed Instructions for this Tag.  The technique is very similar to the dauber technique I shared in THIS VIDEO.  Candy includes step-by-step instructions for this tag on her blog (with me as guest hand model).  CLICK HERE to see Candy’s Blog post with wonderful instructions (and my beautiful hands).

Stamp Sets:  Seasonally Scattered  Inks:  Island Indigo, Soft Sky  Papers:  Soft Sky, Whisper White  Accessories:  Scalloped Tag Topper punch, Basic Jewel Rhinestones, Soft Sky 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, Island Indigo 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon

  1. Thanks for sharing the link to Candy’s blog. I checked out her open house. Well done.

    I hope she paid you a lot for your hand modeling job. Hand models get paid well and you had to pose for lots of pictures. 🙂

  2. Hi Brian!
    Cool idea for a tag!!! Where is the link for the box?????

    • Gay, The box is just “an accessory” here. 🙂 The box was made with the standard instructions included in the Gift Box Punch Board (debuting in the Holiday Catalog). Hope that helps. Brian

  3. Great tag. And I checked out Candy’s blog and demo. Now I’ll just HAVE TO add that set to my wish list.

  4. You are apparently ” hand” y to have around.
