A Pretty Purple Posy Tag

In June, I hosted Brian’s 2019-2021 In Color Bundles where customers could purchase all of the new In Color products with a small discount and gift from me. These Brian’s Bundles were mailed out without Purple Posy ink or ink refills due to quality issues with the Purple Posy ink (Stampin’ Up! removed the soft purple ink from the online store until they could get it right). Guess what! They got it right – and it’s now available!  ♥

To complete the In Color Bundles I received in June, I ordered all the Purple Posy ink when it became available. Once it arrived from Stampin’ Up!, I was ready to mail it out in style. Here’s the sweet tag I made to accompany the ink pad and ink refills:

Painted Glass, Free as a Bird, Delightful Tag Topper, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingThe tag features Purple Posy cardstock, ink and 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. I stamped a purple butterfly from the Painted Glass stamp set and a simple “thank you” on the Designer Series Paper from the Free as a Bird stamp set. I made more than one, so I’m excited to share the “infinity shot” of the tags:

The Delightful Tag Topper Punch is sold on its own or as part of the Delightful Day Bundle in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog. Here’s a look at this great tag topper punch:

  1. The icing on the Purple Posy cake! Darling concept and your handwriting is perfect with the sentiment!

  2. Perfect in purple! Adorable tags!

  3. Cute tags in Purple Posy! I am always in awe of your infinity shots. Have a great day!

  4. I adore these tags!

  5. That’s beautiful! I love any and all super pale ink. Adorable tags.

  6. Such a beautiful touch for your customers!

  7. Beautiful tags/packaging! I always enjoy your infinity shots!! Fun!!

    • Yay! Thanks so much, Elisha! Whenever there are multiples, I always try to get a good infinity shot. It can take just as much time to line them all up for the photograph as it does to make them (well, not as much time…)

  8. How fun for your customers to have their first Brian signature or another one to add to their collection. Either way, very exciting. The tag in purple posey is adorable. Looking forward to seeing all the beautiful cards you make using this beautiful purple.

    • 🙂 Thanks, Katrina! I always like to personalize a little bit and have gotten very fast at my signature. 🙂 I love the idea that someone might keep all these tags or quick letters. ♥

  9. Oh Brian – how sweet of you to make tags for all your customers to go on the Purple Posy ink pad and re-inkers. I don’t know how you find the time to do all that you do. I too so enjoy your infinity shots. Nice to know that I’m not the only one that makes cards in “batches”. You ARE the BEST!

    • I don’t get to make multiples of many cards (I’m always on to the next card in my design-mind). When I can make some multiples, I always get a snapshot of them. 🙂 Thanks, Grace! ♥

  10. Delightful tags Brian, the colors are so soft and so sweet.
    I’m sure your lucky customers will treasure them always.
    I love the fact that you sign each and every tag, so personal and sweet.
    Awesome job.

  11. So Brian! Love it.
