So Totally Awesome In Color Tags

I recently needed some tags for some awesome team members who completed our 15-day #royalchallenge, and I’m excited to share that tag with you today. Each member who completed and shared projects on each day of the 15 day challenge received a little bundle of goodies that were topped with this tag:

Waves of Inspiration tags, Stampin Up!, Brian KingThe tag is relatively simple, I admit, but I played with a lot of different punches and dies before finding this combination that worked so well for me. Several products layered together on the tag to make a special treat for each team member.  Here’s a look a the products:

  • The base of the tag is cropped from Parakeet Party cardstock with the Tailor Made Tags Dies (#155563), a stand-alone set of dies that was introduced in Stampin’ Up!’s 2021 Annual Catalog and carried forward into the 2022 Catalog.
  • The striped layers is cropped from the 2022-2024 In Color 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper with the Lasting Label Punch (#158651), part of the Lovely & Lasting Bundle that’s new in Stampin’ Up!’s 2022 Annual Catalog. To ensure the Designer Series Paper didn’t bend in transit, I layered each piece with a punch the coordinating cardstock behind it.
  • I stamped the sentiment with the Waves of Inspiration stamp set, new in the 2022 Annual Catalog (and early-released before the catalog went live) and cropped it with the Label Me Fancy Punch (#151297).
  • The tag was tied with a few layers of coordinating 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine Pack (#159195).

It’s really simple, but I love how the Label Me Fancy Punch layers on the Lasting Label Punch. As soon as I realized how well they fit together, I knew I’d found the simple design for my tags.

I created a variety of tags in four of the 2022-2024 In Colors (I didn’t use Starry Sky because I wouldn’t be able to stamp the sentiment with the same black ink on the darkest of the five colors). Here’s a look at all five of Stampin’ Up!’s 2022-2024 In Colors (such a great collection of colors!):

Stampin Up! 2022-2024 In Colors - Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Sweet Sorbet, Orchid Oasis, Starry SkyI made tags in four of the In Colors – each color worked well with the design. Here’s a look at some of the tags I made with Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Sweet Sorbet and Orchid Oasis:

I love making simple tags to accompany gifts, catalogs and rewards. A tag might not take as much time to design or create as a card, but it can be as exciting a gift to receive. I hope you like these layers on these tags.
