DeNami Gift Tag Blog Hop





Welcome to the DeNami Gift Tag Blog Hop. I'm so excited to share my pieces with these wonderful artists. I've barely begun my holiday shopping and decorating and this was a great way to jump into the season. Hopefully you take way some great ideas for adding your personal touch to your gift giving. You should have made your way here from the blog of Ann Cox. If you get lost along the way, you can start again or jump in at a specific spot by going to the DeNami Blog site.

If I had to narrow it down to one submissions, I’d pick the pointsettia tag so I’ll start there. I used a kraft die cut tag to start and stamped the small pointsettia blossom and single pointsettia in black. They have a quick color of markers and then I used a (very old) Christmas words stamp in green to overlay the text. I used several colors of distress ink to color from the edges of the card and topped it off with some ivory with gold taffeta ribbon and paper pointsettias with brads in the centers. I love using paper flowers. It’s a quick and beautiful embellishment.

The snowflake tag is a very simple tag. I just received my snow flake card kit so I was playing with the snow flake trifle stamps. They're stamped with medium/light blue. I used this ink to sponge some color around the end and then ran the edges through the ink for a darker color. I ran a piece of silver glitter ribbon along the edge. I love these ribbons. They are so unique. I punched blue and silver snow flakes and topped them with some silver rhinestones and stamp 'To" in black . These are my favorite crystals because each individual piece has adhesive - no cutting the strip and hoping the crystals stays with the adhesive. Finally, it's topped with blue taffeta ribbon. Let it snow (on my card and in my imagination, but not outside my home or anywhere I drive).

The holly tag is also simple. It starts with a die cut green tag. I used the mini star and versamark ink for a subtle watermark look. Next I cut a piece of holly holiday paper and embossed the “To” in gold. It's layered on gold cardstock and has a coordinating ribbon across the top and bottom. The ribbon adds another strip of color and some texture. I added the ivory with gold taffeta ribbon on top to finish the tag.

Finally, I wanted to use the wreath stamp as the basis of a gift tag and I decided to use the espresso stamp set (and a coffee bean stamp) as the focal points. I added a little color and some rhinestones. Both the wreath and the background paper were punched with Marvy craft punches. Because I wanted to show that sharing a cup of coffee can be a special treat between friends, I used two tags on this card which were liked by the coffee theme and the background paper. The green grosgrain ribbon is wrapped around the bag of coffee and both tags are hanging like stockings on the mantle.

I hope you enjoy the hop and appreciate your stopping by my blog today. Please leave a comment to have a chance to win a DeNami gift certificate. I would have no problem using that up quickly.

The next stop on the hop is

Enjoy the day and have a happy holiday season and new year.
