Today’s Simple Sunday project came about as I realised that every time I made a gift tag it involved at least one punch (and often more). It made me wonder if I could make a tag using absolutely no punches at all. So with the retiring Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements as my starting point I set to work.
I began with the large copper star and with a few dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) attached it to a piece of Blueberry Bushel Card. Then using my Paper Snips I cut away the excess card using the star as my guide.
Next, using Blueberry Bushel ink I stamped the “Just for you” sentiment from the #Elfie Stamp Set onto Whisper White Card. With that done I went back to my Paper Snips and cut around the sentiment.
In lieu of a hole for my Whisper White Baker’s Twine, I used Tear & Tape Adhesive to attach it to the back of one of the points on the star.
Now I needed to create the actual base for the tag and for that I chose Pool Party Card. I used liquid glue to fix my layered star to the card then placed the card on my Paper Trimmer. I positioned the card so two points were about 1/16″ from the cutting line and trimmed off the rest. Then I turned the star and repeated the process four more times until I had created a pentagon.
At this point I thought the Pool Party Card needed a little definition so I pressed each of the 5 edges onto the Blueberry Bushel ink pad.
Finally with some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals I added the sentiment to the star and my project was complete.
As I mentioned the Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements are retiring, so they are now only available while stocks last. I love the copper foil designs and they really aren’t just for Christmas.
Here are some of my other blog posts using these striking embellishments:
By the way, on a number of these posts you may see the Brightly Gleaming 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper mentioned. Sadly this gorgeous paper is currently unavailable. However it will be back on sale when with the release of the Stampin’ Up! 2020 Holiday Catalogue sometime in the second half of the year.
