Merry Little Labels from Stampin' Up! - Not just for tags

Stampin' Up! Merry Little Labels

Cards like this remind me regularly how grateful I am to my lovely loyal customers and team.  This card reminds me of them because the stamp set Merry Little Labels was a gift from Stampin' Up! on our trip to Thailand back in July. It's a gorgeous stamp set and whilst it is perfect for gift tags and labelling gifts and treats it is also just as pretty used on cards.

This card layout was designed by my dear friend Chris Scott who shared what she'd made at a class she taught.  She made it in shades of blue and I have recreated it using the Merry Little Christmas designer series paper and in conjunction with the stampin up set Snowflake Sentiments.

It's amazing what you can do with just a single colour ink pad and this time it is as simple as black memento.  This is great because it's an ink that is also used with the new Stampin' Blends so very useful for your stash.

To make the focal point you need to stamp 3 label images and then fold them in half carefully.  Then stick the left back of one to the right back of the second and continue to add the third.  Then adhere to your card using the left back of the first and right back of the third.  No you haven't moved to the sports field, but if you think it through this way it's easy.  The whole thing folds flat for posting too!  The bow is done in the same way and was cut using the holly berry builder punch.

I've added my usual bling. I love the faceted gems.  DID YOU KNOW...... you can make them different colours carefully using the brush tip of the new Stampin' Blends!

I've also been making cards at a community event that I attend a few times a year.  It's a Welcome Club in Woodhall Spa. It's open to anyone to come along for a cuppa and meet some friendly people. These ladies enjoyed making simply stamped Christmas cards.

There are often other visitors there too as well as me with my stamps.
This time we were joined by the Lincs/Notts Air Ambulance; a fantastic organisation which is funded purely by donations and has on average 3 call outs a day.  It was very interesting and is well worth supporting in this area or your own service where you live.
