Clear and Simple Stamps Group Challenge


I've said it before, but it's worth saying again - I love the new stamps released this month at Clear and Simple Stamps! It's all about tags and die cuts! Two of my favorites all combined into a stamp collection with endless possibilities.

Today, the Design Team is sharing some fun gift ideas for using the tags from Taglines and Trendy Tags. Of course, there are die cuts too!

I created a little gift box perfect for some jewelry, hair clips, make-up, you name it! 

I started by punching a scalloped border from cardstock and adding some matching patterned paper. 

After tying some pretty ribbon, I stamped two leaves from Fall Studio collection (a gorgeous stamp set) onto plain copy paper. Yes, plain paper from my printer! (I know, don't gasp.) I wanted the leaves to be delicate, soft, light. Just like they are in nature. I like how they were able to curl up softly by rolling the paper around a pencil. 

I stamped a sweet little tag and tied it with baker's twine, and embellished with a millinery flower. The rich fall colors are my favorite part of this packaging. It's so easy to create when you have a stamp set that you enjoy creating with. I know these little tags are going to get plenty (and plenty) of use!
