Stock Your Stash with Gorgeous Quick + Easy Tags Perfect for Adorning Last-Minute Gifts

Crafting holiday tags is so satisfying — not only do you get to make something pretty without carving too much time out of your busy schedule (especially during this busy season of the year when every minute is precious), but the resulting product is an essential component of your holiday prep.

Handmade tags from Stephanie Klauck featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Stephanie has created a gorgeous, sparkly trio of tags for the newest episode of MFTv. The Fold-up Tags Die-namics provides a great starting point — simply choose a palette to work with, in this case, a mix of patterns from the Candy Land Paper Pack and Color Celebration Glitter Card Stock, and die cut a variety of elements. Mixing and matching is the fun part!

It’s always a treat when Lisa joins us – her elegant designs are a delight, and we love the ideas she’s sharing today for creating a card and tag set with the new Snowflake Window Die-namics.

Hi friends! It’s so fun to be stamping a little again and to peek in on my stamping family! I just LOVE all things MFT, so it was lovely to create something for today’s post.

I was SUPER excited when I saw this beautiful new die. The Snowflake Window Die-namics takes the cake with its beauty and ease of use — I just had to use it as the focus of my projects today.

Handmade card from Lisa Johnson featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

I love glitter. Yes, it might be silly at my age to be excited to play with it, but it’s a fact. When I saw this die, I mentally screamed “GLITTER!”. One of my favorite things to use in creating with glitter is sheet adhesive. I like to back window dies like this one and dump glitter all over it. I also press in the glitter to really make it set. It’s so pretty and sparkly in person!

Handmade card from Lisa Johnson featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

There are a few other fun layering elements that I’ve used today to frame the Snowflake Window on this card. Thank goodness for the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX and A2 Rectangle STAX that always come to mind for whimsical, yet classic cards. I’ve also used a sweet sentiment from the new Beautiful Blessings stamp set.

I decided to create this coordinating tag using the Tall Tag Duo and more glitter! I will write on it when I add it to a plate of cookies later this season.

I just love the cool and festive feel that Sno Cone Card Stock paired with Smooth White creates…crisp and clean!

Well, that’s a wrap for today. I hope that even if you aren’t a glitter gal, you’ll still give it a try. It makes this beautiful Snowflake Window Die-namics pop!


Now, it’s your turn. Grab some glitter (or if you’re glitter-averse, our glitter card stock is a great option – the new Color Celebration collection is packed with options!) and your favorite snowflake dies and see where the muse leads you. You can’t go wrong with glitter + snowflakes!

Spin the Wheel for a Big Surprise!

The new Peek-a-Boo Wheel Die-namics provides a fun opportunity to surprise your recipient with some unexpected results as they spin the wheel. This fun interactive design can be paired with an endless variety of images and greetings suitable for any occasion, and we can’t wait to to see all of your fun interpretations. Today though, we’re lucky to see what Kathrin has done with this inventive design.

For this card, I used the Beary Best Friends stamp set, and when I first saw it, I knew I wanted to combine it with the Peek-a-Boo Wheel Die-namics. It seems like these two friends have already caught a good amount of fish but what’s next on the hook? You can find out by turning the wheel!

Handmade card from Kathrin Donhauser-Ruth featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

I’ve created the background of the card by covering some regular white card stock with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink. Next, I glued the Snow-Capped Mountains, cut from shimmery grey and white card stock, onto the background. The water layer was cut from white card stock as well. I used one of the Ocean Waves Die-namics to cut the top border into a wave shape and then colored the white card stock using Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks. I also did some partial die cutting using the same wave border positioned a bit under the previously cut border so I could tuck the icebergs behind the waves. I die cut the icebergs from a light turquoise card stock and added some shadows using Copics.

From the bottom of the water layer, I die cut the oval window and notch that comes with the Peek-a-Boo Wheel. The wheel itself was cut from white card stock and colored using the same colors that I used for the water. The cute bears were colored with Copics using a white gel marker to add some highlights, and die-cut using the matching dies. I’ve lengthened the fishing line a bit, so I’ve cut that part by hand. I needed it long enough to reach the oval window. I’ve also stamped and die cut the buckets with fish and the ice floe. The fish in the water and the one on the Peak-a-Boo Wheel are from the Beary Best Friends stamp set as well. I love that these are three separate fish but using the matching die they get cut individually!

As I wanted this card to have a fun twist, I’ve only used one fish for the wheel and then added a pot, a coffee mug, and a rubber boot around the rest of the wheel. There are so many strange stories out there about things that people catch on fishing trips so why should it be different for bears? After putting the card together, I felt like something was missing on the bottom right of my card, so I’ve stamped one of the sayings from the Frosty Friends stamp set into that area.


Thank you to Kathrin for joining us — she’ll be back again soon with another humorous take on the November Release!
