Creative Construction with Blueprints – Holiday Tags


We love Blueprints because they take the guesswork out of crafting beautiful cards (and tags!) in quick fashion when we’re short on time or inspiration. We also love them for their versatility and ability to be mixed and matched when we have the time and inspiration to create something truly unique. Our Creative Construction Challenge focuses on these attributes each month, challenging the team to either assemble a card based on one of the provided Blueprints sketches or design an original design combining elements from the featured Blueprints.

Did you know you can find ALL of our printable Blueprints sketches in one spot? Our Printable Resources section over there in the sidebar is packed with handy reference materials including Blueprints.

Adding a handmade touch is a wonderful way to personalize your thoughtful gifts. Stocking up on holiday tags is a fun, quick, and easy way to prepare for the gift giving season that is about to commence. Join us this month as we look at holiday tags featuring Blueprints.

Handmade card from Donna Mikasa featuring Gift Tag Greetings stamp set, Merry Everything stamp set and Die-namics, Distressed Stripes Background stamp, and Tag Builder Blueprints 1 Die-namics #mftstamps

Donna crafts up some cute and traditional tags with the Tag Builder Blueprints 1 Die-namics and the Merry Everything stamp set. She adds subtle interest to the background of the tag with the Distressed Stripes Background stamp. Stamp up a bunch of festive characters, die cut, and color, and you’re halfway to adorable handmade tags!

Handmade card from Anna Kossakovskaya featuring Winter Wonderland stamp set, Simply Snowflakes and Birdie Brown Beast Friends stamp sets and Die-namics, Tag Builder Blueprints 5, and Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics #mftstamps

Anna’s tags feature a less traditional color combination for the holidays, but GOSH, they are pretty! She used both the Tag Builder Blueprints 5 and Tag Builder Blueprints 6 to create these festive gift toppers. Browse our entire collection of Tag Builder Blueprints Die-namics and coordinating stamp set to find the set that’s right for you. You probably need them all, right?

    I love making my own tags to add to parcels. The ones by Donna Mikasa would be perfect for using up all the stamped images I love to colour.
