Make It Monday #42

Wednesday, November 23, 2011


This week's Make It Monday challenges us to use sentiment stamps as part of our background.  This was the perfect inspiration for me to create a card and wine tag for a little hostess gift for Thanksgiving. 



I don't have the special wine bottle die.  I just cut the strip 3 inches wide.  Cut the triangle out of the bottom and used the Limitless Layers die to cut a hole. Really easy!



This is the first set I ever bought from Papertrey Ink, First Fruits, and I still love it!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!



Cardstock: PTI Dark Chocolate, Rustic Cream, Ripe Avocado
Stamps: PTI First Fruits
Ink: Memento Brown and Rhubarb  PTI Tea Dye Duo and Ripe Avocado
Dies: PTI Mat Stack Dies, Limitless Layers
Other: Ribbon, Scarlet Jewel Buttons

  16. Great tags perfect for those wine bottle gifts! Congrats on winning PTI's MIM. Have fun choosing your stamp set prize. Why is it so hard? Too many on the wish list I guess. Congrats, Kara!

  17. First Fruits is one of my favorite sets too! It's so timeless and elegant. I thought the paper you used was patterned paper. The random stamping looks great. You're right that there is no need to buy the wine tag, I bought it anyway, but yours looks really great. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
