3 Twenty Crafts - Tags & Trimmings

Good afternoon and a big welcome to our 4th and final day of Jo’s Scrap Shack’s Surprise Blog Hop!

All week long the design team and I have been showing stamp sets from a new company - 3 Twenty Crafts
. We hope you have had fun hopping along all week with us and enjoyed all the wonderful projects that the design team created. Remember that all the stamp sets you saw this week will be available to purchase today at 3pm and will be shipping on Monday.

Today we are showing you the new and awesome stamp set “Tags and Trimmings


 
 
Here is my card created using this stamp set

  


This was a pretty fast card, once I remembered I had some Paper Cuts card blanks purchased years ago. The longest part of the process was trying to find the card blanks! When I saw this stamp set, I knew the tiny images were perfect for this type of card, for inchies,  stamping on tags...very versatile. I chose the candy cane & ornament, stamping them with Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink.* Easily colored the red stripes with copics; covered that with a red Silver Star gel pen for sparkle, then a white touch with a Signo pen for highlights. Added the bows after adhering the circles to card. 


Ornament stars colored with Spica gold, then a yellow Silver Star pen. Colored remaining space with Clear Silver Star - so lots of sparkle. Easy & fast. Santa was colored with the Red Silver Star too. All these little motifs were punched out with an appropriately sized SU round punch, adhered to inside card base. Card  insert will cover this & provide a finished surface. A tiny circle mat frame around the motif would have been pretty, but as is usual with me, the idea came after I had the first image affixed. Well, there's always next time, cause for sure, these little goodies will get used again. The tiny tag & sentiment were stamped with Colorbox ink & hand cut; the larger sentiment from the set was stamped on an MStewart pre-made tag. MS border punches from a 6x6 American Crafts Kringle & Company pack  & green rhinestones finished off this card.

*Got a tip to try sanding clear stamps before first use with a fine grit sand paper - so used the TH sander to sand the stamps lightly before inking. This is a good tip to get crisper images and one I had forgotten. Just something to keep in mind.

This is my project for today, concluding our week long blog hop. I have had so much fun playing with these lovely new stamps.  I hope you enjoyed all the different ways each Team Member presented their projects with the stamps.  Good luck to each of you in the random draw to win a set of the stamps presented during the blog!!

Cute card, Mary, and a great way to use those stamps. The "Tags and Trimmings" set sure has a lot of stamps. I really like the candy canes. And, the MS sentiment tag is great.
Informative tip about the sanding of the clear stamps. I always use a Staedtler Mars plastic eraser. It does a good job, too.

Great card!

Those little images make for some fun cards and I like how the circles are already placed on the cardstock, making it simple to center them! The scalloped circle mat that matches the top horizontal border really pulls this all together nicely! Well done!
