I’ve been asked to come up with some tag ideas for my kids school auction. Each year, they make HUGE theme gift baskets and auction them off in a fun live auction along with other amazing items such as Ottawa Senators tickets, a trip to New York, room carpeting, appliances, etc. (Last year they raised over $35, 000-isn’t that amazing?!) Oh, and of course, there’s always an awesome scrapbooking and stamping basket donated by me.
Here’s the first example I came up with.
Recipe: Basic Black CS, Basic Grey CS, White Craft Ink, Baroque Motifs stamp set
This second tag was inspired by StampGroover on SCS, she created a really cute card using this idea and it was perfect for creating this tag. BTW, our auction has a New York City Theme.
Recipe: Night of Navy CS, Basic Black CS, WW CS, Wondrous Gift stamp set (stars), 1″ circle punch, 1/16th circle handheld punch
So, which one do you like best??? Leave me a comment to let me know!

This tip was shared by a very smart demonstrator, Debbie Moczek about cutting ribbon!
Here’s what she said: “I took a box and cut it into different size strips starting at 2” all the way up to 12”. When I am planning for a class or stamp-a-stack it makes things so much faster. I made the strips 2” wide too so the ribbon stays on well. You can cut about 25 at a time which means 50 pieces of the length you need. FAST AND EASY—–and boy what a time saver.”
What a great tip for saving time, I love it!
Happy Stamping, Josee

To achieve the 2 colours on the butterfly, I used the “Rock ‘n Roll” technique.
First, you ink the stamp in the lighter colour, then ink the edges of the stamp on a darker colour rocking it around so you are only touching the edges! I love this technique, so fun and simple!
Of course, the butterfly was also calling out for glitter!
Happy Stamping! Josee
