Hi there, it's Michelle and I'm back today to share with you how to use Label Stickers, stamps and other October Afternoon embellishments to create fun accent pieces for cards, scrapbook pages, and packaging. I'll be using a Label Stickers sheet from the Midway collection and all of the other stamps and embellishments are from the Woodland Park collection.
I started out by cutting my Labels Stickers sheet into three separate pieces to create 3 smaller sheets to work with. I selected small bits and pieces from my collection of buttons, brads and small paper embellishments. I also selected tiny stamps that would fit perfectly in the label shapes.
My end result is a set of three label sheets that are stamped, layered with die cuts, tied buttons and brads. These embellished label sheets can be used to create accents for cards, small journaling blocks for scrapbook pages and Project Life inserts or instant name tags to attach to wrapped gift boxes or bags.
All you have to do to use a label is peel it off the sheet and stick it to whatever you want. For the labels that have brads, I punched holes and attached the brads through the entire label sheet. Simply remove the brad from the sheet, peel off the label and reattach the brad to the finished project.
You can create flat labels by using stamps only. If you want a dimensional look, add details like brads, stitching, tied buttons and pop dots to attach embellishments.
This is a great way to use all the little tidbits and small items from your stash of October Afternoon goodies. Here's a card and coordinating envelope that I created with one of my embellished labels. I created my card base using Woodland Papers, a chipboard accent and Washi tape. The postage stamp piece is stamped with images from the Woodland Park stamps. I added some small staples to my embellished label and then added it as a finishing touch along with some baker's twine. I love to create coordinating envelopes so I used Washi tape and more stamps on the front of the envelope. Washi tape is great for envelopes because it stays adhered and is very flat for mailing.
Hope you enjoy. Please visit my blog to see how I created some unique packaging for my embellished labels. These make perfect little gifts for crafty friends. Enjoy!
