The Huggable series is an adorable way to wrap up treats for birthdays, Valentine’s day, and more!  Each character from the Huggable series coordinates with the Tag Sale: Huggable die.  Use the stamps and dies from the Huggable Bear set to turn the tag base into a bear, panda, or polar bear.  Then wrap their arms to “hug” all sorts of treats including gift cards, candy, mason jars, and more – or use them to create adorable interactive tags and cards!

Now that we’ve made all of the formal introductions, let’s get onto the projects!

Betsy-Veldman

Betsy Veldman is featuring Huggables: Bear & Monkey mini kits + Pencil Arrows & Paper Sack Closure.

How fun are all of the options that the Huggables: Bear and Huggables: Monkey mini kits add to the Tag Sale: Huggable die? I love all of the personalized details that Betsy added, right down to the treat that they are holding.

Supplies:

  • STAMPS: Huggables: Monkey, Huggables: Bear
  • INK: True Black, Sweet Blush, Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Versamark
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Sweet Blush, Pure Poppy, True Black
  • DIES: Tag Sale: Huggable, Huggables: Monkey, Huggables: Bear, Matchbook Medley (heart), Grand Botanicals, Gathered Garden (leaves on chocolate rose)

 

Look how the Huggables mini kits coordinate with the new You Have My Heart collection! I can see a whole set of fun little notes for Valentine’s Day – or anytime of year. I especially love the monkey that’s perfectly color coordinated for Valentine’s Day.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Huggables: Bear, Huggables: Monkey, You Have My Heart
  • INK: Pure Poppy, True Black, Dark Chocolate, Aqua Mist, Soft Stone, Bright Buttercup
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Dark Chocolate, Kraft, Pure Poppy, Lovely Lady, Soft Stone, Bitty Big Kraft, Bitty Big Soft Stone, Bitty Big Pink Posey
  • DIES: Tag Sale: Huggable, Huggables: Monkey, Huggables: Bear, You Have My Heart, You Have My Heart Envelope die
  • OTHER: red baker’s twine, eyelets

 

There are so many great details that you can add to the Huggables animals to perfectly customize your project like Betsy did here. I love the Mix & Mat: Hearts background and how Betsy tucked one of the die cut hearts that was cut out of the card base into the bear’s paws.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Huggables: Bear
  • INK: True Black, Sweet Blush, Aqua Mist, Blueberry Sky
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Soft Stone, Aqua Mist
  • DIES: Huggables: Bear, Tag Sale: Huggable, Limitless Layers: 1-3/4” Circle, Mix & Mat: Hearts
  • OTHER: Copic markers, ink blending sponge

 

How ingenious is the new Pencil Arrows and Bag Slot Closure die collections?  They are so perfect for treat bags and favors. I love how Betsy used a paper straw for her arrow and bag closure on the pretty gold glitter bag. The pink and gold color combination is so elegant and fun at the same time.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Fun Lovin’
  • INK: Versamark
  • PAPER: Sweet Blush, Aqua Mist, Stamper’s Select White
  • DIES: Slot Closure, Pencil Arrows, Matchbox Medley, You Have My Heart
  • OTHER: gold glitter treat bags, gold striped straws, iridescent curling ribbon

 

Stephanie-Gold

Stephanie Gold is featuring Fun Lovin’ + Matchbook Medley.

Stephanie finds some great ways to think outside the box, like she did here to create the yellow chevron strip on her project with the ice cream cone image. The repeated stamping on the card base adds so much interest, but isn’t too busy because she used the same color ink as the cardstock for a tone on tone look.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Fun Lovin’
  • INK: New Leaf, Bright Buttercup, Raspberry Fizz
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White, New Leaf
  • DIES: Fun Lovin’
  • OTHER: Grey and White Twine, Pink and White Twine

 

How cute is this little matchbook card. It’s like a little gift itself that you untie and open to see what’s inside. I love the layered elements on the front and the custom pattern on the heart created with a sentiment stamp in the
Fun Lovin’ set.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Fun Lovin’
  • INK: Ocean Tides, Enchanted Evening, Simply Chartreuse
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White, Soft Stone, Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides, Simply Chartreuse, Enchanted Evening
  • DIES: Matchbook Medley
  • OTHER: Natural Twine

 

This clean and simple card has so much class. My favorite is how Stephanie die cut the sunglasses portion and then set the image down into the opening. It’s such a great way to do something a little different with your die cuts.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Fun Lovin’
  • INK: Pure Poppy, True Black
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White
  • DIES: Fun Lovin’
