Introducing Celebrations

Happy New Year! I know I’ve been gone for far too long, but I’m back with a few projects to share for Papertrey Ink’s January release. It’s Day 2 of the Papertrey Ink Countdown and I have the privilege of sharing projects featuring Celebrations stamp set and coordinating die designed by Dawn McVey. Dawn already has started posting some super cute cards on her blog, so please take a look! You will not want to miss out on this amazing set, which will be available to purchase on January 15. So, let’s get started!

Have you ever wanted to make your own fun labels for bottled beverages? Well, with this stamp set, it’s super easy and fun to do! I made a few for a pomegranate sparkling beverage pack of four in a jiff! Check out some images and photos on how I did it!

First, trim a cardstock strip to make a belly band. I trimmed mine to 1″ x 6.5″ I added some adhesive and simply wrapped it around the bottle. I allowed the front to have an empty space since the self-adhesive label will cover the logo.

Die cut the shapes from self-adhesive paper, then stamp the images and sentiments. I repeated this step four times for each of my bottles.

Remove the backing from the adhesive label.

Affix the label to the bottle overlaying the existing beverage logo.

Adhere the label to the center first, then smooth outwards to the left and right to prevent wrinkles.

Add ribbon to bottle neck and die cut paper mums from patterned paper.

Add buttons to the paper mum centers.

Add adhesive to the back of each flower.

Adhere the flower to the bottle and lay horizontal to dry for a few minutes.

Super easy, right?! Transform regular bottled beverages into fun and festive party decor for any event. This sentiment, along with many more in the set can be used alone for so many occasions.

This card was so much fun to create! The large sentiments in this set can be stamped to create your own patterned paper. I chose to use the same ink color on kraft cardstock, but other possibilities are endless.

This set can coordinate well with other sets to add additional images to compliment the exciting occasion.

Stamp sentiments on card front with vintage cream ink.


Stamp sentiment on vintage cream cardstock strip, then trim pennant notch. Adhere to card front with foam adhesive.


Stamp cap on vintage cream cardstock, hand cut, and adhere to card front with foam adhesive.


Add ribbon treatment.


For this card, I used a negative die cut from patterned paper to showcase the stamp. I added some ribbon and patterned paper borders. To see more on how I created this card, you can check out the video below!

    As to your cards & such. LOVE!!! I really love the graduation card as my baby is graduating this year, sob-sob! He is such a great young man, I will miss him so much. Lucky for me the University of Kansas, Rock Chalk KU (sorry for that) is just 30 minutes from home so he won’t be far. Anyway, I will be needing a lot of cards for him, and his friends, so thanks for the inspiration.
    I might steal the Izze idea for his party, If I can find the time 😉
