If you follow along regularly, you know my sentiment tag box is one of my favorite time savers in my craft area. I love craft room organization tips like this – just keep prepped sentiment tags in a tackle box and have them ready to finish your lovely card projects! I’ve been playing around with another way to prep a lot of tags and add them to my sentiment box and I want to share it with you today. I used the Stampin Up Conversation Bubbles bundle to create these adorable tags. Keep reading to see how I made a lot of these tags in a short amount of time!
My Sentiment Tag Box
I created this box several years ago to organize prepared sentiment tags by category – birthday, thanks, thinking of you, congrats, etc. It’s such a time saver when I need to make a card in a hurry! I’ve used several methods to ‘stock’ the box with tags such as this one and this one.
Now I’m excited to be adding a lot of fun, cutesy conversation bubble tags to my assortment.
Stampin Up Conversation Bubbles Bundle
Here is the bundle I used to create my new assortment of tags. You can stamp and cut them out individually as with any die set, but I’ll share a shortcut to create a lot of tags quickly below.
Here you can see a few simple cards I’ve created with the Conversation Bubbles die cuts and Taco Fiesta stamps. Aren’t they cute?
Here’s a really basic card! Quick and easy!
Creating Tags Fast
Here’s how to use this bundle to create tags fast:
1. Layer two pieces of cardstock measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ onto your die cutting platform base. Put all dies on top, and crank through your machine. Remove die cuts and separate them into groups of each shape. Repeat as many times as desired with several colors of cardstock.
2. Cut dies from a piece of cardstock that fits the base of your Stamparatus. Lay this template and a piece of grid paper into the base of the Stamparatus.
3. Place stamps over top of the holes, lining them up as well as possible.
4. Lower the clear plate to pick up the stamps.
5. Ink stamps with a light color of ink and stamp onto grid paper.
6. Check alignment of stamps with the die cuts. If any stamps are misaligned, remove those stamps, line them up again with the die cut holes, and try again.
Test stamp with a different color of ink and check alignment.

7. When stamps are aligned properly, begin putting the die cuts into the holes. Fill each hole, then ink the stamps and stamp. This is where it gets fun!
8. Remove stamped die cuts (I love to use my Take Your Pick tool), place new cuts in the holes and stamp again.
9. Repeat until all die cuts are stamped, or leave some blank and add other sentiments to them.
Switch Up The Sentiments
If you prefer to use different sentiment stamps, or just want a bigger variety, you can use other stamps with the die cuts. You can line them up on the Stamparatus as described above, or leave the cut pieces blank and just stamp one tag at a time as needed.
