Last Christmas Card of the Season

Hi All! Today I am sharing my last Christmas card for this year. I am always a little sad when holiday creating season comes to an end. My card today is created with the Pretty Pink Posh Decorative Ornaments Stamp Set and the Decorative Ornaments Coordinating Dies.


I stamped the ornaments in black hybrid ink and colored the ornaments with Copic Markers. I covered the ornaments with a coat of Versamark Ink and the embossed with a Diamond Embossing Powder. I love the effect! Behind the ornaments I stenciled sun rays and stamped a sentiment from the Holiday Greetings Stamp Set. 


At the top I added branches from the Winter Woodland Stamp Set and hung the ornaments with twine. The frame is die cut with the Stitched Notes Dies. I finished off the card with a few sequins from the Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix

Plaid Christmas Tags

Hi and thanks for stopping by today! I have four Christmas Tags I created to share with you. The products are from Taylored Expressions. I love the the Buffalo Plaid Background Stamp. I have used this stamp on so many projects already. Here I used the stamp for the background of my tags.


I die cut the base of my tags with the Tag Stacklets 2. I layered the Buffalo Plaid on Oreo Cardstock. I punched a small hole at the top of each tag and used Gold Twine to tie the tags to a gift. 


I used the Flip the Script - Tree Tag and Stamp Die Combo for two of my tags. On the first tag I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink on Cilantro Cardstock and embossed with TE White Embossing Powder and then used the tree die to die cut the tree. 


On the second tag I stamped the tree, with the sentiment in the negative, in Versamark Ink and embossed with TE White Embossing Powder. The reindeer is die cut from Gold Foil with the Little Bits - Reindeer Die. 


My second tag uses the Flip the Script - Snowman Tag Stamp & Die Combo. I used the same process I used for the tree, stamping the Snowman with the sentiment in the negative and then just the sentiment. 


The hat is included in the die set. The flowers is die cut with the Little Bits - Holiday Bloomers. 

I can't wait to tie this tags on my Christmas packages! The tags inspired by Christmas wrapping theme this year!
