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!

I stamped the Buffalo Plaid Background Stamp on Cherry Pop Cardstock with Sugar Cube Ink and embossed with TE White Embossing Powder. The beautiful Christmas Sleigh is stamped with the Sleigh Bouquet Stamp and colored with Copic Markers. 

The sleigh is die cut with the coordinating Sleigh Bouquet Die. I added a hill of snow with the new Build a Scene - Snow Drifts. Then I did a light splatter of white paint on the scene. The circle is cut with Stitched Circle Stacklets and framed with Petite Scallop Stacklets. The sentiment is from the stamp set and die cut with the Double Ended Flag Stacklets.

November Release Day at Pretty Pink Posh!

I am so excited to start sharing my projects I created with the November Holiday Release from Pretty Pink Posh. The release is combination of cute, elegant, and creative! My card today features the new Ornament Shaker Die.

I used the new Winter Days Confetti Mix to inspire the color theme. I cut a piece of white cardstock to fit the card front. Using a stencil brush and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink I brushed on the soft background and splattered white paint. Then I cut the Ornament Shaker Die directly into the card front and then again from Royal Blue Cardstock. I inlayed the ornament into the card front and added clear acetate and foam tape behind the die cut to foam the shaker. 

At the top I added the branches with the Pine Sprigs Die Set. I think the Pine Sprigs are perfect for creating Holiday and Winter Themed cards! The sentiments are from the Holiday Greetings Stamp Set

Thanks for stopping by! You can find all the new products HERE

Spellbinders Cut and Emboss Folders

Hi Everyone! Today I have two cards to share with you that I created with Spellbinders Cut and Emboss Folders. I think these folders are such a creative idea. They cut and emboss in one step! The embossing is beautiful with so much detail. These folders are perfect for mass producing cards beautiful and elegant cards.

My first card uses the Flora Banner Cut & Embossing Folder. I cut a piece of watercolor paper and ran it through my die machine with the Cut & Emboss Folder. Then I used a blending tool and sponged on Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, and Squeezed Lemonade. 

Here is closer look at the cut outs. I added a darker cardstock behind the cut outs to highlight the flowers. I added Pearl White Jewels to the center of the flowers. 

My next card features the Botanical Frame Cut & Embossing Folder. I used the same method as the first card to create the card front. Here I used Distress Inks in Ripe Persimmon, Orange Marmalade, Wild Honey, and Squeezed  Lemonade. 

I added a gold foil flower with the Shapeabilities Robin and Rosy Mug Etched Die Set. I added Metallic Gold Jewels to the center of these flowers. The sentiment on both cards is from the Taylored Expressions Friendly Phrases Stamp Set. 

Thanks for taking a look! These Emboss & Cut Folders are beautiful!
