Happy Holidays!

Hi All!  I am popping in with another Holiday card today. I went a less traditional color scheme for this card, green, pink and white. I used products from Pretty Pink Posh with the Stitched Poinsettias Dies for the center piece of my project.

I cut the Stitched Poinsettias Dies from white cardstock and sponged on just a small amount of pink ink. I layered the three die cuts and then added three Lemon Drop Jewels to the center of the flower and added the leaves. 

I used the Christmas Background Stencil with green ink on white cardstock for the background. I added machine stitching down each side and pink lace across the card. The sentiment is from the Holiday Greetings Stamp Set

Believe In The Magic of Christmas

Thanks for stopping by today! I have another gift giving idea for you with the All Tucked In Christmas Stamp Set from the Taylored Expressions November Mini Release. The stamp set coordinates with the previously released All Tucked In Die and All Tucked In Windows.

A handmade card and box full of treats makes a great gift for all the people in your life that you want  to let them know that you are thinking of them this holiday season.

I created the background of the my card with the small Christmas stamps in the All Tucked In Christmas Stamp Set. I used Blueberry, Cherry Pop, and Cilantro Ink on Toffee Cardstock. The Season's Greeting sentiment is also included in the stamp set. 

The center sentiment is from the Handlettered Holiday 2 Stamp Set. I stamped in Versamark Ink and embossed with TE White Embossing Powder. I die cut the sentiment with the Stitched Circle Stacklet and matted the circle with Petite Scallop Circle Stacklets. The flowers and greenery are die cut with the Winter Greens Die Set. 

The All Tucked In Die and All Tucked In Windows make this treat box easy to create. I die cut the box with the  All Tucked In Die and then added the stamped images to the background with the All Tucked In Christmas Stamp Set.

Tag Team Christmas Kit with Taylored Expressions

Hi Everyone! It is definitely the beginning of gift giving season and this month Taylored Expressions is having a Mini Release with that in mind! Over the next three days we will be sharing projects and products to give your gifts the handmade touch which makes a gift even more special! Today I will be sharing quick and easy gift tags created with the new Tag Team Christmas Kit.

The kit includes a clear stamp, coordinating set of 3 tag dies, red/white twine, eyelets, and cardstock to create up to 30 tags for quick and easy mass-production of tags. The sentiments are a great mix of traditional Christmas greetings and fun, "make you smile" sayings. 

There are so many combinations of stamps to make your tags in the stamp set. The tags can be coordinated to match your wrapping paper. I went with a mix of Watermelon, Granny Smith, Peapod, Confetti Cake, and Oreo Ink. 

I stamped on the patterns in the stamp set at the end of the tags and then the sentiment. I added an eyelet from the kit to each end and then string the twine through to the eyelet. 

On the back of each tag I stamped "To" and "From" in Oreo Ink.

Wishing You A Blessed Holiday Season

Hi All! I am building my stash of Christmas cards! Today I have a card I created with the Amaryllis Stamp Set from Pretty Pink Posh. I used a mix of Kraft, red, and green.

I stamped the flowers and leaves in the Amaryllis Stamp Set, colored with Copic Markers, and die cut with the Amaryllis Coordinating Dies. To create the background, I cut a piece of Kraft Cardstock for the card front. Then I used the Snowflakes Stencil with a Kraft ink to stencil the snowflakes. I splattered the background with white paint and sponged the edges of the card front with white ink. 

The sentiment is from the Joy Stamp Set. I stamped in Versamark Ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I finished off the card with a few white sequins in the Merry Confetti Mix. I like the mix of the earthy colors! 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend.
