Christmas tags

Tags are a fun and quick way to use up scraps.  I found everything to make these tags in my scrap bucket - even the baker's twine pieces!

The stamp set I used is in the annual catalog, and it's called Lovely Labels.  It has labels for all occasions, but of course I used the Christmas stamps.  Use the Everyday label punch, and you've got got it made.  The bottom of the banners are made with the Banner Triple punch.

Cookie Cutter Christmas

I hadn't made anything with the gingerbread men from the Cookie Cutter Christmas, so when I was designing projects for this year's Christmas stamp camp, I decided to put him to work and came up with this fun treat box.




The box is made from the white mini gable treat boxes.  I decorated it with Under the Mistletoe DSP and a couple adorable gingerbread men on the front.  Fill it with something yummy and you've got the perfect gift!

Tin Tile Customer Tags

This month's customer orders will be tied together with tags made with the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Country Home stamp set, both from the great new Holiday catalog.


These tags are so cute, and SO country!  After I ran the cardstock through the embossing folder, I sponged ink over them so the pattern popped out more.

The flowers took a little time to cut out, but I think it was worth it because they stand out so great on the tile background.

I wrapped some retired baker's twin around each tag before I adhered the flowers to it, then used the same twine on the top of the tag.


I first lighted sponged Crumb Cake ink on this Balmy Blue tag, then decided to go a little darker and used black to really make the design pop.


The new galvanized foil paper looks awesome with the Tin Tile embossing folder.  I wanted to "age" it a little, so I sponged black ink over it.

Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder







I posted both of these cards earlier when I was showing what we were doing at September's stamp class.  Class was awesome, and they loved this new embossing folder.  But what I didn't do at class was spritz the cardstock with water before running it through the folder. Watch what happens!

Tranquil Tide Deer

The Dashing Deer stamp and coordinating framelits have many different shaped and sized deer to create wonderful cards with.


For this fun card I used Tranquil Tide ink and cardstock, Merry Merlot ink and cardstock and Joyeous Noel DSP.  The card is a single piece of cardstock scored so the edges fold back and the center pops to the front.


These are the two Dashing Deer cards together.  Two every different, but very pretty Christmas cards.
