Candycane tag 2A Gift tags don’t have to be fancy – a bit of card stock, a small piece of ribbon or cording,  and maybe some designer paper and you are set!!!  Here we see samples done simply in red and white.  It’s time for you to show your creativity!

 

 

 

 

IMG_1385Gift tags don’t have to be big!  This small tag uses the 1 3/8” scallop square and  1 1/4” square punches.  A small holiday image and some twine finishes off this tag which is perfect for a small holiday gift!  This tag takes a mere 2 minutes to create but is a small gift from the heart.  How about 10 of these placed in a cellophane bag and tied with a cheery bow – a great gift for a friend.  You could do this same tag with the scallop circle and circle punches!

Holiday gift tags don’t have to be in traditional Christmas colors.  This playful pink tag is edged in red marker and decorated with lacy snowflakes highlighted with rhinestones.

The gift tags above are 4 more of the projects we will be making at the December 3rd and 4th Tags and More Stamp Camp.  More projects to come…. Don’t forget to let me know if you will be coming.  So far we have 4 folks for Friday and 2 for Saturday.  Plenty of space remains!!!! 

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving.  I am not cooking as hubby is treating the family to dinner at the Bolingbrook Golf Club.  I will enjoy this immensely as I AM NOT DOING THE COOKING!!!

Snowman tag 2

I love this darling Snowman tag!  Once again – we use punches for everything including the holly tucked into the brim of the little black hat.  I decided at the last minute to add a bit of blush to the snowman’s cheeks so I rubbed my little finger lightly on the Regal Rose stamp pad and added the color literally by hand (or would that be by finger!)

This is another tag we will be making at our Holiday Tags & More Stamp Camp on December 3rd and 4th.  Stay tune for more tags to come….

Holiday Tags and More

Penguin tag 1

Well, I am really having a time trying to figure out my blog settings.  I am not the most technical person in the world and the headings have changed so I am basically lost!  Anyway, no matter what, Christmas is coming and so is the Holiday Tags & More Stamp Camp!  The tags start here!  The first 4 tags to be featured are all done with punches, punches and more punches!  We see the Warm Wishes Penguin and Rudolph the Reindeer here.  These tags are fun to make and OH so CUTE!  The next picture shows the inside of the tag – you just flip the top tag away, and write your sentiment on the next layer.

These are two of the tags that will be featured at the Holiday Tags & More Stamp Camp on Friday December 4th (4 p.m. – ???) and Saturday December 5th (9 a.m. – ???).  The cost has not been finalized but will be between $10 and $12.  My hubby keeps asking me what we will be making and my response is  – “I don’t know yet!”  In addition to tags, we will be creating three different holders for gift cards/cash, plus a holiday milk carton.  One of our tags will be a snow globe – my project for tomorrow!  I know many people are busy this first weekend of December!  I would be very helpful if you would let me know if  you are coming.  I know several are unable to attend, but I don’t want to cut paper for 10-12 if 5-6 plan on attending. So…PLEASE let me know if you are coming (www.paperrose01@aol.com

Stay tuned for more tags tomorrow!!!

Snowy Snowflakes

Snowflake Best

All right, I will admit this is a lame name for this beautiful card, but it’s late and when I’m tired, the brain loses creativity.  Although you can’t tell from the picture, this card is actually Bashful Blue – NOT white.  Debbie’s color scheme was Pacific Point and Bashful Blue – a stunning combination.  She used the Northern Flurries Embossing Folder ($7.95, Page 26 in the Holiday Mini) with rhinestones centered in the snowflake centers.  The 4 photo corner punches highlight the card.  The ever-popular Decorative Label is perfect for the message and a rhinestone “dots” the “I”.  Finally, a tiny silver bow and several sprays of our glimmer mist homebrew spray finish the card – simple, but very elegant.

This is the final card for our November 5th and 6th Holiday Frenzy Stamp Camp – 6 cards for $14.00.  Hope to see you there.  Now it’s time to plan for the December Tags & More Stamp Camp.  Rumor has it that in additional to tags, we will also be doing the Sweet Snow globe ($8.95, Page 41 in the Holiday Mini).

MERRY CRITTERMAS

Merry Crittermas bestThis is my favorite card for children.  Debbi and I make about 100 Christmas cards for my Mother and we always need cards for her little friends.  There are 7 little critters in this Merry Crittermas stamp set ($17.95, Page 39 in the holiday mini) so we can stamp different images for the children.  I’ve used the Candy Cane Christmas Designer Series Paper as well as the Scallop Trim Border punch and the Eyelet Border Punch.  I used the ornament die from last season’s pop-up tree die set, and and a bit of silver tinsel trim to balance out the card.  The cat and tree are colored with Stampin’ Pastel chalks with Smooch to decorate the tree and song book.  A rhinestone rests atop the tree.  I set the chalk by spraying the completed scallop circle with the shimmer paint homebrew glimmer spray.  Then I decided I should spray the ornaments too so there is LOTS of shimmer.

One more Holiday Frenzy card left!  Don’t forget – the Holiday Frenzy Stamp Camp is this coming weekend – Nov 5th and 6th.  Remember to let me know if  you are planning to attend.  6 beautiful cards with pearls, rhinestones, shimmery spray and all with envelopes you design to coordinate with the cards – all for $14.00. 

Christmas Trees

Red and Green tree good

This is a holiday card done with the Mover and Shaper die.  First we adhered Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper to our 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Then we ran it through the Big Shot using the tree centered on the Mover and Shaper die.  We adhered the tree right through the tree opening like a puzzle piece.  Then we cut 2 additional trees – 1 Cherry Cobbler and 1 Always Artichoke – on the tree die and added tiny bows.  Finally, we sprayed the card with the Shimmer Paint spray we made with the paint and alcohol.  It is difficult to see the shimmer in the picture.

Red trees best

We also repeated the same card using a different pattern of the Deck the Halls paper.  Here, we die but both trees out of Cherry Cobbler.  The trees can be mixed and can even be decorated with Stickles or Smooch to add decoration.  The cards are much more striking than the pictures suggest,

This Mover and Shaper card is another sample of the 6 cards we will be making at our Holiday Frenzy Stamp Camp on November 5th and 6th.  Don’t forget to let me know if you will be coming!

I’m off to help get the house ready for our Halloween Open House.  To you and  yours, I offer a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
