Christmas Tags

Once again I used the Label me Pretty stamp set and coordinating punch, which makes it super easy to make tags, quickly.  I also used a tag set from last year to cut out the circle tag behind the Santa paper, which is retired.  I used the Stitched Framelits to cut it out and had it laying on my table, so easy peasy!

I used the Layering Oval Framelits to make the Label Me Pretty tag with Gold Foil.  The baker's twine is retired.

Thank you for coming by to see my creations, I appreciate it so very much!  Mary

Cookie Cutter Christmas

I've been trying to make some tags for my daughter to use, as she likes to make her Christmas gifts, which I think is wonderful!  She was busy canning this past summer when the vegetables and fruit were in season and plentiful too.  I've had some of her goodies and they are delicious too!

I decided to pull out this stamp set and give it a go, I think they turned out rather nicely too.

Here is what I used:

Stamp set: Cookie Cutter Christmas
Punch: Cookie Cutter Builder and Scalloped Tag Topper punch
Inks: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Black Memento
Card Stock: Real Red, Whisper White and Crumb Cake
Red Glimmer paper
Baker's twine-retired

These were really fun to make!  Mary

Winter Wishes

Well I got back yesterday from Salt Lake City after attending OnStage with my fellow demonstrators and I think you will be very pleased with the new Occasions catalog that will be coming next year!

I'm still trying to make the last few Christmas cards that I need and will soon start addressing them so I can send them out on December 1st, yeah!!

For this card I case'd a demonstrator, Christine Miller.  She use this stamp set and made a gift tag with it, I decided to make a card instead!  This stamp set is retired, unfortunately.

I just happened to have the embossed background piece already done, so it didn't take to long to make this card.  Wish this set was still current, it makes a very nice card!

Here is what I used:

Stamp sets: Winter Wishes and Versatile Christmas, both retired
Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Soft Suede and Early Espresso
Card stock: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Whisper White
DSP: Warmth & Cheer-retired
Woodland Embossing Folder
Banner punch, Petite Petal-retired
Basic Rhinestone
