Happy New Year Card

While Visions of Sugar Plums Danced in Their Heads…

YES, this is only some of what I have been baking for the past week. As I am typing (Sunday evening), I still have a pan of brownies to make (Monday), and a batch of pretzel rolls (Christmas morning – they have to be fresh).

PLEASE NOTE:  I have not started my holiday cards!  Nada, zilch, zippo. I do have a “Happy New Year” stamp, I am all set!

On this Christmas Eve, I wish you peace. May the magic of the season shine!

Pink Pirouette, Real Red, Wild Wasabi (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Reverse Confetti (holly, berries), Simon Says Stamp (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Checked Gift Tags

I allotted my morning time on Wednesday to gift tags, and I got 7 made, along with a note card.

This checked paper is from last year’s Crate Paper Falala pad.

Here are the backs of the tags.

You can see on the middle one there was a rogue dot from some other die cut – I got quite a nice impression.

The red snowflake is one out of the pile I had after finishing my parents’ Christmas cards.

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, paper – Crate Paper Falala, My Favorite Things Field Day, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (tag), My Favorite Things (outstitched rounded rectangle, snowflake), Reverse Confetti (holly), sequins – Doodlebug Designs, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, metallic cord – Paper Mart.

Christmas Around the World Quilted Gift Tags

I bought this paper on clearance, and now I am thinking that most of it is too dark. (and I don’t have any wrapping paper that it coordinates with – when has THAT ever stopped me??!).

ANYWAY, the tags are double sided. My photos don’t match because I forgot to take the photo of the back until after dinner (in the basement – not natural light!).  The paper is really white.

Supplies:  Stamps – Scrapbook.com, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Christmas Around the World DSP, Real Red, Stardream Metallics Gold, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things (hole protector), Reverse Confetti (quilted tag), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, metallic cord – Paper Mart, twine – Offray
