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

Two Layer Holiday Tags

(click on any image to enlarge)

I invested in a new die set from My Favorite Things called Fold-Up Tags. What is unique with this set is that the top layer dies (3 with different bottom edge cuts) have a score line near the top that lets you fold back the top layer (neatly!) to see what is underneath after the top and bottom layers are glued together.

I used scraps from Crate Paper, Lawn Fawn, and…hmmm…that blue glitter snowflake paper…Recollections, maybe?

On the base layers I stamped “to: from”.

Supplies:  Stamps – Scrapbook.com, paper – Crate Paper FaLaLa, Lawn Fawn, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Recollections glitter (maybe!), Silver Mirror, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Real Red, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, metallic cord – Paper Mart, twine -Offray.

A Friend Like You Card

This is another great sentiment from Gina K. Designs.

I am not sure how I embossed the background (it was in my scrap folder) – I think I stamped in Deep Lagoon and then embossed with Silver Pearl powder.

There Is No One Like You Note Card

This stamp set was on my craft table (I had used one of the sentiments on another card), and the little fairy spoke to me – “Stamp me, please!”

Her wings are covered with Wink of Stella clear – I just couldn’t get the sparkle to show in the photo.

Baby Girl Onesie Note Card

Can you see I got a new baby related die (the onesie)? There is a stamp set that coordinates with it, but I thought it would be cute to have a customized baby girl onesie today.

I am working HARD on getting my inventory packaged, priced, counted, entered into multiple Excel files (gallery required one, my own) for HorseSpirit Arts Gallery delivery on Monday.

Have a good weekend!

Pink Survivor Card

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I would make a card to send to one of the survivors I know.

I made a collage on my MISTI, and stamped it 3 times to get the perfect ink coverage. (And that is why my Pixie Pink ink looks more like Pink Passion ink!)
