Glitter Christmas Tree Tags

So this week I’ve started my Christmas gift wrapping and these glittery Christmas Tree Tags are adorning some of them.  They’re quick to make and you can get eight from on sheet of A4 so cost effective too.

I’ve used Real Red and Shaded Spruce for that traditional Christmas feel. Firstly cut your cardstock in half on the short edge so you have two have eachmeasuring 105.cm in width. Now cut four tags from each half wth a width of 5cm each. At 5cm they will easily slide into the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, giving a decorative top for each tag. To finish off the base of your tags use the Detailed Trio Punch to round off the bottom two corners.

Real Red Christmas Tree Tags

I used the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set to add a greeting to the bottom of each tag. I did use the Golden Glitz Delicata Ink, which is sadly no longer available but I’m hoping most of you were able to get your hands on it. On the back of each tag I used the to/from stamp with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink so its easier to label.

For the Real Red Tag I used the Pine Tree Tag to punch trees from the Gold Glimmer paper and decorated them with Real Red Rhinestones and topped with a star from the Most Wonderful Time Medley which was coloured Real Red with a Stampin’ Blends Marker. I topped these tags with some Gold Metallc Edged Ribbon which is Very Vanilla in colour.

Shaded Spruce Gift Tags

For the Shaded Spruce Tags I used Real Red Glimmer paper for the Christmas trees. I decorated these trees with the tinsel ribbon again from the Most Wonderful Time Medley and topped with one of the gold stars. These tags were finished off with some of 3/8″ Real Red cotton ribbon.

Hope you enjoyed todays project and have a go at making your own gift tags.

Simple Foiled Merry Christmas Card

If you’ve not yet finished making your Christmas cards or you need to whip up a few extra really quick then this is the card for you.

I used the From Our House to Yours stamp set to create this little scene. The stamps are photopolymer so they line up really easily making stamping a scene quick and enjoyable. If your making a lot the using the Stampatratus is a good idea.

I stamped my scene on the 6cm square dies from the Layering Squares Dies and matted it onto the scalloped version which is slightly bigger.

Foiled Our House Merry Christmas -flat

To make this card really pop I’ve used some of the Noble Peacock Foil and run it through the Hammered Embossing folder which is part of the Brightly Gleaming Suite. I love this embossing folder as it creates a subtle but really effective background. I’ve also added a little bit of Cherry Cobbler Diagonal Striped Ribbon across the top of the card behind my little scene.

To change up this card you can easily change the foil colour and embossing folder to create many different background effects.

Poinsettia Pillow Box

Today I’m sharing a simple idea to decorate our Kraft Pillow Boxes using a punch and some paper.

To make this Poinsettia flower simply punch six baubles from the larger punch from the Gleaming Ornaments Punch pack. I chose to use the Cherry Cobbler paper from the Christmastime Is Here Speciality DSP.  Scrunch each “petal” up to give that crinkly effect which Pionsettia’s have.

Poinsettia Pillow Box 1

Adhere all the red petals to a 1/2″ punched circle, overlapping each one a little. punch out another 1/2″ circle is Whisper white and adhere to the front of the flower. Cover this circle with the largest Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to create the centre of the flower.

Punch and scrunch three green petals and add them to the back of the flower to create leaves.

Poinsettia Pillow Box 2

I added a length of Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the kraft pillow box and then adhered the Poinsettia to the top.

This makes the perfect little box for those small Christmas gifts or gift cards. I also love that these little boxes are small enough to hide amoung your Christmas tree branches if you want to make a few.

Tis the Season for Santa Christmas Card

With the countdown on and the big day only a month away it seemed fitting to share a project featuring Santa himself today.

This cute card combines products from the Night Before Christmas suite and a background created with the Winter Knit 3D Embossing folder.

Colouring with the stampin’ Blends has brought Santa to life and few of the Snowflake Sequins has added a little sparkle to this festive card.

A Holiday Hello From #Elfie

I’ve pulled out my Stampin’ Blends for today’s card and coloured the largest image from the #Elfie stamp set. This is one of those images which can fill a whole card front so you really don’t need much else.

I’ve used a little bit of the Wrapped In Plaid DSP as a background which I also used as a basis for my main colour scheme of Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce and Night of Navy.

I’m spending the afternoon curled up by my fire watching Christmas movies and colouring more elves. Hope you have chance to have some crafty time this weekend.

Tailored Tag Patchwork Background Christmas Card

I’ve wanted to make a card with a patchwork background created with the Tailored Tag punch ever since I bought which was, a long time ago. Finally I’ve pulled out the Christmastime Is Here Speciality DSP and created this christmas card.

I used 18 punch out tags in four different designs, but you can use any number of patterns you like, just try not to put the same patterns next to each other when you form your patchwork. I adhered these by using Liquid Glue on the card base.

Tailored Tag Patchwork Background Christmas Card

I added a little swirl of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon to add some interest and then placed the large label from the Roses dies over the top with the greeting stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I finished with some of my favourite Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.

The Christmastime Is Her suite is only available until the end of the month so if you still thinking about purchasing these products you only have a few days left, I’m just debating how many extra packets of Gold Glitter Enamel Dots I should order.
