My first project for today uses the adorable new stamp set called Joyous Holiday. I had so much fun creating this card! To begin, I did some ink blending on a panel of white cardstock measuring 4 by 5 1/4 inches using Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress Oxide ink. Once that was done, I gave it a good spritz of Shimmer Spray; this particular bottle is almost gone, and it gives clumpy sprays, but since I knew it did this, I picked it on purpose because it worked well for the look I was going for.
Once the blending was done, I used the new All The Stars Confetti Cuts to die cut the stars at the top! I am in love with it and have a feeling you all will be "seeing stars" for weeks to come! LOL!
Once that was done, I added the new Rounded Stitched Window Confetti Cuts die cut to the center of the card using foam squares. I mentioned yesterday that the inside portion reminded me of a headstone, but it also reminds me of a beautiful window, like stained glass! Anyway, I thought it would be the perfect backdrop for this cute angel! Doesn't she look sweet perched there with her pigeon toed stance? I stamped all of the images and die cut them using the new Joyous Holiday Confetti Cuts.
I die cut the Blessed word 3 times and glued them together using a 2-way glue pen. I added it to the bottom of the panel using liquid glue.
The "you are a blessing" sentiment is heat embossed in white and added over the wreath using foam squares. I love that this set isn't necessarily for Christmas as I have shown with this unexpected thank you card! I added a few sparkling clear sequins for some added shine!
My final project of the day uses the new Square Window Tag paired with the new Joys of the Season stamp set to create this set of Christmas gift tags.
I stamped all of the images and colored them using Copic markers and then die cut them using the Joys of the Season Confetti Cuts.
I love all of the possibilities that this new tag die presents; it can be used as a window or you can die cut the two pieces separately, like I did for these tags. You can really mix it up and try new things depending on your design needs!
Two of the tags use just the sentiment with some stamped accents, and two use the candy cane and holly image by themselves.
I tied them up with some red baker's twine to enhance the peppermint striped look and feel! I had so much fun working on these tags as well and I can't wait to see them dressing up my Christmas packages! Don't forget to pop back by tomorrow for the Blog Hop! Thanks for fluttering by!
