Christmas Projects

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a few simple and quick holiday projects.

25 Days of Christmas Tags

The first one is a tag for Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags Challenge here. We were asked to make a tag inspired by one of the guests and I chose a tag by Ardyth which can be found here.

Ardyth has a fabulous clean style which I tried to incorporate onto my tag by using her elements of a tree, offset tags and metallics.

I used gold gilding flakes for my funky die cut tree by the Frantic Stamper and the tags are Poppystamps Stitched Main Street Tags.

Now onto a couple of cards, both using the new to me Penny Black Red Star stamp.


For the cards I used Memento Markers to colour onto the stamp and spritzed it a few times with water before stamping it out.


Both sentiments were gold embossed and I added Stickles to the flower centres.


When I got this stamp I didn't realize that the rubber had a pattern, I love the texture it gives to the poinsettia.

I"m entering this card for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes, here.

25 Days of Christmas

Welcome to Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas. This is the 5th year Tracey has been doing this event and this year she gathered an amazing group of designers to inspire you with projects!
Today, the projects are sponsored by Poppystamps!

I went bright with my tag, using Distress Inks to colour the houses and trees. I used watercolour paper that has a lot of texture to add some interest to the die cuts.

I stamped the snowflakes in white pigment ink on the background and added Stardust Stickles to the snow bank to make it sparkly.

Stop by Tracey's blog here to check out all the other Poppystamps tags and to leave a comment for a chance to win a giveaway.

Also stop by the Poppystamps blog here where there will be a giveaway too!

This year Tracey is also having a challenge where you can create a tag that is inspired by anyone of the tag projects showcased during the month and there's oodles of prizes too! For more info visit here.

Share Handmade Kindness

A quick post today with a card for Jennifer McGuire's Share Handmade Kindness Challenge. If you haven't heard about it, it's a month long event with different challenges each week. Please check out all the details here.

For my card, I clear embossed my image onto watercolour paper and smooshed and painted on Distress Inks in Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Preserves. Love these colours together! I white heat embossed the sentiment, added some silver thread and Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

My card is for my sister. She is a huge part of my life and I love her dearly! She lives in the same city as me but I'm going to mail it to her, she'll be so surprised!

Thanks for visiting me with today! #sharehandmadekindness
