Glitter Sparkle Bling Tags

I love the sparkle, bling, and glimmer of these tags!! Thanks to my friend Donna for showing me these! We layered Glimmer paper on vellum folded flowers, a scallop circle, and Boho Blossoms! How did I get Marina Mist Glimmer Paper you ask? By coloring it with a sponge dauber and some Marina Mist ink!! I love them so much I had to make a Wild Wasabi one!

Monogrammed Christmas Gifts

I love making personalized monogrammed gifts for my friends and family. Here is a sneak peek at some that I made. I kept it simple with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and Lovely Letters alphabet for the cards. I used the pattern from this blog post for the card box.

For the notepad cover I used a full sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" and scored at 1/8" from 5-1/2" on each side. I added a strip of Designer Series Paper and slipped a curled up piece into the pen.

Winter Post Diamond Folding Card

We made this diamond folding card using the Winter Post stamp set at my last stamp club for this year. I love how this card is created! I started with a 4" x 12" piece of card stock and scored and 2" and 4" on each 12" side. Then I made a mark in the middle (6") on each side and scored from the 2" mark to the 6" mark on the opposite side diagonally. I moved the card and then scored from the middle 6" mark to the opposite 2" mark diagonally. I reversed the card and did the same on the other side. Then I folded it up into a diamond in the middle.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Treat

I made these as gifts for one of my stamp club's members. I love how they turned out! I used mint m&ms to fill the little cello bags and then the Stocking Builder punch to create my reindeer! The snowflake punch was used for the antlers and a bit of Cherry Cobbler twine for the reins!

Reindeer Top Note Bag Toppers

I had so much fun making these cute reindeer top note bag toppers and filling the bags with candy for my daughter's preschool classmates! I used the Top Note Die folded in half to create the tag topper and the snowflake punch to create the reindeer.  Aren't they cute?  My daughter wanted a reindeer nose too, so I punched out another red glimmer circle and stuck it on her nose!

Christmas Gift Givers Shaker Card

The new Shaker Card Frames from the Holiday Mini catalog makes it so easy to make a fun shaker card! I used the Gift Givers stamp set, mica flakes and some acetate to create the shaker. I was inspired by this card by Cindy but I changed the sentiment to Merry Christmas from the Christmas Greetings stamp set.


More Christmas Two Tags Die Gift Tags

Here are some more tags that I made from the Two Tags die. I used the Stitched Stockings, Sweet Season and Dear Santa set to embellish the tags. I added some bling with the silver glitter card stock. I have enough tags, now I need to start making gifts!


Christmas Two Tags Die Gift Tags

I made this trio of tags with the Two Tags die and Stocking Accents die. I added a little bling with small circles punched out of the Silver Glimmer Paper. I used some of the Brights Patterns Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the tags to highlight the stocking accents.

Christmas Gift Card Holder

'Tis the season for lovely gift card holders! I made this one with the Holly Berry Bouquet and the Pines & Poinsettias stamp set. I started with a 9-1/2" x 4" piece of crumb cake card stock and scored at 4" and 8" on the 9-1/2" side and then turned the card stock a quarter turn right and scored at 1-1/2".

I used the corner rounder on all the outside corners and decorated the inside of the gift card holder. I used the Slit punch to hold in a gift card.

To add the poinsettias on the front, I embossed some real red card stock with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder and then used the Boho Blossom punch to perfectly punch out the poinsettias. I added some dazzling details in the middle of each poinsettia and wrapped some early expresso quilted stain ribbon around to hold the gift card holder closed.

Here are the supplies that I used.  Place an order and receive a special FREE gift from me!
