It is a Bright Merry Christmas!

I hope you all have a very Happy Holiday season, wherever you live around the world!  I have one last little holiday project I wanted to share, and then can we skip to summer?!  😂 (But seriously...can we?!  Please!  😊)  I love this tag though...it is sticking with a bit of my non-traditional colors of Christmas love...but also is pretty traditional.  So a win-win for whatever your preference is, right?!  Hee.   I used Magenta Madness, instead of a red, for the holly berries.  I love the brightness of it SO much!

SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Coastal Cabana, Magenta Madness, Granny Apple Green, Basic Black, Whisper White, Gold
Inks:  Coastal Cabana, Magenta Madness, Granny Apple Green, VersaMark, StazOn Jet Black
Cardstock/Papers:  Whisper White, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: Christmas Gleaming
Tools: Beautiful Boughs Dies, 2 1/4" Circle Punch (for mask), Water Painters, Heat Tool, Sponges
Accessories:  Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder, Linen Thread

The Magenta Madness mixed on a Coastal Cabana sponged circle with some splatter & some Granny Apple Green holly leaves...well it just perfectly rounds out that bright & merry christmas tag...right?!  😃


A little tip on the sponged and splattered circle...use whatever size circle you want and punch or die-cut it from Vellum Cardstock.  Then you set aside the punched or die-cut piece and use the negative space from it as your mask.  And then it is see-through so you can easily see where you want your circle!  So just lay your mask onto your project, and sponge away!  If you want that variation of color like I did here, just add more layers of ink in spots to get the different shades.  

This tag is one of my fave things I've made this season, so that means I should make a bunch, right?!  Hee.  I thought so too!  😁 


I hope you enjoy!  Thank you so much for visiting!  Please let me know if you have any questions on anything!  Would love to help you with all your paper crafting needs!

Want to make your Christmas gift fancy & special, but don't have a lot of time?!  Well me too!  😀  Just make an oversized quick tag and tie it onto your gift packaging with some fancy ribbon!  I have found a little handmade touch goes a long way to make someone feel fancy & special, and is always worth the few extra moments.  I used different colors for these tags to share some variety, but feel free to pic one color and mass produce for even quicker creating!  
 
And look how cute it is tied on a simple Kraft gift bag!  
 
 

These tags are beautiful, but they really just took a couple mins to make.  Just did a quick watercolor wash in the different colors, black splatter, a few die-cut snowflakes, a greeting and a punch tab on top!  😍  

I could NOT decide which color was my favorite!  Do you have one?!

Flirty Flamingo:
 

Soft Sea Foam:

Coastal Cabana:

 

Highland Heather:

 

These were such fun tags to make!  Thank you so much for visiting!  Please let me know if you have any questions!  One last look at the tags:

Who wouldn't want to receive a gift with this fun tag on it?!  I know I would!  Hee.  If you give this tip a try...I want to see what you make!

Right Triangle & Many Mates Mashup...

Playing catch-up a little bit and realizing I forgot to post this card back in Sept!  😕 One day I will be back on my game.  Hopefully.  Hee.  But I loved this challenge we did over at Stampin' Fancy Friday!  (Follow us on IG & Facebook...we post new challenges every month and then new inspiration with that challenge all month long!!!) It is all about combining stamp sets!  My card, I used the Right Triangle Bundle and the Many Mates Stamp Set.  I LOVE having just a bold, totally versatile, stamp set in my arsenal of crafting supplies.  Because you can pair it with ANY greeting and have a card for any occasion!  Here is my geometric thank you!


SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)


Colors: Coastal Cabana, Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Whisper White
Inks:  Coastal Cabana, Magenta Madness, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers:  Mango Melody, Shimmery White, Whisper White, Basic Black, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: The Right Triangle, Many Mates
Tools: Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder, Stitched Triangles Dies, Heat Tool, Water Painters 
Accessories:  Whale of a Time Sequins, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack (white twine)

I can't seem to ever walk away from these colors.  Haha.  I LOVE them!  I also love how bright and fun they make these triangles.  I first stamped them onto watercolor paper, and embossed them with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Then I just watercolored over them and cut them out with the Stitched Rectangle Dies!  They layered them together!  😍

Here is a better view of these cuties:



Did you participate in the challenge back in September?!  Hey...if not...it isn't too late, right?!  It's always a good time to participate in a challenge!  Just mash up any two stamp sets and share your creation!  Can't wait to see what you make!

Rainbowed Message of Love:

Rainbow colors, watercoloring, embossing, fun lace-y detail, and lots of love to share...what could be better, right?!  😉

SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Whisper White, Basic Black

Inks:  Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, VersaMark

Cardstock/Papers:  Shimmery White, Whisper White, Basic Black

Stamps: Parcels & Petals

Tools: Heat Tool, Water Painters
 
AccessoriesSquare Vellum Doilies, Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In Color Ribbon, 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder

I pretty much love how this card turned out!  I hope you do too!  I used some fun Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder bunches on this card!  First, I stamped the background design from the Parcels & Petals Stamp Set multiple times and them embossed with the Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Then just give that baby a fun rainbow watercolor wash!  And now it's time to add your focal point and details!  Some pleated ribbon, some fun gold embossed flowers, and those FABULOUS 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots!  Take a peek at the details:

I LOVE adding this fun detail with ribbon.  Just add some Tear & Tape adhesive to the back of the cardstock, and "pleat" the ribbon...basically folding it back and forth on itself down the cardstock!  

Can we talk about the amazing Vellum Doilies that are in the Annual Catalog?!  They are SOOOOO cute and add such a gorgeous detail!  I may never stop adding them to things!  Hee.  I cut one in half for this card, and then adhered it on the side of the watercolored piece.  Such a GORGEOUS detail!  I love it! 😍

I hope you enjoy!  Please let me know if you have any questions on anything!  I would love to help you with anything!  Thanks so much for visiting!
