Calling All Sistahs
HELLO!! =)
I'm here today for the New Challenge over on the Calling All Sistahs Blog!!
EVERY Month on the 18th we'll be sharing a New Inspiration Challenge Photo!!
Lets take a look at the NEW Calling All Sistahs November Challenge CAS07!! 

 
I thought I would make a Gift Tag!! I wanted to challenge myself to use these colors for more of a Holiday Gift Tag and this is what I came up with!! I've used the Pretty Posies Stamp Set, the New Joy Stamp Set and the Tag Buddies Fri Die Set!! I Die Cut the Tags!! One from some Copper Metallic Paper and the other from some Distress Watercolor Paper!! I White Heat Embossed the Snowflake Images and then added some Distress Inks in Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from Pretty Posies and added some ColoriQue Snow Summit Ink Splatters for the look of Falling Snow!! I wanted to add some Sparkle and Shine so I added some Pretty Pink Posh Snowflake Sequins to the Centers of some of the Snowflakes and topped them off with some Copper Penny Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops!! I Attached it to my Gift Bag with some Tulle and a Mini Clothes Pin!!

25 Days of Christmas Tags Event w/ Newton's Nook Designs!! =)

Pin It

HELLO!!
I'm here for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2017 over on the In My Creative Opinion Blog!!
Today she's showcasing Newton's Nook Designs!!
Here's the SWEET Tag I've made for today!!
I've used the NEW "Naughty or Mice" Stamp Set along with the coordinating "Naughty or Mice" Die Set!! I've also used the NEW Snowfall Stencil and the "Santa Paws Newton" Stamp Set and the coordinating "Santa Paws Newton" Die Set!! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE how versatile Stencils are!! Here's a look at that the NEW Products if you haven't seen them in their entirety!!                              
For a FUN Interactive Element to the Tag I've Taylored Expressions Flap Stacks Rectangle Dies to create the Flap to open the Tag!! I think this is such a FUN Idea for Holiday Tags!! I Die Cut 2 Tags using the MFT Tag Builder BluePrints 4 Die and then Die Cut the Flap into one of them!! I used masking to create my Ground and Inked with Gathered Twigs!! I envisioned the Mouse Sneaking in from the Country!! Then I created the Background using Distress Inks in Rainbow Colors to match the Rainbow Scarf on the Mouse!! I used Clear Embossing Powder to cover the Snowflakes so I could use the Darker Nigh time colors over the top of the Snowflakes!! I repeated the same think for the inside of the Tag, on I just Embossed with White Embossing Powder as to not compete with the Recipients Names!! Then I added the North Pole Image and the To: & From: sentiment from the "Jolly Tags" Stamp Set!! I used Foam Tap to add the Mouse to the Front of the Tag and added some Distress Rock Candy Glitter to the Ground for some SPARKLE like just a Dusting of Snow was on the Ground!! Some Twine Finishes it off!! A little Lawn Fawn Gift Box and this will make the SWEETEST Little Gift for someone SPECIAL this Holiday Season!!

I'm also joining the
