SugarPea Designs Christmas Tags

It's December and you know what that means! You better be very good because Santa Claus is coming to town! 

Today I'm sharing a trio of tags made with the Sugar Pea Designs Here Comes Santa Claus stamp set with coordinating Sugar Cut Dies. Tags can make the simplest gift of home baked goods look fussy and expensive. 
All of the images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers. You only need a few colors to fill in these clean line images.
I inked die cut Snowflake Tags from white card stock and then inked them with distress ink in blue, pink and green. 
I stamped sentiments directly on the inked tags and then cut a second tag from colored card stock to coordinate with the inked tags.
I adhered the die cut images with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension. A sprinkle of sparkling clear sequins adds some sparkle and shine. And of course a pretty bow makes these tags a gift all by themselves! 



You can't find pretty tags like this in a store! And the best part is that the recipient will know how much you care!

Pretty Little Studio - You are So Special

Hi friends! I'm happy to be sharing a card today made with the newest Pretty Little Studio collection called Glitter and Ice! And let me tell you that it is absolutely GORGEOUS! It's got everything from elaborate floral arrangements and metallic foil frames to cute animals and hand doodled trees. 
I love the colors in this collection too.. pretty coral and teal with pops of gold. A close up look at the elegant die cut arrangement from Christmas Florals die cut pack shows the glittery gold foliage among the flowers and foliage. This is a flat printed image but looks like gold glitter. 
The floral is adhered with adhesive foam tape to add dimension and the snowflake Warm Wishes sentiment tag is tucked underneath. Because they're from the same collection the colors of the die cuts and papers matches perfectly. 
I love the contemporary look of this collection.. it feels familiar and fresh all at the same time.

Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash - Thank You!


Well hello there beautiful Confetti friends! Can you believe it's December already? I'm taking a break from holiday cards for a walk through the garden today! The colder temperatures have put an end to my flowers so I will have to make some of my own. 
A new challenge begins today at Reverse Confetti and this time we're looking for Thank you cards!  I'm playing along with this card because let's face it.. folks that do sweet and kind things for us are the most beautiful aren't they? 
I'm smitten with the Reverse Confetti Peony stamp set. The gorgeous bold bloom is easy to color and then cut with coordinating Confetti Cut dies. 
I colored this beauty with Copic Markers. Instead of blending I colored each petal in solid colors. The striped detail on the leaves is also kept in individual colors to provide more contrast. I love the clean look I achieved.
The background is a striped block background of papers from the Under The Umbrella 6" pad.   I chose this pad for the yellows and greens to coordinate with my blooms. I stamped the Sentimentally Yours greeting directly on the pattern paper inside a wreath I created from the foliage in the set. 
Make your own flower garden and have a beautiful day!
