Hello Everyone,

Today I am participating in a Blog Hop with some other Art with Heart Team members! Members from the Art with Heart Team will bringing you ideas for Christmas weekly from now until Christmas! Now I may not participate weekly, but I’m hoping to get a post up regularly and help myself get on top of my Christmas tags and cards especially, but hopefully some off the page items too!

I was inspired by our new In Colours and wanted to have a modern twist for my tags this week. So I used Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.

Using the solid rectangle from the Thoughtful Banners set I used both in colours to create my background. 

I added the sentiments in Memento Black from the same set, along with the “Merry Christmas” from Teeny Tiny Sentiments. I then punched this out using the Classic Label Punch.

I finished off one tag with Rhinestones and the other with sequins, just to add a bit of glitz!

Thanks for popping by. If you head back to Claire’s blog post here you will be able to find a list of other participants in this week’s hop!

Hi Everyone,

Today I am participating in a Blog Hop with some other Art with Heart Team members, to bring you some ideas for Christmas! Funny enough I didn’t need much encouragement to craft for Christmas since I LOVE Christmas…you know, just a little (ha ha).

I know each Christmas I use a lot of gift tags (because I LOVE Christmas remember, and that means spoiling those closest to me!). So it seemed only fitting that my first Christmas project for this year (yes, in May, much to my husband’s astonishment) that I make a tag.

I did make a similar Christmas card to this last year, I just altered it a little to make a smaller version.

I punched my piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and then ran it through the Big Shot with my Brick Wall Textured Embossing Folder.
I diecut the wreath using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and adhered it using my Fine Tip Glue pen. I then used the Holly Berry Punch on Real Red cardstock to punch the bow and berries. With the Stampin’ Write Marker (Real Red) I added some details to the bow. I stamped the Christmas greeting from the timeless Teeny Tiny sentiments stamp set in Real Red and diecut that using the banner die in the Popcorn Box Thinlits. I popped up the sentiment with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished off with a bit of Wink of Stella over the berries.  Is it even possible to do anything Christmas related without Wink of Stella? (no! Not if you are me!).
