Christmas Tags



***My reindeer tag was chosen as a Challenge Favorite at Tag You're It!***


Hello my stampy friends. I have been MIA! I have busy getting ready for the Christmas holiday, among other things! I am sure you can all relate....
But I wanted to pop in and share some tags I made as gifts for my co workers!



I had lots of fun making them. I have 10 co-workers, so I made 10 sets of tags.
I put them in these cute little strawberry containers that I found at Target. I think they liked them!
I wanted to give them early, so they could use them on their Christmas gifts.

Here is a close up of each tag:











I think this one qualifies to join in the fun at the



I hope all of you have
HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

25 Days of Christmas at Paper Sweeties!


 Each day this month, a different designer will post a card or project featuring PAPER SWEETIES products!  We did this last year and it was a blast! Our PAPER SWEETIES Design team will post the first 15 days of the month, and then we will have some VERY special guests posting at the end of the month! So I hope you will visit the PAPER SWEETIES blog each day for some fabulous inspiration and lots of prizes!


Now I will share my card!



I decided to feature Miss Emma today! Doesn't she look cute in her Christmas outfit? Her outfit is from the Have a Holly Jolly Holiday stamp set. I paper pieced the clothes and used Copic Markers to color her skin and hair. 


The pretty Christmas lights are from the current release Basket Add-On: Baked with Love. I colored the lights with Copics and then added Glossy Accents to the little bulbs. 


The sentiment on the sign is also from the Have a Holly Jolly Holiday. The little sign is from the Garden Time Sweet Cuts set. It was perfect for my little snow scene!

Now please visit the Paper Sweeties Blog each day in December for some awesome inspiration!!!

December 2016 Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge

Hello my stampy friends! 
It's time for a new inspiration challenge here at
Can you believe it is already December 1???




I LOVE this month's PAPER SWEETIES Challenge!!! 


These colors are SO festive!!!

Here is my card:



My card features the HOLLY DAYS stamps and matching Sweet Cuts. I colored them with Copic markers to match this fun paper. I was going for a RETRO feel!



After I colored the ornaments, I added Glossy Accents, silver Stickles and silver Liquid Pearl drops to each one. I used silver twine to hang them up!


The sentiment is from the MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS stamp set. I heat embossed the sentiment onto one of the SWEET BORDERS  Sweet Cuts. Lastly, I added some PAPER SWEETIES silver sequins! I am so in love with this brightly colored card!!

I hope we have inspired you to play with us this month!
