Tags and more tags

In response to Papertrey's Assembly Line challenge I made two sets of Christmas tags.  I made the first set

I overlaid a kraft tag onto a white tag having cut the snowman shape from the kraft tag.  Added a little color to him and a little snow to the tag and they were done.  Super easy, super cute!  But then I had the snowman diecuts sitting there so they needed to be used and I can never have too many tags at the holidays.  And so I made these

I used sparkly watercolors to paint the snowmen white which is so pretty on the kraft paper!  And then added a little color for the holidays.  I then popped those on aqua mist tags that I stippled the same white watercolors on for "snow."  A little metallic twine and done.

I hope you are feeling a little more festive now!  I know I am.

Sending Love

I am so happy to report that I only need three more holiday cards for the year!  Hopefully I can knock those out in the next week or so and move on to other holiday projects...namely tags.  But for today I am sharing a card for the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  This week's challenge was to dig through their sketch archive and find a sketch to use.  I found several that I liked, but the one I settled on was from January of this year.

With that I broke out my brand new Post and Parcel Kit to make this card.

I stamped the sentiment in red on white cardstock and then covered the whole thing with crystal glitter for snow.  Instead of a circle around the image I added random hearts to tie in with the sentiment, "Sending love from our house to yours."  Super cute for someone we love far away.

Thanks for stopping by and please let me know what you think.
