Hello there! Thanks for stopping by and checking out the tags I created for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.
For me, I love creating multiple tags at the same time and make them a little different from each other with similar aspects. I decided to use Scalloped Circle Dies as a base for my tags. The shape generally looks like a wreath so this was perfect. First, I used two different patterned papers from the Sunrise paper pad to die cut a larger shape and die cut a smaller piece using white cardstock.
I wanted a bow and although the stamp set, Bowtiful, would be perfect for this, I really wanted to use the bow die from the Winter Wreath Decor dies. I cut out two using white cardstock and colored them in using alcohol markers, adding the look of dimension to them.
I love the layers of the patterns and colors, making the holiday tags look really pretty adn detailed. As a final touch, I took one of the sentiments from Bowtiful that has the “To” and “From”, that finishes off a vital part of a Christmas tag.
Hope you enjoyed the tags here and check out all the other tags created for 25 Days of Christmas Tags.
Have a great day!
Hello there! Thanks for joining me today in Pink & Main’s blog hop collab with WOW! Embossing Powder. I actually did a 1 for 2 card to share today.
My focus is using the Basket Cover die for today’s two cards. The intricateness of this card is amazing and it allows you to create a background easily. You can always die cut out a piece of paper in multiple colors to use it. However, for today, I decided to mix this with heat embossing powders to create a different effect.
First of all, I die cut a white piece of cardstock using the Basket Cover die. Taking that die cut, I placed it over another piece of white cardstock and pressed my Versamark ink all over. This way, I could add both Metallic Gold Rich Pale and Aztec Glintz to the negative space of the die cut.
Once I finished adding the embossing powder, I heat set it. This was a perfect background for my first card, paired with the Season of Change stamp set. I trimmed down my card panel and added it to a dark brown cardstock. I added the images and a strip of brown for the sentiment to the front panel and my card is done. I love the subtle glimmer from the embossing power.
Since I used the die cut for the first background and already added Versamark ink to it, I decided not to waste it and added the same two embossing powders on it. Once I finished, I heat set and it works perfectly for a second background.
For this second card, I also used the Season of Change stamp set. I decided to cut two of scalloped circles from the Scallop Circle die set out of a piece of Kraft and Dark Brown cardstock. These two scalloped circles help the focus go to the image instead of the background and I think it turned out pretty simple and cute.
Thanks for stopping by the blog to check out these two cards using Pink & Main stamps and dies along with WOW! Embossing powder. Be sure to stop by the rest of the blog hop and comment for a chance to win!

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog for the Glue Dots and Pink & Main Blog Hop collaboration, where you can win a $25 gift card just for leaving a comment. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at 6am.
For today’s card, I decided to use the new stamp set from this month, Eskimo Kisses, and its coordinating dies. I stamped this out on white cardstock and used the dies to cut easily cut all these images out.
After I colored all the images I cut out, I decided that I wanted to use the Box Card die, which made creating an interactive card extra easy!
Once I cut out the box card pieces, I used Glue Dot’s glue lines to put everything together. These glue lines are perfect for the tabs that make the box card. Two work perfectly for the side tabs.
For the inner part of the box, I used Bristol Smooth paper and created a Northern Sky look using distress inks and white splatter. I truly believe that white splatter makes anything into a galaxy or a star filled sky. For the outer part of the card, I die cut out blue paper to mimic ice. Once, I did that I used the Glue Dot’s glue runner to tape all these pieces to the box card.
I was able to use various Glue Dots adhesive to add the stamped and die cut images to the box. It works really well since Glue Dots has a variety of sizes so it could be added to the nooks and crannies of the images. In particular, the mini dots are a favorite for box cards. Look at the little girl’s feet! They are so small but the mini dots fit perfectly on behind each shoe.
To finish off this card, I stamped out the sentiment on the matching blue on the interior of the card. I loved how this card turned out and can’t wait to give this away! I hope you enjoyed it and the blog hop. All the other participants are listed below… and remember to comment for a chance to win! Enjoy!

Happy Saturday everyone! How have you been enjoying this release? I find everything completely fabulous, especially the butterfly from the You Can Fly stamp set! I’ve been in a bit of a crafting lull, but playing with this set really brought me back.
I used a bunch of surface inks: Barbershop, Rose Garden, Construction, Street Light, Salon, Skyscraper. I decided to use them unconventionally as watercolors on watercolor paper. It worked perfectly to create a mix of colors to create this butterfly.
I wanted to make a spinner card, but it didn’t work out for whatever reason. Since I already put in so much work, I decided to still move forward and now it’s a floating butterfly card.
I also decided to use the Shades of Spring paper pad for the front of the card panel. I think the pink from the patterned paper ties together with the butterfly.
To check out how I created this card by accident, and how I used the surface inks for this butterfly, check out my quick tutorial on YouTube.

I’m so excited to post my first design team card for Pink & Main. I adore their stamps and I love this July release so much!
The first set I played with was Catitude. If you love cats, you’ll adore this set. I love the variety of cats within this set and I wanted to use them all. I almost did!
I decided to use four of them. Three repeated twice and one was a very subtle one in the middle of my card. I also to add some action to this so I created a simple spinning card. I have a similar card with a video tutorial here.
On a piece of 5.5 x 5.5 paper from the Shades of Spring paper pack, I stamped out three kitties on top of a circle and repeated it on the mirror side. I’ll fussy cut out these images adding a circle to connect them all. I decided to make things super simple and used a piece from the Shades of Spring paper pack as my background. For the middle part, I stamped one of the images using a lighter grey ink and added the sentiment in black. The technical details can be seen in the video, but the idea is that the kitties will be spinning around in a circle. It’s sooooo adorable.
Hope you enjoyed today’s card and hope you’ll be back for more of my projects.
