Build-A-Snowman ~ Handmade Christmas Tags

Christmas is here before you know it and I wanted to make some handmade Christmas tags to put on my presents this year.  I wanted to use this cute die set that I purchased from KatScrappiness called “build-a-snowman” by Cheery Lynn Designs.

 

Aren’t they adorable?

Here is the process video if you would like to replicate them.  You don’t have to use the same dies that I have used. You can get inexpensive stickers at the Dollar store or any craft store to make handmade tags.

 

I hope you got inspired today.  Supplies I’ve used are listed and linked below:

“Beary” Christmas ~ CDD Monthly Challenge

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you are all having a great day so far. I am back today to share with you two Christmas projects that I have made to get you in the mood for the holidays.

 

The December monthly challenge at Craftin’ Desert Divas (#CDDMonthly) is all about Christmas and I got inspired by the amazing mood board that Tara (the owner) has put together. For people joining the challenge, Tara is also giving away a free digi-stamp called “Beary Christmas”. Thank you Tara for this amazing digi!  If you would like to join the challenge and get the free digi-stamp, please join the CDD Gallery Facebook Group here:

 

This is the mood board for this month’s challenge. Isn’t it beautiful?

Dear Santa Christmas Cards

Hello stampers and crafters! I am back today and I am sharing two cards that I designed, showcasing the Dear Santa stamp set, the Kat Scrappiness Christmas Tree and Happy Holidays Dies and a whole lot of other supplies available for purchase at the shop.

Since I have just arrived a few hours ago from spending Thanksgiving with my family, I will not have a process video for you today for these two cards. However, these cards are pretty simple and can be mass-produced.

For the first card, I started out by stamping a bunch of the cat images, the ball of yarn, and the presents on Neenah Solar White card stock, using memento tuxedo black ink. I colored the image using my Copic markers. I also die-cut the Christmas tree using the Doodlebug “Here Comes Santa Claus” patterned paper, then adhering the pieces together with my favorite Tombow liquid adhesive.

I wanted a white-on-white background to make my images pop but I didn’t want my card panel to look flat, so I decided to use my Taylored Expressions Twinkling Holiday embossing folder. Embossing the card stock gave it more of a dimension. I adhered all of my pieces together using my liquid adhesive and Scotch foam tape, and finished the card design with a cute Lawn Fawn tag that says “Define Naughty!” with my Lawn Fawn Peppermint twine.

Here is the first card:

For the second card, I didn’t want to use traditional Christmas colors. I colored my cat image with light grays and pink Copic markers. I used a patterned paper from Pinkfresh Studio 6×6 paper pad to die-cut the front panel of my card.

Using my blending foam, I distressed my white card stock with Spun Sugar distressed ink and blended it until the colors matched the pink twine. I die-cut the sentiment using Kat Scrappiness Happy Holidays Script die. I LOVE THIS DIE! It cuts like butter! I then adhered all of my pieces to the front panel of my card using my liquid adhesive. I finished the design with my pink and gold twine, and White Diamonds Sequins by Kat Scrappiness. I think the card turned out simple yet classy!

I hope you like both cards and got inspired today. I promise to have a process video for my next design team project.

I have listed and linked all the supplies that I have used below in case you’re interested to purchase them.

Have an amazing day!
