12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 12!

We made it, friends!  Welcome to the 12th and final day of the final event brought to you by the Inspiration Crew!  A huge thank you to Donna for leading this effort and keeping all of us on track over the past couple of years!  :)

This final card was made using some patterned kraft card stock I layered over a burgundy card base.  I die cut and stamped the pinecones and sprig and finished the card with a greeting sticker and some wooden snowflakes

Thanks so much for visiting!  I hope you enjoyed these 12 Days as much as I have!

12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 11!

Hello friends and welcome to day eleven of the Inspiration Crew's Holiday Inspiration blog event!  We're in the home stretch now - have you been wrapping up your crafty holiday projects?

This is a fun tag where I stamped a sentiment onto a piece of plaid paper and layered that atop a kraft tag (I'm realizing I used a lot of kraft this year!)  I stamped two graduated poinsettias, pieced them, and layered them atop one another.  I adhered the poinsettia onto the tag and gave it a few pearls for the center.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a great day and I will see you back here tomorrow for our final day!



12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 10!

Hello friends and welcome to day ten of the Inspiration Crew's Holiday Inspiration blog event!

I had a wonderful opportunity to attend a class taught by Anna Corba last week at a local craft store and we made 12 Days of Christmas tags!  I don't have all of them finished yet but thought I'd give you a peek at a few now and share the rest later this month when I get them done.  It was such a fun night crafting with some wonderful women and just getting inky on a "school night" away from the house was a real treat!  A huge thanks to my hubby for agreeing to go solo on bath night!  :)

The bases are tags that were tea-dyed and the little pocket were made of tea-dyed teabags which we simply glued on three sides and attached to the tags.  The stamps were a vintage set Anna had of the 12 days of Christmas and I wish I could have that set!  We embellished the tags with greenery, pieced images, and vintage trims.  It was such a fun project!

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a great day and I will see you back here tomorrow!

12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 9!

Hello friends and welcome to day nine of the Inspiration Crew's Holiday Inspiration blog event!

You've seen my reindeer tag already and this is the card I ended up making when I stamped the extra reindeer I talked about the other day.  I stamped a striped background stamp onto a sheet of vellum using silver ink and layered in on a kraft card base for a subtle look.  I layered the pieced reindeer on top and gave them some metallic noses.  I finished the card with some twine and a sentiment greeting.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a great day and I will see you back here tomorrow!

12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 8!

Hello friends and welcome to day eight of the Inspiration Crew's Holiday Inspiration blog event!  I hope some of our posts have inspired you to get crafty this season - I know I sure am!  Now if I only had more hours in the day...

So, you've heard me yammer about taking advantage of scraps and extras and when I made the card with this paper that I showed you a couple of days ago, I couldn't very well just let the scraps sit in the paper pack for another year so I made this little tag with them.  Layered a sentiment sticker on the bottom and a few gold sequins on top.  Easy peasy!

Here is a list of the other participants in this event - I can't wait to see what crafty goodness they have to share with us this week!  :)

12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 7!

Hello friends and welcome to day seven of the Inspiration Crew's Holiday Inspiration blog event!

This is another relatively simple card that would be easy to mass produce for the holidays!  In the "what came first?" question for this card, the answer was the bells.  As I mentioned yesterday, sometimes I just stamp something I like over and over again in different colors if I know I will be able to use it.  During the holidays, I know I will use those bells - on gift bags, cards, tags, and gift packaging!  I pieced the bells, layered them together and then added the gold twine bow.  Once that was done, I went through my stash of Christmas papers to see what would match.  Risky maybe, but the bells were in shades of poppy/red so I knew it wouldn't be a problem!  I found some paper and a coordinating sentiment sticker and, well, Bob's your uncle!
