The Vienna Stampers Club just had their annual Christmas Party. We celebrate our creativity by doing a tag exchange.
Stampin' Up does a fantastic job with coordination of products in the company's catalogs. The holiday occasions catalog features the awesome Year of Cheer Suite. These products work great for Christmas projects as well as wedding projects. The coordinating stamp set includes sentiments for Christmas, New Years, and wedding cards and tags.
To make the bags, I stamped all the sentiments and small tag in Garden Green Ink. The "Deck the Halls" sentiment came from the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set. The "Seasons Greetings" sentiment came from the Snowflake Sentiments Stamp Set. The sentiments were cut out on the big shot with the Layering Ovals Framelit Dies.
The little To and From tag came from the Merry Little Labels Stamp Set. Once you stamp it on Whisper White cardstock, punch it out with the Everyday Label Punch.
The Seasonal Chums Bundle from Stampin' UP makes cute mobile ornaments. Glitter makes the snow in the bottom. Add a lovely bow and greenery to dress up the glass ball.
The Colorful Seasons Bundle is definitely one of my favorite things from the Annual Catalog. I decided to use the winter themed die to create an unusual combination of snowflakes using Washi tape.
Most people really don't know what to do with Washi tape other than to hold dies in place on your big shot. It really can be a versatile element in scrapbooking and card making. It is a simple way to add pattern and color. But did you know that you can stick it down to a piece of whisper white card stock in any pattern you like, and then place your die over it and cut it on the big shot?
