Vintage Christmas

All supplies are Stampin' Up! except where noted. I really love this vintage Santa and girl image by Inkadinkado that I stamped in Brown Sugar ink on Crumb Cake cardstock, then inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress inks of Tea Dye and Old Paper. Highlighted a few parts of the image with Prismacolor pencils. Background is Christmas Collage on Naturals Ivory, Champagne glimmer paper and last year's snowflake brads with some retired ivory ribbon to embellish.

Today's tags use the single Stampin' Up! Dasher stamp (retired) with various card stocks, ribbon, twine, and embellishments. I found an old Fossil watch box that is the perfect size to add the tags for gift giving. (Pictured below).

The following is an embroidery project of mine that I wanted to share, I love the vintage holiday toys!

More projects

I have had this snowman paper for years and it was in my donate pile, I changed my mind and retrieved it to make these envelopes.
The tags were today's design with a holiday stamp from Joann's.

Peaceful Pines

New Stampin' Up! holiday mini catalog supplies used were Peaceful Pines stamp set with coordinating dies. Soft Sky and Whisper White card stocks, white embossed snowflakes are from an older retired set (Trees Three) that seems too timeless to get rid of, I love the snowflakes and the sentiments on this one.

Never enough tags

I love giving tags to friends and family for the holiday season, it seems you can never have enough of these and they are so much fun to make. I try to do about about 8 a day, various designs. This cute gingerbread set is from Inkadinkado. Added lots of glitter and used a few different punches for edges. I hope you stop back, I'll be using some new Stampin' Up! holiday mini items that have been begging to be used.  

Christmas card and tags

I stamped a sheet of this holiday sentiment in Pool Party and Indigo and made tags out of them (8 per sheet of Whisper White). New embossing folder shaded with pastel chalk, pool party taffeta ribbon to embellish. The tag is loosely adhered to the card with some dollar store foam adhesive which can be easily pulled from the card where there are two strips of adhesive tape waiting to be peeled off and attached to a package. Supplies are Stampin' Up!

Christmas album

I've been working on some handmade holiday gifts. This is an album/box that I decorated with Graphic 45 papers, Webster's Pages ribbon, chipboard tree, rosette made from same paper collection, with an antique brad from SU. On to the inside, which will be an accordion style photo booklet.
