Pretty Christmas tag

I love the Perfect Pennant die!  It’s so versatile!  You can make pennants, decorative tags or cards.  I made this tag for PPA’s Tag your it Challenge.  I die cut some shimmer silver paper and embossed it with the Snowburst embossing folder.  I had some retired music DSP from the Love Letter DSP pack and made a fan fold flower.  I cut a 1-1/2 strip of DSP then used the Scallop Trim Border punch on one side.  I scored every 1/4″  and using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool really makes it fast and easy.

To add some sparkle I used Dazzling Details on the fan fold flower.  The silver glimmer snowflake is die cut using the Northern Frost Sizzix strip and decorated with an 8mm pearl.  The pearls are a sneak peek from the upcoming mini occasions catalog.  To hang the pennant or tie to a gift I used Very Vanilla satin ribbon.  Easy to make and so elegant.

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Skating Boot Gift Card Holder and Christmas ornament

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments the challenge is Anything Goes Christmas Ornaments.  I love the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Stocking and Stocking Accents dies.  Inspired by the many stockings and boots I’ve seen created with these dies I made this vintage gift card holder.  I used the Snow burst textured folder for the top of the boot and heat embossed it with Iridescent embossing powder.  For the boot part I cut two Old Olive card stock stockings and two of the green print Paisley Petals DSP.  To show the green print on the back you need to flip the paper so the print you want to show both sides are showing when stacked.  I then adhered the DSP to the stockings then embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and Big Shot.

The blades are die cut from the Silver shimmery paper using the candy canes from the Stocking Accents die.   You need to cut four, two sets facing one side and the other facing opposite for the back side.  Therefore you need to cut two sets with the glimmer paper up and two sets with the glimmer paper down.  Before I adhered both sides of the boot I sandwiched the blades between the sides of the boot and used Tombow adhesive glue.

I then used some lace trim on the boot and adhered both cuffs to the top of the boot (it would look better if it was SU crochet trim but I ran out) .  For the lacing I made four 3/16″ holes with my Crop-a-dile then used Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon to lace up the boot.  The loop at the top is hemp twine through a  1/8″ hole.  I installed an eyelet for this hole.  I didn’t have any 3/16″ eyelets for the lace holes but it would look even better if I did.

An easy project with so many options for colors.
