Penguin Gift Tags


Greetings!   Are you ready for the holidays?   I thought I was then realized I needed a few gifts tags to add to packages!  But as usual, I was in a hurry and only had a few minutes!  So I whipped out my Blank Page Muse stamps and colored pencils and created these 3 tag cards in about 15 minutes.    If you have less than 15 minutes you could even use these stamps without coloring them (See Below).
I pulled out some tiny cards from the dollar spot at my local craft store and stamped the penguins from  the Blank Page Muse Penguins on Ice Winter Holiday Stamp Set.




You can see below that after stamping these tags are cute enough to use without coloring too!

But I quickly added some color with my colored pencils and here are close ups of the finished tags!




I hope you have a great holiday Season!    ~ CHRIS

Christmas Card Using a Non-Christmas Stamp

Hi Friends,
Here is a fun idea for a quick Christmas card.  Try looking at your non-holiday stamp supplies in a new light.  These little trees are actually the body of a little lady image.  So get thinking "outside the box."  I hope this card inspires you to stretch your supplies and your creativity.  Happy Holidays!

Directions:
  1. Stamp both Phoebe lady stamps onto white card stock with black ink.
  2. Color the body of one which will become a tree.  Next, fussy cut all 3 trees.
  3. Punch 3 stars with a paper punch from white card stock. Use a black marker to outline 1 star.
  4. Add a bit of black card stock to form a tree trunk and adhere the middle tree with foam tape to the center of the card. 
  5. Add a bit of green card stock to form tree trunks, assemble the white trees, and attach to each side.
  6. Stamp a checkerboard border with black ink and attach along the bottom edge of the card.
  7. Finally, use black ink to stamp clusters of stars around the Christmas trees.

Dreams begin in the garden

                              
Greetings!  Chris here and today I am exited to share this quick tag I created.  I paired the Fairy Queen Palace stamp with my distress markers and an embossed chipboard fairy to create the tag.


When I first saw this stamp I knew it needed to be added to my collection!



The stamp is 4x4 and large enough that it wouldn't all fit on my tag!
 I loved how this image stamped and it was so fun to color! 
Trust me if you love fairies you need this!

Everyone needs a new hat for the holidays.  That was my inspiration for this card!
