RRR Merry Christmas Pocket Tag

 
Hello crafty friends and Happy Wednesday to you all! Today I'm sharing another fun Christmas tag, this one is a pocket one I designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon, it can hold hot cocoa and a stir stick, or candys or whatnot. Love making these as they are so fun to create and give as gifts.
Love that you can take your large dies, and create these pockets, and then decorate them up using other dies and embellishments. I used the beautiful ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon, one is a Forest Green Satin, and the other is a christmas plaid. I used the Kadoodle Bug Designs Christmas cup ginger that I had put together last year. Love these! The sentitment tags are stampinup! I added some white dots, and then a little santa hat button up on the top bow.

TLC Warm & Fuzzy Unicorn tag

Hello crafty friends and Happy Tuesday to you all! Today's tag was designed for TLC Designs using the darling Warm & fuzzy Unicorn Stamp set. Just love this new stamp set, as the darling unicorn is just the cutest.

So for my tag today I used the beautiful Rosie die set to cut out my papers. I used the largest one to cut out my wine colored card stock, then the second largest die to cut out white, and then the square smaller one to cut the design paper. I glued all pieces down and then added some white paint dots. Next I stamped my sweet unicorn image, and colored her up using copic markers. Isn't she the cutest??? I just love her! I also added some stickles to the snow, and falling snow. Next I added some snowflakes from some of my stash shaker pieces. The sentiment was stamped in black in, and I cut it into a tag shape. I distress all edges using pink ink. lastly i added some bows, and then a pearl from the celebrate sprinkls assortment. Super fun tag to make and super easy! I will use this for my granddaughter who loves unicorns.

 


I hope you enjoyed my post, and thank you for stopping by! Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Nash's Hot Cocoa Gift Pocket

Hello crafty friends and happy Wednesday to you all! Today's post is a sweet Hot Cocoa Gift Pocket I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon, The Robins Nest Creative & Kadoodle Bug Designs. Love making these fun little pockets, as you can add treats, or whatever you choose, super fun!

For my pocket I chose to use a large die, and cut it 2 times in craft card stock, then also cut my design papers too. Now to create the pocket you will cut one of the 2 in half for the bottom of it. I just glued on my design papers to both pieces and then glued the edges of the bottom piece so it forms a pocket to hold the hot cocoa and peppermint chocolate stick. I did add a border and the beautiful christmas ribbon from RRR. I ran it across the border and the cup. This ribbon was from Octobers Ribbon club. Cardinals & Ornaments Satin  , then used the green plaid Ribbon to create my bows. I used the Robins Nest dew drops on my doily, cup, Nash's Hat, and the candy cane. Love using these to embellish.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Scor-Tape 1/4" For adding ribbon and border.

KBD Candy Corn Donut Ginger

 

Hello crafty friends , today I'm sharing this darling Kadoodle Bug Designs Sitting Candy Corn Donut Ginger, isn't she the cutest? I wanted to make another fun Memorydex to enjoy and this one is the first fall one for this year. 
to start with I cut out my memorydex card using a die, and then used the sweet Ginger girl that I had put together. She is cut out in different colored card stock and then distressed. I used inks and pens to do all that. Next her eyes, I love doing their eyes its so much fun. On her eyes I try to use a 005 pen for the lashes, then using another little thicker pen for the liner, and then chalk for the highlighting.Next for the blue eyes I did cut in a blue and then used 2 copics for highlighting the edges. The black I did using the glossy accents over the black, and I did have to add more paint pen in white on top, as it faded what was underneath. I chalked her cheeks and added some white paint pen. I do show the pen in my videos, and I think I bought a 2 pack of these on ebay. I love the paint pens so much better than gel as the gel pens dry up. Now for her bow, I used the gorgeous RRR Sherry & Ivory Plaid ribbon. My sentiment is from The Project bin stamps.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely day!
