25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020 - Day 23


Welcome to Day 23 of this year's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. All the details can be found here on Tracey's blog.




Today's sponsor is Penguin Palace Stamps.

If you've watched my most recent video, you know how I made these sparkly tags with the Stencils 360 tool and a 6 inch square Snowflake stencil. 

And if you haven't, why not? LOL! Here's a link:

 I'm on the Birch Press Design blog today with these shiny Christmas cards! I hope you'll check it out!

You're The Best

 

Congratulations to this week's Featured Stamper, Leslie (lesliespringer). 

I chose this card as my inspiration:





List: rainbow butterfly, watercoloured, white embossing, image off the left edge, black stamped sentiment at the bottom
Include: rainbow, left edge, sentiment
Modify: butterfly to rainbow, stamping to die cut, occasion, 
Exclude: butterfly, white embossing
Spin: ink-nonblending

You know how you work so hard to get a gorgeous smooth blend when you're inkblending? This isn't that! lol! 



25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020 - Day 22

 


Welcome to Day 22 of this year's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. All the details can be found here on Tracey's blog.




Today's sponsor is Erin Lee Creative. I used the Pine Layering stencil set to make this, and I created an 'extra' layer by flipping the top layer and blending ink through it as well. This gives the look of even more texture.

I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, and cut out some 'ornaments' from Holographic cardstock.

Getting Even MORE from Stencils 360


 

Good morning! Today I'm sharing a video with even MORE ways to get more from the Stencils 360 tool from Penguin Palace Stamps!  It's been out of stock for a long time, but it's re-stocking this week, just in time to be on your Christmas wishlist!

The projects in the video are all Christmas cards, but the techniques will work all year long!





25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020 - Day 21



Welcome to Day 21 of this year's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. All the details can be found here on Tracey's blog.





Today's sponsor is Studio Katia. And the only Studio Katia product I have is this Mini Dots Coverplate. 

Dots are classic and can work for any occasion. I cut the coverplate from white cardstock, then cut the tag from it, and layered it over another tag cut from red.

I used a sentiment from Essentials by Ellen on one of their Colour Me Strips dies, and embossed with Rich Pale Gold embossing powder from Wow!

I added some gold jewels from Pretty Pink Posh.

But I think the best part is the ribbon and how the white dots on it play off the tag - this is old Stampin' Up ribbon from my stash.
