Mr. Grinch!

Who doesn't love the story of "the Grinch that stole Christmas"?  If you have a Grinch in your family, you NEED to make some of these tags!  I used mostly punches and a few things cut by hand.  I lifted the idea from lizzier on Splitcoast Stampers.

Angel tag

On the 7th day of Christmas I made a monochromatic angel tag with a pop of dark red.  The angel was saved from a Christmas card, just because it was so darn cute!  I added gold Stickles to the halo and stamped then heat embossed the stars on the background.  To make the crinkled ribbon, I threaded it through the tag as usual, then hit it with the heat gun.  Don't want to do it too much, or it will melt and not be the pretty crinkle look you want. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Christmas tag 4

On the 4th day of Christmas we are to use a stamp.  I used my Stampin up! paint print set and made the poinsettia by stamping twice, cutting out the flower, layering it and adding 3 gold brads.  All papers are scraps from Stampin Up holiday papers.

2nd day of Christmas - use 2 colors of mist.  I used a snowflake stencil and misted with blue and gold.  The bottom border is a sticker and the snowman was saved from a Christmas card.  

3 day of Christmas - make a Christmas tree.  I love how this one turned out and if I find a bit of time I will make a few more.  Using all scraps with a little stitching and added a star brad.

Gift card holder

For the card challenge at Scrap 'N Chat I am challenging you to make a gift card holder.

I used the directions on the Better Homes and Gardens site -  there are several to choose from.  I made the coaster card holder.  I love the look and feel of this one.  Now I need to find some more coasters.  LOL
