Christmas Crafting Makings

So as promised, here is one of the projects we made at this weekends Christmas Craft Day.  We made this lovely little bag of tags complete with 4 gift tags and a Rudolph topper (thank you Keren for the inspiration for the Owl Punch Rudolph!).

Each tag uses a stamp from the Gifted stamp set as its focal point and is then layered with matching coloured cardstock. The stocking tag is coloured with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive, the Seasons Greetings tag uses all the shades of green (Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, Always Artichoke, Garden Green), the Merry Christmas is stamped with Elegant Eggplant  and layered onto Rich Razzleberry and More Mustard and the final tag is stamped with Cherry Cobbler and layered onto Crumb Cake card (and finished with two rhinestones).

 Here is the bag complete with the Chocolate Chip Top Note topper. I drew on the white stitching with my white gel pen and stamped the sentiment with a White Craft Stampin' Pad.
 Here is a close up of the Rudolph. This was punched in Crumb Cake with the Owl Punch. Then by cutting off the feet you are left with the Rudolph face. The antlers are create with the Swirls Scribbles Sizzlit Die in Early Espresso. The nose is punched with the 1/2" Circle Punch and finished with detailing in white gel pen. I drew on the eyes and mouth.
Thanks for stopping by today ;0) Happy crafting and happy last few weeks of summer.
