Holiday Tags

The MFT team is sharing some fabulous Christmas tags in this month's Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge. You know you can never have too many tags this time of year!

I inked up the adorable Dashing Deer stamp set. I stamped the images on X-Press It card stock and I colored them with Copics. I fussy cut the deer and placed them on a snow-filled Cornflower background. I used the Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics to create the tags. The sentiments were stamped on flags created with the Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics.

You are Deerly Loved

I am loving the colors in this week's Color Challenge. At first, I wondered what I would create with them, but then I spotted the Deer Love Die-namics on my desk and the rest was history! I masked off the moon and then sponged on Orange Fizz, Grape Jelly, and Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. I removed the mask and sponged on Lemon Drop Premium Dye Ink. The deer were die-cut from Black Licorice card stock.

Ready? Set. Comment!    

I had way too much fun creating my projects that I am sharing today. One of my favorite things to create is small gift type items. I love being able to give little treats like this. I created a set of small coffee cups in a caddy, with coordinating hot chocolate pouches. The coffee cups are the perfect size to fill with chocolates or other treats.

The coffee cups are tiny, they are 4oz cups. Each cup was wrapped in a piece of patterned paper. I added a snowflake from the Layered Snowflakes Die-namics to the top of each cup. I used an old template that I had to create the caddy for the cups. A larger snowflake was used on the front of each caddy. The sentiments are from the Snow Globe Sentiments stamp set.

The hot chocolate holders were incredibly easy to make. I used the same card stock and patterned papers that I had used on the coffee caddies. I wrapped each one with a piece of ribbon that I hoped would help to secure the sides. I also ended up adding the brads to help to keep the sides adhered.

For the three sets, I used three colors of card stock, Berrylicious, Red Hot, and Sour Apple. This really is one of my favourite colour combinations for Christmas.

The snowflakes were all die-cut in Smooth White card stock. Inside each snowflake I added a touch of glitter with the Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops.
