Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
Wow - the last couple of weeks have been some doozies! Between the holidays, my computer crashing and dealing with this crud, I don't know if I'm coming or going these days!
I think I may be beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel (and please Lord, don't let it be the train)! My house if finally free of Christmas decorations, my wifi is working again, and while these headache issues seem to be hanging on, I am finally feeling better.
Once I started feeling better, I got the itch to get my hands inky! And, I knew just what stamp set I wanted to play with. When the "Jingle All The Way" set by My Favorite Things was first released, I was totally smitten - what an adorable little Santa! But, by the time I tried to order it, it was already sold out. I finally got my hands on the set a couple of weeks before Christmas....and...well....you've already heard that sad story.
Anyway, I finally had a chance to (and felt like) getting inky - so better late than never! Let's just look at it as starting my stash for next Christmas....
Putting these tags together was the most fun I've had in days!
I used the Stitched Rectangles and Stitched Circles Die sets from Lawn Fawn to create my tags. The larger mats were cut from red cardstock and the smaller from white cardstock. Using some Distress Ink in "Salty Ocean", I inked up the white mat. I used the Hillside Borders Die by Lawn Fawn to cut a smaller mat which I covered in Clear Rock Candy Glitter for a snowy effect.
Using the "Falling Snow" stencil by Simon Says Stamp and some white embossing paste, I created a snowy background. I sprinkled on a bit of the Clear Rock Candy Glitter before the embossing paste was dry giving the background a pretty shimmer.
All of my images are colored with Copic markers and I added a tiny white pom pom to the Santa hats. I pop-dotted the images onto each tag adding a few embellishments here and there.
And there you go....the beginning of next year's Christmas stash!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and thank you again for all the well-wishes, it really means a lot to me. You ladies are the best ♥
Have a wonderful day and I hope to see you soon....
