Creative Confetti -

It is the season of giving and that's what this challenge at Power Poppy, Creative Confetti is all about.  Make a gift that you would give to someone.
Well, there are a lot of gifts that a crafty person could make to give, and I picked tags.  Special tags for special gifts. These are digital tag images from Power Poppy called, Birch and Evergreens, Wreath: Felt leaves and fruits, and Candy cane classic.
Here you go! A gift of four tags for someone who wraps their Christmas gift with special care.

 One for a masculine gift.  I did use novo drops to just the branches. Dry embossed the tag with a brick pattern.  

This one is all glittered up for a more feminine gift. I sprayed it with glimmer spray and added novo drops to the berries. Just a few rhinestones.  If you don't have the right color ribbon, use your ink pad to color it.

This is a softer and grand tag with clear novo drops to the fruit. 

This is my favorite one.  The ribbon is gold and has clear novo drops to it.   By the way, this is a free digital image.  Just saying, what are you waiting for?  Go get it. 
 I will be entering these tags in the Creative Confetti challenge for this week.  You need to enter too.
Thanks for dropping in, I do love and appreciate the comments.

Double D challenge - Run Run Rudolph

We crafty people who make cards should be sending them out to our friends and relatives, so that means you need to get going and make some cards to send out this Holiday season.  I know that I have been making them for a few months and now I have enough.  This is a great time to add just one more to the pile and enter into this challenge offered by Team Diane this week.  You can make any kind of deer.  Here is my card inspiration for you this challenge.
This is all die cuts and was made quickly. 
 Nice for a Christmas card or a winter Birthday or Hello card too.  
I used the DieNamics, Deer Love and Memory Box, Tall Birch dies.  I hand cut the snow drifts and sponged a little blue on the edges and then some glitter. The moon is just a circle punch. Of course, I colored the deer nose red.  He could be Rudolph. 

Oh Yes, There is a prize for the random winner.

Come and join the design team at Double D. I can't wait to see what you all do, it is always so inspiring. Yes, I get inspiration everywhere, especially from you. 

Thanks for dropping in and taking time to leave a comment.

Snowflakes are Beautiful

I was cleaning up my craft room and found a lovely die cut that a friend sent to me and wanted to use it in this Challenge from Dies R Us.  We are to use snowflakes.  
Here is the quick card I made this morning. 
For this card, I made a base of light gray and layered chocolate brown on top.  The design paper is from a Recollections paper pad called Christmas.  I put some rhinestones in the center of some of the snowflakes and also used some Glossy accents on them. Over the top of that, is the die cut from Memory box called Batavia Snowflake Oval. The sentiment is from the paper pack as well.  Pretty quick and simple.
I will also enter this in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.
Thanks so much for leaving a comment.  I do appreciate them.

Creative Confetti - Tic Tac Toe

One last card for this month to join in the Creative Confetti at Power Poppy.  I made a quick one for this challenge and used the top row on the grid board. Using the Power Poppy stamp called Holly Golightly I stamped the image of holly with versamark and silver embossing powder.  Then I fussy cut the tag from that set and colored it with markers and pencils.
Here is my card. 
I followed the top row from the grid and used the Red, Silver, and Embossing.  The card has a Green Apple card stock base from Gina K Designs and a layer of silver then the top layer with the design on it.  The tag is adhered with foam tape to give it some dimension.  I added some Wink of Stella and neuvo drops to the holly. 

This was a busy month for me, how about you?  So thanks for stopping in to take a closer look.  I do appreciate your comments.
