Sparkle Christmas Tag Stampendous

Hi, my dear crafty friends, welcome back to the new challenge. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge we are challenging you to make something glittery - "SPARKLE MODE".  We are showcasing Stampendous Products this week! Stampendous are celebrating their very special 40th Anniversary! You don’t have to use Stampendous Products to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used, especially as this is such a special occasion!

 I was inspired to create a mixed media Christmas tag using Stamperia Christmas Patchwork Clear Stamps and added the snow with Studio Katia Chunky Sparkle Glitters. The holiday sentiments were from Stampendous Clear Stamps Brushed Greetings and Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Christmas Remnant Rubs.

I started this project with trimming the watercolor paper into a size 8 tag. The house image was stamped with black ink pad, and colored with watercolors. I also colored the background with watercolors. The sentiments were from Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Christmas Remnant Rubs and stamped with Stampendous Clear Stamps Brushed Greetings. I really love the beautiful sparkle glitters as snow on the roofs of these tiny house. Hope you liked my sparkle holiday tag, and got inspired to join us for this week's challenge. Happy crafting!

Winter Christmas ATCs

Hey, my dear friends, welcome back to the new challenge. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge our theme is "ATCs". Iwas inspired to create Christmas winter ATCs using Stamperia Classic Christmas 6X6 Paper, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Tiny Clips, Typed Tokens and Small Talk Stickers.

To start this project, I trimmed the patterned paper from Stamperia Classic Christmas 6X6 Paper into two 3.5"X2.5" cards for ATC background. They were distressed with the blending tool and Distress In Pads, and outlined with a black pen. The small tags and desert images were also cut out from the same paper collection. 

The paper embellishments were adhered on the ATCs using double sided tapes. I colored the Tim Holtz tokens with Distress Paints and attached them on the tag with double sided tapes, too. The sentiment stickers were from Tim Holtz Small Talk Sticker Book. I finished off these two ATCs with splattered white Gesso and water mixture to create the snowflakes.
