Christmas

Christmas Gift Tags

Morning Stampers,

Did you know it is only 56 days until Christmas?

I know, I can’t believe it either and I haven’t even made a start on my Christmas cards yet.

So, to get started, I thought I would try a few quick and easy gift tags ready to add to all the gifts I am yet to think about purchasing!!!

Mosaic Madness Christmas Gift Tags
Mosaic Madness Christmas Gift Tags

Here I have used the Mosaic Madness Stamp Set. I stamped the same stamp 3 times using Raspberry Ripple Ink on White cardstock. I punched each one out with the coordinating mosaic punch, then scored each one down the centre. I glued them together to create the 3D ornament shape with Tombo Glue before adhering to the tiny cards. 

The base of the card is 5cm x 10cm, scored in the middle to create a 5x5cm card, The Raspberry Ripple cardstock is a 4x4cm square.

I added a little ribbon bow to finish it off!

Mosaic Madness Stamps and Coordinating Punch can be purchased as a bundle saving you 15%.

Masculine, Mosaic Madness

Black & Vanilla

Morning Stampers,

Don’t you just love the classic style of Black and White… well almost white, in this instance I have used Very Vanilla!

I have also used the new Core’dinations Card, embossed it with Modern Mosaic TIEF then sanded it with the Stampin’ Sanding System.

I also used the Paper Piercing Tools to add a border around the Very Vanilla panel, it just gives it a bit more interest!

I think the rest of the card is fairly self explanatory but do leave a comment what you think of this card.

Mosaic Madness

Folded Corner Card

Hello Followers,

Last night I decided to have a play and try some different styles I had not done before but have wanted to try for ages!

This Folded Corner Card is so easy and very effective.

Pretty much with 2 cuts that meet; 1.5cm in from the top edge & the side of the card, it creates a square.

Fold it under and away from you and crease it into place.
