All wrapped up

So are you ready? As only six more sleeps till our gifts are given, New and old happy memories are shared and made. Or are you like me still wrapping and making gifts tags. So today I just wanted to share with you the tags I have made to go with my gift wrapping paper. Just a little effort and your gifts will look fab.
I needed tags to go on my gifts, didn't have any to match my paper so made these little gems.
I used lost and found paper, this was from my scraps box, Cut the tag shape free hand. Added some silver stickles and did a scroll pattern. Added the glitter glass to edges to give the frosty ice appearance to edges. Added the spellbinders shapeabilities Fleur de lis pendant to top of tag this was folded in half then secured with eyelet.
Then I cut out Tim holtz bird from the caged bird die cutter. Cut him out in card, took a page from my old falling apart dictionary and cut the bird out again, glued this to card. Used my embossing pen to add ink to places I wanted the embossing powers to stick too then added gold embossing powder and heat set. Did the wings the same way but after heat setting the gold embossing powder, went over again with embossing ink pen and added black embossing powder and heat set again. This gave the two tones of colour on wings. Added few feathers.

So here's the finished look. Added rustic twine and little bell. Tied bow around gift and added the tag.
Hope you all have a lovely Christmas.

Simply Gorjuss - Snowman stamp card

I liked the the tissue box I made for the the paperlane challenge - unconventional Christmas colours challenge.. (which is still and active challenge so hurry and get your entries in. This months prize is a copic markers storage case) I have 2 of these for my copic markers and I love it. So get your entry in to try win your copic markers storage case.
So as I was just saying I loved making the tissue box that I had to make a card to go with it. So this card has a lot of the same elements and technique's as the tissue box.
So the stamp of the snowman I used is by Simply Gorjuss
To picture the glitter on this card ( there's lots on this card trust me) is very hard to get it to sparkle on camera. Must be a little camera shy.
The card looks so much better in person.
I used the organza snowflake fabric again over the black card for extra sparkle.
There is so many layers and so much happening on this card but it all works
fabric over black card
white card layered with black swirl paper enhanced with stickles on swirls
memory box FROSTYVILLE BORDER Craft Die
also used the magnolia doohickey die
matted and layered the image
coloured with copic marker pens and added glitter glass
added some  holographic snowflakes thats I have had for years
also added black stick on crystals
topped off with a white snowflake chocolate box tied bow.

Unconventional Christmas Colours - This months paperlane challenge

Good Morning, This months challenge at the paperlane Is
So the colours that are out of bounds are Red, Green, and Blue!!!
So for this  Challenge I thought I would make a cute little tissue box. With this been the season we tend to get sniffles a snuffles. I think this will look great on your desk and would make good little gift to cheer someone up whos got a snotty nose.
So my unconventional Christmas colours were, blacks, grey, with a hint of purple
I really enjoyed making this. I used the pocket sized packs of tissues, Made the little box for tissues to go into, using my score board. Used spellbinders die to cut out tissue window
Added the back board to tissue box ready to decorate.
Don't you just love this cute snowman stamp by Simply gorjuss.
I coloured him with copic markers then added glitter/glass. Its more like crushed glass than glitter. The name of it escapes me, but the sell it at thepaperlane 
Anyway I added this crushed glass to the head of the snowman and to parts of his body. Also to the snow drifts. The snow drifts were created by making a paper mask,  I ripped up post - it note paper
To give the ragged edge put it on image and used black on cut and dry foam to sponge on the drifts.

For the background I used the resist technique. After stamping the snowman I masking him off, Then used the snowflake stamp with versa embossing ink, added embossing powder, heat set it.
Then used black ink with the cut and dry foam over the stamped snowflakes,
to created the snowing night sky.
I used the beautiful black / grey coloured papers behind image. Cut to size layered it on white card.
Added silver stickles to the swirls on the paper. Added the ribbons. The Martha Stewart branch punch was used to add a little extra decoration. The sentiment I have used is from Craft stamper magazine. which you can buy from paperlane. I used the black crystal stones for snowman's eyes and around the card to add extra sparkle. Used the Tim holtz vintage market die to create the lettering.
Think that's about it. If I missed anything out and want to know how I did it. or what I used, just drop me a comment.

I hope you like it and that I have inspired you to join us this month paperlane challenge
