Just a little heads up. I’m up on the blog today for my friends over at the Simon Says Stamp! I’m sharing a couple cards over there that were put together with the Garden Leaves by Cath Edvalson die from Technique Tuesday.
The die is one of my favorite TT products… and one of my favorite Cath products too! Here’s a peek!
This link will take you to the post where you can see the whole card and another one.
By the way, there’s Simon Says Stamp! blog candy involved so be sure to check it out!
I’m challenging it up today with the My Favorite Things Design Team for the monthly Creative Challenge.
This month’s challenge this month is to create a quick, 10-minute gift!
Literally, this project would be a 10-minute project, if you recreated it!
It’s all about making the tag. I chose to tie my onto a tube of candy but you could go bigger, way bigger. Imagine tying one like onto a big jar of sweets, a bottle of wine or even a bag of candy canes.
The tag looks simple, but it took a few steps to make it. I cut out the small circle twice. Once I did it from patterned paper and once I did it from cardstock. Then I cut the large circle from red cardstock.
I took the white circle and cut the tree (from the Tag Builder Blueprints 2 Die-namics) into it. I laid all the circles together and popped a hole on top.
I finished the tag off with a sentiment from Lisa Johnson’s Trim the Tree stamp set. And I tossed on a few sequins. I think those little details just made it a bit sweeter. Don’t you agree?

See you again soon.
And we made it! Today is the last day of this year’s 12 (Christmas Cards) in 12 (Days) challenge with Ashley.
It seems like it went so fast this year!
So meet card #12.
Played it a little more of the artsy side here with some patterned papers from Simple Stories and then some stamped words and splatters from the Brushstroke Christmas stamp set from Ellen Hutson.
The mistletoe was cut with a die from the Poinsettia and Pine dies from Ellen Hutson as well. Ok, I think it’s mistletoe. I don’t know vegetation well so let us just pretend it is if it’s not. 😉 I added the bow with a bit of twine from Whisker Graphics and plopped on some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Sure dig those Sparkling ones.
So that’s what I have for you.
Excited to see how Ashley wraps up this year’s series. Thanks for stopping in, guys! Always a treat!
Almost to the end of the 12 (Christmas Cards) in 12 (Days) challenge with Ashley.
This is my take on Day 11.
I built the card around the fun little squares that I cut from a piece of Simple Stories patterned paper. I embellished each one by adding a little stamping (stamps from Technique Tuesday) and a few embellishments.
Got to admit that the “no comment” one is probably my favorite. The blank line just screamed for a “no comment” answer. Stamped the “no comment” and “x” with the Williamsburg – Small alphabet stamp set from Technique Tuesday.
Over and out. That’s what I have. Can’t wait to see Ashley’s take on Day 11.
Be back again tomorrow with the conclusion of this year’s 12 in 12 challenge. Hope to see you then.
So close to the end of this year’s 12 (Christmas cards) in 12 (days) challenge with Ashley.
Here is my take on the challenge today.
This is one that just came together with stuff left on my desk from when working on some of the other cards I’ve put together lately. Most of the stuff on this one is from Simple Stories. Some of it’s been around awhile. 😉
Can’t see what Ashley made to share with you today. Take it away, Ash!
Be back again later, gators. Thanks for swinging by.
