Today is the second day Michele at Purple Onion is showcasing some of her design team`s holiday projects. I decided that since I needed some gift tags, I should make some this year and I am very happy with how they`ve turned out... in fact, I don`t want to put them on gifts in case they get thrown away! These images are sized perfectly for tags so I used several I had on hand. Before I get to telling you about the tags, I do want to remind you there is a Black Friday sale at Purple Onion. All stamps are 25% off until December 10th, plus there will be some additional Black Friday specials which will also be included in the 25% off sale. These stamps will have an additional 25% off the sale price listed on the website. To celebrate the recent releases and this sale, there are daily posts by the design team showcasing the images so make a point to stop by the Purple Onion Blog and see what the team has come up with.Silver and I set him on the Winter Bough image and then embossed a sentiment from the Handwritten Holiday set which is designed by Jennifer Holmes and Purple Onion Designs. The pink trees are also Stacey`s Snowy Trees. Distressing was done with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink and of course I had to add some glitter and Frantage. I also discovered a fab way to do the little bells and am now thinking I am really quite smart! hahahha... I rolled the bells in Versamark and then dunked them into the Shabby Blue Frantage jar and heat embossed them.
Danson Decorating, Jingle Bells and Joy. The big antique gold brad is Stampin`Up and again, more bells dunked into Frantage. This time I used Aged Ochre and just love it because it looks a lot like rusty bells. The sentiments are from the same Handwritten Holiday set.
Handwritten Holiday sentiments. The cookies and milk image is called Dear Santa, the cute little snowman is Winterberry and the tree is named Large Pine Tree.
My last project in this post was Michelle asked us to make our own wrapping paper plus a matching card or tag. Mine is very simple, I took a piece of printed paper and heat embossed one of the sentiments from the Handwritten holiday set in gold. The tag is another made with the Silver and Winter Bough images with the brad being Stampin`Up and the ribbon from my stash.
