A couple of reverse confetti Christmas cards


I have a couple  of Christmas cards to share today that I made using the


For my first card, I started with some Pink Paislee patterned paper for my background.
I stamped my sentiment (from Seasonal Sentiments) in gold onto a strip of cardstock that I made into a banner by diecutting the end of it with the bottom of the largest tag from Tag Me.
(To continue the embossed edges along the sides, I used my score-buddy.)
Some Pink Paislee embellishments & twine finish it off.

For my second card, I used some more Pink Paislee patterned paper and embellishments.


I stamped my sentiment (again, from Seasonal Sentiments) onto a cardstock panel.
I adhered a couple of pine boughs that I fussy cut from the patterned paper,
some twine & a Pink Paislee embellishment and then adhered my panel
to my card using dimensional adhesive.

Advent Calendar Tags & Coordinating Cards, Days 22 & 23

I was inspired to create a new Advent Calendar this year.
I've made 24 numbered tags that I'm displaying on an old window that
will hang on my kitchen wall.

For each tag, I also have a card to share that I made, inspired by the tag.
(You can see my previous tags & cards here.) 

For Day 22's tag, I used PTI's Shaker Shapes: Square dies
with some Teresa Collins patterned paper.


The numbers were diecut using PTI's Book Print Number dies.
I diecut the snowflake using Wplus9's  Snowflake Trio dies and finished
it off with a PTI button.

I used the same patterned paper for my coordinating card.


Again, I used the Wplus9 Snowflake Trio dies.
stamped my sentiment using Reverse Confetti's Seasonal Sentiments.

For Day 23's tag, I used PTI's Shaker Shapes: Tree and the Wplus9 Snowflake Trio dies.


And for my coordinating card, I used some My Mind's Eye patterned paper as my
card base and diecut the tree from some white cardstock. 


Overtop, I adhered two stamped banners and the stamped bird from PTI's Songbirds.
A couple of buttons finish it off.

Before I go, I wanted to also share the tags that I made for Jonah & Sage's teachers' gifts, 


For all of them, I used Wet Paint Holidays stamps and dies, and PTI's Tag Sale 5.
