Christmas – Where Creativity Meets C9

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Christmas!!

Take a look at my tag:

For this tag, I used Concord & 9th Ornamental Dies. I die cut three red pieces and one white piece.  I used the additional die pieces to emboss the front of one of the red pieces.

Once all of the pieces are cut, put the ornamental tag together using Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.

To finish the tag off, add some glitter to the front of the tag and add sweater ribbon.

Lets take a look inside.

I love how this tag turned out!!  Nice and simple!!

What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

Take a look at my tag:

Here is how I created this tag:

I gather all of my supplies needed to create a tag:  Hero Arts Joyful Tiding Tag Set, Hero Arts Raspberry Ink, Hero Arts Black Ink, Lucy Abrams Ivory Sequin, We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool, We R Memory Keepers Photo Sleeves,  and Tombow Mono Adhesive Plus, We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile and a ColorBox Art Dauber.

I die cut three tags so that I could stack them on top of each other.  Then I used the sponge dauber to add some color using the Hero Arts Raspberry Jam Ink.

Once the top tag was inked to my liking, I adhered the two additional tags with Tombow Mono Adhesive Plus.

Once all of the pieces were in place, I used the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment on the tag.

Now the tag is ready to become a shaker.

I gathered all of the supplies need to create the shaker portion of the tag.

You need a We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool, We R Memory Keepers Fuseable Photo Sheets.

Place the finished tag inside the plastic and line the die up over it.  Use Washi tape to hold it down.  Then you want to glide the fuse tool around the die, sealing it.

Once you add the sequin is added inside, seal the top of the tag the same way you did the body of the tag.

Punch a hole using a We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile and string a piece of string.

Nice and easy! Super cool to create!

Guest Designer: Sparkle and Shine Challenge Part 2

Hello everyone!! I’m back again today with the Sparkle and Shine Challenge as the Guest Designer for the month.

Here is the photo inspiration that I used to create my card:

Sparkle and Shine

Take a look at my card:

Happiest of Holiday (S&S)

I have to say I struggle with this photo inspiration this time around.  At first I played with all of the colors in the photo and my daughter said no.  The colors were to dull.  So I decided to go with just two of the colors.

I stamped My Favorite Things Santa’s Elves tree and fussy cut them out.  Then I adhered them to my card front.  After that I added some sequin as ornaments on the tree.  Then I stamped the sentiment and I was done!!

Super easy!

So what do you think?  Please let me know.

This challenge runs for two weeks. You have until December 28, 2015 at 11:55pm to enter for a chance to win a super awesome prize!!

Supplies used:
