Christmas in July #2 Embossed Tags

Tags for a swap on

Requirements were that we had to use Tim Holtz #8 tags and have 2-3 embellishments whether embossing, die cuts, etc.

The foil paper I used is from the Dollar Tree.  The embossing folders are from Crafter's Companion and I used the Gemini die cutting machine to emboss and die cut the snowflakes and Santa.

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one!

Christmas in July- Red Vintage Truck

These are watercolor cards using two different red truck stamps.  I don't remember the brand as I took the stamp off the wooden block so I could use my Stamp Perfect stamper.

I used watercolor pencils from Michael's Artist Loft brand and also their watercolor paper.

The card bases and mattings are from The Paper Studio- 12 Days of Christmas Collection.  I'm hoping they bring it back again this year.  The sentiment stamps are from an American Crafts set I got from Tuesday Morning.

Hope you like.

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.

Christmas in July- Florida Style

Watercolor cards using stamps from Inkadinkado.  The set is called Warmest Wishes.

Used 90 lb watercolor paper from Michaels, their Artist Loft brand..  The watercolor pencils are also from Michaels' Artist Loft brand.  Used white Stickles for the Santa hats.

The matting and card base are from Michael's Craft Smith Mermaid Coast collection.  It is one of the hot buy pads.

Coloring is very calming . . . ah. . .

Hope you like.

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.
