Christmas Tags (scalloped border die)

It's a long time that I don't use my "paper pads", so for these Christmas tags was it the right moment.
I used the Lawn Fawn "Stitched Scalloped Borders", "Tag, You're It", "Trim the Tree" dies.
And lawn trimmings "gold sparkle" and "peppermint" single cord

I put foam adhesive, so the Christmas trees had some dimension on the tags!

I'm  entering these tags in the Lawnscaping Challenge

For this card I started to stamp with the SSS "Drawn Hearts Background" on a white cardstock, using the "Brilliance" galaxy gold pigment ink. Then diecut the center of the card with "Sizzix" circle die.
I did stamp the envelope first, then mask it and then stamp the dog.
I colored the cute dog and the envelope with prismacolor and gamsol. Both stampset are from SSS, "You Are Pawesome", "Sending Happy Thoughts". And the die "Cat and Dog Pawesome".
For the background I used chalk.

This card is for the awesome grandpa in The Netherlands!!

Merry Christmas

After a few weeks of vacation, where we had a great time on the Disney cruise and Miami!! I decided to begin with my Christmas cards.
For this card I stamped the bulbs first, then "mask" them. And then I stamped the reindeer and the beer and also masked them, so I could work on the background.
I used "chalk" for the background, it blended softly.
I colored the animals with "prismacolor" and "gamsol".
For the snow I used "metallic" white marker and the sentiment I stamped it with "lobster" dye ink lawn fawn.
And ofcourse "glossy accents" on the bulbs.

Stamps Lawn Fawn: "Party Animal" and "Cozy Christmas".
Lawn Fawn die: "Stitched Circle Stackables".
