25 Days of Christmas Tags

Happy Day! Today, I have the good fortune to share a fun tag for Tracey and Technique Tuesday’s collaboration on the 25 days of Christmas Tags! If you haven’t already been there, please be sure to go to my sweet friend, Tracey McNeely’s Blog to check out the entire series up until today, Day 13, and going forward.

I’m sharing a tag with one of my favorite Technique Tuesday sets,  String of Lights Stamp Set colored with Copic Markers.

Gah! Love these lights! This is not Copic friendly paper, so I rolled the dice to try to blend out the colors a smidge, and it worked! I normally blend like crazy, but I just had to keep myself in check so the colors did not bleed. I love how this turned out!

Psssst…There is a Progressive Sale going on over at Technique Tuesday right now HERE! Select items are now 50% off, (Nov 11 – 17: Discount increases to 50% off with coupon code GoodLuck18). If you really want something on your list, I recommend snagging it now. Ask me how I know, ha! I’ve learned the hard way in the past. Because once it’s gone, it’s gone!

October Release Countdown, Day 2 from Technique Tuesday!

Welcome to Day TWO of Technique Tuesday’s October Release Countdown! Today’s is as fun as yesterday’s!

Today I used the VERY soon to be released Bow on the Border Die. This bow is so bold it really holds a card all on its own—fabulousness! It’s great for the holidays, but I think I like it more for anytime of the year! 🙂 The sentiment is from the new String of Lights Stamp Set. (*Links will work when the new products are released tomorrow, October 1st)

I die cut the bow on the border of a panel and inlaid the patterned paper, tying a gift tag on. I was intending to make a birthday card, but then this red and white striped card happened and then it became about the holidays. ❤

Technique Tuesday: Day 1 of the October Release Countdown

Today we are showing Day One of the Technique Tuesday countdown to the new October release! Oh happy day! 🙂

Today I am sharing a FAVE of mine from the NEW String of Lights Stamp Set colored with colored pencils. Holiday lights are one of my favorite iconic images for the holidays and I was sooooo happy to see these new stamps!! (Links will work on October 1st, release day.) I have another card to share another day with these cute lights.

I colored the lights with colored pencils. I haven’t used my pencils in a long while, so I fear my skills are needing to be dusted off. Not completely loving how this card ended up, now that I see it in a photo. But that’s half the fun: Improving and practice! LOVE these lights!!

Be sure to check out the NEW products from Technique Tuesday HERE! (The new product above will be available via its link on October 1!)
