Christmas Ornament or Tag

Hi there! Hope you are having a great Thanksgiving! I'm over at my daughter's and we were playing with her stamps as the pie cook!!
Oh, I love some of her beautiful stamps and I just had to play with this gorgeous image "Poinsettia" by Power Poppy. I colored it with Copic's and then cut it out with Spellbinder die. Sponged with Angel Pink by Memento.

Another view with a different background.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

For my samples I used this gorgeous Die, provided by Die-Verions "Whispers- "Seasons Greetings Script" Product code: DVW-404". Isn't it pretty? Sure mades a quick and easy card. The beautiful images in all the samples are provided by Repeat Impressions.
Card one: "Poinsettia" #2012-W and the "Pine Branch" #2708-W
Card two: "Snowflakes" #8805
Card three:"Peppermint Candy" #9721-F

For this card I did emboss resist  for the background and did two die cuts with the white and blue card stock, then glued the blue one over the white just slightly over then glued in to the the card.

I used a clear gift box for my box of peppermint candy (not sure where I got these boxes from as I have had them for awhile). Anyway after filling the box I used the die twice once on red  and then again on white card stock.  Next I stamped the candy image using Versa Mark and red ink and clear embossing powder randomly on the white card stock. After removing the die it from the card stock I replaced the red for the white and glued it to the box.

Here is other view, sorry these photo's didn't do this justice.

We hope that we have inspired you to be creative, and that you'll do a bit of shopping at the Die-Versions and Repeat Impressions' websites!

Thanks for stopping by today!
