Christmas in July Stampin' Up! Tags

This is one of my favourite tags from the Christmas in July Class that was run at Botanix on Saturday. Everyone made 10 Christmas tags (2 each of 5 designs) as well as decorating 2 tins to put them in. This particular tag features the snowflake Stampin' Around Wheel with Whisper White Craft Ink, Heat and Stick Powder, and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. Gold Cardstock from the Metallics pack made the perfect foundation for this mini masterpiece. The glitter brads were created by adhering a mini glue dot to the top of a silver brad and then dipping into glitter. Paper Angels are in the process of mapping out our Christmas Workshop, which will be held on the 6th of October at the Carina Leagues Club. We have some great projects planned and it is going to be a great day. Invitations for this event will be mailed out within the next fortnight.

Same Design | Different Stampin' Up! Colours

Once you have created or copied a design that you like, I suggest recreating it in different colour schemes. Inspiration for changing the colour scheme may come from the photographs, the fabulous Stampin' Up! colour wheel or even magazine layouts are a great source of beautiful colour combinations. On the above examples, I used Elegant Eggplant, Real Red and More than Mustard; using the same stamps and design from the previous posting.

Matching Cranberry Card and Page

Simple striking colour combinations such as Cranberry Crisp, Cool Caribbean and Marigold Morning are worth repeating, and so I have created a matching card and page. Both of these projects feature Stampin' Up's Hostess Set - Riveting as well as the stamp set Shelly so kindly gave Stampin' Up Consultants at Christmas - Seeing Spots. These projects are made ever so faster using the companion circle punches. The striped section on the card was created using the Background Sampler Set - expect to see heaps more of that stamp set!
