SSCB#24 - Gift or Gift Tag!!

This time the Serendipity Stamps challenge is to make a gift or gift tag using a stamp or die!! So many choices!!

I have certainly been in a tag making mood lately!!

Well, I ended up decorating a gift bag and making a tag... just having too much fun!! I stamped the Holly from the Holly with Frame cling set onto XPress It cardstock and colored with copics. After I fussy cut the images they were popped up onto a black background and I added some crystal effects to the berries. The little gift bags were stamped with a Serendipity Snowflake Flourish, tone on tone. If you click on the pic below- you can see them- perfect little touch IRL.

For the tag, I die cut a spellbinder die with chipboard and covered with patterned paper on both sides. If you add a little tag with "To and From", it can be removed and the resulting tag becomes an ornament or other decoration for the holidays!!

Hope you find time to join us, and...

The rules are simple... play along using at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your submission and link it below. You don't have to have a blog to play along - you can link your designs to any on line gallery.

Wow these are so pretty Vickie! The bag is just as nice as what would be in it. I would leave this out all season as a decoration- they're beautiful.

Wonderful Vickie! You always have such great color contrast. The black and white gingham really looks super with the holly stamp you colored. Happy Thanksgiving!

Miriam said...

Nice Vickie! Love how you show it 2 different ways. Will have to get this stamp out and start coloring.
