Challenge Card "Out of the Dumps"

A card to get you out of the DUMPS. I knew my friend Pam was feeling a little sad, so I challenged her to a totally random challenge between friends. I challenge her to use a tp roll, a music embossing folder that we both have, silver or gold, glitter and make it a Christmas card.  I embossed my tp roll with the music and I painted it white and added diamond glitter. I stamped and watercolored the snowmen and trees and fussy cut them out. I die cut another tp roll. I punched snowflakes out of a paper bag and added glitter and rhinestones. I finished it off with cheesecloth.  I love crafting with my friend Pam because we can start with similar supplies and get such different looks. Check out my friend Pam's card is HERE.

Fall -Winter coffee lovers blog hop gift card tag

I made this little snowman gift card tag using CUTplorations 
 I used the largest die to cut one tag out of paper that I monoprinted that had gold purple and teal colors. I stamped the two little snowman on the tag. I folded a piece of white cardstock and cut the tag leaving the fold a little short of the bottom part of the die so that it didn't cut the fold.
 On the white cardstock I used a scalloped punch to punch the top of the folded up edge. 

I  also punched holes on either side of the white cardstock to help hold twine.

I tied a piece of twine around the tag. 

I then stamped a little coffee cup and steam.

The little gift card fits just inside the pocket.

I glued the white gift card pocket to the back of the colored tag. I then stamped the snowmen again on white carstock and  colored and fussy cut them out.

I paper pieced the snowmen on the tag.

I added a little coffee cup for my snowman and added punched out snowflakes with glitter.

I added twine to the top of the gift card/tag.
