MC Nov/18 - Easel Xmas Word Tree - ECD Joy, Love, Peace, Merry Christmas - What Is Christmas


quietfirecreations.blogspot.ca
My turn on the Quietfire Creations blog today - I recently saw something that inspired and clicked in my brain... an Xmas word tree rubber stamp, so I thought I'd create one using Suzanne's word dies. BIG GRIN

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Flourished Circle - Joy, Love, Peace"; 4pce set, I'm using this love because I wanted something larger than what was in the floruished circle set - "Love" and  "Merry Christmas" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE, HERE and HERE

MC Oct/18 - Xmas Gift Tags - ECD Flourished Minis - Don't Even Think


To celebrate the new release, we're having a week long celebration and a giveaway! REMEMBER THE DEADLINE FOR COMMENTING ON ALL THE POSTS IS SUNDAY OCT 7 - midnight PDT

To be eligible to win, leave a comment on each blog post on the Quietfire Creations Blog from September 28th through to Friday, October 5th, 2018.  We'll randomly choose three winners and send out one of the new dies to each winner! Good Luck everyone.


And with my leftovers I created 3 gift tags using the Flourished Minis collection. Quick and easy to do...

I am also using one of the newest rubber stamps sets from Quietfire Design Christmas Sweet and Sassy 6pce set

I die cut the reindeer, mittens and Ho Ho Ho from white textured cardstock. Used a marker to color the details for the mittens. Adhered the various designs to the green, blue or red cardstock leaving part of the flourish above the tag edge to thread my ribbon. Used a large corner rounder punch and rounded the corners.

Used my Tim Stampin Platform and stamped the words using Versamark (it was juicier than my white stamp pad...) and embossing with white embossing powder.

Adhered the cream toned narrow ribbon to the back of the tag adding a punched heart  to hide the ends.

And it fits for these challenges:
