Creation Station: It's Christmas Time!


Good Morning!  Welcome to our December Blog Hop - this month we are focusing on the Holidays!  We'll be highlighting projects created with the Peaceful Pines Bundle and the Embellished Ornaments Bundle.  

I've decided to use the Embellished Ornaments bundle today.....but, here's the scoop.  I've only used the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits.  What I love about this bundle is that the Thinlits work SO well on their own - you don't HAVE to use the stamp set.  Here's my first project - a set of gift tags:



I've paired these ornaments up with two other stamp sets - Oh What Fun and Berry Merry.  I really like all of the fun building elements in Berry Merry.  So, I mounted several of them onto a block and stamped them a bunch of times.  Then....sat with a good tv show and fussy cut them out!  I really don't mind fussy cutting - it's like therapy.  

Here are some close ups of all of the tags:







One more project I created:

Once again - I die cut just the ornaments.  The Pool Party ornament I backed with a plain White one, otherwise, it was going to be too busy with the green one showing thru the back.  


I used the Merry from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits, with the coordinating Holly Jolly Greeting Stamp Set for the Christmas portion.  That is simply heat embossed in white on black.  I feel like this combo really draws your eye to the focal point.  

 Once again, I used the little bits from the Berry Merry set - I had PLENTY leftovers from the tags!
This is all placed on a card front that's got a panel from the Winter Wonderland Vellum Stack. I love the snowflake look in gold!   

Well - I hope you've been inspired a little - be prepared to be even more inspired as you travel around the Creation Station using the buttons below!

LOVE the tags! Great idea and I agree with Holly, need some kraft wrapping paper for them to POP! The card is EXCELLENT! Great details!

You gals have read my mind - I've already got my brown paper and will be wrapping presents in the coming week! Can't wait to see these tags on the gifts!

Jen--I love these chalkboard tags! They're simply stunning! I'm "squirreling" a bit over the baker's twine swirling through the ornaments on the card...I almost missed the beauty of the card. Well done!!
