Purple Onion Holiday Tags.....

Hello everyone: With Christmas just around the corner, here at SHOPPING OUR STASH we want you to make some tags for all those gifts for family and friends that will go under your tree.
Tags are quick and easy to make, choose a pretty stamp and a sweet sentiment, use a die or a punch for the tag, string a festive ribbon and you are done.  Here is a couple of tags I made, hope it inspires you to make some and share them in our gallery.


First I punched the tags with the Stampin' Up! Scalloped Punch, I then embossed the left side with the retired Stampin' Up! Filigree Frame embossing folder and then, stamped my little images from the Stacey Yacula collection from Purple Onion Designs. Both the Jingle Bells and the Winterberry Small Snowman were stamped with Stazon black ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps dipped in baby oil. 
The sentiments are from the same collection. I punched a separate tag in red and blue as a background and I added a little white piece of card stock to write something. The ribbon is from my bottomless drawer and so is the metallic thread, I have a huge stash of this threads so I need to use them more.


Feel free to make any kinds of tags, they don't necessarily have to be for the Holidays, I just made these because I've been neglecting my Purple Onion stamps, they are so beautiful so I really don't know why I've been forgetting them.  This is the purpose of this challenge, to go dig out your neglected stuff, whether it's papers, embellishment, stamps, punches or dies, go on and Shop YOUR Stash and join us in the gallery and, while you're there, check out my teammates awesome tags so you can get even more inspired.
I would like to link this tags to the following challenges.

Peace on Earth.....

Hello everyone: This post is super late, I usually do my posts in the morning but I had some last minute shopping to do for my grandchildren so, it was totally necessary to venture out, although the moment I arrived at the Mall, I almost turned around, the parking lot looked like they were giving away the merchandise, sheeesh!!
But anyway, I have this quick card I whipped out a bit before I left, I just needed to take the pictures so I waited for the sun to come out to do that, it was really gray this morning.
I will link up this card to a few challenges at the end of this post.


This images are from the new Power Poppy by Marcella Hawley set calledWreaths Plain and Fancy, I stamped it onto plain white card stock with Stazon black ink and colored it with Prismacolor Pencils, I added a bit of spark with Dazzling Diamonds.  
The sentiment is from another amazing Power Poppy set called O Holy Night, and it was heat embossed in gold.

Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from the set "O Holy Night" and the little candle is from another Power Poppy set called Merry Littles, which is my "go to" set to adorn the inside of my cards.
