Dear Santa Tag (Pion Design/Green Tara)

I made this oversized 6-inch tag to put on a large parcel, using a mix of Pion Design papers including the Christmas vintage image sheet. All the embellishments, except for the crochet flower, are Green Tara products - white roses, white spray, blue cherry blossom and white lace. The "Dear Santa" was stamped - oh I have so many word stamps I never use so I decided to dust this one off, LOL. I may need to make another one of these tags and use it as a cute door hanger.

My inspiration came from this gorgeous TCR palette #87.

Thanks for stopping by today! Scroll to the next post if you missed the information about the awesome Scrap That! card/tag challenge (13 prizes to be won!) with an AWESOME Pion Design Grand Prize.

Wish Card *Pion Design*

This is one of MANY Christmas cards I have made so far (just can't reveal most of them yet, stay tuned!). I'm not a card maker but... I have been inspired by so many artists this year and by the beautiful Pion Design papers (Waiting for Santa 2 collection) and also their vintage image sheets. I really got into making cards for this holiday season. I used a Martha Stewart corner punch to create the look of a die cut on the cream paper.

Here is a close-up of my handmade poinsettia. It is a variation of the technique used in my wild roses - using 2 punched out 6-petal daisy layers (instead of using a rounded tip 5-petal flower punch). I also extra pinched the pointed tips and glued in various pearl beads in the middle. All of my flower tutorials can be found in the right sidebar of this blog. Use them as a guide and play with whatever dies or punches you have to make your own creations!

Here is the gorgeous TCR palette #86 I used as inspiration for this project. I just love this masculine palette!

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back soon with so much more to reveal!
