The Craft's Meow November Blog Hop!! =)

Pin It

Hello!!
Welcome to the November Blog Hop with The Craft's Meow!!
Today we are sharing some Christmas Inspiration!!
You should be coming here from the Awesome Blog of Karen Baker!!
I decided it would be FUN to share some ideas on ways you could use your Stamps to Dress Up some of your Holiday Gifts!!  I LOVE making Cards for the Holiday's, but beings I already have all of the supplies I have really enjoyed the process of using my Stamps to create some Festive Holiday Packages too!! So here are some quick and simple ways to add a Handmade Touch to those Special Gifts!!


For my first Project I decided to create a Gift Card Holder using the WPlus 9 Envelope die!! I stamped the deer from the Christmas Blessing Set in Versa Mark and then used the Sticky Stuff to emboss it and added some Barn Door Distress Glitter!! I LOVE how this looks!! Then I wanted to distress the rest of the Envelope so I stamped the Postage Stamp from the Holiday Poinsettia Set!! I added a Sentiment from the Inside Christmas Set and the To: and From: also from the Holiday Poinsettia Set added a bow to keep it closed and my Gift Card Envelope was finished!!

I used a Tag Die from PTI and stamped the Northern Star from the Christmas Blessing Set and embossed it using Tarnished Gold Embossing Powder!! I added some Iced Spruce Distress Ink to make it look like and evening sky and then stamped a Sentiment from the Holiday Poinsettia Set!! For the back of the Tag I stamped the To: and From: ontop of another Northern Star Image and added a bow and some twine!! These would be so easy to make a bunch of and give for Holiday Gifts in sets of 10 or 20!! You could even use different tag shapes to make them even more FUN!!
 For my last Project I have used a Gift Card Holder from PTI and die cut it out of kraft cardstock!! I stamped and embossed the Holly Image form the Christmas Lantern Set and then water colored it in using my Faber-Castell Aquarelle Water Color Pencils!! I added a light green tint to the whole card!! I stamped the Sentiment from the Inside Christmas Set and added it to the center of the Tag!!  I LOVE how Simple yet classic this Tag is and I think you could dress this up by stamping and embossing the whole card base it you wanted!! So many options with these!!
So I hope I have Inspired you to use your Stamps for some AMAZING Holiday Package Ideas!! You're next stop is the Very Talented Blog of Lin Brandyberry!!

Last year I decorated gift bags for all of my presents - rather than wrapping them (which I hate to do). I enjoyed seeing the way you decorated your gifts. thanks for the ideas.

All 3 projects are beautiful but I am drawn to the clever idea of how you used a tag for the closure on your envelope. Great idea.
