Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Yuletide Joy Stamp Set (October 2016 SOTM), City Sidewalks Paper Packet, Glacier Cardstock, Inks (Cranberry, Glacier, Pear), Marker Alphabet Stamp Set, and Sparkles.

I will admit that the stamping on this layout is a result of laziness.  My original plan was to emboss the stars and color in the poinsettia but I changed my mind and decided to just stamp the stars.  In choosing which colors to use I came up with the idea to rock-and-roll the tips in a second color.  I’m so pleased with the end result and glad my laziness worked out for the best. 😉

img_0195-1Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Perfect Presents Stamp Set, Art Philosophy Cricut Collection, Inks (Juniper, Crystal Blue, Peacock, Topiary, Cranberry, Fern, New England Ivy, Eggplant, Thistle, Pansy, Tangerine, Poppy, Sorbet, Saffron, Pomegranate, Sapphire, Gypsy, Pacifica, Cotton Candy), Shimmer Brush – Clear, Bitty Sparkles, Watercolor Pencils, and Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen.

This stamp set went on my wish list as soon as I saw it.  I like to make tags for gifts.  These were fun, easy, and didn’t take much time.  Don’t be afraid to use different colors either.  I used a variety of different colors to show you how they can look.  This was the first time that I used the Shimmer Brush and I absolutely LOVE it!  Here are some closeups where you can better see the Shimmer and other details.
