Candy Canes & Plaid

I'm keeping it fairly simple with my Christmas crafting as I can get more done that way. This time I have used a sketch from the Power Poppy challenge. I don't use sketches often, but they do help a lot in moments when you're staring at the supplies wishing for inspiration to hit!
I've kept the background colours pretty neutral to let the colours of the candy canes pop ('Candy Cane Classic').  I usually colour these only red and white, but after doing a whole load in sepia for a friend, I wanted to do something more colourful.

Products used:
  • Card blank
  • Kraft card
  • Plaid papers
  • Gems
  • X-Cut scalloped circle die
  • Ribbon
  • Distress Ink - Walnut Stain
  • ProMarkers - Holly, Lush Green, Green, Cardinal, Poppy, Red, Cool Grey 1-3, Pine, Forest Green, Leaf Green, Crimson, Berry Red, Lipstick Red, Black, Cool Grey 5
  • Prismacolor pencils - Black, Dark Green & Tuscan Red
  • Posca Paint Pen - White
  • Wink of Stella - Clear

A Little Surprise

It's that time of year when I'm kicking my Christmas crafting up a notch.  I have managed to make a few cards over the months, but as usual I leave most of it until this month. 
I've made a ton of cards lately, having had a couple of orders for them, so I thought I'd change things up and make some tags.  I had fun doing something a little different from what I normally do and made two tags together....the back one hides a surprise!!  The front tag features 'Wryn's Baubles' from Tiddly Inks.

Products used:
  • Kraft card
  • Black card
  • MME Sleigh Bells Ring designer paper
  • Merry Christmas die
  • Tag Die
  • Eyelet
  • Corner rounder punch
  • Twine
  • Liquid Pearls - Brass & White Opal
  • Stickles -Red
  • Sakura Gelly Roll - Gold & White
  • ProMarkers - Cinnamon, Tan, Dusky Pink, Satin, Cocoa, Saddle Brown, Raw Sienna, Crimson, Poppy Red, Holly, Lush Green, Gold, Sunflower, Yellow, Black, Cool Grey 5, Burgundy, Cardinal, Ruby, Lemon, Soft Lime, Apple, Meadow Green & Warm Grey 1-4
  • Prismacolor - Dark Green, Dark Brown, Blush Pink & Crimson Red 


I added a bit of fun to the image with some polka dots

I continued the polka dot theme on the second tag

The second tag has a pocket for a gift card

I am entering my tags into the following challenges:

  1. Tiddly Inks - #231 Gift Tag Goodness
  2. The Corrosive Challenge - #11 ATG
  3. CRAFT Challenge - #535 Christmas
  4. Pammie's Inky Pinkies - #1946 ATG
