Hey there! As I write this post the weekend is winding down. I always love playing along with Color Throwdown so I just had to make a card. Since I wanted to get the card done quickly I pulled out one of my favorite stamp sets from Stampin Up! Kinda Eclectic to get the job done. This set has lots of fun images that are great for layering and it is one stamp set that I do not think I will ever get rid of. Once I had everthing stamp I die cut the panel and adhered it to a white cardstock base. All the inks are from Catherine Pooler. Because the brown I used seems to be a little dark, almost black, I decided to add some brown sequins that I found in my stash to the card to finish things off.
Now for my tag. I think every year around this time I often mention that I don't make many tags. The only reason I usually make a tag or two is because of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags. I haven't been following along closely with all of the festivities, but I did happen to see Tracey's tag from day 3 on Instagram and I couldn't get it out of my head. I had recently purchased a stamp set from Stampin Up! called Joyful Holly and thought it would be perfect to use for a tag. I used the color combo from The Paper Players for my little tag so I will be posting it there, as well. I die cut the tag and then stamped the outline image in VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne and then added the layers using Altenew Hunter for the leaves and Velvet for the berries. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark watermark ink on vellum and then heat embossed in silver. I die cut the sentiment with a sentiment strip die from AJVD and adhered it with rolled up glue dots. I finished off the tag with some red ribbon that I tied with hunter green twine. Before tying the bow I added red and green bells.
