Today’s featured stamp set is the brand new holiday StampTV Kit -- Season's Greetings!
These beautiful holiday stamps were the perfect opportunity to add to my 2013 Advent tags, so here they are! (Click on any photo for a larger view. Details about all tags are at the bottom of this post).
1 - Santa (Season's Greetings) is getting ready for the holiday season, decorating his tree (Cheers Mini Set)! His ornament was cut out, glittered, and popped up on foam tape. The mini sentiment is also from the Cheers set.
15 - Look how beautifully these solid mug images stamp out with Gina's Color Companions Ink pad (Cherry Red)! Love the font in this gorgeous sentiment!
16 - Another beautiful sentiment from the kit, along with the separate fabulous kit ornament that I just stamped together!
17 - I love that this pretty deer has Christmas words etched into him!
11 - The big, beautiful snowflake-like frame makes a perfect photo frame or ornament! The inside measures right at 2 inches, absolutely perfect for a 2x3 wallet sized (school) photo! The outside of the frame measures just under 3-1/2 inches (a 3-1/2 inch die cut it out perfectly). I made this tag number coordinate with my youngest daughter's age. Her sister's school photos still haven't come in yet (and my printer was giving me fits last night!), so her #14 tag is ready and waiting for the photo to come home!
Details for all tags: Tami Mayberry's Simple Numbers stamp set was used for the numbers and the stitched line at the bottom of each Ivory Heavy Base Weight Pure Luxury Cardstock tag, stamped with Cherry Red Color Companions Ink. The tags are hand cut 5.50" tall x a little over 2.75" wide, yielding six tags per 8.50" x 11" piece of cardstock. The bottoms were trimmed with scalloped scissors and hole reinforcers were made from Cherry Red Pure Luxury Cardstock using 1/4 and 1/2-inch cirlce punches. Snowflakes were punched from Ivory Layering Weight Pure Luxury Cardstock and the centers accented with Mini Glue Dots and glitter. Each tag is finished with Red Hot Double Stitched Color Companions Ribbon.
Advent Calendar Tags 18-25 can be found HERE. And yes (as some of you have asked), I will show the complete Advent calendar as soon as it is finished! :) The tags will be hung on the same red frame I made for last year's calendar, which can be seen HERE.
