Nordic Christmas Tags...

I find that I am so inspired this time of year by pictures in Quilting Magazines! They have all the quilts displayed with all the homey Christmas fabrics... I am especially drawn to the Nordic prints...your reds and creams! So after being to the grocery store this morning and looking at the quilting magazines I came home totally inspired! I wanted to make my own tags this year. I am going to buy some plain red wrapping paper and some big wide cream ribbon and attach my newly made tags. I used Papertreys Snowfall stamps which included these gorgeous mittens. I then used the 2009 Holiday Tag Collection and paper pieced the snowflakes on the mitten and used scalloped scissors to scallop the edge! I love buttons, so lots of the papertrey buttons on here!

Supplies:
Ink: Papertrey Pure Poppy
Stamps: Holiday Tag Collection
Snowfall
Ribbon: Papertrey-cream
Martha Stewart-white/red
Punches: Martha Stewarts snowflakes & Leaf
Buttons: Papertrey
It is so nice to get these all done. I now have to finish off quite a few Christmas cards as they have to go over seas the beginning of December! I also have a quilt to finish for someone special this Christmas! Can't mention any names as she checks out this blog!
Have a great day...and thank-you so much for all the wonderful comments each and everyone of you makes on my blog. When I started this blog and saw all the talent out there...I never thought anyone would come and visit mine..so I am so grateful!

  9. Christine I have just discovered I'm not following your blog anymore! I wondered why I wasn't getting your updates and for some reason I'd stopped following at least 4 other gorgeous blogs that I know of. It definately wasn't intentional, your blog gives me so much inspiration and all your creations are beautiful
