My friend Deborah made these Christmas Tags for me as a Thank You. Use these ideas as a starting point to creating some Christmas Tags of your own. She used Stamps and ink, the Oh What Fun stamp set, Punches, Her Big Shot and some Framelits, stickers, silver embossing powder, gold cord, Baker’s Twine, Ribbons, and Rhinestones. So grab some supplies and a Christmas movie and have fun making some Christmas Tags! She used the retired Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Punch.
She used the Oh What Fun stamp set and the retired Snowflake punch.
She used the Bird Builder Punch, the Corner Rounder Punch, and the Merry Everything stamp set.
She used the Oh What Fun stamp set, the retired Labels Framelits, and a circle punch.
If you don’t want to come up with the ideas yourself, just get the Oh What Fun Project Kit and Stamp Set. If you buy them from me I will send you the Tutorial FREE. OR you can buy the Tutorial HERE.

Yes, you can use both Framelits at the same time. Add Dimensionals to the back of the Wreath. 5. Position the Noel and Wreath where you want them on your card front. Attach the Wreath with Dimensionals. Attach the Noel with Tombow Glue. Just use a very thin line of Tombow Glue. 6. Tie a bow with the Glitter Ribbon. Attach it to the Wreath with several Glue Dots. 7. You have now finished another Christmas card! Congratulations!

Merry Christmas! I hope you are enjoying spending time with family and friends to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Here is a card made with My Digital Studio. Below is a tree my grandson and I made together last Sunday. We made the tree base from card stock by tracing around my largest dinner plate and turning it into the cone shape. He chose the Nordic Noel paper because it had tree parts and pine cones on it. He LOVES Pine Cones!

Here is a list of what each Blendabilities and Marker are used for:
~Smokey Slate: Swaddling/blanket around Baby Jesus
~Daffodil Delight: Halos, hair, beard, star. I used the light and medium to blend the halos. Hair is the darkest Blendabilities. Choose which you want for the hair and beard-the darkest was used here. The star is the lightest. Around the star alternates the light and medium. The circle Frame around the star is the lightest.
~Melon Mambo: Mary’s clothes and head covering. The Blending technique was used here.
~Old Olive: Joseph’s clothes and head covering. The Blending technique was also used here.
~Coastal Cabana: Stained Glass background and borders. Background behind Baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph: This is the only part of the Stained Glass where I actually used all 3 Blendabilities in each rectangle. The Frame just around the background is the lighter Blendabilities. The part behind the star alternates the medium and light Blendabilities. The outside frame has the darkest Blendabilities in each corner and the alternates the medium and light in between the corners. 2. Cut your colored image out with scissors. I tried not to leave any white showing this time. Put Dimensionals on the back. 3. Cut your Daffodil Delight card stock at 3″ x 4-3/4″. Center the cut out colored image on top. Add Dimensionals to the back. 4. Cut your Bermuda Bay card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. Add your layered image. You are done!
