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.
