CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Christmas in July Release Party Day 2

Happy Monday everyone!!! Are you ready for a little sparkle and shine?

Today I am showing you some tags I created using CAS-ual Fridays Stamps new "Christmas Sparkle" stamps and "Tag Ornament Fri-Dies."

Isn't this stamp set so fun? I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I saw it!!

At Christmas, I wrap each person's presents in a specific wrapping paper and then add home made tags. So, for example, all Charlotte's gifts are wrapped with the same wrapping paper and then each gets matching bows and tags made especially to go with the particular paper. I knew that I wanted to use this set to start making some of my tags for this Christmas.

I started off by stamping the large circle from "Christmas Sparkle" in Delicata "Silver" pigment ink and heat embossing using WOW silver embossing powder.

I then stamped the sentiments using the same technique. However, for my first tag, I stamped the sentiment right on the tag. I thought it looked boring so for the other two tags, I stamped the sentiment on a separate, die cut circle and adhered them to the tags using foam adhesive.

After all the embossing was done, I then added Stickles in different colors in the middle of the circles that were not fully embossed. I die cut the circles using the matching "Tag Ornament" Fri-dies.

Next I die cut the ornament tops out of silver glitter paper. I die cut two for each tag, with the total of six. I adhered the top on both the front and the back of the tag.

I then adhered the "to/from" onto the back of each tag. I LOVE how they came out!! I will be making more of these as the month goes on in different colors to match the different papers I have.

This stamp set and ornament dies will be available at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Store starting on Saturday. Be sure to use the code nora2016 to get 15% off your total order!!
