Christmas Gift Tags by Kerrie Gurney



Hi everyone Kerrie here it is my turn on the Couture Creations Blog
and for my post I have created quick and simple Christmas Gift Tags
Hopefully you have all finished your Christmas shopping and are now up to wrapping all your gifts.

My theme for Christmas this year is White and Gold and I like to have all my gifts wrapped to match my theme and so I must have matching gift tags

With foil board and glitter being so on trend I have used both along with some of my favourite Couture Creations Embossing Folders and and of course a holly die

For all my tags I cut strips of white cardstock to 3cm x 15cm and folded them in half to create the base of the tags

For the first two designs I used the Mini Poinsettia Embossing Folder

Emboss white cardstock and gold foil board

cut corners off to create basic tag shape

run a strip of 12mm double sided tape across tag remove backing paper 

sprinkle on fine gold glitter and tap off excess 

using 2 way glue pen add accents to poinsettia flower centers with fine glitter

On second tag design add embossed gold foil board to bottom of the tag and using 10mm Corner Punch round all 4 corners

with 2 Way Glue Pen run a strip across top of embossed foil and sprinkle with fine glitter

for 3rd and 4th tags emboss white cardstock strips using Candy Stripe Embossing Folder

cut a piece of foil board big enough to cover just the small holly leaves on Holly Branch Flourish die

Use 10mm Corner Punch to 2 corners only, adhere holly leaves to tag using 2 Way Glue Pen

For tag 4 adhere 6mm and 3mm double sided tape to embossed pattern, peel off backing paper

 add fine glitter, tap off excess and your are done

Super Quick and Easy  and Inexpensive Christmas Gift Tags

 Happy Creating
Merry Christmas to you all

Vintage Rose Garden Layered Cards by Jo Piccirilli


Hi crafters!  It's Jo here with a few cards that I made using the gorgeous Vintage Rose Garden papers and also some of the new release dies.
I have had a few people ask about all the layering of my papers for my cards and layout so I have a  picture tutorial for you to show you how I go about it.
Here are the pieces I used for one of my cards.
Its then just a case of laying one over the top of the other

Now you just need to add a few embellishments and your done!

Here is a close of up of the other ones.

Thanks for popping by.  Hope I have inspired you all in some small way.

Until next time

Christmas Mini Canvas By Sue Smyth


For the past few years I have made a mini canvas that
sits on a little wooden easel, at Christmas. These look fabulous as a decoration 
at Christmas and are small enough to fit anywhere. 
You can also give it as a gorgeous gift and personalize 
it to suit the recipient.

To start I have  used a 5 x 5 inch canvas, if you cannot find one
simply cut down a board canvas or make your own from
chipboard, as it is covered with paper towel for texture it does
not matter what it started out like.

Adhere paper towel and paint with gesso, then spray with
coloured inks. I have added a little extra gesso around the edges
when the inks are dry for a snowy look.

Add some snow texture paste or puffy style paint to the bottom 
for a snowy field and allow to dry.
Then spray with adhesive and sprinkle with large white 
glitter for sparkle.
Add extra sparkle by smearing over Crystalina Glitzin' Glamour.

Die cut small trees in green cardstock and flick over white paint for snow.
Die cut large tree in white and green, take the white outline shape and 
insert over the green inner, smear with dimensional magic 
and white glitter (this helps keep the two shapes adhered together)

Create a little scene with trees, snowflakes and a snow man,
 use 3 D foam tape to attach trees.
Add Imaginarium Designs chipboard corners and more gesso for snow.

Then create a scroll from white cardstock and stamp or 
write a Christmas greeting along it.

Top Tip
To create a scroll cut white cardstock to 1 cm, trim to fit the canvas.
Add a little double sided tape to each end, peel off backing.
Use a bamboo skewer to wind ends around, hold the wound bit and pull the 
skewer out carefully but firmly.
This looks best when you are a little rustic with the winding.
Ink and distress edges as desired.

I have added details in the background with a white gel or paint pen.
And a little blue metallic paint to the edges.

Add 2mm Gemstones over the trees for more glitter and bling.

Happy Crafting all and 
Merry Christmas
