Here’s how I was inspired:
Let’s start with my tag:
My overall color palette is:
Cranberry – Concord & 9th
Chocolate Malt – Bazzill
The tag is Essentials by Ellen Tag Trio by Christine Herrin. The sentiment is from Tag It – Christmas on one of the Farmhouse Tags.
The gingerbread house is from the House Box, the stamped details along with the Gingerbread girl + boy is from the Ginger house set.
I love tone-on-tone stamping. Do you see the Swirl Background? I stamped it in Cranberry ink to coordinate the tag.
So, I actually started off with the House Box and was going to use it as my ‘tag’ but then thought it’s really a box, not a tag. I decided to go ahead and finish it off because it’s so cute.
I’ve had this die set for awhile and honestly, it’s the first time I put it together so I’m so glad that I decided to use it. All the white detailing is from the Ginger House stamp set, heat embossed in white. The tag is from the Farmhouse Tag set with a sentiment from the Tag It Christmas set.
There are two identical sides that look like this:
I ADORE those scallops, so sweet!
I can’t wait to see how you’re inspired!
