Gift Giving

It is the gift giving season & to celebrate that we are wrapping! I made this wrap out of plain packing paper and color sprays, with touches of gold acrylic paint. Such a great way to make your own wrapping paper-and recycle too! 

A fun contrast is adding Daniel Torrente's Christmas Ornaments with white embossing. Just be sure your paper is very dry before you emboss. You could also re-recycle this paper after the gift is opened by using it as an art journal background paper or die cut shapes out of it and use it for embellishments.

For the tag I embossed in gold and colored Mr. Tangled Enthusiasm with pens. After inking the tag with distress inks I used Stickles for the lights to add some bling. The Christmas saying is a wonderful stamp by Maryse Carrier. Coloring it in a contrasting color helps it pop. 

A big thanks to Stampotique for letting me design for them this month! Have a happy holidays!  (Karen:  Stampotique thanks you for being a part of our team this month and showing off your gorgeous creations!)

Love the non-traditional colors. I would definitely re-cycle that custom paper for something! Just beautiful!
