I am so happy to joining in a fabulous event today. Tracey McNeely has begun her 7th annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags and today Newton’s Nook Designs is the featured sponsor. I have already gotten a sneak peek and you are going to have fun hopping through all the fabulous projects today (and for all 25 days!).
I thought it would be fun to create tags featuring the Snowfall Stencil and the words from the Snow Globe Shaker Dies. The dies make for quick work when you are making multiple tags. I simply used the dies on Red Glimmer Paper (Stampin’ Up). All the shine and no extra work! Perfect for the holidays. I used Embossing Paste with the stencils and just created an assembly line on them (make sure you wash off the embossing paste as soon as you can). I attached the words to some vellum and then glued the vellum pieces to the tags using Ranger Multi Medium Matte Glue. I colored a few rhinestones with a Copic marker and added those for more bling. Finally, I used the Mini Tinsel Trim (it comes in red and silver) to top off the tags. If you love sparkle for you holiday packaging, these are the tags for you!
Make sure you stop over at Tracey’s blog to see all the Newton’s Nook Designs tags and check HERE to see how you can win prizes from NND and the other generous sponsors. Thanks so much for stopping in. Hope you have a great day!

Welcome to the Summer Fun Collaboration Blog hop with Newton’s Nook Designs and Studio Katia! Both teams are celebrating the start of summer with fun and colorful cards using stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs and dies and embellishments from Studio Katia. There’s prizes too! Both companies have a prize to give away too so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!My first thought when I saw the summer theme was a birthday card. Maybe because it is because my oldest son is a “beginning of summer” baby, haha! But something about these bright happy sequins from Studio Katia and this adorable tag die screamed birthday to me. After consulting with my youngest son (this card was from him for his brother), we chose the Newton Loves Cake stamp to color for the card. I love this little Newton and I colored his cupcake with Copics to match the sequins. Adorable!! This tag die makes creating a shaker super easy too.With the black card stock, it was hard to see the tag details in my full picture so I wanted to show you a closeup too. I created my own mix of sequins with the Sunny Side Up, Enchanted Sea and Lipstick Red Sequins. I have to admit that Newton looks pretty proud of his giant cupcake, don’t you think?! Again, little brother thought the striped paper behind the tag made the card look like a “boy card” so I trusted his judgement. I tied on some red ribbon and black baker’s twine to finish the tag. The verdict??? As soon as the birthday boy picked up the envelope, he knew it was a shaker card. And apparently even 14 year old boys who are very, very cool cannot resist shaking a shaker card! *smile* Now you need to get on with the hop but first…
We are giving away TWO prizes – one prize pack from Studio Katia and one $25 store credit from Newton’s Nook Designs!
