Have you tried Washi Tape yet? I used the All Is Calm Washi for the accents on this Bright & Beautiful Star card.

Christmas Card Bright & Beautiful

Having products that coordinate like the All Is Calm products takes a lot of the guess work out of card making. The colors in the Washi Tape are perfect for the paper so when you have both it is easy to accessorize.

Can you see wrapping your gifts with these watercolor Christmas tags made with the Festival of Trees stamp set? It takes a short time to dry, but once they do you have a great background.

Watercolor Christmas Tags

Tip for creating these tags: Watercolor Wash a larger piece of watercolor paper so you can cut it down when you want to make tags. I painted a piece of 9″ X 4 1/2″ watercolor paper with Pear Pizzazz & Lost Lagoon ink refills. I started with one side, painted Pear Pizzazz to the center, turned the paper, and painted from the other side with Lost Lagoon ink to the center until the colors overlap.

Festival of Trees Christmas Tag
After the watercolor has dried, white emboss (or whatever color you want) the images over the the paper. Add any embellishments, like the “Merry Christmas” banner to you tag.

I posted a picture of a fall/Thanksgiving wreath I had done last year on Facebook and I then I wanted to make another one. I used the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper and the Autumn Accents die to make the leaves for this wreath.

Color Me Autumn Fall thanksgiving Wreath
When you cut the leaves with the Autumn Accents die, make sure you have one sheet of the paper right side down and one piece right side up when you run it through the Big Shot. Place one piece of the leaf face down, place glue on the leaf, place a length of florist wire over the glue, and the place down the other piece of the leaf.

Leaf pin Wreath
Gather the leaves into bundles of 3. Wrap florist tape around the wire to make bunches.

Color me Autumn Wreath

Color Me Autumn Wreath

Push the bundle of leaves into the Extruded Foam Wreath Form. Continue until you have gone around the entire form.

Color Me Autumn Thanks giving Wreath
I did use a few single leaves to fill in any areas that may have needed a bit more fullness. Tie a length of burlap ribbon into a bow. Place a length of florist wire through the back side and press into the wreath. I place a single leaf and an acorn cut from the Gold Glimmer paper in just above the bow.

You could also use this to wrap around a candle for the center of your Thanksgiving table.

See the Stampin’ Up! supplies I used down below. I also used a 10″ extruded foam wreath form, florest wire, and florist tape.
