Naughty or Nice?

Today is the unveiling of our December gallery at Embellish-It Scrapbooking!! The Design Team has been hard at work preparing our projects for your enjoyment!

This month it is all about Basic Grey Wassail!! I know you have seen this beautiful line of papers, rub-ons, buttons, brads, chipboards - need I go on??! But you have never seen it done like this before!!

Here is one to get you started!!

TAGS!! Every since Christina Fischer created her tag here, I have been luvin' these little pieces of goodness!

They are so easy to throw together! Can you imagine, at your Christmas gathering, the comments these tags will receive??!! I am quite excited about it!

I bought a package of 100 shipping tags from Staples and stamped them with the very naughty owl from Kim Hughes line U R A Hoot. I coloured him with my copics - yes, my hand cramped up - and paper pieced the hat!

I added a bit of white liquid applique for the ball and the brim on the hat.

Then, using sentiments from Christmas Cheer - "naughty or nice", U R A Hoot - "howly jowly Christmas", and Pet-Tootie sentiments - "something tweet for you", I stamped them along the bottom of the tag.

Using my ziggy pen, I drew a line so that it looks like he is sitting on his perch, looking so much like he is not excited for Christmas at all!! But you know he is.........

I decorated with Basic Grey Wassail, using the rub-ons, paper and glazed brads. Now, I just realized that --ackkkkkkkk!!! I got so excited to take the picture, I snapped and posted it before I added the gold ribbon!

Now, because of all the colouring, the back of the tag was a mess! so I added more Basic Grey Wassail on the reverse!

Take a jaunt over to the Design Team gallery and check out the awesome creations today, and then march right into the store Check out the Special Offers page - there are always tons of things on sale - this week it is Just-Rite stamper, Basic Grey papers- 12 x 12 and 6 x 6 paper packs!!, some May Arts ribbon!
