Darnell, we tried out Die Cutting with Napkins at our Indiana retreat. We used Poppystamps Majestic Maple die & I colored with my Prima Confections watercolors. When I got home I brushed on a bit of gold paint. We all found that the napkin did not adhere to the cardstock, so we just used liquid glue after it dried. I used the same watercolors to make a plaid square & used a gold cardstock scrap behind my leaf. The sentiment from Poppystamps Hope & Thanks was stamped in Versafine Claire Acorn on a vanilla card. It just looked too stark to me, so I did a gold watercolor wash with a flat brush to give the idea of wood planks. Now I'm happy with the look. I had left the sentiment stamps in my positioner, thankfully, since I needed to restamp them. Finished off with gold sequins. I'm also entering DRU, SSS Monday, SSS WIW & The 30 Day Coloring Challenge.

I don't make a lot of tags, but can't resist playing along in Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags. I'll probably add them to cards or make them into tag cards eventually. My first tag was inspired by Tracey's tag on Day 1. I don't have a big bow stamp, so instead I used an old Lil' Inker die with 2 different pink felts--so much fun!

I also HAD to make a tag inspired by Jennifer's Deer Tags on Day 3 for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags. That's because I borrowed Brenda's die (not sure of the brand) at the Indiana retreat & brought home several white cardstock cuts. Not only that, I have the Altenew Cozy Flannel Cover die to use for the buffalo plaid.
