Today, Team Sunset is sharing its GRATITUDE with you in our creations over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges. We are incredibly GRATEFUL to you for always tuning in to see what challenge we might have up out sleeve. I am extremely GRATEFUL to be serving on the Heart 2 Heart Design Team too! It really struck me though that I am always striving for the NEXT thing, the NEXT big project, the NEXT big gig...when the ones right here in the now are important too!
So, instead of stressing, I am focusing on the GRATITUDE I have for the NOW. Right now I have two craft shows lined up, and I am so excited to participate in them for the first time ever! I am extremely lucky to even have a spot at ONE, so my thankfulness is overflowing. I designed an adorable set of Santa Tags to take along to sell that I would love to show you!
The base for all these tags is Kraft paper. I really wanted the White Daisy CS of Santa's mustache to POP! The Sparkle and Shine Washi 3-pack is fantastic for tags! So quick and easy! I suppose the exact same thing can be said for the shimmer trim in all colors! (These would be the EASY things to be grateful for each day, lol.) I love the Perfect Fit Holidays My Acrylix stamp set that includes this darling Ho, ho, ho sentiment...
These tags and mustaches are cut on my Cricut with the Close to My Heart exclusive Cricut Artiste Cartridge.
Embossing folders are GREAT for tags. This one is a woodgrain from Tim Holtz.
Sticking the red shimmer trim to CS and trimming it out really makes it stand out...
This final tag is my favorite! Two little Licorice Opaques are the beady little eyes, and I colored the large Opaque Pearl for Santa's nose with my Alcohol Ink Marker in Cranberry and let it dry (this takes TIME!) Sharpies work as well...
The sentiment is from the December 25th My Acrylix available on my website that I used Cranberry Pigment Ink to stamp. I love this face!
Alright, I shared mine, now it is your turn! Show us your GRATITUDE! What are YOU thankful for? Will you make a thank you card or gift? Something else? Link up with us over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges by the end of November for your chance to become top chic!!! That would be some awesomely easy gratitude, eh? ;)
I am gratefully linking up with Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes Challenge in hopes of being even more grateful! ;)
