Visions of Sugarplums 2017 Day Two

Welcome back!  Wasn't it fun yesterday hopping around to see all the Christmas goodies?

It's Day Two of Visions of Sugarplums.  We've got lots of projects for you to see today.  Don't forget that the more hopping and commenting you do, the better the chance of winning one of our prizes.

Seriously adorable!  Love the cuteness of this little car.  It's a cut file from The Cutting Cafe
(Thank you, Regina, for being one of our sponsors).

Here's how I put it together:

I used circle dies to cut the tires.   The silver glitter piece is 3/8" and then cut to fit the length of the car.

How about another cute little car and tree? And I have to say I love that cool doodle frame, too.  (These stamps and dies come from Lawn Fawn - a sponsor of VOSP.)  The pretty blue paper comes from another sponsor, AmyJDelightful.

I found it easier to just cut out the middle and ink it up rather than trying to mask off the rest of the frame.

After putting all the tag pieces together.  I used Copic Opaque White to create some snow.  Just dotted it on with small paintbrush.

On this closeup,you can see the snowflakes made with Copic Opaque White. 

Mistletoe 50 cents and Kisses For Free!  Do you see my smile?  I think that sentiment is so cute.  The stamps and dies are all from Paper Sweeties (Thank you, Debbie for sponsoring VOSP).  Such a sweet kitty and tiny bird.  The paper is from Amy again. 

I inked up a circle and layered it on top of the scallop tag.  I didn't cut the middle out of this one.  Just die cut a circle and layered it on top.  

The kitty has been cut off to fit the curve of the circle.

Here is a great idea for easy packaging.  Envelope bags!  I think they're a great idea and I use them a lot.

Seriously that's it!  Seal the envelope and cut off one end.  Instant gift bag!

Of course, the mice tags are a little more involved.  You can see the base of the tags were made the same as the one above.  

Tip:  The mice have a very nice texture.  I sponged the ink onto the stamp, instead of putting the ink pad direct to the stamp.
