Time To Wrap The Presents!

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another installment of Purple Passion over at MFP Speedy TV!

Oh my gosh...only one week left til Christmas!  I can't believe it's come up so fast.  I realize it's because Thanksgiving was a week later than usual, so there wasn't as much time in between the two holidays to get ready, but honestly, I feel like I'm still recuperating from LAST Christmas.  Anyway, here we go again!

As I was wrapping presents the other night, I realized I hadn't made any tags this year.  I had some store bought ones left over from years past, but I made my own tags last year and I really loved the way they came out.  I started working on some new ones with my Silhouette Cameo earlier today, but for some reason, the patterns I was trying to use just weren't cutting right.  I got the tag shape but not all the other intricate cuts that were supposed to be on there.  That's okay...Mark's Finest Papers stamps to the rescue!!

I started with my favorite color cardstock...purple of course!  Using a basic tag shape and some of my favorite MFP Christmas stamps, I stamped onto the paper with VersaMark ink and then embossed in silver and gold powders.  The stamp sets I used were Holly Jolly Greetings,  Holiday Tag,  and Calendar.    I finished each tag off with some cute sparkley ribbon!

So...Are you ready for Christmas yet???

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
