Hi everyone, I am Pearl Liu from sunny Singapore!

For my first card – Joyeux Noel – I wanted to capture the joyful expression of Merry Mr Snowman – and even make it seem like he’s wheeee-ing down a snowy hillside . Hence the snowglobe-like background that I mounted him on. I tried out a little paper piecing and gave our Merry Snowman a dotty scarf chosen from a coordinating piece of pattern paper by WRMK .  I went to town with Stickles on the snowy hill and the top hat for Mr Snowman. For a finishing touch, I used Glossy Accents on the top hat, nose and buttons on Mr Snowman.

Here’s a simple set of quick tags to make – to give away or  to attach to your presents  at Christmas.

Using a medium sized shipping tag size, I used the same simple design using coordinating papers from a single line for all 3 tags. I used SEI’s Kris Kringle Jolly Holidays and assembled the papers unto the tag. Using the present and candy cane stamps I made some fun, customized embellishments.

For the first tag , I glued on microbeads using glossy accents on the bows of the present for a fun texture. After drying , I gave the microbeads another coat of glossy accents to ensure that they stay on.

For the second tag, I gave the bow an entirely different treatment, using green Stickles to color the bow of the present and when dry, I added some paper curls for a fun, dimensional effect to the foam mounted present on the tag.

For the final tag , I stamped 2 candy cane images on white cardstock with red ink  and after cutting them out , I applied red Stickles  on the red bands of the canes. When dry, I applied Glossy Accents all over one candy cane , and on the other , only on the red distress  stickled parts. Really love the dimension and shine from using the Glossy Accent here.

I added the Joyeux Noel sentiment, gingham ribbon & twine to finish the tags off and presto, done!

I hope you liked my projects for today, there will be more from me later this week :)
