Coffee Gnomes

Good morning and welcome to my blog!
Today I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog and I have some holiday themed 
caffeinated inspiration to share with you in my ICU!
Today in the "Intensive Coffee Unit" I have a pair of tags with some 
Coffee Drinking Gnomes!

This Simon Says Stamp Gnome Wafer Die is just too cute and I know the second
I put that cute little gnome together he/she needed a coffee cup to go with!
The Karen Burniston Coffee Charms Dies were the perfect size to pair with this
gnome die cut and I distressed them with some Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink.

I started out with some Simon Says Stamp Stitched Dress Up Tags and die cut 
To give these tags a fun background I used the Echo Park Shine on Stars Stencil
and taped it down to the tag with some Therm O Web Purple Tape.

Next I sponged over the stencil with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink on
one tag and Picket Fence Distress Oxide Ink on the other.
While the stencil was still in place over the tags I also layered on some 
Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel to add some holiday sparkle!

For the sentiments on my tags I used stamps and dies from the
I used vellum to stamp on so that the background would show through.
I love how the dies cut out the exact shapes of the sentiments, it such a clean look.

I will be entering my tags in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags put on
by Tracey McNeely each year.
I was inspired by Becca Yahrling's tag this year.
I love how she made a white patterned background on her kraft tag,
so I recreated that look on my tags here today.
Have a look, so cute!

Thanks so much for stopping by today,  if you have any questions
about my tags, feel free to leave a comment below.
Have a great day, I already am!
