Angel Blog Hop

Hi eveyone! Welcome to our Angel Blog Hop - this time we had to produce and show off Holiday cards/tags that are done in 10 minutes or less. Here are my two cards.

Blue cardstock was used as the base of this card, with a white panel that was embossed using the swiss dot cuttlebug embossing folder. I used my deckled nestabilities to cut out the main panel and a layer of blue. The tag is also cut out using my nesties.

The stamps are rugged shadows (retired), ornamental snowflakes, and the sentiment is also a retired LE (Holiday) stamp. I stamped them all in Palette starry night ink. The shadows were stamped off once, by the way.

I used a stardust gel pen to outline the snowflake to give it some glitter and bling. The silver ribbon on the tag goes really well with this and adds a bit more bling! I did sponge around the tag with the same ink, as well.

This last one is super simple and quick, and subtle!

I used a dark blue cardstock base and a white layer that is stamped directly on and that's it, no additional layers. I reversed masked a labels 4 from my nesties collection and sponged on some Memento ink in summer sky. The sentiment is from the Simple Joys set and stamped in black. Again, Ornamental Snowflakes were used to stamp images on either side of the sentiment and highlighted with the stardust pen. I decided to use the Bind It All corner rounder on the corners of the white layer. Overall, this one is clean, simple and fast!

Here is a list of Angels participating in this blog hop! Please visit each and everyone because I'm sure that you'll get some great ideas for some quick cards and tags to use this Holiday season!
