Inspired Stamps Puzzle

 Here is a puzzle that I made using Ruth from Inspired Stamps. I made a label puzzle (like the top of a puzzle box) and colored her with Copics after I had cut the puzzle pieces, would not do it that way again.
 This was my first try and I did have some things I needed to change but in the end it worked. I used an old Pepsi box. I learned that you should Mod Podge the side with the print, which I did not on the initial one which became the label. 
 After it dried completely I cut the excess off and put it in the puzzle die cut (below) which I got on ebay for $5. I left the puzzle uncolored so the child I give it to can put it together and color it themselves.

I will be making many more puzzles to come. Check out Inspired Stamps if you have not already and they are having a DT call! It is a great team to be on. I highly encourage you to try out even if you do not own any of the stamps. I had never before I joined the team and LOVE them.

Tags, Tags, and Bags

I made about 30 of these gift tags for my students and co workers. I used two different Bugaboo tag digi stamps for one side of the tag.

On the other side I made many different cut outs from Christmas Cheer and Doodlecharms. I added many different Peachy Keen Stamps for the faces. I added twine for to hang them with.

I love these trees with the metal accents attached with my Irock.

The first tag of the above three I cut out a snowman from a old Christmas card. The santa is part of a piece of designer paper. The bags below I kept very simple because they were for my 25 third grade students. I just cut pretty paper and added to the front of the bags. The kids loved them.

Here is a bag I made with a Meljen's Image. I love this image.
 I colored this cute image with Copics and added stickles to the cheeks.
The bag above is a Pattie's Creations image. My cousin laughed when I handed her this bag and told me she was just telling her husband how much she liked it.

Christmas Wrap Up!!

 The top two have Bugaboo images. The third one if  a Sew Many Cards image. All colored with Copics and Stickles added.
 The below mouse is from The Greeting Farms and the cute girl is a clear stamp set from Some Odd Girl.
Here are all five larger cans. I added rosettes to the tops with bottle caps. Three of them have the 1 inch snowmen from Inspired Stamps. The other two have a be jolly stamp.
I made three more of these in a smaller size, I forgot to take a picture of one :( It was fun watching the boys try to open these.
 I made several glass jars with chex mix that I made. I love how these came out.
 I used Inspired Stamps on these two, the tops and the tree above.
 I love the rosette on this one with the circle stamp.
 I made heart candy cane chocolate bark. Just put the two candy canes together and pipe in melted chocolate.
 I used a Bugaboo stamp for the above image. I cut a tree from Christmas Cheer and used Peachy Keen faces for the jar below.
The snowman was cut from Doodlecharms and I used a Peachy Keen face on it. I used the perfect pearls for the dots on both.
I made these three pop top cans for gifts. I put gift cards and candy inside. These were a hit.
 The first image is from The Greeting Farms and the next two are from Bugaboo.
I made a ton of gifts and since Xmas is over sadly now over so I put many of them in one post. Hopefully this will give you some ideas for next year ans you have an excellent memory :) Merry Christmas everyone!!
