Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop - Holiday Happenings

| on

I can't believe it's the first Sunday in the month of December, 2022!
But it really is!
The Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop is here, and our theme this month is 'Holiday Happenings'.
You may be visiting me from my beautiful friend Sara Levin in the US, or you are starting with me? Enjoy and be inspired by our Blog Hop.

To be honest, I cannot wait to start our Summer Holidays in Australia. 
We are on the countdown to Christmas, and my creations are for an Aussie Christmas complete with Koalas and Eucalyptus Leaves.

Gift Tags!
My favourite little things to make.

This little tag started with the stamped Koalas from the 'Count on Me' stamp set.
I coloured the Koalas using 'Smoky Slate' & 'Crumb Cake' Stampin' Blends Markers. Adding a touch of 'Color Lifter' for some little highlights.
Those teeny red sequins are small silver sequins coloured with 'Dark Real Red' Stampin' Blends Marker. Adhered with a little dab of 'Multipurpose Liquid Glue'.

'Merry Christmas' sentiment is from the 'Kindest Gnomes' stamp set.
The leaves have been stamped with 'Old Olive' ink, and some 'Garden Green' ink lightly daubed around the edges of the leaves with a 'Sponge Dauber'.
Sorry, but I did fussy cut the leaves. I originally die cut the stamped image, but there was way too much white surrounding the image. 
Bring out the 'Paper Snips' people.

I had an idea to use the 'Elegant Eucalyptus 3D Embossing Folder' with 'Old Olive' cardstock.
And, another idea to use the 'Tailor Made Tags Dies' - to make another tag!
And, I just love this embossed tag.

Adding another sweet little Koala image, and fussy cut leaves with a 'Merry Christmas' sentiment.
Also, the 'Real Red' reinforcement and 'Linen Thread' are a perfect finish for my Australiana Christmas Gift Tag.

See that lovely 'Lindt Koala'? 
That was my inspiration for my Christmas Gift Tags.
I have only seen a 'Lindt Bunny' at Easter, but this little guy is my new favourite for Christmas gifting.
Perfect inspo for an 'Aussie Summer Christmas Holiday Happenings' creation or two don't you think?

I hope you have have been inspired by the Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop?
