Tickled Pink Stamps DT - Sentiments preview

Gosh, it is a week for previews on my blog!! I have a Tickled Pink Stamps preview to share with you this afternoon. Kellie is releasing a gorgeous Christmas sentiment set and a die that matches the fancy shape in the sentiment set! I have used two of the sentiments on my gift tag.
I'm really pleased how this turned out. I started with a blank piece of card and of course printed Luca onto it but then around the edge I have embossed and stamped a scrummy Stempelglede stamp from the vintage Christmas collection and then inked around it - love how it looks and will definitely be doing that again!
Here's a close up of Luca - wouldn't you just like to give him a kiss under the mistletoe LOL!?!? I've also stamped a Tim Holtz ticket stamp next to Luca. I've used bundled sage distress ink for all the green stamping and inking.
The gorgeous flourish was cut with a sizzix holly and mistletoe swirl die and I added some large half pearls to represent the mistletoe berries. The "under the Mistletoe" is one of the sentiments from the kit and the gorgeous frame around it is also from the kit. (I've cut around the frame myself by the way, this is not the die as I didn't have it at the time of making this tag) - the die matches the frame much better than my cutting so ignore that bit LOL!

On the back of the tag I've used another sentiment from the kit - to and from - very handy for a Christmas tag! I've given the back of the tag the same treatment with the holly stamp and swirl and I also added a scrap of mistletoe paper by Magnolia to finish the look!

Here's a close up of the stamping and embossing with the vintage holly set from Stempelglede too.

Again, I'm afraid it's a hand cut job around the frame, not the matching die cut!!

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! Pop over to the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to see the rest of the gorgeous creations made with the sentiment set! x
