Merry Christmas (plus a bunch of Christmas cards and tags)

Merry Christmas!  I hope as you celebrate the birth of the Savior today that you find much happiness and peace.  I love that Christmas is on Sunday and that we will get to go to church on this special day.    I realized that I never shared a few Christmas projects I made, so I figured I better do it before it is too late. 
My first card uses some Papertrey stamps.  If you look closely, you can see that there are little angels stamped lightly in the background, which I thought was quite perfect paired with this scripture.
Last week I noticed I needed a few more tags, so I pulled out some of old and new Winnie & Walter goodies to quickly whip up a few more tags.  I sure love these new stamps and dies.  I was inspired by several cards in Winnie & Walter's Rerun No. 17 Challenge.  My first tag was inspired by Gayatri (ombre blending on word cutaway) and Shay (loved the mint!).  I stamped the pine bough from Winter Woodland in the background and then blended ink onto the new In a Word: Noel Cutaway. The little tag hole was cut using a teeny die in the Essentials: Noelle Cutaways.
I loved how the tag turned out, so I decided to make a set of them. :) 
My next two tags were inspired by Lydia's card.  I used In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals and a sentiment from Sentimental: Winter. 
And here is the second one all tied up and ready to go.
My last tag was inspired by Heather Hoffman's card.  The tags base is from Winnie & Walter's Essentials: Noelle Cutaways, a set of dies I have wanted for quite some time now.  I used just one little leaf in Winnie & Walter's In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals and first stamped it in white to form a wreath.  Then I stamped it again in green and purposely stamped offset from the white, so the wreath would look more full.  Then I went back over a few of the leaves with the leaf vein stamp.  I added a little bling and finished it off with a sentiment from Sentimental: Winter.  I LOVE the font in this set! 

And I'm also entering this one into the Simon Says: Make it Sparkle challenge because I just the subtle sparkle in the gold twine and sequins. 
My final card is a super simple one using some of my favorite Concord & 9th stamps.  If you haven't already noticed, I'm on an ink blending kick lately.  After I blended the ink I stamped a sentiment from O Christmas Tree and heat embossed some clear snowflakes from Concord & 9th's Joy stamp set that are trickling down the card.

If you look really close you can see the glossy snowflakes. 
Thank you for spending a bit of time here today.  I hope that you have a blessed Christmas!
