Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge - Summer Christmas Tags

The challenge this month is to create a set of five Christmas gift tags. Since it's Summer during Christmas in Australia, I decided to use images related to Summer, in summery colours.  Here is a group shot of the tags:

The tags were cut using the Tag Sale #3 die, and I discovered that the "Merry Christmas" stamp from the Snowflake Flurries set fit in the space at the bottom.

Here are the tags laid out:

I used Diamond Stickles on the mistletoe.

Stamps:  Bitty Background Blocks, Holly Jolly, Masculine Motifs, Pedal Pushers, Snowflake Flurries, Sweet as Can Be, Up, Up and Away- Papertrey Ink 
Ink:  Turquoise - VersaColor, Rocket Red - Tsukineko
Dies: Holly Jolly, Flipping Out - Papertrey Ink
Others: Diamond Stickles

Silhouette Portrait - birthday card

This is the first card I completely designed using the Silhouette Portrait. 
Details: Font Aharoni 700pt for the number, 60pt for the name. The offset for the green number is 2mm.
The black background is embossed using Spellbinders bricks.
Since I had left-over pieces, I made a co-ordinating tag.

Inspired by stationery

I was inspired by this picture on the Rifle Paper Co. blog:

The pink flowers are Beautiful Blooms from PTI, which I then cut with a circle punch.  I hand painted on the leaves with acrylic paint.
