Design Team Memeber

Hi everyone! I've got some GREAT news. I am now officially a Design Team Member for

For my first project I used the Christmas Reindeer digistamp and the Candy House digistamp.

Here is what I did:

Candy House:
This is a cute gift bag made out of an envelope!

I colored in the Candy House digistamp house using Copic Markers. I only have the basic 12 color set right now but I really think they are awesome markers.

I added glitter to look like snow on the ground and on the tops of the candy canes. I also used fine glitter on the smoke coming out of the chimney.

I used red and white polka dotted ribbon for the bow on the front and for the handle on the bag. To add the handles I attached grommets to the sides of the bags, threaded the ribbon through and tied a knot on the inside of the bag
I had a cute candy cane button that I used to embellish the bow. I thought I tied in nicely with the candy canes on the stamp!

Christmas Reindeer:
I made a cute gift tag using traditional and non-traditional colors!

I used Copic Markers to also color in the reindeer and fussy cut him out. If you look closely there is glitter on his antlers, chest and blanket. He's edged with ink (as well as the red tag). I attached him with pop-ups to give dimension.

Stitching and stickles glitter glue was added to the green and blue polka dotted paper under the reindeer to give some texture. Edges were inked.
I love flowers and I stacked teal and red together with a pewter brad and added it to the tag with a zots dot.
Finally a grosgrain brown stitched ribbon was added! Fun!

I'll be doing more fun projects in the upcoming months so keep a lookout!

Go check out Jenn Nilsson's Etsy shop Fairy Land Dreams to get some awesome digistamps for yourself!
