Gift Topping Ideas - The Stamp Market

Good morning! 
It's a cheery day in the studio - rainbows of flowers are everywhere and that makes me smile. 
Come Christmas, my momma and I's favorite tradition is to spend at least a few hours crafting.
While the turkey roasts, the cider mulls, and Christmas tunes play in the background, we overtake the dining table with colorful papers, ink and art supplies. 
While cards are usually on the agenda, one of our traditions is to whip up Christmas thank you's and packaging adornments to use year round.  Seeing as I usually prep a few designs in advance to help with some jumping off ideas - I thought it would be fun to share here too!

It's such an easy way to get crafty during the Holidays, or with a loved one, and it's a gift that keeps on giving! Once our craft-a-thon is over, we clear the table for Christmas dinner, and safely stow the goodies into a box, to revisit each time an occasion rolls around. 

This year, my favoritest of the bunch is this gorgeous paper peony. It looks absolutely delightful atop a package! And it it's super easy to pull together with the help of this die. For the blooms I used three shades of cardstock as well as dotted vellum. If you cannot find dotted vellum, this stamp works like a charm! Embossed with gold, silver or white, it makes for the prettiest touch of sparkle.  

To make the tags, I used the Stitched Tag Die, and paired it up with the new Something Extra alphas. 
I also used the fabulous Lots of Thanks set, which is packed with plenty of varying sizes of sentiments,. Perfect for a project like this.
