Sweet Dixie Border and Tag Stamps by Sue Dix

Today I bring to you a selection of projects created using Sue Dix Sweet Dixie Floral Christmas Border and Tag Stamps (SDCSA6076)  from Personal Impressions.

The stamp set consists of one Border stamp, one tag stamp, two sentiments *Christmas Wishes and With Love* and also included are word stamps saying to and from, all you will need to create your own Christmas Tags.

The Tag stamp was used to create a 4.5"x 3" mini card, perfect size to use as a Florist card. The image was stamped on to Kraft Card and coloured with Promarkers. The centre of the tag stamp is blank so you could personalise this with your own sentiment or even a name, I chose to use the Christmas Wishes Stamp included in the set,

The image stamps crisp and clear and looks just as good uncoloured. With this tag I have used the *With Love* sentiment included in the set, perfect to use as a gift tag or an embellishment for a card.

Finally I have used the border stamp to create a bookmark and as you can see it is a considerable size. Stamped onto Kraft Card and coloured with Wink of Stella brush pens these give a beautiful sparkle. The bookmark has been cut to size and pierced around the edge for decoration.
I covered the bookmark with versamark clear embossing ink and embossed using Sweet Dixie High Gloss embossing powder this not only intensifies the colour and sparkle of the colouring  but also makes the bookmark much more durable. A hole was punched into the bookmark and ribbon added to finish.

A handy Christmas set i'm sure any stamper would welcome in their collection.
Thank you for sharing your time.. Creative Hugs from Tracey xxx
