Christmas all Wrapped up!

*This post is part of the October promotion fortnight. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in

Good Morning Crafty Friends,
My Thursday post show some ideas for Christmas wrapping using 
I used the Aqua and Pink Flakes papers with a band of the co-ordinating Stripe paper to decorate plain gift bags.

The tags were stamped using  Distress Ink Pads
in Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry to co-ordinate with the papers.
The moon was created using a mask cut from a circle punch using a post it note.
I blended the ink coloured backgrounds with cut n dry foam.
The landscape hills are a stamp from the same set which is just fab!
Some of the trees are faded using second generation ink stamping and one is two-tone which uses both ink colours on one stamp.
I really like the sentiment stamp from this set too, it stamps so well.
Finally a few gems and some sparkly threads to finish the tags to add to the gift bags.
Hope this inspires you to create some Christmas gift wrapping ideas.
Thanks so much for looking today, have a great day.
Hugs xXx
