CHRISTMAS in JULY - Gift Tags and Gift Wrap!

Howzit Everyone!
We're busy celebrating CHRISTMAS in JULY over at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity
 Today is Day 5 and it's my turn to share some Christmas inspiration featuring stamps by Lost Coast Designs!

I love upcycling and these tags started out as clothing tags off some of my hubby's shirts and they came with the red cord...perfect!  The tags are made of nice thick cardstock and I just started out by covering the brand logo etc with white gesso and adhered white cardstock to both sides with a glue stick.  Then the Christmas magic began and I randomly stamped various snowflakes in different designs and size, Large Snowflake set and Small Snowflake set, in Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  On the bottom left one I decided to combine Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink together for a fun variegated look.  I inked up the edges with Peacock Feathers DI to both frame and give the tags a distressed look.  I then decorated them with the To and From and the presents from the Christmas Tag set in VersaMagic Red Magic ink and also used the flourishy parts of the presents to embellish the tag corners too.  

Of course I wasn't going to stop there and also stamped up my own matching gift wrap ;0)  
So much fun!

Thanks for stopping by to see my project and I hope you will join us over at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity and Stay to Play!
 Happy Stamping!
