Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
This week we are playing with the Cardinals Clear Stamp set by Prickley Pear.
Sharon tells me that they made dies to match, but I fussy cut them out because I didn't
know about the dies, next visit!
I made Christmas gift tags with three of the four cardinal images included in the package.  There was also a sentiment and a music stamp with pine cones and fir tree branches.
Tag #1

Word die - Dee's Distinctively (IME-087)
White sparkly glitter

Two small jingle bells

I glued another tag on the back of each one and stamped the
words "TO" and "FROM" .
Wouldn't these be so pretty on a beautiful gift bag or wrapped box?
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great Monday. Until later.............
