Paper Funday with Alex Syberia

Hello friends and welcome to July 2022 challenge at The Paper Funday Challenges. I went with a Christmas theme and made 2 ornaments and a tag.
One of our sponsors this month was Alex Syberia Designs. Her designs are just beautiful and I choose the Christmas Bouquet Digital Stamp. It is just such a lovely image and appealing layout. All 3 projects today were downloaded in Word, resized and then printed with my Brother Laser Printer onto Ranger Ink Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper. It's a nice white, sturdy paper and watercolors beautifully.
All images were watercolored with Daniel Smith's 238 Dot Set of watercolors. I love these cards! I color at work on my lunch hour and they travel nice and flat and I have tons of choices. I discovered some new favorites that I plan to eventually buy the tube itself.
I found a small grapevine wreath in my stash and I thought this image would layered beautifully on the back for an ornament. The digital watercolored image was die cut with a large circle die and once again with another piece of gold card stock. The gold was layered in the back, facing forward. This was for sturdiness and to fill in the blank areas, for this grapevine wreath is not a perfect circle. I added a little red bow that I created with an old bow die cut I had in my stash with hot glue.

For this ornament I die cut the image and green glitter card stock (Retired Stampin' Up! stash) with the Honey Cut Dies: Globe & Ornament Shaker.
Here is the Honey Cut die set...lots of versatility for projects.
The smallest image and my favorite coloring was this one shown below die cut with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Circle Tags. I usually color 1 to 3 images of the same digital stamp and by the time I get to the 3rd one, I know the colors I like the best.
I love these little tags for gifts at any time of the year. I plan to cut the same tag again to create a backer for the watercolor piece. That will help keep it flat and I'll have a nice smooth area to stamp a sentiment.
Thank you so much for joining me today and I hope you think about how you could create ornaments or tags with your creations. Come join us at The Paper Funday Challenge in July - Anything Goes!
