Now, onto my creations!
Holidays can be crazy as I am sure you already know. Sometimes you may want to give a handmade or homemade gift such as a knitted scarf, baked goods or even a beautiful frame with a family picture inside. Well, I ALWAYS forget to get tissue paper to wrap these delicate items. I HAVE A SOLUTION! I have created these stamps that are very versatile not only for the holidays but for any time! 

I used these stamps as background stamps so that I could dress up some plain white tissue paper for a gift. It's really a simple creation and only takes a few minutes! All you need is white (or whatever color you prefer) tissue paper, ink (whichever colors you would like to use that you have on hand) and your stamps!

This is what I started with 

I inked the stamp with blue and then stamped the image I chose on the white tissue paper.

I then cleaned my stamp and inked the image with the silver ink.

Now you have some decorative tissue paper for packages for the holidays. You can use any color with this image to celebrate birthday, anniversary or anything! I love the simplicity and how elegant it comes out :)

I also used this stamp set to create a background paper for a creation I am planning on making! Nothing like saving some time by making some additional creations while I have all of the items I need out :)
I also created a gift tag with some scraps because who doesn't like to use up some scraps!

Thank you for hopping along and hopefully you enjoyed my projects! I am the last stop on the hop so I hope you enjoyed the amazing talent and projects you have seen!! Good Luck on the amazing giveaway from Elizabeth!!  I hope you win :)

I hope you have a wonderfully CREATIVE day!
