I found these awesome tags at Momomushy which you can print in color or black and white. I printed these in B&W on cardstock and colored them with Prismacolor markers.
I love the online subscription of Crochet World Magazine, which I can access from my PC or I-Pad! This 'Chunky Speckled Neck Warmer' is a super easy pattern in the December 2011 issue - just 45 double crochets in 9-13 rows done in a 6 - bulky yarn with a size 10 hook. The starting chain really has to be done as loose as possible.
I wanted a cute tag I could attach to the top of the neck warmers, so I used this digital penguin stamp I had previously downloaded and opened it in Microsoft Word, added my own font underneath and put 4 on a page of cardstock to print out and color. I then cut them in rectangles and punched a hole to add a ribbon in the corner.
Of course, Christmas cards! This cute snowman is a digital stamp from Hero Arts that I downloaded from Two Peas in a Bucket and layered on sparkly pink cardstock, which I embossed. The scarf is a separate stamp (included) and layered over top the snowman with foam dots. I colored this little guy with Prismacolor colored pencils using a great tutorial on colored pencils.
These cards were made with a cute 12x12 cardstock of doors, which I cut out and embellished with Stickles and popped up with foam dots over embossed cardstock. On some I added ribbon and stamped a sentiment.
