Day One - Christmas in a Coffee Shop
Day Three - Feliz Navidad
Day Four - Let it Snow

Here's how I was inspired:

Let's start with my tag:

My overall color palette is:

Cranberry - Concord & 9th
Chocolate Malt - Bazzill

The tag is Essentials by Ellen Tag Trio by Christine Herrin.  The sentiment is from Tag It - Christmas on one of the Farmhouse Tags.

The gingerbread house is from the House Box, the stamped details along with the Gingerbread girl + boy is from the Ginger house set.

I love tone-on-tone stamping.  Do you see the Swirl Background?  I stamped it in Cranberry ink to coordinate the tag.

So, I actually started off with the House Box and was going to use it as my 'tag' but then thought it's really a box, not a tag.  I decided to go ahead and finish it off because it's so cute.

I've had this die set for awhile and honestly, it's the first time I put it together so I'm so glad that I decided to use it.  All the white detailing is from the Ginger House stamp set, heat embossed in white.  The tag is from the Farmhouse Tag set with a sentiment from the Tag It Christmas set.

There are two identical sides that look like this:

I ADORE those scallops, so sweet!

I can't wait to see how you're inspired!
