Hello friends~ It feels good to be getting creative with paper, stamps and dies again. I've got some tags that I made for Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas. It's almost over so I'm glad I found time to play along.
Day 8 is inspired by Loll's "tweet" tag found here.
I started by creating my own stencil by cutting the Snowfall Reverse Cut Die from Frantic Stamper out of a piece of acetate. Then I added some Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the embossing paste before stenciling the snowflakes onto the background of the tag which was cut using MFT's Stitched Tag Stax. The images from "For The Birds" by Sweet N' Sassy Stamps are stamped and colored with Copics. The bells and holly images are from Avery Elle's "Kitsch Christmas".
Day 7 is inspired by Loll's guest designer Karen found here.
I started by cutting two Main St. Pinpoint Tags from Poppystamps in two graduating sizes. The woodgrain patterned paper is from ECD Wood Effect from Moda Scrap. The double cut word JOY is from PTI's Holiday Double Cuts. The top layer is cut from silver cardstock and mounted on top of a strip of silver glitter paper. The snowflakes are cut from white cardstock on which two of them were covered in Teal Silk Microfine Glitter from ECD.
Day 6 is inspired by my dear friend Marcia as she was Loll's guest designer for that day. You can find her darling tag here.
I pretty much CASE-d Marcia's tag, changing it up just a little bit using what I had. I cut a tag using PTI's Tag Sale #3 out of aqua mist cardstock and stamped some snowflakes from random sets in aqua mist ink. I then cut another tag out of white cardstock and cut the center out using the Wildwood Collage die from Memory Box. I added some Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the snowy edge at the bottom and throughout the trees. I cut the tree using Impression Obsession Fir Trees and went around the edges using a silver paint pen. The deer is cut using Impression Obsession Small Deer. He is colored with a copic and then edged with a bit of distress ink. The tiny tag was stamped using Hero Arts Color Layering Snowy Tree.
You can find all the details of Loll's challenge here.
I'll be adding one of these tags to the following challenges:
Dies R Us ~ Snow
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Furry Friends
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
