I have officially joined the mayhem that is Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas (55,000 views on day 1). It has taken me this long to get re-organised after a fab day with fab people last Sunday!
When I saw todays tag, I realised I had to do it as my friend Anne had already given me the Stamped Sentiment
So here’s my version for Day 7:
I swiped my tag in Cosmic Shimmer sprays (Red Firefly and Meadow Lush) and dried it with my heat gun. I heated a magic foam block and pushed a crumpled paper bag into it. I inked it with Distress ink – Black Soot and stamped my tag until i got the look I wanted.
I had run out of Kraft Glassine and I don’t have the holly die so I improvised. I swiped the crumbled paper bag in Meadow lush and stuck it to card stock once dry. I drew some holly leaves and branches on the back and cut them out. The lace ribbon was strips cut from an old lace curtain. I used a recycled button and a decorative pin from Creative Expressions and threaded some burgandy ribbon, which I had pulled at the end to gather it. I assembled the bits together (including Anne’s stamped sentiment):
‘Deck the Halls’; I had day 7 tag!!
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Christmas Crafting!
Ps. Pics from the Jamboree are on there way!!!
