Christmas Tag #5

And here is the final tag:

I used some background cardstock I had, then stamped the tall trees, and embossed with clear embossing powder.  They weren't very vivid, so I colored them with permanent markers.  I added some sheer silver ribbon, the JOY letters, some holly and some snowflakes.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the tags I've made for my loved ones for Christmas, and maybe gotten a little inspiration along the way.

I hope you have a very merry Christmas.

Christmas Tag #4

Day 4:

I cut the Christmas trees from some paper I had, then added dimensional glaze.  I used the same music stamp I used in some of the other tags, and the Martha Stewart snowflake punch.  The JOY letters are from TAC stamps.  I embellished the snowflakes with jewels and glitter glue, and smeared some gold metallic acrylic paint on the side of the tag to give it some texture.

Hope you enjoyed this tag.  Tomorrow I will share the last tag.

Christmas Tag #3

Day 3 of the Christmas tags:

This tag is for Emilie, who is 8.  I used the Christmas Ornaments embossing folder, then layered the different elements. It created a fun tag that she'll like.

Stay tuned tomorrow for Tag #4.

Christmas Tag #2

Here is tag #2:

Rachel is in chorus in high school, so I chose a musical theme for her tag.  I used the music notes embossing folder, embossed the background with gold and sanded off the notes so they retained their natural color.  I stamped the JOY using TAC stamps, colored with copics, cut out and added dimensional glaze.  I stamped the music score, cut out, distressed the edges and added a paper flower that was colored with copics.  The name I used some EK Success stamps, colored with markers, punched out and added dimensional glaze.  Hope you like this one, too.

Christmas Tag #1

Good morning. As promised, here is my first Christmas tag:

I was inspired by Tim Holtz to make some tags this year.  I used his embossing folder technique for this tag.  The background is then embossed with white embossing powder and then the raised part was sanded off, allowing the background color to show through. 

The large snowflake is a cuttlebug punch, and I embellished it with glitter glue and jewels.  "J" "O" "Y" was punched out and colored with copics, then I added dimensional glaze to them.  The smaller snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch and it also was embellished with glitter glue.  I added a stamped piece of music and some trimming and I was done.

Hope you enjoyed it.  I'll have another tag tomorrow.

Christmas Card 2011

Wow, I've been gone awhile, and while I've been gone, Google changed how I blog.  It will be a new learning curve for me for sure.

How have you been?  I've got this stupid cold that is going around, and it stinks!  I don't know if I will ever kick it.  However, being sick is not all bad. I got a chance to get into my studio and create.  First I will give you a preview of some of my Christmas cards this year.  I mailed most of them out before I realized that I hadn't scanned them, so I apologize for only giving you a preview of one of them.

Some of the reindeer I added "ornaments" to the antlers with glitter glue. Because I get bored making the same card over and over. The cards have different background papers, just to keep it fresh.

I also made tags for Christmas presents.  So stay tuned, and tomorrow I will share the first tag.

Hope you are doing something crafty today...
