More Tags

I have now finished a further four tags in Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas for 2010.
Again, I didn't have all the images that Tim used but used some of the stamps I already had and improvised! The pine needles is a Tanda stamp that I picked up in May. The pine cone was cut with the Cricut from the Joys of the Season cart.

Instead of using a stamp for the branch, I cut one using the Songbird card in the Cricut. The bird was also cut with the Cricut and stamped with a music stamp, then coloured using Fired Brick DI.  The rosette was made following Tim's instructions, with tissue tape and topped with a button. The image is one I found in a Christmas set. I cut it out, then edged with Walnut Stain DI and stamped with joy stamp using walnut stain DI. The white specks on the tag were made using the snow cap dabber before I inked the edges of the tag. The DI wipes off the paint and leaves it standing out slightly.

For this tag, I cut the trees, deer and wreath using the cricut. The trees were inked with distress inks. The deer was embossed with the snowflakes folder in the CB, then painted with blue paint and sanded on the raised embossing to provide the multicoloured effect. The tag was coloured using blue distress inks and edged with vintage photo.  The sentiment was stamped with fired brick and edged with vintage photo. Tissue tape was added to the bottom.

For this one, I cut some background paper and attached it to the tag. Added a santa picture that I cut from other paper. Edged the tag with stormy sky  DI. The large clear embellishment was coloured with alcohol ink then the snowflake stamped with archival ink then wiped off before it dried. Stuck the embellishment to white card and cut it out. Added the bling to the bottom of the tag. The sentiment is stamped in fired brick DI.

Have really enjoyed doing these tags and hopefully, might get the rest finished before Christmas - only 5 days to go!
