And here's my project, a little tag set for Christmas....I think this will make a great pre-Christmas gift for a friend.


Products used:

The box for this tag set was created using a tutorial on SCS available here:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/tagbox/

For long and thin tags featuring cardinals: Stamp cardinals in brown ink on white card stock, colour (Copics used here) and cut out using coordinating die cut. Cut rectangle from white cardstock using die cut. Stamp branches in green ink, add brown ink to branches, and add colour to background using sponge or Airbrush. Adhere the cardinals using pop up dots. Punch hole in top of rectangle, add eyelet, and tie ribbon through.

For round tags featuring holly and berries: cut scalloped circles from red card stock using die cut. Stamp berries using green and red ink on white card stock, cut out with circle die cut and add brown background with sponge or Airbrush. Adhere white circle with image to the red scalloped circle. Punch a hole in the top, add an eyelet, and run ribbon through. Apply 3-d Crystal laquer to top of holly leaves and berries.

For tags using Label 3 featuring pine cones: Stamp pine cones in on white card stock and cut out with die cut. Colour and add ink to background, then add glitter. Punch a hole in the top, add an eyelet, and run ribbon through.



The next stop along the way for the blog hop is Olga's site,  http://www.craftieodamae.blogspot.com/
