Papertrey Ink December 2014 Blog Hop

Hello friends.  Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families and loved ones! 

The blog hop challenge this month at Papertrey Ink is to use silver and gold. 



So wish I was better at photographing sparkly and shimmery!  You'll just have to trust me that IRL this tag has lots of both!!  I used the "Basic Bookmark #3" die and stamped one of the trees from "O Tannenbaum" with gold metallic ink.  (oops...first stamped a French Script background stamp lightly in kraft ink)  The 2nd stamp that puts all the dots around the tree I embossed with silver.  The star and the tree base are embossed with gold.  The dots in the center of the tree I used silver stickles.  The "joy" die cut is from the "Holiday Wet Paint" dies and I used a gold mirror cardstock for that. I lightly sponged the edges with Walnut Stain Distress ink (TH) to give the tag a bit of a vintage look.  A couple gold and silver sequins, a couple sprits of iridescent gold shimmer mist, and some seam binding ribbon finished off my tag. 

You can check out all the other gold and silver creations on Nichole's blog right here .

Thanks so much for stopping by and have fun hopping!
