Twelve Tags of Christmas - More Tags

Hello friends.  Hope you're not tired of seeing Christmas tags as I'm still cranking them out!  I do sell a good portion of my tags though, so no worries that I'm buying hundreds of gifts so that I have tags to attach to them!

I got a couple new stamp sets from Stamplorations thanks to Nancy who is so good at enabling, and made up a couple of tags and a card using one of the stamp sets called Layered Poinsettia's.

I used a couple of PTI's Bookmark Dies (#2 & #3) to cut my tags...one in a rustic kraft and one in white.  I used SU!'s Sheet Music background stamp with Tea Dye distress ink and then got out my Lindy's Magicals and tried the technique where ink your stamp with Versamark ink and then use a damp paintbrush to add the Lindy's Magicals powder over the Versamark.  I spritzed lightly with water and then stamped on my tags...the shimmer and shine is incredible!!  Now if I could just figure out how to capture it on my photos!!  I used Autumn Maple Crimson and Ponderosa Pines Olive for the Poinsettia and leaves.  Next I stamped the outlines and then embossed my sentiment from PB's Yuletide Wishes in black.

And because I still had all my supplies out I made a card too...


LOVE this stamp set...it really makes me look good!  Hahaha!!  I used just regular ink (Gina K's Red Velvet, Cherry Red, & Fresh Asparagus inks) to stamp the flower and leaves this time.  After stamping my sentiment (again from PB's Yuletide Wishes) I layered to a piece of Real Red cs and then adhered that to a white card base.  A few iridescent sequins finished off my CAS card.

You can check out Loll's tag event right HERE and be totally inspired and then play along too!  This tag event is open till this Friday the 16th.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  4. Looks like you've had a ton of fun with this great stamps set, Marcia!! The tags are awesome. Love both versions. It's amazing how different they look with just one singe, subtle change in background colour. Fabulous with the musical stamped background. And love the bright colours from the modern stamped poinsettias. I can imagine how shimmery they are from the magicals. :) Thanks for playing along, sweet friend! xx

  5. Wow...2 Gorgeous vintage style tags and 1 beautiful CAS card design with your new Layered Poinsettias stamp set, Marcia. I loved the sentiments on all 3 projects too. TFS my friend. Hugs..Nancy

    I learned how to get the shine from the Magicals from Hideko...lay your tags or card down and tip a bit with an object behind the project. I have a few in my blog and Hideko has many more. It really works! I also use a tripod so do not get a blurry image. Hope that helps. Hugs..
