Hi everyone, hope the week is going well for you, mine took a lovely turn yesterday when I found that my Cabinet Cards from a couple of weeks ago had been featured by Tim Holtz on his blogworth holiday links post, very excited needless to say :D but what I really wanted to say is a big thank you to all who left such lovely comments on that post, they were very much appreciated.
So today I'm back with tag 4 for the Funkie Junkie 12 tags of Christmas 2012 which is kindly hosted by Linda and her Funkie Junkie Boutique. There's still time to join in although Linda has posted all twelve tags now she's kindly allowed until the 17th December for them all to be posted to her blog.
I loved Linda's tag for week 4 and took inspiration from the colours, chose a similar layout and elements but different to suit the things I had on hand.
I chose an Artistic Stamper large gingham check stamp for the background and inked it with gathered twigs distress ink and I really like how it looks so I'll be using it again. My tag is cut with the Tim Holtz Tag and bookplate die from Ranger card and I embossed red card same as Linda but I used Core'dinations kraft core with a small star embossing folder by Craft Creations. The music stamp is Tim Holtz, the 24 numbers and the heart Tim Holtz movers and shakers dies and the little poinsettia cut from kraft glassine is a Magnolia DooHickey die. The holly leaves are a Woodware punch with green bazzil card and the heart was cut from recycled corrugated card.
I added pearls, a metal sentiment embellishment, gingham ribbon and a rusty bell tied with twine to finish off. This is one of my favourites of the tags so far, I'm really enjoying making them and will be back soon with tag 5. Enjoy your day.
