12 Tags of Christmas - Day 3

Inspired by Tim's Tag, but yet again not having supplies on hand I set out with my take on his tag.  While I do have a lot of crafty Ranger products, I didn't have the Reinkers, stamps or matching embossing folder. So I did the next best thing, improvised with what I had on hand!


I cut a Kraft tag using SCAL and the eCraft for my base.  The stamped image is from Our Daily Bread Designs Christmas Door set; to add color I used STAEDTLER Marsgraphic Markers, coloring directly on the rubber, then stamping onto the Kraft Tag.  I love these dye based markers as they stay really wet, and allowed me to do second and third stamp generations which I'm saving for future projects!  Once my tag was dry, I embossed with the Snowflake Texture Fades folder and swiped the snowflakes with Ranger Picket Fence Distress Stain.  To embellish, I embossed my jingle bells with a mixture embossing powders (brown/Ranger Tinsel) and added the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia Die. (Note this die is not currently listed on the ODBD website, but you can call to order.)  I added a bit of Tinsel EP to the Poinsettia/Leaves to add some bling.
