12 Tags of Christmas - Day 7...From our House to Yours

Inspired by Tim's Tag for Day 7, I set out on my creative journey, improvising along the way, here's what I came up with


For the base of my tag, I used Distress Inks in Antique Linen and Vintage Photos, but sprtized my Tag with Perfect Pearls Mist before smooshing into the non stick craft sheet.  Once dry, I stamped the Honeycomb Background from Our Daily Bread Designs in Frayed Burlap (stamping off before I stamped onto the tag).  I used the Glassine Paper for the Poinsettia, inking one sheet in Fired Brick Distress Ink, and the other in Forest Moss, crinkled, then highlighted with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and die cut with Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia Die.  The die cuts looks a little plain, so I popped them into an embossing folder to add a bit more texture.  Don't use the standard embossing stack when embossing the Glassine after it's been cut, or your die cut pieces will fall apart - trust me, lesson learned!  Still wanting to give the die cut pieces a bit more pop, I edged with with a Gold Leaf pen.  I added Gold Tulle and an antique crochet piece until the flower, then adhered to the tag using Glue Dot.  To further embellish I added bits and pieces of Zva Creative Flourish Crystals, dyed Seam Binding and the sentiment from ODBD Christmas Door set.

Here's a close up of the Poinsettia

Hi Lisa~

This is wonderful! I love how you built up the poinsettia. Using tulle under it gives it a corsage type look...makes it special...makes it pop! I love how you added the crystals in different colors...and the sentiment is wonderful. Oh! I forgot to mention that I love the impact of the crocheted piece under the poinsettia! You are so talented!

He IS Able!
