CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Christmas Tag

WI15SatHopWelcome
Woohoo!  It’s Saturday again!  How are you coming with all your Christmas projects?  I’m in the midst of still wrapping gifts…hope to get it all done this weekend.  I still need to make my tags, I put those on last, so haven’t been in a rush!  lol!  The theme for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop is Christmas tags!  This is a fun one…can’t wait to see what the Design Team has come up with!

 

I pulled out Christmas Cuties and the Lots of Labels Framelits for my tag…it is extra large for a big gift!

 

Christmas Cuties
Here are the details:

  • The base (center) portion of the tag is Soft Sky, stamped with the snow cluster from Happy Scenes with White Craft Ink and cut with the large Lots of Labels Framelit.
  • A 2″ strip of Whisper White cardstock was torn across the top and cut with one edge of the same framelit, then adhere along the bottom for the snowbank.
  • The Christmas Cuties image was stamped with Black Stazon and watercolored with an AquaPainter and Stampin’ Write Markers in Lost Lagoon, Pale Plum and Basic Gray.  It was cut out and placed on the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Snowballs were punched with the 3/8″ Circle (Owl Punch) from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and stacked into a mound with Mini Glue Dots.
  • The greeting from Christmas Cuties was stamped with Black Stazon in the upper right corner.
  • The Label was punched with the 1/4″ Circle Punch, then tied with White Glitter Ribbon.
  • Another Lots of Label was cut from Pale Plum and placed behind the Soft Sky one in the opposite direction.  Two Perfect White Accents were put on the tabs.

Isn’t that fun?  I love how it turned out!

  • The greeting was stamped with Black Stazon, too.
