More tags!

Ready for a few more tags today? I am having so much fun in my craft room that it is starting to look like a tornado has blown threw it and scattered all my treasures to the four corners of the world! I don't know about you but I love having everything right at my finger tips and I also don't know how to put it up once I have finished using it especially when I am in a creative mood so everything just gets tossed here and there so I can just reach out and grab it. Anyway on to the tags...

This first tag is made using the Tim Holtz (TH) Tag die then embossed with the Snowflake Flurries texture fade. I used the Seasonal distress ink iced spruce and denim jeans. The red layer is the festive berries in on a strip of paper I embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder called Sheet music. The snowman from his Retro Holiday stamp set was stamped on Stampin'Up!(SU) Night of Navy card stock and white embossing powder was used. I cut out the snowman and pop dotted him on the top of the red layer. Snow flakes are made with the Winter Wonderland die from TH and Whisper White cardstock from SU! The bling is SU!

This tag is made from an ATC I had left over from a swap in December. I love the old vintage Santa from the TH stamp set called Holiday Collections and the green pine bough and calender are from Mini Holidays. I used gathered twigs ink to stamp the image then distress around the sides in the same ink. The ATC is made using the TH atc die, TH tag die was used for the tag and then it was embossed with a Sizzix folder. The tag is distressed with iced spruce and pine needles distress ink. I used some beads I had left from another project and crystal glaze to adhere them to the atc and a snowflake brad! Red and white ribbon and Real Red satin ribbon is from SU!

Lots of different dies and folders were used on this tag. Dies used were tag die, Vintage Cabinet Card, movers and shapers townscape, TH Christmas background and Sizzix music embossing folder. The Santa stamp is from the TH Holiday Wishes and was stamped in Basic Black from SU! and colored with Real Red on the hat! I used the Winter seasonal ink pads for coloring the various components.

I am off to the room of stash to play some more! I am having so much fun!
