Sending Joy- A Trio of Tags


Hi Friends! 

Today I am sharing a three quick Christmas tags designed with the new Studio Light Sending Joy 6x6 paper pad, the Christmas Peace  and Merry Christmas stamp sets and other items all from Stamp Simply.

These tags were very quick to create- I used the 2” strips from the scraps from a few cards that I designed recently using the Sending Joy paper pad plus I also had a few of the lace die-cuts already die cut and ready to go (love using up my stash, lol)!

Many of you who follow my blog, know that I enjoy participating with online challenges! I will be linking this card to the Tic-Tac-Toe #140 Challenge (bottom row across- Die Cut, Sequins/Gems, Red), the Craft Rocket #87 Winter/Snow Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday #517-#518 “Anything Goes” Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to visit the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Die cut the various strips of Sending Joy patterned paper using the medium tag die from the Tim Holtz Tag Collection Dies (my strips were only 2” wide so I positioned them in the die to allow the patterned paper to be layered onto the die cut tags from the dark green cardstock.

Die cut three additional tags (using the same size die) from dark green cardstock.

Die cut the paper lace using the Tim Holtz Crochet Dies from white cardstock.

De-static the patterned tag strips with an embossing powder tool, stamp the verse sentiments from Christmas Peace and Merry Christmas with Versafine Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Layer the die cut paper lace on two of the patterned paper tag pieces before adhering to the green die cut tags.

Layer a strip of white crochet lace onto the remaining strip of patterned paper tag, adhere to the remaining green tag.

Stamp and heat emboss the star from the Merry Christmas stamp set, die cut with the Merry Christmas coordinating die, and mount onto the tag with dimensional foam.

Color the star using a gold water-based marker.

Die cut three of the hole re-enforcers from the Tag Collection Dies from dark green cardstock and adhere to the tags.

Use a clear glitter marker to add shimmer to the poinsettias, snowflakes and other items on each of the tags and adhere a pearl to the center of the star along with the snowflake on the Spirit of Christmas tag.

Loop pieces of gold twine to finish off the tags.

What a beautiful collection of tags Julie! I love the use of printed paper to make things easier and the filigree detail border is a lovely touch. Thanks for joining us over at Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week!

Your tags are just beautiful Julie! I love the papers you've used and the verses/sentiment you used to top them. The lacy trim looks lovely against the darker background strip. Thank you for coming to play at The Tic Tac Toe Challenge! Vicky x
