Noel tag – Tonic Studios

Helllo and happy Friday! Christmas eve is just around the corner and today I am sharing my last Christmas themed tag for this year with you:

For this tag I again used the Magnificent Magnolia stamp set to create the background for my tag. I simply took the leaf pattern stamp from the set and repeatedly stamped the image with embossing ink onto the background. Next I poured some golden embossing powder over the stamped areas and heat set the powder with a heat gun.

After that I inked the white tag with Bundled Sage Distress ink and added a frame sticker as a focal point. I decorated the frame with Harvest Moon Glitter Accents and adhere the bird sticker into the middle using a 3D foam underneath it. This way it is more dimensional. I then added Nuvo Glaze drops onto the wings and poured some Ice White Pure Sheen Nuvo Glitter onto the glazed areas. I let that dry properly and then wiped any loose glitter off and added some Harvest Moon glitter details there too. For finishing touches I added a word Noel, created with stickers from Basic Grey and bound a matching ribbon to the tag. I really like the combination of the stamped image with the bundled sage colour on the background. It makes it very elegant and festive looking.

That´s iit for this years Christmas themed tags. In January I´ll start sharing tags again, but this time with another theme :).

Happy crafting and happy holidays,

25 Days of Christmas Tags – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and welcome to  the 8th annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags event organized by Tracey McNeely!!! Today marks day 15 of 25 days of Christmas tags and it´s time for the STAMPlorations girls to share their tags.

If you aren´t familiar with this event, you definitely should check the line-up of the amazing companies and their design teams who joined this year – there is sooo much inspiration available, so don´t miss this one!!! Today is day 15, so go to Tracey´s blog to see all the previous posts too – and there are also prizes to be won *wink*.

Now to my project for this year – let me start with the steps:

I again created a shaker card for this years post. I love making them :). Here, by the way, is my last years project, just in case you want to see the video to how to build up a shaker card really easy. But let me continue with the steps. First I chose two sizes of the STAMPlorations Stitched Tags Nesting Dies and die cut one base piece (solid) and several pieces to create the window/frame from white cardstock.

Then I adhered all the window pieces together, added some super strong adhesive tape and a acetate piece to build the window.

Next I inked the top piece and the solid tag piece with Bundled Sage and Salty Ocean Distress Ink tones and added a heat embossed Christmas sentiment into the middle of the solid tag. The sentiment is by STAMPlorations – from their Typografia Christmas series and called: Merry Little Christmas. I stamped the sentiment to the background with embossing ink, then applied golden embossing powder and heat set it with a heat gun. There are also very small water droplets on the background, created with the water tank brush.

Before I adhered the bottom and the top parts together, I filled the frame with various Nuvo sequins, stars and circles. Here are some detail photos of the finished tag.

I really love the Salty Ocean ink tone so very much! I think I used blue last year too ;-).
