I have had some of these done for a while now but here we go.
If you head on over the Funkie Junkie for week 4 you will see her tag which I ripped off..er....paid homage to, by having the focus on poinsettias and the colour red. I stamped a basic flower in silver and used white sparkly embossing powder for the background. I took 2 pieces of red and green ribbon and a paper snippet for the bottom and another snippet, I stamped the saying in red and adhered it to the tag. I used my punch for the leaves and I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the poinsettias and placed them on top with pop up dots.
I enjoyed creating this card but I realized I don't have any fancy small holly leaves. If you head over to The Funkie Junkie for her original take, please do. I coloured the tag in silver and gold metallic paint. I stamped, embossed and fussy cut the holly leaves as well as the Noel ornament. I literally just ripped a piece of paper and used distress ink pads for an old world colour (like that instead of saying mud) and stamped the sentiment. I glued it all together and added sparkle pearl drops that look more like gobs than drops....oh well.
Now, The Funkie Junkie's tag is so pretty and I love her Scandinavian background and total feel of her card. My tag...have pity on me for it looks like I just came from some mental ward. The blue, in the background, I tried using some pearl paint on a metal stencil but it didn't turn out all that well so I did my best to cover it. I added the red ribbon and the leafy punch. I stamped the trees and cut them so it would look like a forest with added silver sparkle that didn't photograph well(That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it). I stamped the sentiment and added that final part to the card. Let's move on shall we:)
This is 2 weeks ago but I am getting there:) It was a week of blue so I took my blue tag and stamped the deer in white snow glitter and did this same around the tag to make it look like one was looking through a window pane. I added the snowflakes, wrote, in my sad handwriting, "Let it Snow" and finished it with my sad little bow. Head on over to the Funkie Junkie to see her original and beautiful tag.
I am working on last week's tag but not sure when I will finish it. I hope to very soon. I still have to make my advent wreath and am late since first of Advent was yesterday. I do make it from scratch and it hangs from the ceiling with 4 candles on it...very German. I have no children and this tradition, along with the way I decorate the tree, will probably go the way of Jack Frost. My niece is not interested and I would not want to push something on her just for the sake of tradition. Geez, I just went morbid. Anyhoo, have a great week and I am going back to the couch.
