I can't believe I am getting in under the wire, but I am! I have been crazy busy decorating last week and I do a lot of decorating! Last night I finished my final five tags for the 12 tags of Christmas over at the Funkie Junkie site. I really enjoyed making these tags and was very inspired by her creative works. She also has her own Boutique-the Funkie Junkie Boutique which is quite neat and I want to spend tons of money...but I can't:). So, without further ado (is that how to spell that slang..is it slang? I am getting a sick headache), here are my final tags.
I loved creating this Victorian style tag with an angel (I love angels). I had no stamp for the lamplight so I drew it by hand and cut it out. I stamped and fussy cut the holly leaves and the rose and pieced everything together with some added bling. Head on over the Funkie Junkie to see her original work and others who were inspired.
I love this tag if i do say so myself:). I used some green distress dies to darken the green tag. I stamped a little Christmas stamp and embossed in gold and also stamped along the edges and stamped that in Egyptian gold for some extra glitter. I used my sizzex for the cutout, added the greeting sticker with a bow and a star. Head over to the Funkie Junkie to see some extra wonderment:)
I love the Funkie Junkie's tag on this one so I did my best and I think I did ok with this one. I used some very pretty ribbon and laid down some cardstock on top to set my snowflake, filigree thingy and black piece on top. The snowflake and filigree thingy are punches. I took my white pen and added the dots plus the writing on the black pieces.
Over at The Funkie Junkie, her style is more country and so very pretty, maybe I went more rock and roll:) (Any Donny & Marie fans out there??). I love shiny and glitter (I must have been a magpie in a previous life) so I used some red shiny paper and a gold decal. I used my sizzex for the ornament cut out, placed the Christmas saying sticker on, added pearls, lace stars and gold stickles.
The last tag but I think it turned out to be quite pretty even though I was a bit bleary eyed by this point. Over at the Funkie Junkie, her tag is so beautiful so I emulated it as best as I could. I, again, used darker green ink pads and sponged them on with a hint of brown on the edges. I used my evergreen stamp and embossed it with white snow glitter for the background. The bottom part was added and I sponged on some gold and used the Egyptian gold powder for embossing. I stamped the Merry Christmas stamp, added the Noel in letter stickers. I inserted a piece of white card stock to make it look like a letter is in the pouch and added 2 punches of leaves that are also glittered up. A few crystals are the final additions to this final tag!
