Well I have to share that I’m having way too much fun with the Christmas products from the holiday mini catalogue and the 2009-2010 idea catalogue. I decided to sign up for Chrystal’s tag swap for the third year in a row. Here is what I created for my fellow swappies!
This is a tag for those large gifts that you just can’t wrap properly. I used my favorite bigz clear die, scallop square and used the on board book basics as my background chipboard #110713 and the specialty designer series paper, christmas cocoa specialty from the mini catti. Glued them together using my tombo glue. I took the vintage ornaments I stencils from the definitely decorative catti and dabbed chocolate chip ink in my stencil. I then added my second stencil and put some stencil paste to create a 3D image. Why? Because my husband said it wasn’t popping out enough… And he was right! I hate to admit it but he is pretty good at commenting on my projects. Try it with your husband let me tell you some interesting ideas come out. My stencil paste was white but when it dried it had a little greenish color which I didn’t like at all so I dabbed some chocolate chip ink on my paste and needed to also add a little champagne mist shimmer paint. And voilà!
Here is my close up picture! Vintage it is. Then I added a mini tag from the stamp set Four the holidays and I added 1 1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon in chocolate chip.
Second tag was very simple and quick to do. I saw this die at convention and had to order it. It’s exclusive to stampin’up!, Stampin’up! Two tags. I decorated it with the specialty designer series paper, christmas cocoa specialty from the mini catti. When you touch this paper it feels like felt. I punched out a snowflake from the Jumbo snowflake punch and added some frost white shimmer paint. Let me tell you, you can go a long way with that shimmer paint. I have been using it like crazy! I had to add my final touch a pearl from the pretties kit and 5/8" satin ribbon. And for all the ladies in my group, I personalized all your tags.
I printed the names on my computer matching my ink to the stampin’up! colors RGB codes.
That is my share for the day, have a great one!
