Christmas Tag

I am writing this as I got an unexpected day off today.......I was on call last night and had to pretty much work all night.  So after sleeping, I call work and they said I could have the day off!!  So I'm making the best of it!  I actually made this tag last night in between calls but didn't get to type my post due to the phone calls! 

I decided to use some awesome stamped images my sweet friend, Renee, sent me a while back.  The images are from the Big Blooms-Poinsettias by Waltzingmouse Stamps.  So much detail in these stamps!  They were colored with various Copic markers, glittered up with some Prisma Glitter, and one was popped up for dimension!  Adding in a sentiment from Teeny Trees stamped on the double ended banner die, completed my tag.  After some stong encouragement, I am sending this over to the Christmas Tag Challenge at Waltzingmouse Stamps.  (Thanks Renee!)



I also used this week's Make it Monday technique to use any die for a folded tag!  I haven't played along in FOREVER but this challenge was perfect for this tag!  Stamped on the inside of the Mat Stack #3 Die shape, is the "to" and "from" words from Teeny Trees as well!  Did you notice the pattern paper?  I challenged myself to use Holiday Flourishes & Swirls paper from PTI for this.......I love the end result!


Well, that's it for me today as I'm going to try to get some wrapping done on my unexpected day off!  Stay tuned to the 'ole blog as Market Street Stamps is into their December Release and I have a sample that will be shown on Wednesday!  Thanks so much for stopping by during this busy holiday season!
