Good morning!! are you ready for Christmas??? Nope? me either....
In the meantime, Lets make some tags!
I hereby invite you all to make a Christmas tag and post it here in this post for a chance to win big. I'm going to give the winner 4 stamp sets of their choice! Create your Tag using your fave WMS stamps and upload a pic here in the inlinkz widget at the end of this post.
The main winner will be randomly picked. I may also award a spot prize or two for tags that really tickle my fancy so get your thinking caps on ladies, and show us your Christmas style!
Ok, my sample above is incredibly simple, about 10 mins to make, and this would be so easy to mass produce.
It's a great big tag with plenty of space for writing in those all important details, nothing worse than a wee taggy that doesn't give you space to say who the gift is from!! lol.
I used stamps from Candy Jar Christmas. - I used them pretty much as they are laid out on the sheet - you can see from the pics.
I stamped them in Memento Rich Cocoa onto white card. I like Memento as it sets quickly, doesn't smudge much and you can go in and pick out bits with a copic marker without fear of the ink running.
Next I picked a die to trim out my tags, Spellbinders Labels Seventeen is a great shape for these, ran it through the Grand Calibur once.
While the card is still in the die, I sponged, Antique linen of course.... I find that I don't even need to pass the card through again for embossing, the sponged colour highlights the embossing and there's no need to put it through again, a little time saving there. You can see the tape holding the die in place in the pic above, this eliminates the possibility of the die moving as you pass it through the GC.
I finished sponging and added a little golden shading around Mrs Santa and in the lettering using a copic. I added a little stamp - You're on my nice list - in red to the tag and also the word, To: from Candy Jar Christmas fillers, just to complete the tag. It really was very simple. I will add in the recipients details with a pen.
So, you have until Tuesday 20th December to make and upload your tag, each person should play only once, so give it your very best. Remember, as well as the top prize of 4 sets there may also be a couple of spot prizes, but only if I'm really tickled!!!
