New Winter Tags

Hey Everyone!
Are you ready for the holidays? I have been busy getting the house ready for Christmas and I can't believe it's only a week away!
I was determined to create some holiday tags and they are finally finished. I used mostly what I had in my stash and a couple of finds from Michaels. They had little packs of snowflake and deer chipboard shapes for 1.00. I believe you get 10 of each shape in the packs.

I covered the shapes in silver glitter glass and sprayed them with Perfect Pearls Heirloom Gold spray to antique the glitter. The color combo is a little different from the traditional colors of Christmas and I think it worked great. I used Songbird papers from Prima, along with crystal swirls, Poinsettias, Splendor leaves, North Country stamps and Au Naturale flowers.  

I colored the leaves with Lettuce Adirondack colorwash by Ranger. I also colored some of the seam binding with Ranger Tattered Rose Distress stain and the doilies were colored with Antique Linen Distress stain. Cover six manila tags with coordinating papers from the Songbird line. Then add strips of the papers along the bottom of the tags or make your own banners and use punches with the scraps of paper. Here I used my scallop circle punch by Marvy. I added an Au Naturale flower to the center and then topped it with a glittered snowflake and crystal center.

I covered the deer chipboard shape I found at Michaels with Wendy Addison Emporium glass glitter. I found jars of it at Tinsel Trading Company in New York. They have a wonderful color selection for all kinds of projects. Then I mixed in peachy/pink colored Poinsettias from Prima with crystal swirls and a little stamped sentiment from the North Country stamps.

I used one of my colored doilies on the background and wrapped some seam binding around the tag with a bow on the side. I added a chipboard snowflake to the center of the Au Naturale flower and finished it with a Jenni Bowlin button. I also stuck some pretty stick pins in some of the tags-love the look!

This tag also has a doilie in the background but I placed it off to the side and added my seam binding around the tag. Then I also added an Au Naturale flower with a poinsettia and snowflake to the center. I added twine to my bow with a Genie stone and smaller holly leaves tucked in around the larger ones. 

This tag is pretty straight forward. I wrapped the seam binding around the tag, punched a circle and added different sized snowflakes to the center with a poinsettia. Then finished it with leaves, pins and a little holiday sentiment.

I created banner from a scrap piece of paper and adhered it to the background. Then I wrapped a doilie around the center of the tag, added a flower with a snowflake, poinsettias, leaves and pins with a little sentiment stamped on a tag. Finish it off with some crystal swirls and it's done! 

Hope you like the tags! And I want to say-Thanks Kristina for reminding me that I needed to post these :)

This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep
a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was
