I know it's only June and the sun keeps making an appearance but as a card maker I'm sure you know that making your own cards and tags takes time so it's never too early to start.
Today I'm sharing a tag, simply because I had some ink left on my craft sheet after dying some ribbon. Rather than just wiping it up like I usually do I decided to use it on a tag.
I had some Pine Needles Distress Ink on my craft sheet. I spritzed it with some water and dragged a tag through it. I then dried it with my heat tool, blotted the tag into the remaining ink, dried it and repeated the process until all the ink was used up. I then swiped some Broken China Distress Ink across my craft sheet, spritzed it with water and did the same as I had done with the pine needles ink.
I then stamped a few snowflakes from the Creative Expressions Snowflakes and Sprigs Stamp Set using Broken China Distress Ink and a few sprigs from the same stamp set using Pine Needles Distress Ink.
I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Winter Greetings Stamp Set onto milk card using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using one of the Spellbinders Holiday Tags dies. I inked through the die with Pine Needles Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I cut another Holiday Tag out of green card adding the Small Polka Dots Mask at the emboss stage.
I positioned both the Holiday Tags at the hole in the main tag. I threaded some blue Baker's Twine from the Vintage Set and some green from the Primary Set through the holes.
Don't forget that Sue is launching a Christmas Spellbinders Pick of the Day tonight at 9pm on Ideal World. Pop over to her blog for a sneeky peek.
I'll be back tomorrow with a card.
Thanks for stopping by.
