More Christmas Tags…
Three more of our versions of Ellen Hutson’s 12 Days of Christmas with a Feminine Twist tags to show you today!
This was one of the more difficult ones since I had never worked with shrink plastic in UTEE before. The ornaments were cut from Tim Holtz' Ornaments die, put into UTEE to shrink and then embossed with a background stamp while still warm. Pearl Ex was brushed on the ornaments - the colors look really pretty on the black. We used silver acrylic paint for the ornament top and then wrapped the wire around the neck of the ornaments (not my strong suit!) The background of the tag is again the Versamark resist technique.
This is one of my favorites! The tag is a kraft tag which we crumpled up, swiped with a white craft ink pad, then stamped snowflakes randomly on the tag. The chipboard snowflake was painted with Distress Ink Pewter Crackle Paint and let dry, then attached to a small doily. The white Prima flower was adhered and then the stickpins were pushed into the back of the flower. (The stickpins were white pearls - we died them with Ranger Tumbled Glass alcohol ink!) December 25 is a Cornish Heritage Farms stamp that I cut to look like a ticket, then some silver tinsel garland was stuck in for some sparkle.
Another ornament tag with a different twist. The ornaments were punched out of Ranger Foil Tape and adhered to cardboard, then embossed with the Big Shot. We used Ranger Lettuce alcohol ink to color them. Some silver glass glitter was sprinkled on the top and bottom of each ornament. The foliage was cut from the plastic box that housed Tim Holtz' Tattered Pinecone die and swiped with a silver craft ink pad. We then used the heat gun to heat them and it was really cool how the leaves got a little twisted and you could actually shape them. It gives them some "life" on the tag rather than just being flat - really neat technique! If you don't like the way they look, just heat them again!
Three more to show tomorrow!
