Bloggers Challenge-Merry Christmas!

 Merry Christmas!!!  I am posting a tag I made for Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas for my Bloggers Challenge Christmas theme this week- this is my husband's favorite tag that I made......  The colors are red and green Ranger Distress ink, and the Distress Embossing Powder is Tea Die Distress EP.  The flecks are shimmery- I used Perfect Pearls.
On this tag- I followed a tutorial on Shelly Hickox's blog (fellow Technique Junkie) to make the silver flowers- very simple and wow- they look great! I punched the silver fern leaves from metallic silver paper.  I had some gorgeous organdy ribbon- it is green with a shimmer of red through it- to finish the tag and I decided to try a technique I have seen on SCS- where you heat your Organdy ribbon- I love the effect.

Now, I do not use tags alot, so made a card out of each of the tags I created as well.... Here is the 2nd tag and the card I created- I made 2 of these.  The ribbon treatment is also organdy ribbon with heat applied- this piece shows more of the red tint- it is the same ribbon I used in the tag shown above.  The frame stamp is See D's.  The Flourish is from  ISC, and the Sentiment is from Firecracker Designs by Pamela.  I have to say, these tags look alot better IRL!




If you left comments on Tim Holtz blog you had a chance to win goodies!  There were about 3000 posts a day, so I was not holding my breath.....well, I got really lucky!!!  Here is my Blog Candy from the 12 days of tags post!  My package arrived Thursday.  I cannot wait to use the Distress Stickles and I love the Rock Candy Crackle Paint.
How awesome is that?
