I used my favourite tag die set to cut the tags. The dies were made by Waltzingmouse Stamps and are now discontinued, but I do like that you can cut three different size tags. Here's a close up of each of the tags:
On each tag I stamped the sentiment, tree and some stars with Versamark and heat embossed with silver powder. I added extra stars using Kaleidacolor and silver inks. I finished the tags by adding some ribbon.
I was having such fun making the tags, that I decided to make another set. This time I created layered tags with watercolour card as the bottom layer and vellum for the top:
Stamps: Uniko - Pure Florals Poinsettia, Simply Said Christmas
Dies: Waltzingmouse - Stitched Tags
Accessories: Tim Holtz Watercolour Card; Vellum; White & Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder; Zig Brush Pens; Wink of Stella - Clear; Ribbons
I used the dies to cut the watercolour card and vellum. I laid out the cut tags in my MISTI stamper and stamped the large poinsettia in Versamark and heat embossed it with white powder. Then I put the vellum tags in the same layout and stamped the image again and this time embossed with Gold Tinsel powder. I embossed sentiments on each tag using gold powder. I used my Zig brush pens to water colour the flowers - I love the effect you get with this technique. I put the layers together, added ribbon and finished off each flowers with some clear Wink of Stella on the vellum to give some shimmer.
