25 Days of Christmas Tags...Day 23

 

Though I didn’t have the day’s sponsor images to use I decided to use Lawn Fawn, another sponsor, and the tag by Jo Thompson for my tag today.
Pink, as most of you know, is the granddaughter’s favorite color so this will be her tag. 
Using Lifestyle crafts circle nesting dies I cut a white card stock base tag.
Next I made a frame from the dies and cut out four craft foam pieces that I glued together and a pink graph card stock piece for the front.
Using the dies I cut an acetate piece for the window.
All these, except the white base piece I glued to get her and set aside.
On the base tag I cut a mask using Lawn Fawn “Simple Stitched Hillside Borders” then sponged the top with Distress Oxide faded jeans ink.
On the “sky” I stamped the image from Lawn Fawn “Winter Skies” with memento tuxedo black ink.
On the masked area I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Holiday Helpers” with the same ink.
Next i stamped the images from that set with the same ink and colored them with Copic markers before trimming them out.
Now the finishing...
In the center of the base tag I placed some Studio Katia “tiny iridescent bubbles” (they reminded me of snow) then I glued the glued together part of the tag.
Next I glued the elves to the front of the tag.
Finally I poked two holes in the top of the tag and threaded pink and white twine in to make the tag hang.

‘twas the night before Christmas...

 
and
Hard to believe that this card only took one stamp set!
I based it on the parts of the poem...
“all through the house not a creature was stirring...”
“The stockings were hung by the chimney...”
The base card is green card stock with a layer of black card stock.
On the next white card stock layer I stamped the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn set “Christmas Dreams” using Memento tuxedo black ink.
On another piece of white card stock I stamped the tree, fireplace and candle from the set.
These I colored with Copic markers including the rug.
On more white card stock I stamped the cat and stockings, colored them with Copic markers, trimmed them out and used glue dots to apply them.





every age has it’s own toys...

 

Having raised two boys into men I know from video games!!!
Christmas at our house still has at least one video game.
The base card is white card stock with a layer of red card stock and a layer of patterned paper.
On another piece of white card stock I stamped the image from Stampingbella “Game On” using Memento tuxedo black ink.
This I colored with Copic markers and trimmed the piece down to fit the card front.
