I have good intentions of playing along with
Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas this year.
I managed to get the first one done...so wish
me luck on doing all 12!!
I did some improvising for this tag.
I stamped the Peace with perfect medium and
embossed it with silver EP. I fussy cut it out
and then covered it with silver glitter. I adhered
a grunge board flourish to the bottom also embossed
with silverEP and covered it with silver glitter.
I needed some pine cones but I didn't have
the die cut for it so I had to resort to my
"pear punch". I punched out the pears from
vintage photo core'dinations that I lightly sanded.
A great tip that I learned today was to glue
the pine cone around a wooden toothpick.
I shaped the pears and one at a time glued them
around the toothpick until it looked full enough.
I used 11 pears for each pine cone.
I'm thinking they look a little like brown
roses more than pine cones but like I said...
I had to improvise....lol!!
This was a lot of fun to make!!
I was trying out my Rosette die last week
and thought it would make a great ornament!!
I wanted it to be 3D so I made 2 pieces and
adhered them together and running a chain
through the center and adding a Hanger clip
to the top to hang it on the tree.
I stamped the Noel onto 2 small pieces of metal
and adhered them together front and back
of the hanger.
I hope you like it!!
Have a wonderful day
Thanks so much for stopping by....
