Hi Everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217 Creations. I am so excited to share with you today. Normally I do not like to participate in swaps because I become overwhelmed by having to make the same thing over and over. I stink at mass production. But I was really excited when I was invited to join a swap between my fellow Design Team members at the Bug Bytes and She's A Sassy Lady. The best part was I only had to make 15.
The tag very easy to make. It was all done with dies and stamps. I stated by using the Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplate die. I cut canvas fabric with the die. I then glued the fabric to a paper tag from Ranger that is the same size. I then used Walnut Stain Distress Ink and stamped with a music background stamp. I inked the edges of the tag with Tea Dye Distress Ink. Then I took a Versamark pad and pushed it directly on to the tag. I immediately sprinkled Shabby Embossing Powder from Stampendous on top. I gently heat embossed the the powder. I then tied a ribbon through the top.
My next step was to cut the dear from the Tim Holtz die Reindeer Flight. I used CoreDinations paper for the deer. Using some pine garland strands I had left over from last Christmas, I created a small wreath for each deer. I tied a small jingle bell to the wreath. I slipped the wreath over the deer's head. I finally glued the deep and the wreath to the tag. I add some small red pearl gems to his nose. As I looked at the tags, I decided it needed a sentiment. So I stamped and heat embossed red ink and powder "Noel" from Pink By Design.
I know its a tinge early for holiday posts, but I was so happy for finally finishing something early and loving the completed project all at the same time! As always thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment and following us here at She's A Sassy Lady and on my personal blog at 217 Creations.
