Winter Wonderland Christmas Tag

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas!
Today, I am sharing a tag that was so much fun to make!  It's a rare event for me when I have an idea and I can keep the project in that direction (lol).   I knew I wanted the tag to look rustic and have the colours of silver, blue, and white.   I am so happy with the way the tag turned out.  My inspiration for this tag came from Frank Garcia. His Christmas tags are so pretty.  I found many versions of his tags done by other crafters; however, none in the colours I had in mind. So I was somewhat on my own with this journey.  I purchased the papers at our local craft store in Waxahachie (Crafter Scrapper).  The paper is by Bo Bunny's TIS THE SEASON collection. The sheets I used were:Tis The Season Yuletide #20501706 and Tis The Season Peace #20501702. The darker print with the large snowflakes was some paper I had in the stash.  The largest tag (base) is a pre-cut chipboard tag from Heart of Texas Studio (they come 2 in a pack).  I used 2 different Tim Holtz dies to cut the other two tags out of the patterned paper.  I added some dimension to those smaller die cut tags by cutting out some 2mm Fun Foam in the same shapes (Fun Foam purchased at JoAnn's).  I used score tape to adhere the patterned paper to he fun foam.  The silver swirls were cut using Tim Holtz's Thinlets "Scribbles & Splats" and the branches are from Tim Holtz Thinlets "Holiday Greens". The deer is a Tim Holtz Alterations Movers & Shapers-"Mini Reindeer & 25 Set". I made the bow using Tim Holtz's Alterations die "Bow-Tied".  I used a Fleur-de-Lys mini background stamp on the deer and embossed with silver/gray embossing powder.  The poinsettia was cut using Spellbinders "Layered Poinsettia" #S5-055.  The bow, the scribbles, the 25, and the poinsettia are cut out of DCWV's 12 x 12 "Glitzy" Glitter Cardstock Stack (it's the smooth glitter cardstock). I used some silver 1/2" ribbon from JoAnn's and some silver flat back adhesive backed pearls that I got from Hobby Lobby.  The little blue cluster is from Michael's holiday stems.  I made the tag by using a Spellbinder's pennant die, transparent  card stock from Michaels, Staz On Opaque, dots/spots mini back ground stamp, and a (retired) Stampin Up Greeting.  And the last thing I did was to add some silver-gray seam-binding.   I absolutely love how this tag turned out. 

Here is a close-up of the greeting.  I used the STAZ ON OPAQUE die on the transparent CS,  the dots/spots mini background stamp to make it look like it was snowing on the greeting and inked the edges to give it a frosted look.   

I plan to enter my tag in the following holiday challenges:

Christmas Gift Box

Happy Holidays!
I don't know about you guys but I have been busy with Christmas preparations.   Getting the house holiday ready and making lots of paper crafts.   Today I am sharing another cute box.  I saw this on You Tube, it was a tutorial by Donna Gray.  She calls it a Lovely As A Tree Ferrer Rocher Gift Box.  You can find the step-by-step tutorial here.  I used some Stampin Up card stock and the awesome "Lovely As A Tree" stamp set.  This stamp has been around for a very long time and it is still just as popular today! If you are interested, you can purchase this stamp set on my Stampin' UP! website by clicking on this link- Lovely As A Tree.  You can get it in rubber (aka Clear Mount- #127793, $20.00) or the traditional Wood Mount-#128655, $28.00).  To make my box I used some Always Artichoke Stampin' UP! cards stock #105119, $8.00; some gold foil paper, gold embossing powder, Versa-Mark, Spellbinders Pennants die templates, and a score board.  Well, that's it for now but I will be back really soon with more fun holiday projects.  Until next time..Au revoir !

Happy Holidays!!
