Happy Tuesday Peeps!!!
Today I am sharing a tag I made using the color challenge this week on Splitcoast.
The colors this week are Real Red, Blushing Bride and Gumball Green with a dessert option of making a Holiday Thank You or a Tag.
Tag it is, since I was needed a few. I always give out Goodie Trays to neighbors, friends and family at Christmas and I like to put a handmade tag on each one, this year may be an exception as I only have a couple made and time is running short. Anyway, I decide to make a tag with these colors.
I had the idea for this tag awhile back and I had ordered me a pretty wreath die to use on it, this die comes from HERE. I used a chipboard rectangle coaster for this tag. I cut the edges at a slant to make it into a tag.
I covered the coaster with some Blushing bride cardstock and then I used some of my favorite music sheet paper. I left the bottom edge un-glued on the music paper because I knew I wanted to tear it to add my sentiment. I tore off a corner of the sheet music paper exposing the Blush card stock below and then
I sponged the edges of of the tag using Some Tim Holtz Distressing Ink, I also sponged the torn edge of the sheet music paper.
I die cut my wreath 4 times using gumball green card stock to make my wreath. First one I glued to the surface directly, the next wreath was added using very, very small bits of dimensionals. Then the next layer was glued. I then added my red bird, using real red card stock and my Stampin Up Bird Punch.
I nestled the bird into the wreath tucking it under a few of the branches. I then took my 4th wreath and cut it apart and added it around the wreath to give it even more dimension. I love this wreath and how it turned out.
I then used my Stampin Up Owl Punch for the little berries on the wreath. I glued them in ones and threes onto the wreath.
I used a small pearl for the eye of the bird. The wing on the bird was curled just a bit and added with a dimensional.
I was lucky enough to snag the Stampin Up Endless Wishes Stamp Set before it sold out, I had not even opened it until now. I used it to build my sentiment. I added the "and" symbol with my black marker.
I used my crop a dile to punch a hole in the top of the tag and added some Real Red Satin ribbon and rusty jingle bells to finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by today!
