Sunday Stamper: Tags

What a lovely crisp morning this is! Just the weather to put on my walking boots and go out and admire the countryside. I thought I would celebrate the season by doing a 'tag with tags' for Hels challenge over at the Sunday Stamper.

I made the background to the large stamp with Forest Moss stain and Metallic Pewter stain by sloshing them on the craft mat and drying off in layers. The sheen from the metallic doesn't show up well in the photo. Then I stamped in Forest Moss the different fir tree stamps I have from Tim and then die cut the branches with a Marianne die and added the Tim fir cone die. The snowflakes were on a ribbon and I love the holographic shine to them. 'Winter Trees' was added at the bottom with crystal stickies to add to the winter sparkle.
The tag's tag's (!) were die cut from a sizzix die I have had from the start of my die cutting adventures, coloured in the same way as the large one and then a little piece of burlap added to each one. The holly, Ivy and mistletoe dies were from Marianne and Tim dies that I coloured in with Forest Moss distress marker and then made a little label and added snowflakes.
That was fun to make. I have also managed three Christmas cards which is not at all enough, so I will off to make a few more and have a show and tell later. I'm getting properly in the spirit of things now! Good excuse for a nice lot of bling. I love Hel's poinsettia she has made over on her blog, methinks I must get the melt pot out! Have a lovely day everyone. x


  1. Your seasonal tags are beautiful Barb, loving how you blinged up the wording. Melt pot? - can't wait to see what you do with that too, you are right, Hel's poinsettia is beautiful. Hugs, Anne x

  2. Hi Barbara, lovely tags, love the natural burlap and your gorgeous lettering. Love the snowflakes too. Tracy x

  3. Gorgeous tags, loving the icy greens... thanks for joining in with the Sunday Stamper x

  4. Great tags - the colour on the larger one reminds me of misty walks in the forest and I love the burlap on the smaller tags - very tactile!

  5. What lovely tags Barbara. They have a gorgeous rustic look to them which makes me think of all the lovely rustic decorations I've seen in garden centre displays this year. Lots of lovely texture too.
