Christmas tags

I bought a box of manilla tags last year as they make great gift tags. These were so easy to make...applied distress ink to the edges of the tag...sprayed with cosmic shimmer mist and allowed to dry overnight....stamped with a snowflake stamp. I made these with rich gold shimmer mist and then stamped the snowflakes in brown ink.....they also look good if you spray with silver shimmer mist and stamp the snowflakes in black.

Ingredients used:
Manilla tags.
Cosmic shimmer mist - rich gold.
Tim Holtz distress ink - vintage photo.
Papermania stamp duos - snowfall & snowflake decorations (I think these have both been retired).


A couple of quick cards I made this afternoon...thought I had better get on with making Christmas cards...left it too late last year and ended up sending shop bought cards (bad girl)

Ingredients used:
Xcut nesting dies.
Papers & sentiments from Pink Petticoat.
Martha Stewart snowflake punch.
Tim Holtz distress ink - tea dye.
Misc sticky gems & chalks.
