A Trio Of Christmas Tags

Hi hope you are all well, and have done all your Christmas prep! Craft work aside 
I tend to be last minute dot com when it comes to Christmas.
Today I bring you three tags from the Artistic Stamper's
Christmas selection of stamps.
My products used are
Crafty notion guiding flakes in Autumn gold, craft card (mine is the back of a box of Pepsi packaging),  
3 x tags, black card. 



Firstly I coloured the three tags with blending wild honey, spiced marmalade & 
aged mahogany distress ink onto the tags. 


I then stamped the snowflakes and the merry christmas on to them with fired brick and chipped sapphire. I covered the tag in gloss multi medium and pressed them all against each 
other to create a texture into the medium.


 I then sprinkled glass beads onto them and also crafty notions guilding flakes, and allowed to dry
once dry I sprayed each tag with the delusions sprays and allowed to dry.


Tag 1
For this tag I used the snow flake stamp,  the season greetings from the Victorian 2, 
 and the little girl at the fireplace from the mini Christmas plate. I stamped them in 
black archival onto craft card tags. The wooden snowflake coloured with distress
 ink and coated in media crackle glaze. The top star was black fimo clay stamped with the bauble pattern and a star shaped cutter was used to cut it out, once baked it was highlighted with treasure gold.


Tag 2
Father Christmas of the mini Christmas 2 plate and the snowflake stamp.
Wooden snow flake same as above merry Christmas stamped into 
black fimo clay baked and highlighted with treasure gold.


Tag 3
Same as above for snowflakes and stars stamps used were snowflake stamp, merry Christmas of the Christmas greetings and father Christmas of the Victorian Christmas plate 2. string on the tags was swiped with fired brick distress stains. All tags were glued on using my hot glue gun as had trouble fixing them on with other glues. 
they were all attached with a mini attacher to the back of Pepsi packaging which had had the sides  treated with distressing blade and then finished with walnut stain distressing ink.

I have done it again I must try to make much simpler posts with less products. Thank for popping by
and don't forget to leave a comment or two.
Cheers Dee x

They're fantastic, Dee! There's such depth to those fiery reds with all those layers of inky colour, and I love the underlying texture from the medium. The overlaid tags with the vintage images are beautifully framed by all that hot colour!
