Itty Bitty Tag


OK, last Christmas thing, I promise!  This is another image from The Cat's Pajamas.  The tags are punched with Stampin' Up punches.  The image was stamped, clear embossed and colored with Copic markers.  I used Crystal Accents on the ornament to give it some shine.  The background is embossed with a Sizzix folder and the texture is tinted with chalk ink brushed lightly over the raised images.  The wrinkled ribbon was colored with reinkers (I love the varigated look!).  Last of all the tree is from the Quickuts set, Jolly which was released a couple of years ago (I think, I so lose track of time).

I am working on some Valentine's goodies for my daughter's volleyball team.  Hope to share them soon.

Aloha!

Tiny Stampin' Up Tag

A quick post...another tiny tag I did around Christmas.  I used the Stampin' Up tag punches and embossed the background with a Sizzix embossing folder.  The trees are from Quickuts, the Jolly collection from a few years ago and the deer is a Tonic punch.  I added some ink and Stickles to the background so it would show up better.  The trees are inked and the star was Stickled as were the deers antlers.  A little wrinkled ribbon at the top and your tiny tag is done.

Hope your weekend is going well.  The weather here has cleared and it is another bright shinny day in paradise.

Aloha,
Brenda

Snow Man Tag


OK, hopefully I am back.  Lots going on here at home.  I haven't done much crafting wise since mid December.  Since I still can't believe Christmas and New Year's have past, I will be posting a few tiny tags I did back then.

This snowman was inspired by a tag I saw on Splitcoast Stampers.  I just cut 3 circles using punches, inked the edges, the arms are a pruned Martha Stewart fern punch from eons ago.  I used Crystal Effets on his nose and used wrinkled ribbon to make his scarf.  This was a cute, quick way to to gift tags.

Hopefully I can manage my time better and the creative juices will begin to flow so I can begin posting a bit more regularly!
Aloha,
Brenda
