Merry Christmas Tag

Happy Sunday!! I hope you are having a great weekend!! I'm still out of town, but have this set to auto-post. I should be home tonight so I will be stopping by to visit in the next couple of days :) I wanted to enter the challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp & Show. The theme is "Inspired by Tim's 12 Tags"...and you can use any of his past tags for inspiration. I chose his Day 6 tag from 2010. Here is my take:


I chose to recreate this tag because not only do I love it, but I actually have most of the materials to make it :) The tag was cut from Tim's Tag & Bookplate die on Canvas Corp heavyweight cardstock. The porcelain crackle stamp from TH's Joyful Song was stamped on the Tall Pines Texture Fade embossing folder in Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and then the tag was embossed. The tag was then sponged with Broken China and Weathered Wood Distress Ink. The edges were distressed with TH's Tonic Edge Distresser and inked with Walnut Distress Ink. The tree tops were inked with Forest Moss Distress Ink, and the trunks with Vintage Photo. The dots stamp from TH's Psychedelic Grunge stamp set was inked with TH's Antique Bronze Distress stain and applied randomly to the background.

The deer was cut from TH's Reindeer Flight die in Grungeboard, and then embossed with a Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder. It was inked with Snow Cap Paint Dabber and once it was dry, sanded with TH's Sanding Grip. It was then sponged with Weathered Wood. The antlers were cut from TH's Branch Tree die and inked with Vintage Photo. The wreath is a pipe cleaner with a bell on the end from Joann's $1 bin. The wander charm at the top is from TH's Philosophy Tag.


TH's Tissue Tape was applied to the bottom. The Merry Christmas Tag is from TH's Odds and Ends stamp set, stamped on a TH Journaling Ticket. It was stamped in Fired Brick Distress Ink and then embossed with Recollections Blaze embossing powder. This powder is so awesome...it's red and gold mixed together for a beautiful embossed look!!

Here is Tim's tag I used for inspiration:


I am entering the tag in the following challenges:

  2. DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge - Anything Goes
  3. Sunday Funday #4 - Anything Goes

Just love your tag Lisa. The textures are wonderful. I don't have that reindeer die and have been making a similar whimsical tag with a baby face reindeer! Don't you just love the grunge paper and board? Love the embossing on the reindeer too.

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, your tag is amazing!!! (I personally think HE should get his inspiration from YOU.. just sayin') This is such a masterpiece. How you create such a flawless scene in such a tiny space continues to baffle me. The sweet reindeer is gorgeous! Every inch of it. What a clever use of pipe cleaner, too! You are always so resourceful. The bell is the sweetest touch, as is the tissue tape. :o) Everything about this is fantastic, my dear Lisa. What joy it will bring the recipient! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
