12 Tags of Christmas - Funkie Junkie Style #1

I needed to make some Christmas tags for My daughter-in-law's open house this weekend. While searching for ideas I came across a great challenge at The Funky Junkie blog, the Funkie Junkie Twelve Tags of Christmas. Most people started in September. Linda introduces a new tag each week for us to CASE. The challenge runs until December 17th.It's being sponsored by her store, The Funkie Junkie Boutique. She'll have a drawing for great prizes for several who enter all twelve tag challenges.

Here is her 1st tag.

I cased her design and most elements. My tag was cut from CTMH Vanilla cardstock using Cricut Artiste. There are so many fun tag shapes that I wanted to try. Mine are all cut at 5.5."

I stamped my background with Bamboo pigment ink and clear embossed it. I used a CTMH stamp called Jardin. It had butterfly wings which I substituted for the angel wings.

I sponged hollyhock and desert sand inks over the embossed surface and stamped music staffs on the bottom with Desert Sand.
The numbers and stars were cut from La Belle Vie patterned paper, using the darker Smoky Plum side. They were cut, along with the cardstock heart, using the Cricut Art Philosophy cart. The heart was dry embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder. Last of all I added more bling, some silver glitter glue around the edges and stars. and a couple of violet sparkles.

I've made 5 of the tags since last night, so I'll post all 5 of those today in separate posts. Thank you for visiting!

I'm sharing this tag with the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz #47 - Christmas, but no green, gold or red ( mine is pink, desert sand, smoky plum and silver)
Divas by Design #63 - Glitter and Sparkle
Simon Says Stamp and Show - a project with Heart
The Funkie Junkie - tag #1
