Cardztv 3D Challenge - 3 Small Tags!

First let me begin by saying
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
I hope you all had a wonderful time with
family and friends and that you felt
the abundance of God's blessings.  My
husband and I spent the day with my oldest
son, his wife and two boys.  It was a great day!
I can get used to NOT being the hostess for all these
holidays.  It felt great to go to someone else's home
and share in the chores and cooking.
My DIL Carrie did a wonderful job
on the food and preparations for this
special day.  I'm so lucky - she is AWESOME!

Now onto the newest challenge
from Cardztv!  I love tags and I was
really excited when Mary announced this
was our challenge.    I never used to make
tags, but recently have found that I can create
them and have as much fun as I do
in making cards.

Here are my three tags!  Love them!

I found a shape in the Silhouette store and I 
wanted the shape to be curly at the top so 
it would look like a hat.

I also used the fill page feature and cut
out an entire sheet of 12x12 paper of these tags.

To finish off the tag, I glued another tag
on the back to hide all of the twine I wrapped
around for the hat.  I like the finished look


I am having a hard time uploading videos so I 
took a few pictures as I was creating the tags.
I used painter's tape and masked each tag
from where I wanted to create the colored
hat.  The next two photos show how
I used the new Tim Holtz mini distress inks
to color the hats.  BTW - I love the little
inkers!  I can see myself using these
now instead of the bigger ones.


You also see a "craft mat" that I have my tags
taped on.  This mat makes it so simple
to ink and clean up the mess!


Who doesn't love Peachy Keen Stamps????
I like the bigger sets so I can choose the
size I need based on what I'm creating.
I picked out three different snowman faces
to create my tags.  I then colored the nose with
my Copic markers and used chalk on the
eyes and nose.  I love the dimension.


I used two sets of Cardztv Stamps
SNOW DAY & CHRISTMAS JOY

I love how you can mix Mary's
stamps together!


Here again are the final design.  I had to add
some sequins!  Love the sparkle.


Thanks for stopping by!  Join us in this 
challenge for a chance to win a set of 
Cardztv Stamps.

Dates: November 28 - December 11

I can't wait to see your creations!
