Here is the tag I created using our Sugar Kissed color theme of pink and red.
I start by taking a manila tag and inking it with Vintage Photo Distress ink.
See the brown background? That is my nonstick craft mat. I love this mat! I definitely recommend it as the perfect work surface. I heard about them by Tim Holtz, who always uses them. They are by Ranger and are perfect for painting, inking and gluing. Nothing sticks and they are heat resistant. They are very similar to silpat mats, which are baking sheets made popular by Martha Stewart.
I stamped lace ribbon along the edge of my tag using Coffee Archival ink. Archival ink is the best ink for stamping! It's fade resistant, waterproof and non smear capabilities makes it wonderful for stamping and coloring. Archival ink is also available by Ranger. The stamp is by Prima but you can use a strip of real lace across the edge too!
I then stamped a swirl at the bottom of the tag using Barn Door Distress Ink.
I am creating a paper rosette for this tag, so I start with a 1 x 12 inch strip of patterned paper, scored every 1/4 inch.
I have a Tim Holtz paper Rosette Die that perfectly cuts and scores my paper, but cutting it yourself and fan folding your strip works as well.
You will then glue the 2 ends together giving you this tube shape.
You can then flatten out your rosette. You will need to glue a circle to the center of your rosette on the back. This keeps the rosette laying flat and not popping back up as it tends to want to
I then took a small scrap of paper about 2 x 3 and added a decorative strip across the bottom.
I distressed the edges and inked it with Red Barn Distress Ink. I then glue it to the tag. Next I added the rosette to the center.
I added 2 decorative circles to the center of the rosette.
I added silver glitter glue around the edges of the paper rosette.
Print and cut out Sugar Kissed cottage.
Glue cottage to center of rosette.
I stamped Merry Christmas along the top of my tag with Barn Door Distress Ink.
I added glittered dots that I found at Hobby Lobby along the side of the tag. I also added touches of glitter along the edges of my tag as well as along the top to create the look of icicles.
