Funkie Junkie 12 Tags For Christmas Tag 12!!

Well by george ive done it!!!Yep can you tell im pleased with The 12 Tags for Christmas that Linda was doing over at the Funkie Junkie.Well i have completed the last one this afternoon and so chuffed!
I've taken my inspiration from Linda's colour scheme keeping it gold/cream.I distressed the tag first of with frayed burlap &antique linen,Then i stamped faintly the beautiful image from one of my La Blanche stamps.I used Tim Holtz die tag,Birdgcage and the new christmas festive greenery die,rossettes die.I embopssed the birdcage with stampin up gold embossing powder .Added some cream vintage lace ,and found these beautiful string pearls.Added to the bottom and also to the center of the rossette. Used kaiser craft pearls for the mistletoe.I then got the t/holtz ticket die and distressed using same colours as the main tag,and embossed using the gold.The stamp is from stampin up also.The pin i made some time ago from odd beads i had collected.To finish it off sprayed the tag all over with perfect pearls "Biscotti"to c reate the dazzle bling effect.

The only trouble i had was trying to take a decent photo so dark and the gold kept coming up had to stand by my french doors in the end in my craftroom to get half decent piccy.
Thats me finished until i hope Linda does it again next year,hopefully more people will get to know and join in.So what now you ask well i am all armed ready for Sir Timmie tomorrow for the start of his 12 tags for christmas so do pop by .Can't say my tags will be as good a creation as his ,but worth
Have good evening

WOYWW....Getting ready for 12 Tags By Tim

By the time you read this it will be wednesday.As im uploading Tuesday eve as i will be at the Drs tomorrow with my Daughter who has been poorly with Tonsilitis ,chest infection which has brought her asthma on .Oh how i hate the cold miserable weather.Anyways one way to get out and about is to travel the world with our weekely ritual of woyww where we all get to peek at all the lovely crafty desks.See what peeps have been upto this week.So if you want to find out more pop by the Boss Ms Dunnit's blog Here
Well i can't believe how fast time is going and we are nearly there yes 1 more day until Tim's 12 tags are you ready?Well i thought today after finishing a tag Which you can see Here,I would cut my tags and some die cuts at the ready .So thats whats on my desk this week.Along with the beautiful tag i received from Hels which i won from the Artistic stamper Blog.It is absolutely stunning thanks Hels even more so in the flesh,and just to say over the moon with your good news can't wait to see you on the 6th!!Congrats girl you so deserve it!

So are you all getting into the festive season?We sure are or the girlies are anyway.Yes we are going up to Elveden Forest on Sunday to pick our tree and get the huge new foundland dogs to bring it back to the car.They do this every year for charity they have wee cart and pull the cart and tree to your car .I will get some piccies and post next week to show you.Ive just got 3 prezzies to go,& the rest bought wrapped and ready for delivery.Hidden away,now i just have to write my crimbo cards thats chore in it self you spend time making them then you have to write i did nearly faint when i went to post office to buy stamps .Some of my cards due to content on the front will go Large letter boy is that not cheap .So next year might just be plain simple,less is more so to speak!
Here's some more rossettes in the making couple flowers already done.

Now before i go please if youve not entered my candy you still have time it ends next wednesday 6th Dec so please check it out Here.Please add yourself to Mr Linky and leave me a comment.Thats it apart from popping back here next wednesday to see if youve won!
Well ive been naughty and spending just alittle.I treated myself this week to the lovely Tim Holtz Trinket case .So excited when it arrived the next day that im still filling it.But was disappointed that i couldnt fit the wee bird cages into it.They are too high even on bottom shelf.Apart from that it holds loads and so neat.but still have loads left over so will still keep my wee chest i made.See charms ,trinkets are my downfall !Just now leaving big hints for the bigger case to hold my stains and D/ hoping i shall clear up my desk before retiring to bed....
Anyways i shall pop round to see you all again this week when i return from the trip to drs.Have fab wednesday and well see you all at Tim's blog for the 12 tags of christmas can't wait how many worse than the kids and santa!

Love n hugs

Tag 5

Linda's tag for week 5 was beautiful check it out here.I took my inspiration from the Black she had used.dont often use black on atag very rarely.

So i started by using Tim Holtz Tag die.I then had some scrap paper from last year that i covered the tag withI then distressed the tag with D/Inks the winter set and alsogathered twigs.Stamped images from Stampin up in Tea dye from SU,and Black Archival.I added abeautiful vintage image available from My friend June's website Dezinaworld.Printed it off on glossy card.Added glamour dust to edge of wings.Ther Ribbon was from an rak.The black swirls ive had for an age never used these are so glitzy from K&co.I used Tim Holtz ticket die and distressed this using gathered twigs and added festive berries to the edge.Then stamped in copper onto the tag.Made aborder from corrigated card covered in tattered Angel glimmer mist to give the shine.Added an old vintage button to finish it off.Hope you like how i got my inspiration for this tage.One thing i must use black more

Week 6 Tag 6

Again i got my inspirations from Linda's lovely tag she created for week 6 Here.My inspiration came from the Angel i so wanted to use that.Irealised i hadnt got any angel stamps but found some beautiful D/P Gold embossed from the beautiful set "December 25th "from Kaisercraft.I covered the Tim Holtz Tag Die with that.distressed the edges again with my fav gathered Twigs Distress Ink from T/Holtz autumn release.I then stamped the sentiment from the new Stampin up Release set of stamps called "A Christmas Carol"Used Clear emboss ink,then added Gold su embossing powder to get the finished look.The hessian was from Linda's ESTY Shop.The heart i had found in my stash.Whihc i added prima flowr and leaf to again added Tattered angels Glimmer mist to to get abit of bling.
Last of all added a beautiful metal angel charm with raffia to the bottom of the heart.

Week 9 Tag 9
The inspiration was drawn from The sheet music Linda had used on her tag whihc can be found Here.
Icovered the T/Holtz die cut tag with old sheet music ripped the edgdown one side added distress ink gathered twigs ...ummm guess you can tell this d/Iis a fav!
I stamped the image of Tilda Carol Singing.Cut it out and coloured in with copics adding Glamour dust to the white fur of her coat and hat .I then stamped in archival black the sentiment "Glad Tidings we bring"(by Uptown Rubber Stamp Co),randomly over the tag.The lace i dyed using D/Inks Festive Berries and added kaisercraft pearls to it.I then clear embossed the New release stamp from SU "Beautiful Season"added Ranger embossing powder "Rich Redheated with heat gun." Cut the image out and stuck to tag.Lastly the embellishment button flower made from left over material,to add couple of musical notes to the tag to finish it off.

The snowflakes are metal charms Snowflakes,corners i purchased from Linda's ESTY shop Here
.the beautiful beaded ribbon ive had in my stash for long while not used.The tag sentiment i just love this is stamped in the D/I Gathered Twigs whihc just is Lush!one of my new Favs!I then cut corrigated card sprayed with tattered ngels Glimmer mist pearl.

I added Raffier to the tag on the tag and some fibers to top of the tag.The dress pin i made from pearls and pins from my craft stock.Small glass snowflake was from an RAK.

Please check out the tutorial above as this is a fab technique and cant quite see on my tag but Tammy has some fab photo's to show you how the embossed crackle paint looks!
