Celebrate the Season Tags from Taylored Expressions

Hi everyone,

This week has been filled with a lot of drama - sickness and a swirling whirling lot of trips to the doctor's and hospitals. I have often dreamt about Calgon taking me away! But in the meantime before I am swept  away by bath salts, I just wanted to share some tags that I made using the sweet stamp set: Sparkle and Cheer from Taylored Expressions. This was a two part tag - the top layer is a clear acetate sheet that is cut out and embossed with snowflakes (Tim Holtz) and the bottom layer is a sheet of bazzil blue paper (pearlescent) that is cut out with a strip of paper that allows a layered look with the blue scalloped strip on the top of the acetate sheet. 


The two are attached by a jumbo eyelet and then attached with a silver ribbon and outlined with liquid pearls. I stamped the sentiment and then adhered it with layers onto the snowflake punched out with the large snowflake die from the Winter Wonderland Snowflake dies (set of 3) Taylored Expressions. It was fun to create an assembly line and here is a bunch of tags created with this awesome die and stamp set:


Here is another angle showing the dimensional-ity of the acetate sheet on top of the blue cardstock:


And here is how the tag looked when layered on top of each other - love the embossing on the acetate layer:

Tag Ingredients:
Inks: Bahama Blue and Danube Blue
Accessories: Liquid pearls, EK success scalloped border edge, acetate sheet, jumbo eyelets, silver ribbon, circle punch, snowflake die from the Winter Wonderland Snowflakes (set of 3) dies from Taylored Expressions.

I always forget to make tags in the holiday crafting mode, and am so glad I have some fun tags this year to make presents special. 

Hope your holiday season is filled with celebrations!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari
