Hello Blog Friends!
I'm so pleased you were loving Jan's tatting yesterday. It's something so delicate and beautiful and I would never have the patience... so I will stay admiring her lovely work!
Today is Sunday Stampers time and this week Hels Sheridan set the theme of 'The Holly and the Ivy' - at the moment I am making lots of tags for family gifts, they are also one of my favourite things to make, so this week's project is a tag - and a big one!
It's a 7inch tag, which I made with plain card, using an actual tag as a template and then covered with music paper from a Christmas collection by Teresa Collins. I inked the edges with Antique Linen.
I then used some off white/cream card to cut the window, using Spellbinders Decorative Chateau Gate and lined the inside of the shutters with the music paper. I cut some holly from Spellbinders Holly Accents to decorate.
Now for the stamping - both of these are little stamps by Crafty Individuals. I have used the sentiment stamp on quite a few cards and tags this year and the Santa is very detailed.
I stamped Santa on black card using Versamark and then heat embossed using snowflake embossing tinsel - it's such a shame that the photograph doesn't show how much it glistens. I stamped the sentiment with black archival and heat embossed using Black Sparkle embossing powder.
To finish off I added some 'berries', a little colour on the stamped holly with a Berry Red Promarker and some ribbon....and that is my project for this week!
Thanks for looking,
