Happy Friday!

How about some tags today?  I made a couple that I want to share.  I made this first tag using a sentiment from the Christmas Sentimentals - Jingle Bells stamp set.  I stamped out "Joy" with Tsukineko Memento ink in London Fog onto a piece of Ultra Smooth Premium White Card Stock.  I punched it out with a circle punch and inked the edges with some blue ink.  I colored a clear bling with my Spectrum Noir Marker in BT7.

I've been playing around with my inks and sprays.  I started with a large pre-made tag from the Art Value Pack at Crafter's Companion.  There is great value with this pack of tags.  It is less than $8 for 100 tags!!

I pulled out some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Tinsel and Tropical Teal.  I sprayed a few spritz of each one onto my craft mat and then I just drug the tag base through it until I got the look I wanted.  Then I dried it with my heat tool.  You could just wait for it to dry but I was too impatient! ha  SO pretty!!

I was in the mood for circles soooooo I took my Tsukineko VersaMarker watermark pen and drew some random circles on the tag.  I sprinkled on some opaque white embossing powder and heat set them.    Then I added the stamped sentiment with a pop dot for dimension.  Then I grabbed some Liquid Pearls in Silver Pearl and added two lines of dots.  And finished with some clear bling and some ribbon in Grey and White.

On my second tag I trimmed out a tag shape and die cut it using the Sizzix Tim Holtz Noel Die   I backed it with some red patterned paper that was a scrap on my desk.  I layered these onto a tag base.  I layered some patterned paper that I received from my friend, Fia onto the same red patterned paper. Then I fussy cut the ornament out of the same paper and added it to the tag with a pop dot.  I finished with some red ribbon from my stash and I custom colored the bling with my Spectrum Noir Pen in JG6.

Thanks for stopping and looking today!  Until next time...happy scrapping!
