25 Days of Christmas tags day 16


Hello and welcome. Today I am excited to be playing along with the Muse: ChristmasVisions team, who are so excited to be sponsoring day 16 of Tracey McNeely's The 25 Days of Christmas Tags. 
Our theme is vellum - to qualify this week, your project must be a tag and it must include vellum. 
I personally love vellum. I don't use it nearly enough so this challenge was tons of fun.
I have 3 tags for you, I hope you enjoy them :)
For this first one, I wanted it to resemble a church window. I absolutely ADORE stained glass windows so this set is one of my favourites! :) I used an image from the PTI Stained Glass stamp set. I stamped and heat embossed the image with black EP onto a piece of vellum. I then coloured the image in using comic markers. Next I die cut the largest tag from the Lil' Inkers, Anytime Tags, die set twice out of white woodgrain card stock from Simon Says Stamp. One for the front and one for the back. I then used the co-ordinating die for the stained glass image and cut windows in both sides of the tag. I sandwiched the velum in between the two layers and adhered them together. I cut the frame out of gold foil card stock and added frames to both the front and back so the tag would look finished. Next I die cut the word Peace from PTI's wet paint die set three times with Smokey grey card stock and adhered them together. I added some shimmer with my wink of Stella brush pen before attaching it to the front of the tag. To finish this off I added some rain stones, some ribbon and some bells for an extra kick.

My Next tag is a variation of the first but I decided to simplify it:
The technique was exactly the same as the one above. For this tag I used the PTI tag sale #5 die. I used a gold wow embossing powder. I added a sentiment strip that was also heat embossed with the same gold powder. To finish this one off, I added some nail heads and a simple gold elastic cord.

And now for my third and final tag:
I used the PTI tag sale #3 die and cut two tags, one from some PTI printed vellum and one from some Birch Wood Veneer paper from Simon Says Stamp. The wreath and timings are from the WPlus 9 Woodland Wreaths stamp set and dies. Once I cut and stamped all the images I adhered them all together and then attached the wreath to the vellum tag. The banner die cut and sentiment are both from PTI's make it market Tinsel and Tags kit. The sentiment was heat embossed onto the strip of vellum using Zing EP in chocolate. I wanted to help the sentiment strip stand out so I used a light gold jellyroll pen to outline the strip. It really made a big difference. I tied the two tags together with just a simple gold mesh ribbon.
And there you have it :) 

But before you move on, remember that there are prizes to be won both at The 25 Days and at MCV - please check out the blog posts Here, and Here, for more details.
And last but not least, a BIG thank you to all the awesome sponsors:)


I hope you find some time to play along. Thank you for visiting me.
