Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge
First of all I would like to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!
It has been a little while since I have participated in a blog hop and thought it was about time I got back into it again.
This monthe was to create our own tags. I have made one of my ideas. I wasn't able to finish the others. This tag I used the Tag Sale #1 for my base. When I saw Dawn's new Signature Series dies and saw the flower I wondered if it would work for a poinsettia. I cut out three in Pure Poppy and distressed the edges with Scarlett Jewel ink. I then crumpled them up and smoothed them out a little. I glued some gold beads to the center. I used an image from Turning a New Leaf and stamped it in New Leaf ink. I distressed the edges of the tag with Tea Dye Duo ink.
These next tags I made special for my grandkids. I just love Dawn's Vintage Ornaments dies and wanted to use this one especially since it is my favorite! My husband printed me out copies of some of their pictures and I then cut them out using a 1" punch. I used Shimmer paper and distressed the edges with Encore metallic silver ink. It doesn't show up well in the picture. I used my copic R29 to color the silk 1/8" ribbon and the little bells I found at Joann's.
Happy Blog Hopping!
