Holiday Tags Swap

I recently joined the Holiday Tags swap on the CMB that Barb (CricutCrazy) is hostessing and we are to make 4 Holiday Angel, a Christmas tag, a Snowman & a New Years tag. My partner for this swap is Diane (Doodles) so I hope she likes her tags when she receives them.  

This is my Angel tag.  The background paper is a sheet of metallic snowflake CS I found at Michaels. I used the Angel Anya stamp from the Greeting Farm to stamp my image and then colored her with Copics & SU markers, used stickles for her angel wings and then cut the oval, the scalloped oval & label at the bottom of the tag with my nestabilities dies. And to finish it off I just added a little bling on her bow and the label, and then two snowflakes I punched from metallic white CS with my MS punches. The little saying at the bottom reads: Whenever a snowman melts away, a snow Angel is added to Heaven that day" cute is that?

For my second tag I haven't decided if it is going to be for the Christmas tag or the New Years tag yet. I made this entire tag from the My Minds Eye Lost & Found Christmas paper stack. I love this paper with all the bright red glitter, and Vintage tones! I adhered the background paper to the tag, used the opposite side with the Christmas trees to make the Rosette, punched the Christmas tree out with my one inch circle punch and adhered to the Rosette and then I used red stickles to put berries on the tree. The 2011 little banner I made myself......I stamped the year and then went over it with red stickles once again. And then I added one of the Large Labels from the stack to the top of the tag. The picture below is a photo of  the back of this tag. 

For this side of the tag I didn't have a coordinating paper for the base of the tag that wasn't glittered so I cut a piece of paper from the Lost & Found "Union Square" collection that I have which tied in nicely. Added a Pocket with a leftover scrap of the Christmas paper I had used on the front of the tag, Cut another strip from scrap and made the little ribbon embellishment & then added one of the round tags over that to embellish the pocket. This stack came with one of the coolest little journaling labels that says "Remember these moments" and has a spot for a picture and I took the label and added it inside the pocket for Doodles to use when she receives this tag. Thanks for looking & Don't forget to leave me a comment!

Name Banner Swap

Once again I joined a swap on the CMB, and this time we were to use the Tim Holtz sewing room die and create a name banner for our partner! My partner for this swap was Melody! I used some vintage paper I had in my stash to cover the dress forms and then inked it, added trim, buttons & pearls.The Cameos & Fleur de lis are actually buttons I bought at Michael's and I cut the shanks off! The letters of her name I cut with my Sizzix dies. And to hang the banner I purchased a pkg of nylon washers at Home depot, threaded the ribbon through the holes and then glued it down with Fabri-Tac. Easy Peasy!  Thanks for Looking!
