Today I made some tags. On my first project - I used the new Nutcracker Sweet set that has this great round stamp with the nutcraker's head and sentiment in it, the pretty garland, wreath and berries as well as the snowflake! There are also two complete nutcrackers as well as two size Christmas Trees plus many more sentiments and little trimmings!
First I did all the stamping - then I sponged around the edges with Ranger Tea Dye Ink and swiped down the center with Mustard Seed to brighten it. I layered the store bought tag to a piece of cardstock that I had punched on the bottom edge. Then I just trimmed close to all the edges around the tag. Finally, I spritzed the tag using a mini-mister filled with water and a little bit of Gold Perfect Pearls. It has a little shimmer all over IRL - hard to see in the pic. This would make a lovely gift tag.
For my second tag I used a sentiment and snowflake from Nutcracker Sweet as well as two stamps from the Music Background set. I stamped one of the music stamps randomly on the tag as well as some single notes.
Again - I sponged the edges, this time with Tumbled Glass, adhered the tag to a piece of punched card stock and spritzed with the water and Gold Perfect Pearls mix. It can blur the ink a little but I like the look! This would make a nice gift tag or bookmark don't you think?
