Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas - Tags #10 and #11

I've got all of Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas done accept for yesterday's which will be posted soon!  Today I'm posting my versions of Tag #10 and Tag #11.

Tag #10 was designed by Maile Belles.  I was happy to see a clean and simple design after the intenseness of  Tag #9 yesterday!  Here is my version of Maile's tag:
First I cut a tag out of Kraft card stock using Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplate die.  I stamped two sentiments from Compliments of the Season by Waltzingmouse repeatedly in rows to cover my tag using Versamark and embossing it in white.  I used both satin ribbon and wrinkled seam tape at the top.
The trees and star are from Teeny Trees and the sentiment is from A Cottage Christmas - both sets from Waltzingmouse.  I used Worn Lipstick and Evergreen Ranger Distress inks for the trees.
Tag #11 was designed by Carolyn Parker and here is my interpretation of it:
My angel is from Earth Angel and the peace sentiment is from Festive Foliage.  I used a piece of sticky back canvas behind her instead of the cloth that Carolyn used.  I drew faux stitching around the edges with a fine tip brown pen and sponged the edges with Ranger Distress Tea Dye Ink.  I paper pieced my angel's dress and wings with the same patterned paper I used to cover the tag.
I didn't have the Tarnished Silver Glass Glitter Carolyn used so I used Ranger Distress Tea Dye Stickles around the edges of my tag.
I tied a triple bow through the hole at the top of the tag using wrinkled seam tape and attached a silver brad from Stampin'Up to the center.
On the bottom I attached an oval metal frame from Stampin'Up.  I stamped 'peace' on a piece of Vintage Cream cardstock, cut it with the small oval punch by Stampin'Up then sponged the edges with Tea Dye ink. It fit nicely inside the frame.

So - there's just one more tag to go and I'll be done!  I hope I haven't bored you to tears with all these tags...?!?!
