Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas - #2,#3 and #4

I'm playing a little catch up here with Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas -  today I have Claudine Helmuth's Tag #2, Julie Ebersole's Tag #3, and Jennifer McGuire's Tag #4!

Here is my interpretation of Claudine Helmuth's tag #2:
First I painted my manila shipping tag with Hydrangea Pink Acrylic Paint by Delta.  
The cute little VW car with the presents stacked up on top is from Amuse - called Car Load.  First I stamped it on white, then paper pieced it with dotted papers by PTI.  My dots are made with White Enamel accents by Ranager -  but I don't think I shook it enough because they dried clear rather than white!!??!!
The music and Naughty or Nice pieces are paper ribbon that I purchased many years ago at a ribbon shop in Wolfeboro, NH.  The red woodgrain is Washi tape from Freckled Fawn and the cute pom pom ribbon is by American Crafts.

Next is my interpretation of Julie Ebersole's Tag #3:
I had a bigger mitten than Julie's so I only used one -  and I didn't have a glassine envelope that would fit the space left so I didn't use one!
The mitten and sentiment are from the Sewing Box Christmas set by Waltzingmouse.  I embossed it in white on red card stock.  The snow flake is from the Winter Wonderland die by Tim Holtz.  I tied a piece of wrinkled seam tape around the mitten and let it hang down.

And my last tag for today - is my interpretation of Jennifer McGuire's Tag #4:
For this tag I used my Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplate die (that I forgot I had!!)  It's bigger than the Avery Shipping tags I've used on the rest of my tags so far -  but of course that means more space to fill as well!! The Peace sentiment is from Ornate Ornaments by Waltzingmouse.

I used a text background with a wonderful old world font from the Text It set by Waltzingmouse - embossing it in white and then sponging the tag with Ranger Distress Broken China.
I didn't think I could color my bird nicely the way Jennifer did hers - so I just sponged the edges with Ranger Distress Brushed Corduroy and added a rhinestone eye.  I layered a die cut pine bough from the Tim Holtz Festive Greenery Sizzlit die over the branch the bird is on. sure to check out Ellen's fun tags for Christmas -  there are prizes to be won if you link up your tags!  I'll be posting tags #5, #6, and #7 shortly I hope you stop back!

I think my fave is your aqua striped tag with the red mittens. It is so crisp and clean and modern looking.
