Countdown to Christmas tag 22

I first cut out a tag from an old book page. I then stamped the family and a simple damask shape that I created with clear embossing ink(I used Versamark as I have used it for years and it was one of the few available on the market when I started stamping) and clear embossing powder. I then used a foam blending pad to cover the whole thing with Crimson Red Versafine ink but you could do the same thing with any other ink you have and then just use a paper towel rub the ink off the embossed area. I backed it with the Ivory thick stock just to give it some support and layered on all the other pieces. Can I say I love liquid glue dots from Helmar for attaching dimensional items? I have used these for years. I attached the blingage piece to the little black clip with it.

I wanted to use my maiden name as part of these tags but Japanese kanji doesn't really match the Noel line so I have decided to just cut it out and cover with glitter and hang this by the tags in my front hallway. Ok so I now have a stamp my whole family will want.

    Would love to in these products. I make cards and semd in once every months.

    I also do cards for soldiers, so I stay busy. I have an illness that keeps me in Pj's for months at a time, so I know something about being sick. This is why I make so many cards to donate.
