Adornit's Make It Merry Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to my stop on the Adornit's Make it Merry Blog hop. I'm happy to be a part of it. Today I'm sharing a fun Christmas tag with you. I made it using the supplies in the Nov/Dec Findings Vintage kit from Queen Kat Designs. I used a plastic snowflake I had from somewhere (yeah one of those things you have and you don't know where it came from but it's useful at that moment :) ) and I layed it on to my tag, then I used my mini mister with water and denim ink mixed in it and spritzed the tag. After it dried, I random stamped the ornaments on it and used stickles to spruce them up. I stamped "Wishing you a happy christmas" on the tag.

The next thing I did was stamp two ornaments from the Findings stamp set on separate cardstock, color and cut them out. I used a metallic gold roller ball pen to color the centers of the large ornament. Then I added clear crystal lacquer to them to make them pop. For the small ornament, I added a button from the kit to make it more vintage like.

When the large ornament was dry, I used pop dots to affix both of them to the tag. I added the lace and some twine to the hold in the tag. Then tied two mini jingle bells from the kit to the ends of the twine.

I had a lot of fun with this kits. Come by and pick one up for yourself.

Have an awesome day. Please visit RhondaSue next.
