Unity Addicts Challenge #30

Hello again.  Today I'm a guest for Unity Addicts Challenge #30 at Splitcoaststampers, and the challenge is to make tags.  Here's my tag:

I love making tags for Christmas especially.  Today's tag is made using Kraft cardstock, with stamping using two of my favourite Christmas stamps from Unity (see below) and a pretty patterned paper from Pink Paislee. 

First, cut the tag using Spellbinders Labels 4, I used the largest die.  Distress the edges with Distress Ink Antique Linen.  Add some stickles around the edge of the tag.  Leave to dry.  Then stamp the snowflake scalloped stamp (from Snowflakes Fall From Heaven set) randomly with Versamark on the tag.  Ink up one of the cute trees from the stamp set Peace.Love.Joy with waterbased markers, and spritz some ink blending solution so that the colours blend and stamp on the tag.  Next, stamp the Christmas definition stamp onto a cream cardstock.  Cut out the cardstock to fit the bottom of the tag & adhere with foam adhesive.  Use a fancy edged scissors to cut the Santa image from the patterned paper and adhere to the tag with foam adhesive. Tie a red gingham ribbon around tag and adhere a chipboard button on the bow as shown.  Add some blings on the tree.  Punch a hole at the top and add some jute twine and the tag is done!

I've made another tag just for fun.

This one was made with a stamp from All Worth It stamp set and the ornament is from Bright & Merry Winter Wishes.

I hope you play along with the challenge and you could win a prize. ;)
