I've used this week's WMS Sketch Challenge for the layout and thought it was perfect for these gorgeous new tag designs!!!  I started with a base of Riding Hood Red and layered with white, gold and more RHR that has been stamped with the Poinsettia Background stamp in Versamark.  Next I created a pocket out of white and added a strip of RHR that has been punched with the MS Deco Fan punch.  Across the bottom I've added some white organdy ribbon topped with red satin.  On top of this I've popped up a Poinsettia from Blessed Christmas that I've stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (G24, G28, R35, R37, R39) with a touch of Gold Spica and cut it out with the Poinsettia Die (I can't even begin to tell you how glad I was that I didn't have to hand cut around this poinsettia!!!).  My tag was made using the new Poinsettia Tag Stamp Set using both the tag image and one of the sentiments.  It was also stamped onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with the same Copics and Gold Spica and then die cut with the custom Tag Die.  To finish I added a little red satin ribbon to the tag and some Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the corners.


Stamps - Blessed Christmas, Poinsettia Background, Poinsettia Tag (ODBD)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Riding Hood Red, White, Gold
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Accessories - Copics, Poinsettia Die (ODBD), Tag Die (ODBD), MS Deco Fan Border Punch, White Organdy Ribbon, Red Satin Ribbon, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls, Foam Tape.
From here, your next stop is the delightful and new GRANDMA.........SANDEE!!!

Thanks for visiting and enjoy the hop!!  :)

Kathy I love how you used the poinsettia and made a pocket for the tag. Simply lovely!

Traci S. said...

Hi Kathy~

Wow! You made such an amazing piece. I love how red that red is! And, it is so luxurious with the poinsettia's imprinted onto it. I love the leaves that are coming out behing the poinsettia piece. Amazing little pocket! I can't imagine making a tag this incredible for every present!

Gorgeous details to the pearls, and the scalloped fan, (I think that is what that punch is called.)are just beautiful additions.

He IS Able,
Traci S,
