STAMPlorations Christmas in the Air March Projects

Time for the STAMPlorations March Christmas in the Air Projects by my 
Teamie Monika and I.  It is never too early to start your Christmas card stash:-)

This is our 3rd Feature Project.  Our last project will be the 2nd Wednesday in May.



I had fun designing a mixed media Christmas Tag for one of my Projects:-)

Here is a Close Up of the shine on the Tag!

I die cut the middle sized "Luggage Tag" out of mixed media paper.  
Then used Distress Oxide inks to smoosh colors onto the tag.
Heat embossed the Typografia Christmas sentiment using DOX ink and clear EB Powder.

Next splattered the tag with white acrylic diluted paint.
I loved the shine from the heat embossing so added Versamark pigment ink
to the entire tag and heat embossed with clear EB powder. Loved the shine!

I found the wooden snowflakes in my stash and heat embossed them for more shine.
Then added the thick twine and die cut white cardstock with the luggage die
for the back of the tag and Done!

Luggage Tags Nesting Dies,  Typografia Christmas Peace, Love & Joy.

For my 2nd project I designed a Tag Card. 
A quick CAS Christmas card design:-)

Stenciled the Dots All Over stencil with Nuvo Glimmer Paste and attached
to card base.

Next die cut tag with Stitched Tags Nesting Dies and stenciled with ARTplorations
Holly Background Mini Stencil using Zig watercolor markers.

Then placed in MISTI to stamp the sentiment from Homespun Christmas.
Popped up tag with white craft foam and Done!

  10. I love your Christmas tag, Nancy! It's so fantastic with the heat embossed large sentiment and then having the heating embossing over everything. Lots of shine. Those wooden snowflakes are fun and rustic, perfect with the thick twine. Your tag card is so pretty with the glitter stenciled background. The gray and red stenciling is so pretty with all that white space. xx
