Still at it!!!

Another day another tag.

While I was thinking about how to create today's tag, I finished my holiday cards which I will be mailing next week.  I'm sharing them here today in addition to my  tag.
The stamp is "Christmas Collage" by Stampin Up.  It is a multi piece set which leaves many options.  For this card I used the base stamp (done in Sepia archival), the poinsettia, holly and saying (done with t!m Holtz specialty stamp pad technique and distress inks).  All stamps were stamped on cream card stock.  The holly, poinsettia and words were then fussy cut (did I mention I really don't like to fussy cut), thin pop dots were placed on the back then all were adhered to the base image.  I added Rock Candy Distress stickles to the red areas of the fussy cuts.  A drop of Champagne stickles was added to the middle of the poinsettias.  The word Joy was colored with a Garnet Copic marker.
Although time consuming, I really enjoyed putting these together.  I hope those receiving them will be equally as pleased.

Now..........On to the tag!

Until today, I only thought my creative resources were being challenged!  I absolutely loved the tag t!im Holtz created for day 4, but I went with a warmer palette.  Once again my supplies were challenged, but the fun in creating these is using what you have on hand and learning the techniques.

Once again thanks for visiting.
