Twelve Tags of Christmas - Monday December 5th

Art ‘n Soul’s annual Twelve Tags of Christmas event to support the Thurston County Food Bank begins Monday, December 5th at 10:00 a.m.  The first tag was created by Pam and she’ll be in the store on Monday to walk you through the steps of creating this fun tag.  We'll have a new tag for you every day (including the weekend) through Friday, December 16th.

This tag was created with Poppy Stamps Mainstreet Stitched Tags (#1268).  I love this set because it contains eight dies in graduated sizes.  I used the second and third largest dies for this tag - the smaller tag was cut from watercolor paper and the larger tag was cut from white metallic paper.

I used the MISTI to stamp this tag but you can easily use an acrylic block, too.  Since the image is embossed on the paper, use the powder tool on the watercolor tag first, then stamp the Magenta ”Blessings Tree”, 07.961.L, with VersaMark ink.  Cover the image with Judikins White Diamond embossing powder and heat set with the heat gun.

Sprinkle Magenta Nuance Berry (MNU023) on the watercolor tag.  Spritz with water mixed with Perfect Pearls.  Blot gently with a paper towel around the embossed image to remove any color from the white embossing.  Gently dry with a heat gun.  Adhere to the white metallic tag, punch a hole in the top and add ribbon.

The Art ‘n Soul staff will provide all the materials you need to make the tags.  The cost to you is a donation of food or $1 which will go to the Food Bank.  We really appreciate your support to this great community program.  We look forward to seeing you in the store this month to thank you in person!
