Twelve Tags of Christmas - Thursday December 8th - Day 4

Art ‘n Soul’s annual Twelve Tags of Christmas event to support the Thurston County Food Bank began Monday, December 5th.  The fourth tag in this series will be available on Thursday, December 8th.  It was created by Pam and she’ll be in the store to help you create this lovely tag.  We’ll have a new tag for you every day (including the weekend) through Friday, December 16th.

This tag features the Poppy Stamps Main Street Stitched Tag set (#1268), the new Magenta “Stars” stencil (TM180), the Penny Black “Manger” die  (#51-254) and a sentiment from Impression Obsession (B13487.

The largest die of the Main Street Tag set was used to cut the tag from Neenah Solar White, 110# cardstock.  Use the powder tool on the bottom section of the tag, then stamp the sentiment using VersaMark ink.  (We’ll be using the MISTI in the store but an acrylic block also works for this step.)  Remove the tag from the MISTI and pour Judikins Gold Detail embossing powder over the sentiment; tap off the excess powder and heat emboss with a heat gun.

Cut a small mask from a stick-it pad the size of the sentiment and place it on the tag, covering the stamped sentiment.  Place the Magenta Stars stencil over the tag and use a large dauber to apply VersaMark ink through the stars, onto the tag.  Move the stencil around to get the coverage of stars that you want.  Next, apply dry Perfect Pearls (Pearl or Confetti White) over the stars with a soft brush.

The Manger image was cut twice – once from Neenah 110# card stock and once from gold Mirricard paper.  Layer the gold diecut over the white one and adhere together.  Adhere this piece to the tag.  Punch a hole in the tag and add gold twine.
The Art ‘n Soul staff will provide all the materials you need to make each day’s tag.  The cost to you is a donation of non-perishable food or $1 (or more if you would like) for each tag you make.  All donations go directly to the Thurston County 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.
