Twelve Tags of Christmas - Thursday, December 15th - Day 11

We only have two days left in the Twelve Tags of Christmas event.  We have two more tags for you, Thursday, December 15th and Friday, December 16th.  Pam designed this tag for Thursday and it uses a technique that was previously shown on our blog.

While you are at the store to make this tag be sure to take advantage of our Twelve Days of Christmas daily promotion.  On Thursday wear blue or green (or your Seahawks shirt) and you will receive 30% off the price of any blue or green item in the store.  This promotion is limited to stock on hand.  Also for every $10 pretax you spend, you get one entry for the big grand prize drawing.  The Twelve Days of Christmas runs through Thursday, December 22nd.  Follow our blog or Facebook to see the daily promotion.

Today’s tag features Distress Crayons, the Penny Black “Elaborate” stamp (#40-489) and Tim Holtz Vintage Tidings Die set (#661605.

The tag has been cut from watercolor paper using the largest die from the Poppy Stamps Main Street Stitched Tag set (#1268.)  Use the powder tool over the entire tag, then stamp using VersaMark and the “Elaborate” stamp.  Cover the tag with Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  Heat with a heat gun.

Select two coordinating colors of Distress Crayons. The sample uses Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet.  Make several small dots of each color on the tag.  Use a baby wipe to blend the dots of crayon – do all of one color and then move to a different spot on the baby wipe and blend the other color.  Gently wipe the entire surface of the tag to remove any bits of color from the gold embossing.

The word “Noel” has been die cut from two colors of So Silk Black Style and Fashion Purple paper.  Glue the two pieces together, black on the bottom, and then glue to the front of the tag.  Punch a hole in the tag and add ribbon.

If you want to see this technique used on a card, click here to see the whole technique from our November 4th 2016 blog post.

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.
