Twelve Tags of Christmas - Wednesday, December 14th - Day 10

Art ‘n Soul’s annual Twelve Tags of Christmas event to support the Thurston County Food Bank began Monday, December 5th.

Dianne created this tag for Wednesday, December 14th, the tenth day, and she’ll be at the store all day to show you how to make it.   We’ll have a new tag for you every day through Friday, December 16th.

While you are at the store, be sure to take advantage of our Twelve Days of Christmas daily special.  On Wednesday you can get 50% off a tool or product from a select basket, with a minimum $30 purchase. Don't forget, just for coming in, you can fill out a ticket for our drawing! For each $10 pre-tax that you spend, you can fill out another ticket. The Twelve Days of Christmas runs through Thursday, December 22nd.  Follow our blog or Facebook to see the daily special.

Like yesterday, I have two versions of today's tag. For the first tag, I die cut two tags using the Sizzix Super Scallop Tag die (sorry this tag die is no longer available from Sizzix, but you could cut a piece of paper to at least 3.25" x 4.5", round the corners, and punch a hole in the top for a similar size tag). One was cut from Neenah Solar White cardstock, and the second from green cardstock. I also die cut a Merry Christmas sentiment from Curious Metallics Super Gold cardstock, using a Penny Black die 51-248. The poinsettia pattern was cut from the green tag, using a Sizzix Tim Holtz die 661602, Mixed Media Christmas, that came out this year. 

After cutting the poinsettias from the green tag, it was adhered to the white one. The gold Merry Christmas sentiment was adhered underneath, and a red ribbon was added. A little bit of Diamond Stickles was added at the center of each poinsettia.

For the second card, I chose a red cardstock, and cut the poinsettias out at a slightly different angle so there would be room for a stamped sentiment.

I added my favorite sentiment of this year, the John Lennon Peace quote from Magenta, 07.956.F. The sentiment was stamped onto the cardstock with Versamark ink, and embossed using JudiKins White Diamond embossing powder. The red tag was adhered to the white, and a ribbon was added. A little bit of Diamond Stickles was added at the center of each poinsettia

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.

Our MISTI order is scheduled to be delivered on Friday, December 16th, and we will get a case of the standard size and a case of the minis. If you have a paid order, you will get a call when they arrive. If you have an unpaid order, or you want one for Christmas (or just want one) please call or come in and pre-pay for one. These are often sold out before they arrive! 

We have also received a shipment 
notice from Ranger, and that shipment is scheduled to arrive on Monday, December 19. We will get Yupo paper, alcohol inks, the small packs of watercolor paper, and more!

We have sent in a Hero Arts order that will be shipped very soon!
