Fantasy Stampers

Good morning all. Hope you are looking forward to a relaxing weekend.
Just stopping by to share a couple of tags I've made for challenges and to remind you that Fantasy STAMPers latest challenge, Traditional Christmas is on for another week.
We are a stamping challenge so we need to see stamping on your projects.
Iknow you can get carried away when you see the topic at challenges, I did it myself this week!
I made this first tag for this week's reminder post but then realised that it didn't have any stamping on it so I made another which has stamping in the background.


My first tag was made using a new MB die which I inlaid into a die cut tag base, adding some glossy accents to the holly berries and leaves. I embossed the center of the bauble with a Cuttlebuf ornament EF and the die cut bow was from a MB snowflake die! 
The second tag was inspired by one I saw over at Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas, I was going to join in after my GD spot but time just ran away from me and it is now too late. I die cut the tag base then inked it with Twisted Citron DI overstamped with a Papermania holiday words background stamp in the same ink.
I made the tree by rolling graduated strips of festive paper into straws and glueing them to make the tree and pot. A die cut sentiment and some gingham ribbon and twine from the stash complete.
Check out the Fantasy Stampers DT here for more inspiration. 

I'd like to join in over at:-

Red and Green with a tree or other festive foliage
I made the first tag to start with, trying to keep it very CAS and inspired by the holly on Natasha's tag but the second is more in keeping with the majority of the other Muse tags this week


Too late, dang!!
