Hi. It's the time of year when Tracy McNeely hosts her 25 days of ChristmasTags blog hop.
Today its the turn of Uniko to sponsor the hop, so the DT are sharing some festive tags with you.
Here's one I made using the Sparkling Snowflake die and the oxidised metal effect.
The ladies at CAS Mix Up are focusing on this technique so I had to have a try, so I booted up You Tube link from their site and went experimenting.
I started by creating a panel by adding Tumbled Glass refill ink to a panel of distressed turquoise/silver foiled card that's been in my stash for years. Using my heat gun, I dried the inky surface then covered it with clear embossing powder. After heat embossing the panel, I die cut my snowflake from it. The card was quite thick but I wasn't worried that all the small bits didn't cut out first time as I liked the look, any loose bits were taped in place on the back before adding it to a circle of embossed white card. A hole punched into the top and some silver chord complete.
I've also made a second tag with one of my sentiment panels.
This time I die cut a tag from a panel made with clear embossed stamping on kraft, inked with Vintage Photo DI. A circle of tartan DP, a couple of stamped and die cut holly leaves and some twine and a button, all edged with Vintage Photo DI complete.
The rest of the team have a great selection of tags for your inspiration over at Uniko, but to enter Tracey's blog hop link up here. You'll also find all the Ts and Cs there too.
