Now for the crafty fun!
This year, we are going to feature Christmas tags so for SBC this is the 12 Days of Tags. Each day, we will showcase a tag or more using fun and easy techniques that we promise look good on any Christmas Package.

Today we are making a tag using embossing powder and a heat gun. If you want to impress, just emboss, lol! 

My tip: Use a Super fine powder if you have a image with small details and skinny letter, just like the tag I did above.
(the blue is Tim Holtz Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink with a dobber.)

Today we are making a tag with handmade flowers.  I think they add a special touch.
The tag I made has a crochet flower that I though resembled a rounded snowflake when I added it with the snowman paper. 
I added some "pearls" with the Viva Pearl Pen.
My tip: when you are short of paper that you want to use, just cut it in half and then place a coordinating paper in between the two sections. This gives the illusion that you are using a larger piece of paper than you really are.

Now for the AWESOME SBC DT!

DT Barbara
My tip: Use burlap and scribble brown paint on it for a textured tree trunk.

Today we are making a tag with pre-made embellishments or stickers. This is an easy peasy way to make up some very cool tags.

For this one, I used a tag from K& Company. Along with a sticker embellishment and some Wink of Stella/ Viva Pearl Pen, I was ready to go. 

For this tag, everything is pre-made from my stash. Tags are a great way to use up those old stickers you have in the box.

Next is DT Barbara with another fabulous tag for you!

My Tip: you can use embossing folders to fancy up your chipboard or grungeboard shapes.

Hope to see you tomorrow. Mack sure you leave a comment and become a SBC follower for a chance to win our Nov. Card Kit.

This year, we are going to feature Christmas tags so for SBC this is the 12 Days of Tags. Each day, we will showcase a tag or more using fun and easy techniques that we promise look good on any Christmas Package.

Today we are making a tag with using an embossing folder or stencils.

The first tag was made using a zig zag folder and core'dinations cardstock. With this paper you can sand down to get the cool embossing image to pop. To finish it off, I used a border punch at the bottom.

Now if you don;t have any folder or die/embossing machine like the Big Spot or Cuttle bug. You can still emboss on your tags. The one below was embossed on my score board. I flipped the cardstock over and scored at 1/4 and 1/2".

Next we have DT Barbara. She is the queen of multi-media/distressing.
My Tip: Color your tag first with distress inks or mists by applying them to your craft mat and spraying with water. Then lay your tag on top of the colors and swirl it around until the whole tag is colored. 

Hope to see you back tomorrow!

Today we are making a tag with rosettes
I love, love,love rosettes. They are so pretty and easy to make. It is even easier to use the pre-made ones!!!

The first tag is a rosette that I had in a drawer for a loooong time. I finally decided to used it. It had the shade of blue I wanted but the yellow had to go.
So that is what I did, I hid it!


When you have a lot of tags to make, pre-made rosettes is the way to go.



Here is an older video that I did showing you how to make homemade rosettes.
