Those We Love - Tag

Here is a tag/ornament using #Quietfire stamps with a bit of a grungy feel!
 I used manilla for the whole project - because I hardly ever do and it was high time! {Note: product links are at the bottom of this post} I used the Tim Holtz On The Edge Snowflake die to add a border to the tag and coloured it by blending Distress Stains (Bundled Sage, Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky).  I wanted some interest and texture on the tag, so spread Dreamweaver Translucent Embossing Paste on the tag and then pressed the Spellbinders M-Bossibilities Holiday Magic EL-014 into the paste.  The embossing folder was quickly cleaned in the sink before the embossing paste turned to cement in every cranny!
After the embossing paste was dry, the tag was spritzed with water and then the same Distress Stains were used again.  Before the tag dried, grains of Walnut Ink were scattered over the surface  and allowed to "melt".  I love all the hit and miss partially formed shapes.
The Snowflake Frame/Coaster and Heart Snowflakes were cut from manilla cardstock using the Silhouette Cameo and coloured with the same Distress Stains.  The flourish was cut from Beckett Cambric Beet.

Those We Love are the Snowflakes was stamped with the aid of a Stamp Positioner using Versamagic Night Sky.
The tag elements were assembled as shown in the photos using Be Creative Tape and Pop Dots - after Snow-Tex was applied with a spatula.

Thanks for having a look!

  1. I could imagine a whole tree of these as ornaments with different quotes from your Christmas collections. The layering and background are astounding to me.
