Easy Holiday Distress Tag

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Wrap It Up

We are showcasing Tim Holtz Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.

I still can’t get over how easy this tag came together.  I don’t do anything quick, just ask my husband.  I actually added the 2nd layer because I just felt like it was done too quickly.  I’m glad I did, I love it with the 2nd layer.

The challenge is Wrap It Up so it could be a tag or a bag or a box or anything to do with wrapping it up.  I chose to do a tag.

I ink blended Faded Jeans, Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers on a Distress Tag all by Tim Holtz.  I added some water flicks to get that oxidation going.  Then I heat embossed this adorable tree image called Tree Sketch, also by Tim Holtz with some silver embossing powder.

I heat embossed the Joy sentiment from the Stained Glass Greetings set by Simon Says Stamp in silver E.P. as well.

I grabbed another tag and ink blended just the Faded Jeans and Blueprint Sketch before stamping the Plaid Background stamp by Concord & 9th on it.  I added a little tinsel ribbon that I had in my stash and tied both tags together!!

If you’re more of a visual person like I am, I’ve included a process video below.  I hope you’ll click on it and take a look.  I added a fun little clip at the end of our local volunteer firefighters participating in the Candy Cane Run.  Check it out to see what it’s about!

  So now it’s YOUR turn, Happy Crafting!!
