Saturday Showcase - Christmas Tags

Happy Saturday to you!  Christmas is rapidly approaching so the team over at The Funkie Junkie Challenge decided to do a special Saturday Showcase and everyone created a tag!  You need to pop over there to see what wonderful designs they cooked up for this very special showcase!

I was inspired by a cooking challenge that asked the contestants to do a white on white baked display.  It had me thinking about what I could create with layers and dimension all in white!

I decided to start with an stamped and embossed background to give a layer of soft texture before I even layered on the die cut bits and pieces.

The hardest part of this tag was getting a photo. :)  The white on white is hard to capture the beauty of the shimmer, glimmer and softness.

I stamped the background with Versamark and heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder.

I die cut all the various pieces and then covered them with versamark and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.

It gave them a lovely sheen.  I then assembled my poinsettias with pop dots between the centers and when I attached them to the tag.

I took a few of the metallic droplets and painted them white and then sprinkled them with distress crystal glitter.

 I finished the tag with a white bow and painted a charm white to coordinate.

I wish you and all your loved ones a very blessed and happy holiday!

  2. Wow, Suzz, your elegant tag just takes my breath away! I love the white on white layers, and you have carried this this off to perfection from the embossed background to the poinsettias, the sentiment, the drops (squeal!), and oh, my stars! That fluffy bow! This is all just jaw dropping, and I think you did a fantastic job with your photography! I'm so happy you were inspired by the cooking show, and now you have inspired ME! Wishing you and your family a wonderful, blessed Christmas!

  3. Oh what a wonderful tag Suzz! I love the moulded icing look you've achieved allowing the design to take centre stage. In fact it looks good enough to eat! Thank you for sharing your creative genius. Happy holidays! xx
